Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenge #12 - Anything Goes/Use Twine and Jelly Pens

I am very sad and sorry to say that this is the last Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenge. I have had so much fun on this Design Team and worked with so many talented people. I follow all of them and will continue to look at the wonderful things that everyone designs.

This weeks Challenge is: Create Anything you want (LO, Card, Project), you need to use Twine and your Sakura Jelly Roll Pens. I have to say I had a lot of fun with this Challenge. I have been trying to finish our 2010 book and start the 2011 book before the baby comes in 2012. I haven't been real motivated but I worked my butt off and Love my Layout I made for today!!!

Thanks A Latte Card

I just got to play with my new CE2 and I am so impressed. I still have a lot to learn but I really like it!! I thought I should make a card for my Grandma using it, since she bought it for me. I just got finished with this card and I think it's cute. It didn't come out exactly how I wanted it to but it's not bad.

Cricut Expression 2: Anniversary Edition

I am so excited to say there is a new Cricut in the house!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!! I just got today in the mail my CE2. I am so excited!! I have been wanting one since I saw it on HSN and didn't think it was a possibility. My grandma then surprised me and just got me one. I am soo happy!!! Now I just need to figure out how to use it. Here are some pictures that I took while I was opening it...

It comes with everything you see below. I am excited that it comes with covers for the ports so they don't get all dusty. It comes with a mat, Power cord, Computer Cord, Stylus, Blade and Housing, and 4 pre-loaded Cartridges. YAY!!!!!

Thank You Sooo Much Grandma!!!! I can't wait to start playing. Hoping I can get my gypsy working with it. I have some things saved I want to cut out. If you have any feedback on your please let me know. I am a little nervous! 

Thanks for stopping by!! I will make some things and post them soon!!

My Creative Time Throwback Thursday

Alright!!! I am so excited that I actually got my card finished. I have had it all layed out on my gypsy but haven't cut it out since I have been gone all weekend. 

The Challenge over at My Creative Time is to use a Retired Cartridge for your project. I liked this challenge. I surprisingly have a lot of the retired cartridges and it got me using some I don't use often enough. 

I decided to use Joys Of The Seasons for my card today. I thought it would be a good time to start on my holiday cards so that I am not behind this year. 

Card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (paper is from Paper Trey Ink)
Layer is 4 x 5 1/4 (paper is from Christmas Combo Stack from DCWV)
Strip is 4 x 2
Ornament and layers cut @ 4.30
Sheer Ribbon is from JoAnn's
Inked around everything with silver ink
Stamp is one from TPS Christmas

Thank you for coming by today and make sure you go visit Emma!! She has amazing new releases of her stamps coming out. I can't wait to see what she has done this time!!!
