love tree

Here another fun project I put together for We had to make something with a tree. I always make cards so I went with something different. I put together a 8x8 scrap page. It means a lot to me because it a photo of me and the man that I love. It has been a long time since I felt this way about anyone. We have been together for a year and I still feel like a little girl when I see him. We are long distance for now, he lives in Milwaukee and I live in Chicago, We are a hour and a half away from each other so it does take some planning. I wouldn't change a thing about it.
The tree is cut at 4 inches and is from the sweetheart cartridge and so are the little people.The grass is from PDDU and so is the moon which was cut at 2 inches. The sentiment is from scrappy moms stamp set the sweet something collection

My Creative Time "ST. PATRICK'S THEME"

This is a fun challenge and I really had to come up with something great. I didn't want to use a shamrock for it so a pot of gold had to do. I really wish I could find my pot of gold I could use it.
I added some gold stickles to give it a nice shimmer and the rainbow is create-a-critter and so are the clouds

Cricut Cardz Challenge 64

I really enjoy all the fun challenges at This time we had to make a bookmark for the challenge. This is what I came up with.

The apple is cut from create-a-critter, it reminded me of a school teacher. Right now I'm in school to get my degree in Early Childhood.

Wacky Wednesday "zoo theme"

I have a reason not to do a card but work on a actual scrap page. There is only one cut that is from my cricut eveything else is just me cutting the old fashion was.

The photos are from the past summer. I really love going to the zoo. Here is a second page

CTO "any occasion"

Here is another great challenge over at This week challenge was to use the colors green and white with an optional color. The first thing that I came up with was to do something for St. Patrick Day.
The shamrock was cut at 4inches and was from PDUU. The sentiment is from Pink by Design ( and the background paper is from K&Company.

Challenge #49 Shaped Card

Here is another fun challenge hosted at I had to make a card with a different shape and not the usual square. It was time for me to knock thedirt off of my wild card cartridge. I have a fun who will be having a baby soon so I made the this lovely card for her.

Q for Quotes and Sayings

It's time for another challenge at This time we had to use a quote and it was fum coming up with something fun. I did two cards for this challenge.

The shoes are cut from "forever young" and if you can't read the quote it says "give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world"  The second card is all stamped with a stamp set I got from Joann for $3.
