I've been working on making a banner for my daughter's 3rd birthday party and at first she wanted a Curious George party, so I started this. Now she wants a Dora party, so I'm going to work on that banner next, but I still love this one and will hang it! I created and drew my own coconuts and drew my own face on the monkey from Create A Critter to try and make him look more like George. The leaves are from CAC also, I believe and the letters are from Carousel.

This week my project was two-fold! It's teacher appreciation week and I love my sons' teachers. I am so grateful for them. I decided to try my hand at making one of the goody cakes and put some candies, notes, etc in each piece. I had a lot of fun doing it and it was pretty easy, though it did take a while! I also used my something old and something new cartridge by using Tags, Bags, Boxes, and more, one of the first carts, PC released, and Letter Envy, the last one I got! I used Paper Trimmings for the center of the cake and my stickles to glitter it up! Enjoy!

This challenge was to create a project using the sketch provided:
Here's what I came up with. It's another part of the PTA book I'm doing for my son's school. I'll be honest, I will probably add a couple things to it, but it's not too shabby for just over an hours worth of work. This got me moving again! Of course, my craft area is a disaster now!
In honor of National Scrapbooking Day, there are lots of fun projects going on. One of them is the recipe challenge. In this one, we need to:
Use at least three Cricut Image Cuts
Three patterned papers
A butterfly, Bird, or Bug
Machine, Pen, or Hand-Stitching
The color yellow
I had fun making a card in honor of teacher appreciation week for my daughter's music teacher that we love so much. I used 3 Birds and was able to use some new cute from my Imagine carts!

So excited I finally get to post some of the projects I made during the Shawnee Crop. We had the privilege of playing with the new carts and I really enjoyed doing that! I am going to have to buy these now!
For this first one, I used the Cricut inks for the first time and loved them! I used the new banner cartridge to cut the banner. For my stamps, I used Pink By Design. Another wonderful woman I had the privilege of meeting there! Thanks Sarah!
These were made out of Wild Card 2. A SUPER cute cart that is simple with detailed and fun designs. I love the cards that it can make!
