BBTB Challenge/Butterfly Hollow

Regina asked we designers to use the home cut from the Christmas Cheer cartridge and here is my creation. I saw a deep dark forest where all the butterflies live. Where the night sky is colored with purples and blues and twinkly stars. Be sure to visit the BBTB site because the designers created the most wonderful projects with this cut.
Cricut: Christmas Cheer (home, trees
Martha Stewart Punch: Butterfly
Butterfly Feelers: Scroll punch
Mini Punch for the tiny butterflies...
Paper: DCWV/Once Upon A Time

Holy Cow....

This week is All Sewing Week and I decided I was going to embroidery a new tee shirt for me. I love this little cow, and I added a few words. I can't wait to wear it.

Ole' Snaggle Tree

We are having a bit of a card challenge on the Hallmark Scrapbook Message board to use the Snaggle Tree...and this is my take:
Cricut: PaperDolls Dress Up (Tree, bats) I cut the trees in 4 sizes to get the background depth. The main tree has pop dots to bring it up with dimension.
Sizzix: Moon (there is a darling moon on the PPDU cart right there with the tree, but I didn't notice it in time.)
Paper: Scrapbin grabs....Basic Grey.
Stickles and Rain dots.

Last Saturday we had Open Scrapbook Workshop at Red Rubber Stamps and as always we had a great time. Here is a photo of the group, and here is one of the pages from my Vacation in California album. The album has 26 pages covering 2002, 2003 and 2006, and this particular page announces the 2006 trip. Once we arrived in Marina del Rey it was an unpleasant surprise to find the hotel had given the room to someone else. I had reserved the room in January for a July arrival, and we were told that the room with only one queen size bed was all they had available and we could request a rollaway. They brought a crib and put it in the room. It was quickly changed to a rollaway, of course, once our reaction hit the lobby!!!!

BBTB Basket Challenge

Here is my take on Regina's challenge to use the Basket die on the Doodlecharms Cricut Cart. I was stumped, so I opted for a song and made 3 baskets full of hearts. The second card, Party Time, is the wrap up card from a whole week of making only cards. The sentiment and hats are from Cuttin' Up Cricut cart, I added buttons, ribbons, laquer, and there is some Cuttlebug Embossing (Swiss Dots)
Now....onto a full week of just scrapbooking.

Pumpkin's Halloween

I don't like the pumpkin cuts on the Doodlecharms Cricut Cart, so when I cut these, I tossed them into the scrapbin. I am on a quest to use the piles of papers and dies in my scrapbin so I pulled these out and now we have the two literally pleading for their very lives.
