Life's A Beach

Just wanted to share with you a "summery" project. This weeks challenge on Fantabulous Cricut was to make something "beachy." I must share that my heart is breaking over the devastation occuring on the beaches of my state and the rest of the Gulf. Please pray for this situation.
Anyway... I have a friend who owns a private school called Lighthouse Learning Center. This was made to hang on the door to her office. I used Storybook, which has to be one of my favorite fonts and Life's A Beach, which has to be one of my favorite shape carts. Have a great weekend and keep cool!!

Well, I am about to post pics of my first mini album for the Cricut Mini Album Design Team, and when I typed in the title, it brought tears to my eyes. Today I spent most of the day with my dad. He took me to the Brain Injury Clinic in Birmingham, Al. We then went to Olive Garden and he patiently waited on me while I shopped in JoAnn's. He has taken many days off of work to care for me in the last three years, so yes dad, you are my hero and I Love you very much!!

Imagine That

I just love to alter things. I think I have a fascination with Modge Podge. Speaking of Modge Podge, I am using the gloss kind, and speaking from a person who has had 11 (yes 11)sinus surgeries I must say it smells MUCH better that the regular. So back to altering. This is one of those $3.oo photo albums form the Dollar Store. I made this for a friend with the title Imagine That in the title. I used Songbird Cricut cartridge. Love, Love that cart. It also has an AWESOME font on it.

This is what I made my dad for Father's day this year. Did you that you have the ability to remove lines you do not want to be cut. Right click on the line you want to hide and then drag mouse down to hide contout. Now, I have a brain injury and incorrectly idetified colors today (along with a LOT of other stuff) swo don't hold me to that.
Anyway, this is the feature I used to get ride of the middle of the letters since there is no blackout option on fonts. Enjoy!

Nativity Box

Ok, sorry for my absence. I have been in the hospital with some sinus and asthma issues and hope to be getting them worked out. In the mean time here is a nativity box I created using a stamp from Hobby Lobby.

Your A Star!!

IN honor of Memorial Day, I wanted to post this Star Box that I made. The top of the box was created using embossing a star stamp. I like the way the embossing powder added shimmer to this shining box.
