Yes girls, it's true, I met Dr. Carlisle Cullen. I'm still so excited about it, I can't believe it really happened. This LO is framed, and hanging in my scrap area, I want to be reminded everyday! The only Cricut used was the date, from Plantin Schoolbook. Papers are DCWV, and Me & My Big Ideas. K & Co stickers, and misc flowers. TFL!!!

Hi to everyone!! Here's my little guy on his first day, he was so excited. I had a lot of fun making this layout, I used Simply Sweet for the title, and Doodlecharms for the bus. The papers are from the Target $1 bins!! Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

Here's Mikey (on the right) with two family friends on the 4th. See, I'm catching up! I used Doodlecharms for the stars, cut them 3 times and then embossed the red ones, and God Bless America comes from Beyond Birthdays. The black paper is Coredinations, and the flag paper, I honestly don't know. Just know it came from JoAnns. TFL!!!

This one had me stumped for days, I had no creative mojo whatsoever. Finally I remembered that I had a jail cell on the My Community cartridge, and a little person! How perfect! And the title was done using Pooh Font, very simple. It's still missing something, but I can't exactly figure it out. I'm just happy to have this layout done!

I made this pretty thank you card for my cousin who loves all things skulls, using my new Indie Art cartridge. Papers are from the DCWV Rockstar. Ijust inked the entire thing and used pop dots to give it dimension. I don't always care for my work, but this one is now one of my favorites.

Can I just say that I love the font on this new cartridge!? It's too cute...I can't wait to use it some more! For this LO I used DCWV Doodlin Around paper, my Christmas Solutions cart for the snowflakes, and misc skittles. I love this photo of my son, he was only 3 months old here, I wish I could keep him that age forever!
My bff lent me her Animal Kingdom cartridge, and while I do love it to peices, I can only imagine using it for layouts like these. I also used my Plantin Schoolbook and Mickey Font cartridges for this, and some vellum I found stashed away. Did a lot of inking on the letters and the elephant, and I used the Animal Crackers stack from DCWV.

Here is my first ever challenge, and I loved every bit of it!!! I love love love this movie and I love making cards, so this was perfect. I used my Beyond Birthdays cartridge, some SU! Rub Ons, misc ribbon and papers! The image I had just laying around, I wasn't sure what to do with it...perfect for this type of card!!

I bought this wooden frame at M's for $1, slapped on some paper, some flowers I had laying around, a little bit of Stickles, and used my Simply Sweet cart for the words. This is my son and my bff's little girl when they were babies...they're such good friends. These make awesome gifts!

Hi everyone!! I made this last night for my bff's little girl, she's turning 4 next weekend. I used the HK card feature, cut at 7", then just cut a regular HK at 7", (the card feature alone just didn't look right..it didn't fit) and then used the silhouette for the black. Purple glitter paper for the bow, nose, and heart. To make the card heavier, I then cut another HK and glued to the back. Sorry for all the babbling, it's hard to explain!!! TFL!

This is from our trip to California last summer, I've really been wanting to scrap this for some time now. Finally late Friday night I sat down to do it, and wouldn't ya know it, I was dead tired and the creative juices just weren't flowing. So here it is, my forst of many LO's of our trip. I used PS and my Potpourri cart for this one, misc stickers. I want to go back to SF soon, it's a beautiful city with tons to do!

Here's a picture of me (after a very long day) with my freshly painted E, and my new Simply Sweet cart that I won from www.createyourheartout.com. I am too excited!!! Go check out the website, it has a lot of tips and really good contests, and the girls there are wonderful! XoXo

Here it is!! I've worked on this all weekend, and I can't be happier with it. I just can't wait for my lil guy to see it! Carts I used: SB, HK Greetings, and PS. Every gift has a different character, and in the front is a tin I altered. I also used misc papers, stickles, and brads.

Mikey cracks me up, he's always mad at me about something. I made him even more angry when I took this picture of him! But he still loves his Mama, I think this is just another stage he's going through. I used Me and My Big Ideas papers, Plantin Schoolbook for the title, misc felt stickers, and SU markers.

For this page, I used my Christmas Solutions cart, and Plantin Schoolbook, along with some hand stitching, Stickles, and scraps...I love the pic of lil man, he was in awe at how beautiful the tree was. This LO was fun, as Christmas is most favorite time of year...I love everything about it!

This is one of those pages I just kept putting to the back of my pile; and I don't know why because it was such a special occassion in my son's life: his first rock concert! lol! Glad I finally did it though. It looks a lot prettier in person with all the Stickles...

Wasn't in the mood to scrap today, but wanted to make something. So here it is, some 3x3 Twilight magnets! I'm really diggin the way these turned out, they're even prettier in person. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with them....the girls at work will laugh at me if I use them in my office.....

Playing around with my Cricut today, and decided to make a Bug Head magnet. Note to self: use a heavier cardstock. This was my first time using Mod Podge...still not exactly sure if I did it right. But like everything in life, it's a trial and error, right?! My next one will be better, I promise.

I am so excited about my new purchase, that if I could do a cartwheel, I would. I went to Ikea over the weekend with my son and cousin, and found this AWESOME craft table on clearance!!! Granted, it was a pain to put together, but the blisters on my thumb are so worth it. It's almost doubled my workspace...I'm seriously considering purchasing another one.

I had so much fun making this layout, in fact, I'm not even certain I'm done with it. The cupcake from my Doodlecharms cart has become my favorite by far. And the glitter paper I used for the icing,I'm hooked!! I'm going out later today to see if I can find some more. I don't know why I haven't done layouts like this for the previous years. It's nice to document my likes and dislikes so I can look back when I'm older.

Here it is, my corner of the basement. It's expanding, slowly but surely! Eventually I'll add on another section, since I'm running out of workspace. And my lil guy needs a table of his own, too! Notice my fur baby to the left, she has her own warm cozy spot to relax while I'm crafting away. Now if I could only find a way to hang stuff on the walls, then this would be my perfect getaway!!!!

Ok, it's not the best, I'll be the first to admit it. But, it's something, at least. I think the Mother-to-be will like it, and that's all that matters, right? My next one will be better, if the need shall ever arise. I just need more practice! XoXo
Here's another layout I'm pretty darn proud of. This one just flowed so nicely, maybe because ever since I've seen the movie, and read the books, I've been obsessed! lol Don't make fun of me...there are plenty of grown women out there that share my passion for this gorgeous vampire. Don't be ashamed!!!!
Wow, my first post! I've had an account here for awhile, just never knew what exactly to do with it! But since I've joined the Cricut Messagboards, I've become so inspired, learned so much, and decided to give it a try. So being that it's only 2 days before Mother's Day, I thought I'd share my newest layout that I made this afternoon. It's of my dear Mother and I, the last day I saw her alive. Please, don't feel like I'm trying to bring you down or sadden you in anyway...I just wanted to dedicate an entire layout to her, my best friend. Any and all comments are always welcome, too!!! And once I get the hang of this blog, I'll post some other work I've done. But until then....XoXo
