Hello there, I hope you are all doing ok. I am doing good and so are my kids, finally.
This weeks challenge was encouraged by my 5 year old son. Everyday when I take my kids to preschool, I have to pass a few school zones and crosswalks. Well everyday I get so angry at the amount of parents who totally ignore the school zones and crosswalk laws. Even knowing that there have been so many crosswalk deaths here in the Vegas valley. So on a regular basis you will hear me honk my horn in hopes that they will realize they are speeding right by an elementary school. But as usual it never works. And sometimes you'll hear me scream "SERIOUSLY" or "ARE YOU KIDDING ME". well my son always asks me why I do that, so I explained to him why. A few days later he then says to me about an hour before school, can you make me a sign? I of course am curious, sure son, what kind of sign. So he goes where some of my Cricut Cartridges are stored and picks out Something to Celebrate. He brings it to me and points to the Crosswalk sign. I said sure I can make that for you. But Anthony why do you want a Crosswalk sign, he said " that way when you take me to school I can put it out the window near the school so it reminds people to slow down. It's pretty sad when a 5 year old can have that much common sense put grown adult parents don't.
So please parents and non-parents, remember to slow down and pay attention to the crosswalks. It may be your child.
The cart I used was the Something to Celebrate
I was able to cut all the layers on 1 mat with my Gypsy Yay!!

This weeks Challenge is the New Year for 2010. This particular picture has great meaning to me. I know it just looks like the moon with a tree in front of it. To me, it was my Father In Law. You see he was a very brave and strong man that I loved like my own father. He had lost his battle with pancreatic cancer December 15th, 2009. This was the first New Year not seeing him and it was hard for all of us. This picture was taken in front of his house on New Years. For some reason I could not keep my eyes off the moon this New Years morning. It really felt as if I was looking up at him. We miss him so much.
For this I only used StoryBook Cricut Cartridge for the Journal tag with a shadow.
I hope you like my challenge, Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Hello there and Happy Sunday to you all. I hope you are having a great week-end. I have had a ruff one, got hit with a migraine. But I survived, thanks to my wonderful friend and neighbor. She helped me with my kids during my headache.
Well this year I have to buckle down and catch up with my scrapbooks. I have decided to work on the same month for the 2010,2011 and 2012. But each year will have their own layouts for the books. I'm going to try this, hopefully it works.
This layout was at Disney on Ice. The kids were finally old enough to really enjoy and get excited about the show.
The cartridges I used on this are:
Mickey Font for the wording
Cars for the street cut out ( welded several tracks together to simulate an oval track)
This last pic is of the back of my layout. I'm sure most of you know of this little trick, but I'm posting it anyway for those who don't. What I did is, I matted the red on black, so I cut a square on the inside portion of the back card stock that won't be seen out. and I used the inside cutout portion for my mats on my photos. This was I save some of my card stock, and no-one will ever know hehehehe. Well you know that I did that because I am showing you a pic, but SHHHHHHHH don't tell NON-Crafters.
I hope you like my post and leave me some comments or suggestions. Thank you for stopping by.
Have a great day

Hello there my crafty friends. I hope you all had a wonderful New Years, we sure did. I know this is a little late, but we were off in the mountains have family fun for the new year.
Anyways this week I was planning on doing a layout for you but suddenly changed my mind. My daughter will be having a birthday on Feb. 29th (leap year). So I got motivated to get started on her invitations and decorations for her party. Since I don't really have a consistent craft time every day or even weeks sometimes. I figure it's best for me to get started now, so I can make sure they are done in time.
My daughters favorite color is pink so I decided to incorporate it in making her a Leap Year themed party. My good friend Teri from Heart2Home sent me an email with a sample invite, and I liked it very much. But I had to change it up a bit to fit my daughters birthday theme. I was suggested to do a leap frog, which I loved. That's why you will see this absolutely cute frog on the invite.
The carts that I used are:
Sugar & Spice Lite for the scallop circles
Paisley for the frog
Paper is from Cordination Lipstick and green apple. Bazzil paper is serinade (light lavendar)
Glam Pink Stickles,Xyron Glue runner
I hope you like this weeks challenge post.
See you soon
