I was excited when I found the camel on the Cricut Cartridge  A QUILTED CHRISTMAS. 
I LOVEEEEEEEE that commercial!!!!!   I did my cuts in the CCR  on my Mini Cricut.  I used EXPRESSIONSVINYL.COM  vinyls.   You can't tell it but my lettering is blue glitter.  I used the CCR BASIC cartridge for the letters.

ERNIE joined our family Thursday dec 05th. 

My first smash book pages

This past summer my Husbands company treated all of its employees and their family to
a night out at the ball field  at the Smokies Ball Park.  Exit 407 off of I-40  Their was so
many it was a 2 night thing.  Jun 14th and Jun 26th.  They also served us a meal under a
giant tent.   So I decided that this would be my first smash booking project!!!!


I got my letters from Hobby Lobby and used DCWV PAPER.   I used liquid applique for the snow and the snow men came from HL. 


I bought this bag maker Thursday at Hobby Lobby and I love it.   MCT is giving away a box
maker as a prize I got my fingers crossed that I win  but in am also looking to buy on if I don't
I love the bag maker.   The top pictured is just a few of the bags I made.  This wonderful tool
is from WE R MEMORY KEEPERS.   I stuffed candy inside and a gift card!!!


I used lots of scrap Christmas paper mostly it was from DCWV I got the stickers from Hobby
Lobby some of the dates are from CTMH and Peachy keen stamps, the bow is the latest from
MCT.    The mooses are from the silhouette store.  I also used stickles, Liquid glass.  I had
fun making this.  It was my first time making one.   Hope you like it.   oh  the box with the
drawers came from Hobby Lobby :)

Basket for my Mom

Heres a wooden basket I got at the Tractor Supply  for 6.95  it had the word Flower on both sides
but I painted and added   LAVERNE'S BATH AND SPA  to it that I done in the CCR I did the butter
fly from my cameo.   The bunny I made from watching a youtube video.  is where I got the goat milk soap base and the molds came from an
etsy  and for the life of me I can't remember which one.  If I find it I will post it  all I can remember
about it was that the molds came from China .

I'm Back I hope !!

I have been sickly this year.  I just had surgery on my Thyroid on Sept 30, 2013.  Up till that point
I got to where I couldn't hardly breathe and swallow my food.  Was using an inhaler thinking it was
asthma but it was growths on my Thyroid.  Now I can breathe normal and eat better. 

This is after healing 13 days.  They glued this bandage which looks totally yuk!!!  Don't know
when they will take it off.   But I can't hardly wait!!  Its still pretty sore.  Gonna be on meds the
rest of my life because they had to take all of the Thyroid.  But that's ok.  :)

Here is a project that i made for Emma's Designer Challenge over at  Embossing is the object !  I used cuttlebugs Devine Swirls
and embossed the top of the toe area.  I also made a tag to go along with this using MCT dies.
The projects is a svg that i purchased from  called HAPPY TRAILS.  This
was a little challenge for me.  Cut it out on my new cameo.  The pattern paper is some i printed
on my imagine using the HEIRLOOM cartridge.  Ribbon and twine is from Liz's Paper Loft. 

Ink is Momento rich cocoa.  These new pictures i tried to capture the diamond stickles i
added after posting  i think it made the boot look so much better  of course the pictures
don't do justice.
