I will be working with another great Designer, Raechelle Bellus on the kits. It will be a wonderfully fun time and a fabulous journey through scrapbooking!
Thanks for letting me share my exciting news with you!
Have a great day!

She finally settled on adding some glitzy Dora stickers and also some did decide that she needed to journal.
Here is a close up of her work. Note her "remarks" about herself. LOL!
So there you have it. The final version of Elizabeth's first scrapbook creation. No face on her, but still cute none the less.

I first gave her the much coveted Dora paper that she has been wanting for eons. What a good Mommy to have this on hand for her! (he he!)
We then used the infamous glue stick to glue everything down with. She methodically placed her cut-outs just so.
Add in a pic of herself and there you have it! Elizabeth's first LO at age 3! Not bad if I do say so myself. She did everything and would not let Mommy touch anything but the glue. I wouldn't have it any other way! :)
It was great fun to "Play Mommy" this way with her. We'll have to see if she likes this enough to continue. I certainly hope so!!
Hope you are having as great a day as we are!

I am not in love with the Cricut.
*ducks, hides, and covers face*
I had an Expressions and about 12 carts at my LSS, but hardly ever used the thing. It never moved me like I know it has for others. Sure, I made some signage for the store and what not, but to use it in my scrapping, not so much. I did a title here and there and an image or shape once in a while, but that's it.
When I closed my LSS in Feb. I held onto the machine thinking I would use it, take the time to get to know it, find some love for it. I haven't. It sits there, lonely, in it's box whimpering at me and begging for a new home.
I found it a new home! My dear friend, Anne, has been wanting an E (she has a baby bug) for a bit now. She was instrumental in helping me clear out my LSS in the week we closed it out. We've made a deal with each other. She's going to give this sad, sad machine a new home and in turn help me get a bit organized in my basement scrappy area. I so need the help!
So there you have it...
I'm not a Cricuteer or whatever you call yourself who is a Cricut addict.
I finally confessed and feel better for it! :)
Have a great weekend!

I have simplified the red scalloped part by only punching one side of the paper, but other than that, this is about what they will be! Each is individually hand-painted with the Shimmerz. Did I mention that I'm making over 40 of them for her?? I think I'm a bit crazy.., but what else do I have to do while I'm laid up with a bum ankle and leg?
Hope that today is a joyful one for you!

I love how this card turned out and I hope that the others in the group enjoy it as much as I do. I can see it being used a few different ways. Can you?
So this is some of my fun that I do each month. For October we are going to create Get Well or Sympathy cards. I already have a few ideas for that! Will show you next month...
Enjoy your day and remember to capture those moments that are special!

I am over the moon and bouncing with joy over this! I can not wait to create for this great site and store in PA! They are a mere 3 hours away from where I live in CT... I foresee roadtrips in my future!!! :)
I'm going to be sure to post some more fun stuff about this awesome adventure in my life when I get back to my house. Right now I am up at my Mom's helping her out for the weekend. I had to of course hijack her computer. Hehe!
All my best!
Have a great weekend!
