Tomorrow is the big game to decide 1st and 2nd Place

Let the fundraising begin for the Superbowl at WDW ESPN Center. Great job Redondo Beach Mitey Mite Seahawks.

All this was cut with the Cricut. This time of year I use lots of Sports Mania & Varsity Letter. Because we are representing Wescon in the Superbowl at WDW in Florida, I added Mickey Mouse and 50 States.

Home Decor- the 3D Haunted House meets Chic and Scary

Ihave been wanting to make the Haunted House for over a year. When I got Chic and Scary this year, I challenged myself to shrink the litter banner and make the pennants only 1 inch. Perfect to decorate the Haunted House. The house pieces were cut at 7 inches. I want to make another one because it was strange to line the windows with yellow as instructed only to cover them up with a cornice. Anyway, it looks really cute on a little piece of artificial turf.I cut the shadows of trick or treaters from A Childs' Year.

Weekly Challenge - Treat

I fell in love with the colored oreo cookie socks in a paper witch shoe and knew I had to recreate it. I added the pumpkins I make out of orange jelly candies every year. My large flower ties it all together. Flower on shoe and the large flower cut from Flower Shoppe, the Witch Shoe is from Princess Party and the spider on the shoe is from Chic and Scary.

Our Grandson being ferocious in the Yoshi costume I made him

He is in love with the color purple and wanted the whole costume purple. We compromised and he has purple claws. So cute.

Monotone Challenge

For this challenge, my last one for the Blogiversary and then I cpompleted them all. I chose my papers and cartridge blindly!! I had procrastinated and couldn't narrow it down. I put 3 tones of pinks, blues, browns and greens in 4 piles and then picked the stack. I also pulled a column of cartridges off the shelf and chose one. I still wanted a fall or Halloween theme. So what do I pick??? Nursery Rhymes and pink papers. Great. AHa...Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater. Perfect! Enjoy

Imagine Layered Project Challenge

I don't have an Imagine but I really wanted to try to enter all the challenges. Special thank you to my friend Lisa, Cricut5 sho kindly dropped off some Imagine printed papers she had done. The colors coordinated beautifully with my dyed seam binding and my favorite polka dot ribbon.

Focus on Cuttlebug Challenge

For this challenge we needed to focus on the Cuttlebug Embossing technique. I cut the actual Cuttlebug from Cricut Everyday and then samples from several embossing folders. When I ran the glitter paper through the Cuttlebug, it gave a very interesting texture for the background of the card. The little Cuttlebug machine is cut from Storefront.

Circle Cartridge Challenge

I cannot find TC Chic and Scary but I did use French Manor for the chandelier, bird and butterflies. The bats were from Happy Hauntings as well as the title SPOOKY.

2011 HSN ProvoCraft Banner contest entry

I used PaperDoll Dress Up for the dolls and the banner itself is made from Witch Hats upside down.

The pumpkins and the drippy vampire font are from Happy Hauntings.

National Card Making Day

I chose a muted color scheme and used the cuts from French Manor to create this Thank You Card.

Blogiversary Recipe Challenge

For this challenge we were given parameters to use 3 buttons, a title, 2 Cricut Cuts. I chose the month of October that is orange, black and PINK. I will add pictures from Walk for the Cure. The cuts are from Creative Calendar and Happy Hauntings. I wanted it for the Title October and was pleasantly surprised to find a ribbon on there.

Happy Smurfday Makayla

We are going to a Smurfette party today for Makaylas' 8th Birthday. I used Paperdoll DressUp to make my version of Smurfette. A blue paperdoll, white dress, heels and elf cap does the trick.
