The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter Z

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter Z.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their Z element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

Zip, zoom , zap….is what December how fast December has gone around here!  I almost didn't get this post done despite reminders!  Yes we have been busy with piano and violin recitals, concerts with choir and the USAA band and our sons's birthday on December 9.  

We couldn't figure out how to fit the boys' birthday party in until last night.  They couldn't agree on ANYTHING including cake, what to do, theme, etc!  Finally they compromised and we got it scheduled!  No specific theme and cheesecake fro the cake and How to Train a Dragon 2, all compromises!  

So mommy, me, got a little crazy looking on Pinterest at Harry Potter fare and created butter beer, butter beer cupcakes and cockroach clusters all from the Harry Potter books!

But my real Z is Zip and Zoom!  The snitch from Quidditch in Harry Potter!

 If you are unfamiliar with the snitch it is extremely fast and zips around the Quiddich field trying not to get caught (kinda how I feel this time of year!)
All I did was take a wing shape on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and welded two together in the Cricut Craft Room and cut!  A Ferrero Rocher candy, remove the little paper cup and the sticker and glue dot the wings on!  Voila instant Zippy snitches every where!

I glued them to the top on a box of candy and popcorn as the kids treats to take home!

Enjoy the rest of the hop and come back next year when we start over at letter A again!
