You Take The Cake

How many idioms do you use?  I use them all the time and it drives one of my daughters crazy.  Many of them don't make sense and she get tired of asking "who started that? and what does it mean?"  I use a lot of them without thinking much about it but I was curious about "you take the cake".  It actually came from being a winner of a cake walk.  How many of you knew that?  You never know what trivia you are going to learn on someone's blog!
Well, with all that aside, let's go onto another phrase that I have used a lot for my kids and grandkids - Sweet Stuff.
This sentiment and the image are both Doodle Pantry digital stamps and from the set Cake and Cookies.  Doodle Pantry is the sponsor for this month's challenge at the Die Cut Divas.  (and also happens to be my favorite digital stamp company).  I cut out the cake image and green layer with Die-namic Stax .  The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinder Ribbon Tag then sponged with a bit of brown ink.  The flower was cut with my Sihouette but the leaves are cut with a Cuttlebug die.
There is still over a week to play along with this month's challenge - Something Yummy to Eat.  The challenge ends May 31.

  1. I love your post. I often don't think of what the idioms I use really meant, but I love to hear how they came into existence. And I think that cake is very YUMMY!

  2. Well I never knew that! You do learn some things out here in blogland!
