Easter Layout 2012

Good Morning everyone,

I have a quick Easter layout to share with you today. Another group that I belong to challenged me to use only pastel colors, a bunny, and an egg image to create a layout. I have to be honest, the creative juices haven't been flowing lately. On top of that, my stomach has decided after being quiet for a couple of months that it needs some attention. So anyway, here's my half-sleep, no motivation layout. My apologies for the bad lighting.

I didn't really have a lot of pastel colored paper. So I found the lightest shades of purple, pink, and yellow that I had. Ok, so black isn't really a pastel, but it's a neutral so I threw it in there. ;-)

I used A Child's Year for all the cuts. The massive egg (that I'm using as a photo mat) was cut on Fit to Length at 10 inches. The title was cut at 2 inches and the little girl feeding the rabbit was cut at 4 inches.  My title isn't adhered down due to not being able to find my Zig 2-Way glue pen. Have I mentioned that my Scrap Cave is a disaster? I need to do some serious spring cleaning down there!

Spring is in the air

Hello everyone,

Now that I have gotten those wedding invitations out of the way, I can really get back to focusing on some other crafts. I added a new taste of spring to my Etsy shop, take a look...

The basketball invitations have been a huge hit in my shop, so I thought I'd try some baseball invites too. I cut these from "Life's A Party" at 4 inches. This card is a bit different as the bottom layer needs to be red and the top layer is in 3 parts. When I get a moment, I'm going to add the cupcake toppers and wrappers to the shop too.

I'll be back with some scrapbooking layouts soon. I PROMISE!!

Baby Shower fun

One of my friends had a baby shower yesterday and we painted some onesies for their new bundle of joy. I used my Cricut for one of the shirts.

Here is how they turned out:

Here are some of the ones others did

Feeling Removed from Life

Hello to all of my blog friends. I'm sorry that I have been so out of touch lately. I haven't been blogging, tweeting, or anything really. I've been so caught up in work (you that place that helps me fund my scrappy hobby), wedding invitations (again), and my Etsy store that I just haven't really had a chance to be me. I haven't even been reading blogs.

I have a lot of ideas of things I want to get done and hopefully I can get back into blogging regularly. The place that I had been going to crops at said they were closing and have kept extending their "final" date. So, I gave up on them. I really enjoyed going there, but I feel as though they are taking advantage of the people that come there regularly. So now I'm on the hunt to find new places to crop. Last weekend I went to a fellow Scrap That buddies house. I didn't end up getting much done, because I was helping a couple of ladies learn how to use the Cricut better.

Speaking of the Cricut, does anyone else feel like all of the new cartridges being released aren't up to the standards they used to provide? There's a lot of recycles images, in my opinion.

Anyway, I hope to be back soon with more regular posts and some awe-worthy projects.

Until then, stay crafty
