I had so much fun creating with this kit. I just wish I had more and more of it to keep playing! I was so surprised at all of the alphas!
Here's what I came up with, but make sure to check out these two blogs as well... Laura and Jean

Now, just a little disclaimer! Pictures don't usually do layouts and cards justice, but I had a hard time getting some good shots today. Not really sure why?!?!?!?!?

Ah, my wise, young owl... Elsie and her literacy award!

Tinkerbell came to our house! I was reading Elsie a bedtime story, and the sun glinted several times off my watch and reflected on the wall. She was certain it was Tinkerbell! And, well, it must have been because in the morning we found Tinkerbell's "sleeping nest" complete with glitter from her fairy wings!
Just wanted to note that this paper is GORGEOUS! You can't tell from the photo, but it has glitter all throughout the swirls of flowers. I couldn't bring myself to cover up any of that "fairy dust!"

My favourite family photo - hands down. Sad that it is 5 years old, hey? Maybe one day we'll get another good one!

I just wanted more and more of these materials so that I could keep creating. I ended up making three cards as well...

Teacher's gift

So, my daughter is attending her last day of Senior Kindergarten as we speak. YIKES. Mommy's not ready for this...

So, that being said... She has had the same teacher for Junior and Senior Kindergarten, as did my son. I wanted to do something a little more special as a year-end gift for her. Here is a picture of what I came up with... an altered clock for her classroom...


Just waiting on some details from G. WIll post the candy to go out once I get more info!

Ok people...

Over 30 more visits since my last post. NO ONE WANTS BLOG CANDY? Do I have to go and grab something and post a pic of it in order for someone to nab it?

C'mon! First person to email me with BLOG CANDY in the subject line!

(If you have tried to email, it's obviously not working. Please leave me a comment!)

So, I was watching my visitor counter and thinking I should do something when it hit 3000. Well, evidently I missed that and am now at 3018! So, first person to send me an email using the "drop me a line" feature, with the answer to the following question, gets some blog candy!

What was the name of the April Kit from Scrappin' Great Deals?!?!?!?!?

Two new classes coming up....

On June 27th, I will be teaching a "Cricut 101" class. This class will be geared for those wondering if they should buy a Cricut, plus those that own a Cricut but are not using it to its full potential!

June 27th 10am - 12pm. $15.

On July 11th, I will be teaching this beautiful class using Bo-Bunny Unforgettable papers! And, the 2 two-page layouts that you will take home will be Unforgettable! This paper line is delicious! Add some bling... Mmmmmmm.

July 11th 10am - 1pm. $25.


Ever since we moved in to our home 3.5 years ago, I have hinted (ok, more than hinted) that I would LOVE to close off our livingroom from the kitchen/diningroom. It was a space we hardly used because we also have a familyroom off of the kitchen. Well....

Shawn has begun the work! Currently I have a small "nook" in the basement that I work at, but he now needs a space for a home office. So, he's taking that and I'm getting the livingroom! I can not wait!

Here's some pics. The work just started this weekend...
