Presley's Valentine Box 2010

I know this is a late post but I could not resist. This is the Valentine candy treat bags and her card box that she just had to have. It was craft lifted from Oriental Trade I believe.

I thought it turned out very cute and she was so excited when she took it to school.

My first card with MTC and my Cricut Expression

My son Cole needed a card for a very good friend. His friend loves paintball and I did not have any gun pictures. Cole found me one and I brought the picture into MTC and cleaned it up. I also used the Indie Art cartridge. Hope you like it I had fun making it! My son was very happy with the card and he said it was showed-off at school-I guess that means its a hit. :):)

The gray's (lt and dk) cs was from the 59 cent bins @ Hobby Lobby (the dk G was textured).
The Bright lime green cs was from Best Occasions textured pack from Wal-Mart (I think it was under 10.00 for 50 12x12 sheets).
I used just regular black cs (no texture) from Wal-Mart, for the shadow effect.
Then I sponged the edges with StazOn-Jet Black Ink.
Last I used pop-ups to adhere the skull on the splat.

March 12, 2010

Well, I am finally getting this blog together. Can you tell my daughter is a Jonas Fan!! I am too, I think these kids have it together. Nick has Juvenile Diabetes and my son Cole also. I am glad Nick and his family came out about his JD. He is a very strong and positive Role Model for kids to look up to and see what all he can do and not let his JD get him down. I want my Cole to understand you can do anything you want, you just have to plan ahead in order to do it! (cole is not a planner) Cole is also getting into his role as an advocate for JD and has done a few engagements on behalf of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). I am so proud of him for speaking up and making a difference.

I gotta run for now will get some craft projects, cards, and l/o up by Saturday night.

We have a hockey game to go watch tonight! Our first one and I am excited.

Thank you
