I made this card this weekend using my all time favorite Cricut Cartridge Create a Critter. I handle advertising at my job and we are working on making a new brochure and some new ads so I had to pick a number of residents to be models in the various pictures we were taking. So I thought since they were all so accommodating and good sports about getting their pictures taken I would make them all thank you cards. So this is what I came up with. On the inside it says "Many Thanks". I had to make 18, which wasn't too bad once I came up with the idea, after that it was like an assembly line.

I have two swaps due this weekend and I finally got them completed yesterday. It felt good to get something done FINALLY! The first item is a "Quote Card" It is 3x5 inches and it was to be an inspirational quote. I love love love the quote I used from Winne the Pooh. "If you live to be 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you." I used DCWV Green Stack and Bazzill paper. I used clack CTMH stamp pad. Just random buttons and I have no idea where I got the Pooh and Piglet stamp.
This second item was a recipe page. It is 6x6 inches and we were to do a Strawberry Recipe. I spent tons of time going over recipes on allrecipes.com and finally settle on this one. I wanted something different and this was it, plus it had over a THOUSAND 5 star reviews so it must taste good too! It is for Strawberry Pretzel Salad which is a little deceiving because it is NOT a salad but definitely a layered dessert. I used Bazzill cardstock, generic cardstock from Joann's and my Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge for this layout. The stamp in the bottom left is from My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Punnies set and I just used my CTMH black stamp pad. You can't really tell in the picture but the kitty and strawberry are popped up using Stampin Up dimensionals.

|This two page spread is a take on a layout I saw on Monique Griffith Designs. My favorite layout of the weekend! I used Mickey and Friends for the characters and Quarter Note for the saying and the music notes.|
|I love Pluto! I am was very happy with the paper choices for this layout. I should have written down the name of the paper, I think it is Basic Grey but not 100% sure.|
|This layout has my favorite picture on it. The bottom right picture with all of the girls piled up and they all look so joyous! This paper is Creative Memories.|
|I like how this page came out, but the picture is from the previous years trip! oops!|

I just got back from an awesome scrap weekend away with friends at The Hamburg Hidewaway. Got lots done and had a great time on top of that. I got 21 pages done and two cards. I really was aiming at getting more done, but I am happy with what I ended up with. I finished my pictures from the 2008-2009 band season. I will scan a few of my favorite layouts tomorrow and get them posted. I am hoping that three uninterrupted days of scrapbooking with get me motivated and keep me scrapping. It was great to actually be productive with my scrapbooking again, it seems like it has been a long time since I got anything completed! Check back soon to see some of my layouts that I got done this weekend!

I sure wish someone would tell Mother Nature it is supposed to be spring! Bring on the warm weather!! I have been very busy with non-crafty stuff since Christmas time.
My baby turned 16!
Recipe Swap - Chicken Tortilla Soup
Again kept it simple since I didn't have a large space to work with. Card is 6x6. Printed out the recipe double matted it. Added to Mexican themed cuts from my Cricut. Sombrero came from Designer's Calendar and the cactus was from Toy Story. Added a flower brad to cactus for some visual interest.
Part of the fun this Saturday at our "Swap Crop" we are swapping Easter Baskets filled with scrapbook goodies! I will take a picture and add it soon. Here is a card that I made for each of my swap buddies. The pink layer was embossed using a Cuttlebug folder with larger circles, they are hard to see in this scan of the card. I cut the Bunny and Carrot from Create Critter (still my favorite cartridge ever!) and then I added a cute springy ribbon across the top. The pink paper looks a little lopsided on the scan but doesn't look like that in person.
