Cupcake Catastrophe and Friday Top 10 with Cocoa Daisy

Hi ya everyone!  It's Friday, and therefore, time for another top 10 here at Melissa Made.  Today, I'm sharing one of my new favorite obsessions, Cocoa Daisy!  Cocoa Daisy has FANTASTIC kit subscriptions.  I have to say, they have the best kits around.  The above layout was created using the May kit - Record Label.  The only two things not in this kit were the black thickers (March add-ons) and my white acrylic paint for splats of cupcake.  The little folder is a great place to journal too.

This is such a fun story about my little one turning three.  She was so excited about her yummy cupcake, that she dropped it!
Tears quickly ensued before we could even tell her it was ok, she could have another.  Finally, a new one was plopped in front of her and she was all smiles once again! Now, on to my top 10.

Top Ten Reasons Why I LOVE Cocoa Daisy

10. I don't have to think about it!  Everything is right there for me.
9. A FABULOUS variety of products: from twine to paper to embellishments, did I mention everything already matches?  Check out the June kit!! YUMMY!
 8. Beautiful colors that are trending and new (and they match).
7. A super fun group to chat with and hang out with on release days (28th of every month)!
6. Project life kits, scrapbooking kits, and stamp kits for each month, oh and they match :)
5. An easy to access gallery to upload your projects.
4. Lots of inspiration in the gallery and from the wonderful design team members.
3. AMAZING customer service and quick shipments!
2. Beautifully packaged products that come completely in-tact and undamaged.  More June deliciousness!
1. I'm scrapbooking again!!!!!!  This is HUGE for me as I didn't want to take the time to find things to match.  Now, I store my kits in large ziplock bags and everything I need is there.  My time to scrapbook is cut in half and I still have a beautiful layout when I'm done!
*I am in no way paid by Cocoa Daisy or provided with any of their lovely products.  I truly just LOVE them and subscribe and pay for their monthly scrapbooking kit!*
