300 DPI October Challenge

I love digital scrapbooking and I am torn between traditional and digital.  This is my entry.  Die Cuts With a View has a wonderful website that allows you to download the paper packs that are in the store for only a fraction of the price.  This is my little critter below and boy did we have a time choosing a costume.  He wanted to be Bumblebee the Transformer.  Actually we were Optimus Prime last year.  But boys will be boys.

Throwback Thursday Challenge

This week's Throwback Thursday challenge for My Creative time for me with Emma ****Must be an "CHRISTMAS" theme project!****Use "CELEBRATIONS" cartridge .  

This was indeed a challenge for me, but I was so anxious to use my Imaginisce Christmas Cottage paper and my wonderful I-Top tool.   The brads were made using the I-Top tool and Christmas Cottage paper.  This is my new fave.  So for the challenge I used the card feature and accents on one of the cuts to make my son's Dear Santa list that we will be mailing to the North Pole.  Hmmm.  I wonder what happens to all those letters?  Hope you enjoy

Circut Circle Challenge Entry 3

Now that midterms are over, I finally had a chance to craft a bit.
This halloween bag was made for the Circut Circle Blog Challenge.  In the challenge, we had to make a project and incorporate vellum, plastic or clear bag so I decided to make a treat bag.  I think if I make another one, I would use candy that nots so heavy.  But this is my version of a Halloween candy tree.

Love Memory Box for the Cricut Circle Blog Week 2-10/11 Challenge

The Cricut Circle Blog is up and running.  Beginning today, you will have to be a member of the Cricut Circle to access the blog.  The Challenge this week was in honor of Breast Cancer and we were asked to create a layout, card or home decor object with and incorporate Three of the following things:  Pink, Scallops, Glitter, Flourishes, Jewels, and Ribbon.  I decided to create a home decor project.  I was shopping at Hobby Lobby the other day and found this little cute cardboard box (50% of so I paid $1.24).  I covered it with  ColorBok (Walmart) cardstock to dress it up. And boy did my imagination start flowing.  Since it was the first box, I have done, I didn't add a lot, but now I think I am going to get some more and and do a theme set.  This particular box I am going to use to put all of my momentos from the various races for the cure that I have participated in over the years.

1 5 x 5 cardboard box from Hobby Lobby

Wow.  I am one happy I-rocker.  I won a prize on the Imaginisce blog, but there was a problem with the shipping so I called and talked to a wonderful staffer(She was one of the ones at the recent Cricut Swarm) and she mailed me all of these goodies.  I got some wonderful bling, templates, and I rock (The entire collection), flowers and the Cottage Christmas Collection.  I feel like a kid on Christmas Day!!!
