Pearl Vase Bouquet

“For a moment Anne’s heart fluttered queerly and for the first time her eyes faltered under Gilbert’s gaze and a rosy flush stained the paleness of her face. It was as if a veil that had hung before her inner consciousness had been lifted, giving to her view a revelation of unsuspected feelings and realities. Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps. . . perhaps. . .love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath. ”

Free-Printable-Cake-Topper--My-Crafty-Spot-1

It was my good friend’s birthday yesterday and I wanted to do something special for her so I decided to have a girls night at my house and bake her a cake! Anyone that reads my blog knows I am not a good cook and I am certainly not a good cake decorator. Check out my halloween cake below….. yes… that is the extent of my cake decorating skills. So for this cake I decided to make a free printable cake topper that hangs from dowels. It turned out so good that I wanted to share it with you!!

Now don’t zoom in too close, I don’t want you to see my cutting skills. They are about as bad as my cake decorating skills. But to be fair…. my friends were on their way over, my daughter was screaming because I had crushed her last graham cracker for the cake and  my scissors were covered in sticky residue from my last duck tape project. Soooo… Im hoping if you use this printable your circles come out better then mine 🙂
