New Challenge at Paper Cutz

This week our challenge at PaperCutz is anything goes! Do whatever layout, card or craft project you like in any theme. This is one of the layouts I created for the Cricut challenge for the 5th birthday. I did not win, but it was fun to do a few layouts to enter. I have never done that before and it was fun. I used a variety of cartridges and will use this for my granddaughters birthday which is coming in June. She loves Minnie and all the Disney characters. Come and join us this week with your project.

Cooking with Cricut Spring Flowers Challenge

I haven't been able to enter many challenges lately, but decided to try to sit long enough to complete one from over to Cooking with Cricut. I love Melinda's blog and all her wonderful creations. Stop over to her blog by clicking the link and join her Spring Flowers challenge this week. She also has a wonderful design team who have created great projects. For this layout I used the cartridges April Showers, Lacy Labels, and Lyrical Letters. I can't wait to find the right pictures to add to this layout.

I took the plunge!

I was so excited to watch the HSN presentation of the Cricut Expressions 2, that I stayed up to watch the midnight reveal. As soon as I saw some of the great features it has, I knew it had my name on it. I purchased within the first 15 minutes!!! I taped the show and continued to watch throughout the day because with each presentation, I heard more. I should have it next week and I can't wait!!! I think a couple of the things I liked the best were the light on the blade and the paper guide. So many times I get it going crossways. I love the no overlays needed and how it brings up each button images clearer. I do have the gypsy, but will like this as well. I can't wait till the Cricut Craft Room is ready!

This week over to PaperCutz, we are to make a card, layout, or craft project using pink, green, blue, purple and white. You can use a little black, but do whatever them you like! I admit my project was very simple and easy because I was having a really bad week health wise, but after yesterdays visit to a new specialist we finally found the problem. I am definately not happy that two professionals who are suppose to be able to read MRI's totally missed something that was causing me severe pain which they thought I was over reacting to the pain for what they said was wrong. Yesterday I got a treatment that will ease the pain till we try another procedure before having surgery. Now enough about me, and please join our challenge and let us see what you have created!!!!!

Challenge 86 at PaperCutz this week

This week over at PaperCutz the challenge is to use a stamped or digital image on a card, layout or paper craft. I have been working on so many scrapbook pages I have neglected cardmaking for awhile. I decided to do a card with this cute stamp and I am pleased hour it turned out. I just used scraps for the card and a punch. I think the stamp is from Stampendous and the saying is from somewhere else. Join us and let us see what you can do!!!
