Thankful Hearts

I've been AWOL for a bit because we went to California and DISNEYLAND! It was really fun, and I've got a cool autograph book/album in the works that I'll post when I get the pictures printed and put in. It was a blast, and I'm so glad I took the time to make the book before we went so now I can just slap the pictures in, journal, and be done!

In the meantime, here is my project for Regina Easter's "Bitten by the Bug" blog this week. She sent me some fantastic Cornish Heritage Farms stamps to use on this bag from the TTBM Cricut cartridge -- you've gotta check out all the amazing designs on her blog this week, plus there's a link to Cornish Heritage and a cool contest they're sponsoring. It's

I've been busy!

I've been working on several different projects at once over the past couple weeks (translated, that means: my office is a complete disaster area). But at least I've got some fun things to show for it!

This project was a new one for me -- a local store was having a charity auction of decorated paper lanterns, and I made this one to contribute. It started out black, but I just wasn't feeling it, so I decided to go with a Thanksgiving-type theme. I painted it green, painted on the flourishes, and added flowers (cut with my Cricut) and ribbon. I then made these thank you cards to go with it -- I thought they'd make a nice card for Thanksgiving.

These next few layouts are my most recent forays into digi-scrapping. They're for the books I make for my mom and MIL (I'm supposed to do a layout every month, but I keep getting behind!).

This one is my November layout for my weight-loss album. I love this 6x6 album -- I get to use all my fun digi-kits and they're quick to put together! This totally fab free kit is from Shabby Princess -- see link at left!

Next, here are a bunch of cards I made experimenting with my new Cricut Colors pens. They are pens that fit into the Cricut instead the blade, so you can draw the images instead of cutting them out:

And last but not least (thanks if you've hung in this long!), here are a couple of layouts I finally did! I've been working on cards and gifts so much I haven't had a chanch to do any layouts for quite a while.

This one is my cute boys playing together -- I LOVE this pic!


And here is me and my cute hubby, out on the town in Seattle! This one was for a BBTB challenge, to use the & from George. See the other really cool projects at
