I just got my Create a Critter cart and thought , (what better time to use it  than now).  She loves frogs so I made the cute little frog on the first page.

Abducted by ALIENS???

No I haven't been abducted by aliens :) hehe..although it feels like it, It's been so hectic. I have been wanting to make this card ever since Emma (over at mycreativetime) had her challenge to make something old school style without using the cricut..Better late than never I guess. It isn't exactly how I envisioned it.. but I think it's cute anyway. I'm not really good at coloring in the stamps (little new to me) but I gave it a try. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you liked it.

A quick note.

For anyone wanting to get some of the cricut lite cartridges or didn't get to get any of the special ones they had for the after Thanksgiving sale....Walmart is having a cyber week special 2 cricut lite carts for 45 dollars. That's a pretty good deal, since they are regularly 39 dollars a piece. They only have 4 of the carts that they had on Black Friday.. Twinkle Toes, Cupcake, Zoo Day and Inspired Heart.. sadly I didn't see the Jolly Holidays on there :(  So if your looking for some lite carts at a pretty good price then you'll have to head on over there while the sale is still going on. Hope this was helpful to someone. Have a good night, and thanks for dropping by.

Just a little chat...

Hi, hope that  everyone had a safe black friday. I work in retail and know how crazy it can get sometimes. I had to be at work at 4 a.m. sooo.... no staying up late for me. Although my WONDERFUL daughters did brave the sale for me and  got some of my wishlist items including the cricut lites that were on sale. ( I feel so loved !) Can't wait  to use the Jolly Holidays. It looks so cute!!

Bowling anyone??

I had these pictures from a few years ago that I hadn't scrapped yet , so I thought I would get going and get it done. I didn't have any carts with a bowling theme on it ( not really sure that I have seen any out there)
so I decided to make my own. I used the mirror from PDDU and just used the hide contour feature to hide the inside line on it, turned it upside down and then after I cut it with my gypsy, just tweaked it a little (voila! a bowling pin lol.) I used a circle and then welded 3 smaller circles inside it to make the bowling ball. Then I made a bigger bowling pin so that I could use my peachy keen stamps on it ( I just love those things they are so stinkin' cute!) I think it turned out pretty good. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Peachy Keen Mini-challenge

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend. This is a card that I made for the mini challenge, that Peachy Keen is having over at . The challenge is to make something with polka dots, white as the main theme color and one of their awesome stamp faces. I decided to make a Thanksgiving card. Can you believe it is only 11 days away. This year has just FLOWN by. I used the PDDU and the DC cricut carts and the scallop oval is from ACY. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks so much for stopping by. I love your wonderful comments.

Hello again!

I am finally able to post a project that I have done for the peachy keen challenge over at Things have been pretty hectic around here and I haven't been able to do much crafting :(. I am pretty much getting in under the wire on this one...( but that is about how I roll hehe.. ( can you tell I have teen aged daughters lol ). I made an ornament wreath for the challenge. The wreath and poinsettas are from the Christmas cartridge and I used the face from one of  Peachy keen's awesome stamp sets. Glittered the flowers added a bow and some ribbon and voila! An ornament for the tree.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Smiley cards

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good evening. Sorry I haven't gotten to post much lately. I've been SUPER busy!  We are remodeling my laundry room.. can't wait until it is done. I'm just loving the new cart download that I got on the Gypsy. The smiley face  cartridge is sooo cute. I thought I would try to play around with it for a minute and make a card. Since the winter holidays are fast approaching, thought I would make a snowman. It is really easy to work with. Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by.

"Reindeer" in training :)

Good morning everyone. This is the card that I am entering in Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge over at .  This weeks challenge is to create something with a Christmas theme, using Celebrations (or if you don't have that an older cartridge.)  Celebrations is more of a birthday cartridge so I had to put my thinking cap on :) . I decided to cut out the dog with the party hat on. I was going to make the hat  a santa hat, but then I thought about the cute little dog on How The Grinch Stole Christmas... so I decided to make him a "Reindeer" in training hehe. For this card I made the border using the 0 on page 91, I put several down flipped them and welded them to a 5 3/4" square on my gypsy. The dog is from page 112 . I cut the hat off so that I could add the "antlers", which is the hat topper from page 104. I used PK490- Everyday face assortment from Peachy Keen stamps. I did'nt have the Everyday Character Face Parts (which I have got to get! Love Love Love their stamps..) so I modified the Stamp that I had adding a little to the nose and mouth.  I used my White gelly roll pen to stich around the edges for the finishing touch. I hope you like it, and really appreciate all your comments. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, since it is almost Halloween. I thought I would share a scrapbook page that I made when I first started scrapbooking a few years ago....

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I really appreciate it.

Another Challenge!!!

It's Throwback Thursday again, (well actually it's friday.. but you know what I mean haha). Emma has another great challenge going on over at The challenge is a sports theme using an older cricut cartridge. I am using Sports Mania, it is a great cartridge for all you sport enthusiasts.. it has alot of different sport themes that you can use:)  This is a 2 page LO, that I made of my daughter when she was in volleyball. I used the I dig volleyball from the cart on one page and the background feature for the  other page, I tweaked it a little. I wanted the blue to show through a little more so I used my craft knife to make the cuts a little wider. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

My...How time flies:(

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a happy Tuesday. I'm working on some challenges that are going on right now hopefully will be able to post them soon. In the meantime I thought I would share with you a 2 page layout that I made of one of my daughters. This was taken when she was 4... she is 17 now. It actually took me about 3 days to finish this because I would start to tear up everytime I started on it, remembering when she was little and wishing that my baby hadn't grown up soooo fast. Sorry about the pictures I just couldn't get the light right on them and kept getting a glare. Thanks for stopping by.
