I wanted to be sure everybody knows where they can find the HSN Gypsy offer online. You can see the details and even buy with the 5 FlexPay option at $59.99 payments and free shipping. Two full carts--Gypsy Wanderings and Gypsy Font--as well as Don Juan. Add in the car charger and bag. Very cool! Get it now and you can also get 500 extra points in Cricut Rewards for a total of 700!

All in a day...

I was looking forward to using a kit from one of the deal of the day sites(can't remember which) and so I grabbed these pics of my B from Mothers day at the zoo. It's the My Minds Eye, Laundry Line set of papers and embellishments(Flirty "Embrace"?). The colors are so pretty and the striped cardstock is actually glittery and shiny. :) I had a quite a few papers and embellies, and let me tell you this made it so easy to put together. I used some basic cardstock stash and a cut from my Cricut cart Storybook...also my Martha Stewart border punch. Then stuck on the chipboard shapes and rub-ons. Of course it needs a few finishing touches and journaling but it was great to get stuff done so quickly. This could be an option for taking to crops!

Cricut celebration!

Wow! Cricut is celebrating their 100th cart, Winter Woodlands! I have to say I can't wait to get one of those carts for myself. :) I have had tons of fun in the snow and I love the idea of creating a winter village with my girls that's 3D! DH dug his childhood train set out a few year ago and a village would be a great addition this year. I can even see a gingerbread house not made of cookies this year as well as bunny houses and playthings. Not to mention the beautiful embellishments for the winter season scrapbooks. Way to go Provocraft, it just keeps getting better and better. I love my cricut for getting me back into scrapbooking and crafting. Your company has truly enriched my life, and what more could you ask for? Check out the new cart at their website here.

From this:
To this:and then some! After weeks of pushing paper and pictures around I finally got this one done! I cut out many more extras but ended up with something I am reasonably happy with. The font is Hello Kitty and New Arrival for "love" and the clipboard is from Fabulous Finds. The stamps are from Close to My Heart, two different sets.
I will most likely add some journaling around to fill in a bit but am glad to move on to another project. In fact it's one I can really be excited about. I will be trying a new technique for a challenge RAK my friends are offering and also sending it on to a very special boy. My friend Megan's nephew was recently diagnosed with an brain tumor. I am happy to report the doctors got it all out, but he still has a little ways to go before he is all recovered. I am hoping to cheer him up just a bit. Please add Jackson to your prayers, and tune in soon for the finished a few days! :)

Thanks for stopping by and adding your thoughts....
