My daughter had this picture that someone had taken with their phone which is why it is so blurred. But, I just loved the smiles on these three and felt compelled to scrap it.

I used Birthday Bash to make the banners and Heritage for the journal frame and flourish.  The design was lifted out of the Cricut Magazine I received this month.   I put a different twist on it my putting more muted colors grabbed off of the Heirloom Imagine cartridge and added the snail to add a bit of quirk to the fru fru.I think the Brown polka dot paper was from Making Memories...not sure though.  The background white scalloped paper was cut using the Elegant Edge cartridge.  I haven't figured out what I am going to say in the journaling spot so that is blank for now.

Bingo Babe

This is my good friend Patty.  She and I play bingo together.  She amazes me at the amount of cards she plays in one game. She can go and get a cup of coffee during the game and then catch up when she gets back.   This is a  picture of her on a light night.  Just amazing.

I used Tim Holtz's sizzix embossing folder to make the bingo card.  I brushed the tops with a white ink pad, then sprayed it with Tarnished Brash Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.  The title was cut with Plantin Schoolbook on my E2.  The flowers are prima and I go the feathers at Michaels. I glimmer misted little paper doilies with Key Lime glimmer Mist.  The background paper is My Minds Eye. I also added buttons and brads but I have had them so long, I am not sure who made them.  The pearl centers in the flowers are from Melissa Frances.

Cake Marathon Weekend

I have been baking cakes for three days now. Today is the day they will be used. One is for a baby shower and the other is my Husband's 50th birthday cake.  Happy Birthday Sweetie!!! I love you.

I used Martha Stewart's Everyday Cake, Kate's ABCs and Mothers Day Bouquet cartridges in my Cricut Cake.

The Toy

I submitted this for the weekly challenge in the Cricut Circle.  Dalton loved this one toy so much, he played with it non-stop until the end of the party.  He wouldn't even stop to eat cake.  When we took it way to open the box for him, he cried.  That was a great gift.

I used Blast Off to make the title and Hopscotch for the papers.  I also used the Imaginesce I-Top tool to make the buttons, and Fiskars border punch for the edging underneath the title.  The tab was made with a tag I cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.

Every year my cousin pastes pics of her fraternal twin girls on facebook.  I scrap it every year and post back.   They are very sweet little girls.

I used Cricut Imagine's Berries and Cream cartridge to make the papers.  I airbrushed the doileys with a copic pen and  the scroll on the corners are from the Cricut Essentials set that came on the E2.  The rest of the designs were cut with Kate's ABC's.

You, I Adore

This is a pic of our DIL with our youngest Grandson. He was wearing the hat we gave him for Christmas.

I used Ashlyns Alpha for the title, Tags, Bags Boxes and More for the tags and Elise in the Imagine for the printed papers.  I die cut the butterfly from a Sizzix die, then stamped it with an Old Martha Stewart stamp set I had of leaves.  Believe it or not, I only used three brads, a bit of chip board and three pieces of white paper to make this, Loving my Imagine.

Love Valley

My girlfriend Betsy came down for Easter Weekend.  She has been wanting to go to Love Valley, which is a western town near here where you can only ride horses, buggies and wagons.  She bought red boots two years ago in anticipation of coming. 

I used Country Carnival, Country Life and Old West Cricut Cartridges to make this.
