Make a scene!!! And FIRST BLOG GIVEAWAY!!

I making a new kit for me and 9 other ladies. I didn't know what to do at first and then it hit me. I wanted to make a "foresty-like" kit so for the first element I have a tag.

I cut the tree at 2 1/2" from the cart Give a Hoot
The grass is also from the same cart cut at 3/4"
The flowers were from a Martha Stewart punch
The bunny brad was from a recollectons pack I bought a long time ago
The base of the tag is cut at 3 3/4" x 2 1/2"
The blue cs is cut at 3 1/2"
The sun is a 1" punch
All the cs used comes form DCWV, Recollections, and Colorbook

The recipe  for the photomat is:

The blue cs is cut at 3 1/2" x 5 1/2"
The pink mat is 4" x 6"
The grass is cut at 1" using Paper doll dress up cart
The tree is cut at 3" using the Cindy loo cart
I used a silver pen to outline the tree
The flowers were also punched using the Martha Stewart punch

Thank you all for coming to visit me :) and last but not least here is my first blog candy. I'm giving away a green Gypsy sleve. Please leave a comment on here letting me know how to contact you and you must be a follower. Thanks for the support and good luck :)

My Pink Stamper's 2011 Blog Hop challenge

We were asked to hop every blog and get the keywords to complete a sentence.  That was then our challenge. So her is my 2 page 8x8 LO using the Indie Art cartridge. This was one of my first ones that my hubby bought me about 8 months ago or so. I hope you guys come check out the blog hop party going on :) over at My Pink Stamper's First Blog Hop!

Off & Away "Grand opening" challenge

We were challenged to make something with a dream we have. Well mine was to actually finish a mini book. Yay for me I made one out of 4 - 4" coasters and 2 - 1" rings. I also used some of my halloween paper from my stash and some embelishments and die cuts that I had in some of my kits. Hope everyone likes it. Every one still has time to check out Sweet Magnolia Rose's cricut expressions with 3 cartridge give away. Don't miss out.

Flaunt It Friday Challenge #6- Hello Kitty Cut

This is my second entry for the Flaunt it Fridays challenges. We were challenged to make a project with the Hello kitty on a plane die cut. Unfortunately for me I don't own that cart :( It's ok, I made my own. I used the space ship from Paper Doll Dresup and a cat from the Meow Lite cart. I made this a birthday card for anyone. It's a different project from last week but i think it turned out rather cute :) If you would like to join the fun and challange yourself, please visit their blog here. They are also having give aways and thereis a fun blog hop to join.

Hello Monday!!!

I was surprised that today I got to name 7 kittens and 3 adult cats. The adult cats names are Mirage, Alice, and Karinka. The kittens are Kenshin, Totoro, Ramen, Risa, Sakura, Yuki, and Cinder. Just some background on where I work for those of you that don't know, I work at the Humane Society as an exam tech. I was an exciting day for me today :)

Happy but sad Friday!!!

So..... I didn't get picked for my pink stamper's design team :( It's ok because I received a little prize in the mail that I won on Tuesday from Donna Salazar. Yay me!! I won Zutter brand corrugated 7x7 board. Created by Donna herself. Thanks sooo much Donna. Don't worry Linette (click here to visit her blog) I  will be sharing some of the goodies with you hehe. She also signed it yay!! I had asked her for a signed napkin before and she laughed at me :) What I'm working on today is another challenge from Flaunt It Fridays! I have to make a hello kitty on a plane project. I will be needing the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge which I DO NOT own :( It's ok though because I might be creating my own SCAL file. If I do i might give it away to 1 lucky reader. LOL so you would have a high chance since I don't have many followers. In any case here is the pic of what came in the mail today. Have a good Friday!!!

  8. cupcake delish stamp
  9. 1 green jewel for the olive
I cut the bag at 4" real dial size. The martini was cut at 3 1/2". The lime green "liquid" was cut free hand to make it look like tipping liquid (this was also dry embossed to give it texture). The patten paper was cut at 1"x 3" . And last but not least the stick was cut at 1/16th" (yes tiny)

One lucky Lady...
