My Creative time

Hi Everyone,

I was so pressed for time for this post, I think I got it in one minute before midnight! Whew, but I got it in... I was a little busy this weekend and wanted to make time for this challenge.

Emma always says, "Think outside the box" So I scrolled through my daughters pics, looking for at least one where it looks as if she's in a box, thinking of trying to get out. I think this one kinda of fits the image of what I was looking for. I used Tinker Bell and Friends cart to try to help her in her

I hope you enjoy the layout, have a blessed day!


P.S. I just thought about it, we were working with a color and I missed it all the way...I don't know how to remove it. I hope you enjoy the picture anyway.

Another Challenge

Hi everyone,

Once again I would like to say thank you to everyone who is following my blog, I really appreciate each and everyone of you.

I came across this challenge site (StuckonSketches) through one of the blogs that I am following and I am really glad I did, I kind of got away from scrapbooking until a couple of weeks ago, I had to do a couple of books for friends. It gives you layouts to complete. I used DCWV Flower Shower Spring Pack. The cart was Tinker Bell & Friends. I cut Iridessa at 5 1/2" the flower at 4 1/4 I believe and the Mushroom at 2 1/4. I hope you enjoy my take on this layout.

Have a blessed day!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd get another challenge in, this one is for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge. You have to create a project for a baby shower, invitation, etc... Well it just so happened that I just finished creating a scrapbook as a baby shower gift for my new great nephew, Jayce. Here is a couple of layouts, and it fits in well with the challenge.

Jayce's scrapbook was based on Nursery Rhymes and this layout is Jack and Jill. I didn't have a cart with complete bunny on it so I improvised. The bunny rabbits on the layouts are a cross between the doodle charms mouse and bunny head, the bucket/pail is from that same cart. The water is a flower from the Home Decor, lettering is from Don Juan. Here is how it turned out, I hope you enjoy it.

Have a blessed day!

InLinkz Challenge #1-Boy birthday card

Hi everyone,

Just want to welcome my new followers and say thanks for following my blog, with that being said, on to the reason I am posting today.

I am entering InLinkz Challenge #1, it is to make a boy birthday card using a specific color palette. Hopefully I have met the qualifications. I am calling my card "Roaring Birthday" In the phrase cloud it reads; I hope you have a roaring birthday, just in case you can't see it. I used the Everyday Paper Doll and the Create a Critter Carts.


Plain blue and green paper are from Cricut Rainbow, the Pattern blue is from the Celebrations both by Provo Craft.

Black and white from Joanne Fabrics, Value Pack. I think the gold brown looking paper is from Hobby Lobby.

I used the pedestal style card 6x6. The Sky 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 Grass 2 1/8 x 5 3/4.

Guy and his accessories are cut at 3", Mountains and tree are 1", Track is at 1 3/4" and the Phrase Cloud is at 1 1/2 I think.

Grass is cut at 4 x 5 3/4", Lion is at 1 3/4", Engine and car are cut at 2 3/4" Rail road caution sign is at 3" Track is at 2" and ROAR is at 3/4".

That completes the recipe... I hope I didn't leave anything out.

I hope you enjoy the card, have a blessed day!
