Girly Pinks...Tutus, Magnolias and Cupcakes

Today was the last day of Spring Break and we were blessed with the most lovely gift...sunshine!  We headed out to the park and I brought my camera along to photograph these beautiful pink magnolia trees to share with Beverly's Pink Saturday Party over at How Sweet the Sound.

Maggie and I had one last project to finish before spring break ended.  We cut several yards of pretty pink tulle and made a fun tutu.  Want to make one with your little ballerina?  I found a great tutorial here at I Heart Naptime.  Maggie looked so adorable in her pink tutu, we of course had to have a little photo shoot!

I love all shades of pink but I think my most favorite is a lovely soft rosy hue.  I recently discovered that several drops of red food coloring and 1-2 drops of blue produces the prettiest rose petal pink colored frosting. 

Happy Pink Saturday dear friends!  Thank you so very much for stopping by!  I sincerely hope you are blessed with sunshine and surrounded by beauty this weekend!

Best Wishes and Blessings,
