A little something for Delia, a tag and yummy rolls

A few days ago I posted a calling made by Jenn to send a 10y-o girl Delia some cards to cheer her up. So generelously, Dustin Pike gave for free some owls images to use (Delia loves owls), and this is what I made to sent her
is an altered old CD, the image is colored with colored pencils that I turned out into a she owl adding a little flower, I made the sentiments on PS, I tied also a string of glass beads so it can be hung, the papers are from Provo Craft. I hope I can steal a smile from her little face with this little gift.

Yesterday we celebrate the birthday of a dear friend. We take a bottle of wine to give him and I made a tag to go along with it instead of a card
I used a Bugaboo digi stamp on one side, and a Michelle Perkett digi stamp on the other side of the tag, both images were colored with colored pencils and I added some glitter glue on the icing of the cakes.  I cut the tag with my Cricut and puched some little holes with a needle over the border. What a fun time we spent! we went back home at 5 am!!!

And lastly I promised I was going to show my mini rolls
I used a recipe from a famous cook and amazing baker in my country: Marcelo Vallejo. They turned out fine, they tasted really good. Anyway, they are not exactly like I wanted to be so there are two things I´m going to change on this recipe: temperature of the oven first, you can see the almost dark brown shade of the rolls... second I need to improve the flavor, I wanted garlic flavored rolls but they don´t taste much like garlic, so I´ll use more garlic next time. Here are some pictures of the stages you have to go over: 1) make the little balls, 2) let them rise and 3) baking!

 PS: if you want the recipe of the rolls, please e-mail me and I´m gladly send it to you.
