Halloween Projects

I will post my Halloween project here updating/editing as I go.
This is the first.  Still need to fill with crinkle paper and goodies.
When I have them all finished I will post a picture of the group.
Can toppers cut with my cricut expression. Oh how I love it.

Cuttle bug Challenge #49 50th Birthday

Here is my mini album for the Cuttle bug challenge.
My theme was 50th Birthday.
I wanted to follow the same look as the cards that I embossed aluminum cans.
So for my book I used aluminum foil in my cuttle bug with the matching embossing folder for Happy Birthday.  I think it gave it a very sharp look.  Everyone loves it and I hope you like it too.
I also used my BIA (I admit I am BIA challenged because can not for the life figure out the book of instructions to get my punches centered.  This time I got lucky, and it did line up.

Okay I will give you a peak inside but this only a few of the pages there are several more and still more to add--when I add my pictures I am sure I will add a few things.  I am using this challenge to motivate me to get my pictures scrapped from hubby's 50th party we held last year.  Pictures do not do it justice--it is very shiny and blingy.


Looking for followers. Please follow my blog.

Weekend Marathon Crafting

Great weekend!  Friday night girls night at my house.
Ordered BLT Pizza's for Dinner and just hung out working on our own projects.
Barb did some scrap pages.   Ni spent time playing with her cricut  (Create) trying to learn a little more
about her new toy.  I worked on my cuttlebug challenge entries.  We worked until 3:30 in the morning and then Saturday at 2:00 went to archivers to shop for 3 hours (me and Ni) then on to a couple more then dinner and came back and worked on Halloween cards and halloween cans.  We worked all night until Sunday morning at 10:am then went to see a movie and then to the cider mill with a stop at Michaels.
Very productive weekend and FUN.  Although I was dragging my behind come Monday.
I will post pictures of the quick cards I made for Halloween in a couple days. (and paint cans).

Centerpieces and my Cricut CUTTLEBUG CHALLENGE (Be Inspired #50 -50th Birthday Centerpiece)

Theme: 50th Birthday
I was not able to participate in all the Birthday Palooza yet but did want to enter for your centerpiece challenge.  I thought it might be too late to post to the other challenges (now work has slowed and I have time) But I emailed and was told by Maggie I still had time till October 3rd.  I have been up all night completing my projects-Will post them over the next few days.  Thank you Maggie and everyone at the Cuttle Bug Challenge.

I have been busy making centerpieces and taking care of putting other things together for both a 50th birthday party and a graduation party. Just thought I would post some pictures of centerpieces I made for my Husbands 50th Birthday (Surprise Party)

Also some from my daughters graduation party. Feel free to tell me what you think.
I used my cricut for these. I also used other items in the graduation ones.

Update on Blog

Well, here I am just waiting to go off to work again.   Reading all the blogs trying to stay informed so I do not miss anything "especially a chance to win a gypsy".  I have been playing with my cricut and some in the trial DS.  But last night I realized someone had borrowed my USB cord -so I could not connect my laptop to the cricut to cut the files I had designed.  If it does not find its way home today I will have to run out and buy another one.  Stay tuned to see what happens.  I have heard the disks that are included in the infomercial contain lots of projects from the infomercial and another disk of a project each month--I have been trying to locate them---if you know how to get them please comment or email me.  I have also been doing a little experimenting with video and hopefully will be able to get my tutorials posting soon.  I am also working on scanning my card/layout/project into photobucket to get the gallery going.  It all takes time.  Well off to work I will check in later.  I see Christina is a follower welcome Christina you are the first (I hope the first of many)  Thank you for your wonderful email.

I am torn between Italy, Paris or London.

ACDC (ALL of their songs-Back in Black, Shook me all night long,  Hells Bells etc.....)
3. If you had a night to yourself, and money was no object, what would you do? 
Well laying on a beach on an island is out because the word was "NIGHT"--so what I love to do when I have "alone" time is Scrapbook and sew.  And with money no object I would get anything and everything I wanted and have an awesome scrapbook and sewing room set up to do just that. I would have Dinner catered in no pizza this time. (Although I do love Pizza)  I would do my favorite things all night long. (I would be stocked with Provo craft products)
4. What is your guilty pleasure? It is a toss up Smores, Raisinets, and Peanut M&M's.  I love them but they are oh so bad for me SUGAR SUGAR SUGAR.  But I am more of a salty girl.  (I should include Cheezits) Always around when scrapbooking.

Back to School Challenge Be Inspired #46 Cosmo Cricket

Here are some sets I made.  The Black and White with silver accents I made for my son going back to college for his organizing his bills and important papers, statements etc.  Also a matching notepad to write down important phone conversations and to record his transactions.  I also made a matching pen to keep with it (that way you will always have a pen when you need one).

Here is a little set I made for a friend.  It has monthly inserts you can organize cards by month for important events like anniversary or birthday.  Or keep monthly coupons or receipts.

I made this box to help organize us somewhat.  I made a matching notebook and pen too.
