Chaos challenge-Create a critter & Cooking with Cricut

Cartridge Chaos Challenge Link
Cooking with Cricut Challenge Link

it was super sunny when I took the picture so its kinda hard to see the mountains in the back. I sent this off to one of my lovely cousins who is attending school in Colorado, hence the snowy mountains and the snow actually puffs because I used my snow pen.

These challenges are super fun!!!!!!!!!

Dude cartridge

I made this card has a first project took 5 min

Twilight Layout

I found  Pixie Dust Studio on the blog and I fell in love. I am a Twilight fan and I just had to have these digi's that you can find here I hope you like them as much as I do. I intended on doing more but the baby was being stubborn and would not sleep so I only had one hand available most of the time and I wanted to be done in time to apply for the Pixie Dust Studio DT which has a deadline of today.

Let me know what you think and don't forget to follow!

Wacky Wednesday color challenge

I am so happy with this card! I love the way that it came together even though it was not my original ideas.
I used the Paper Doll Dress Up-Frankenstein and I added the groom vest and bow tie to make him romantic.

I am entering this into More Than Favors challenge Here this challenge is for the colors pink, green and brown.

Hope you like!!!!

A cute card

I wanted to use my Pagoda cartridge because I noticed I only used it twice before and this is what I came up with.

I used my left over embossed paper from the SEI challenge I posted before.
I used my Scrappy Moms Stamps of Amusing Animals that you can find HERE

Thanks for stopping by!!

SEI with Abby #1

I am so excited because I am finally able to link to Scrapaholic Abby's challenges again. These past few months have been insane and the last couple of weeks everything I do is a little here and a little there. I started this on the day the challenge was posted but I kept feeling like I needed something. Finally, on a time crunch I decided to just leave it alone already. I hope you like it and don't forget to visit Abby at her blog

Here is my card: I used PKS for the face, Play Time cartridge, a flower background stamp I bought at Archivers with red embossing powder, PinkbyDesign Twine, Scrappy Mom's designer choice stamp and gypsy wonderings with my wonderful scrapbook adhesive and pops:

I think I will add some faux stitching when I finish homework.

Thanks for visiting!!!

I wanted to join the challenge for Scrappymoms 1st ever Terrific Tuesday but I did not have the Birthday Bash cart. I was lucky enough to have a wonderful friend (Jessica at who let me borrow her Hello Kitty cartridges because I wanted them so badly. This is the card that I came up with and I started a number of other things too but I have been so busy with the kids and homework and regular everyday housework.

I hope that you all like it!!! Don't forget to become a follower!!!!!!!

Catching up!

I have seriously been slacking on the postings again. Here are some of the things that I have been doing and hopefully later I will have a chance to actually load the pics from the camera because these are from the iTouch and don’t look very pretty.

Thank you for taking the time to look and don’t forget to share because I want to raise my followers and give out some candy!

These were all made for my daughter’s birthday party and I mainly used Sweet Treats cartridge, my Martha Stewart score board and my EK success scallop punch.

I made these cards last year but I saw them on the computer and I wanted to share

So, this is a banner I made for a boy baby shower and there are a bunch more that I made to go with it but I will have to post the pics later on.

I made this card for a wonderful person who was kind enough to pick up a cartridge for me and mail it to me (Michael’s 9.99 sale)

This card was made for the fun of it. I just got this Create a critter cart from my boyfriend and I could not wait to use it. More to come soon!!!

I will also be participating in a few blog hops in the next two months and I can’t wait to show everyone my projects!!

Thanks again!!!

A giveaway

Once I reach 150 followers I will have a package ready to send to one lucky follower...stay tuned for more details

My decorations for my step-sons 3rd birthday and his first with us!

We were all so excited to be able to finally have little Alex for his birthday so we threw him a last minute party that turned out WONDERFUL!!! I would post more photos but unfortunately I am not able to because of silly reasons but I will leave it at that....

 I did not have much time to prepare so this was all I was able to complete (besides one Piston Cup trophy that I forgot at home).

This week I am working on my daughters party decor and I have a few extra days so hopefully the kids will allow me to complete everythings.

A gift for my boyfriend's boss

 This was the front and the inside of the tri-fold card.
This is the wooden frame that I made. She loved it!!

Hope you all love it too! Enjoy!
