Happy Birthday!

I recently hosted a Cricut 12x12 scrapbook layout swap on SplitCoastStampers. This is one of the layouts I got back. This was made my Butterflygirl 2878. I love the bright colors and funky design of this layout. I knew these pictures for my daughter's 13th birthday were perfect!

Critter Sketch Challenge for 2/22

There is nothing we like more than SURPRISING our challenge participants. We will normally only have 1 give a way a month. It will be given at the end of the month. We were not going to give our first one until the end of March. However we thought it would be fun to SURPRISE you and give one away at the end of this week. Stamp and Create has teamed with us to sponsor our blog. Stamp and Create offers amazing products and their customer service is out of this world. They will be offering one lucky winner at $15 gift certificate to their awesome, amazing store.

On to this weeks challenge.....

Here is my layout for the 2/22 Critter Challenge. This week was a sketch challenge and you could either make a card or a scrapbook page. I decided to make a scrapbook page for my SCS friend Smartbug (Moira).  The only requirements, besides using the sketch, was to use either 2 brads or two eyelets in the design.

The sketch:

I decided to make a double page, 12x12 scrapbook layout.

Here is the left side of the layout and this was my challenge page!

Here is the right side of my LO.

Here are the two pages together.

Roller Coaster

Here is another scrapbook layout. I made this using my Cricut and Make the Cut software and a Gypsy. I made the title using Make the Cut software. I can't take credit for the roller coaster, though! I downloaded  the Gypsy file from

Ariel's Grotto

Several Months ago I hosted a Disney LOTW swap on SplitCoastStampers. LOTW stand for "letter of the word." Each person in the swap picks a letter to make and makes the same amount for each letter in that word. So if you have the "d" in Disney, you would make 6 of the letter "d." Each person in the swap does the same. What you get back is a variety of letters to use on a scrapbook page.

This is one set of letters that I got back for Ariel's Grotto:

Here is the page that I made with the letters:

I made this layout for my Cricut swap that I am hosting on SCS. I had already planned to do something with snowflakes so it was perfect to work on with all of this snow! This was from our last big snow in December. It looks like I will have more snow pictures to scrap! I only used the Winter Woodland cartridge for the snowflakes and the title. The snowflake on the right in the middle opens up for journaling

Okay, this is not craft related! We don't usually get very much snow when it snows. Maybe about 4-6 inches at the most. Well, it started snowing yesterday morning at 9:00am and it is still snowing! Expected snow totals are supposed to be any where from 20-30" by the time it is finished tonight.

Here are some pictures after shoveling my driveway today.

Before I started to shovel (and yes I shoveled last night too).

Normally there is a walk way to my front door from the driveway. Last night there was a pathway, today I didn't even attempt to clear it out!

Just Playing Around

I bought a new Cricut Cartridge last month, Joys of the Season, and I have been playing around with it lately. I made these two poinsettia's from Joys of the Season. I folded the second set of poinsettia leaves and chalked the creases. I really like how they came out and they were really easy to make!
