Challenge Me Monday # 29

Wow, working and school is taking so much of my time.  I wanted to do this challenge because it is about stitching.  I have sewing machine, but don't know how to thread it.  Help ANYONE!!! PRETTY PLEASE.
This card uses faux stitching.  I love making smile cards because the just make me feel better.
The stamp says ' If you're happy and you know it, Give Thanks'!!  Let's give thanks everyone.  My job introduced budget cuts.  While I will not be directly affected just yet.  I am very thankful for my colleagues who help make my job easier and are grateful for their support over the 5 years I have worked.  Lastely the ribbon accent tag was cut with the Cricut Imagine More cartridge.

SMILE and Remember to be grateful and give thanks!!!

Just Be You

This card was cut with the Cricut Imagine.  I used a combination of cartridges.  The little girl was cut from the Imagine Best Friends Cartridge.  The Rest of the cuts came from the Paisley cartridge using the Imagine Hopscotch color and patterns cartridge.

My First Video

I know I will get better with time, but I am so excited

Halloween Semi Homemade Treatbags

I found the perfect size treat bags at Biglots.  I spooked it up a bit with a metal rim of Peachy Keen Monster Mash stamps.  I used Holiday Cakes pumkin border and a witch stamp from Michael's Hero Arts Brand.  I am going to make three varieties in all for my son's kindergarten class. Spare parts for the candy brad.  Hope you enjoy

Labor day 2010

  I shipped my family off and along with a little relaxation, I was able to eat bbq, use the computer, watch football, CRICUT, do a little laundry, shopping without any interruptions.  But in the end I really missed my family being so worsome.  LOL

My First Two Page Layout-Taking a Bite Out of The Big Apple

I have been wanting to do a two-pager for some time and was a little nervous about it.  This week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge was to create a project on the theme vacation or travel.  Well I have had these pics for a long time and new the last greatest place that I have been to with the fam was New York. So since I didn't want to mess up the originals, I scanned them and decided to use a selected few in the layout.  I designed it in my Gypsy.
