Antonio (boyfriend, husband guy) had a coworker who ordered the Expressions from the infomercial for his family. Well they never used it so he sold it and gave me the cartridge!! I was soo excited to get it!

I open the door today to check the mail, and sitting there is a package with another one rubberbanded to it. I know one is my Sesame Street Font, but what is the other? Well, I open it up first and sitting inside the envelope is the Cricut Sampler cartridge!! Along with the cartridge is a letter from Provo saying they put a indefinete hold on the Cricut Demo team. I was soo excited to get this cartridge, I have wanted it forever!! So, know that makes 29!! Hmm should I go for an even 30?? If you wanna see a few pics we took, you can head over to Boy Scrap'r and see them there!
I am also posting a picture of some of the things I got from CKC this past weekend. The pic only shows day 1, I did not get a pic from day 2. Off to finish dinner! Have a great night, we planned on eating outside tonight but its raining! You know now that I think about it, it has rained every night since we got out new patio furniture.

CKC Houston!!

Well, I made it thru CKC without spending every dime I have!! Mostly because I worked the Piggy Tales booth, so I made back what I spent plus some! This was the first year I have been to CKC, and had such a great time! I got to meet up with friends, and also meet lots of wonderful new people. In addition to buying some wonderful scrap items at a wonderful price! I also helped out at the Piggy Tales booth and Jennifer was awesome! I helped her with the make and takes and just about everything else!

So, what did I buy? Well what didn't I buy! I bought, stickles (like I needed more), glue glider pro refills, tombo refills, felt from Queen and Co, Bling bling, brads from eyelet outlet, 12x12 mats, ohh a HUGE fiskars cutting mat for $8 (this thing is HUGE dont know the size off hand and I am sitting outside) and of course Piggy Tales stuff! Oh, and 2 new scrapbok shirts one says and this is may fav; Work is for People who don't Scrapbook, and the other says; It's all fun and games until someone gets there eyelets punched out!.

I also got to see Cricut Dan in action! Learned a few things from him too! Well thats all for now I will post more later! Have a wonderful day!!

Thanks to my good "Scrapbook Friend" Kristin, who called me up yesterday to tell me how I had to go and get the Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge! Why, because of the strawberry! Anyone who know's me, know's my daughter LOVES strawberries! The funny thing is when I went over to Michael's on Sunday to pick up the Lyrical Letters cartridge (which is awesome by the way) I picked up HK Greeting, and the strawberry caught my eye but I was good and put it back! Until the the phone rang, and I took my happy little self back to m's to buy my new Hello Kitty Greetings. Now I have 28 and can say at this time there is not a single cartridge on my "need" list!

Any how, today I decided to play with DS and HKG! What fun I had!! I made a strawberry mesh page! It came out soo cute, and only took me half a day and 3 test cuts to get it just right! If you would like the cut file, leave a comment with your email address and I will send it to you ASAP. It does need to be cut on a 12x12 mat. Also, with a thick piece of cardstock, pressure max, speed max and blade 6. Trust me makes it alot easier when trying to get all the little pieces out!!

Mr Mixit and Miss Cricut

So, I got a Kitchen Aid mixer last week and LOVE IT! I had been posting about it on my scrapbook group, and they had been making fun of me! Saying how I was probably decorating it with my cricut and vinyl. They all know me so well. They also named them Miss Cricut and Mr Mixit!
My layout I did this week for Whimsical Bugs dt was to use a favorite lyric or saying. I used Mr Mixit and Miss Cricut, along with the lyric "You can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you get what you need"

A layout

I have FINALLY completed my layout of me for the whimsical scraps dt challenge! I did put it off a week, but only cause I knew I would have such a hard time with it! It took me all week to figure out what to do. I just finished it about 5 mins ago, and still am not happy with it! This challenge was VERY hard for me. So, here is the end result!

Oh, and on a plus note I got 2 new cartridges today!! I got wild card, not sure if I am keeping it or not. And finally won Sesame Street font on ebay for $20!!! Yay me!!

Bunny treat bags

I made these bags, for my daughters MDO class. I used doodlecharms for the bunnies, I added a purple bow for the girls, and left the boys with out a bow! For tha back, I cut another bunny in blackout and trimmed the ears off, then added a cotton ball for the tail. I filled them with 2 mini plastic eggs each.
