Gift for Dad and Home Decor

Hi,  This project was done a couple years ago (Pre-Cricut)  I still love it and it hangs in my family room.  My kids and I made it for my hubby for Father's Day.  Makes a great gift for Birthday, Christmas or just because.  Hope you like it.


These are painted chipboard letters
The handprints were done on a white t-shirt
that I cut up

This is a poem that I found online
it was perfect for this.  Click on the picture to see it bigger

Where is that Image?

Good Morning!  Have you ever had a layout where you wanted a certain image and you just can't remember what cartridge its in?  If that's happened to you then this is the "goto" place.  I just found this really nifty site.  Its called Cricut Search.  Also posted it on my right side bar.  I will definitely be using this.

Have a great day and remember I'm having my first giveaway really soon.  For details please click HERE.

my bloghop water bottle

Isn't this cute!  I won this during a blog hop a few months back.  Wanted to show you how adorable it is.  Michelle from Scrappin' With My Bug customized it for me.  She also gave me some stickers, rub-ons and a beautiful card.
this wastaken at a stop light in my car!  I take it everywhere with me!  

Wedding page

Happy HUMP DAY!!!  one more til FRIDAY!!!  Wanted to post this really cute page I made.  It was as a favor for a friend who was making a beautiful wedding/memory book of her sister and her now husband.  So this page is actually not glued down.  I took a picture of it before and forgot to take the picture of it glued down.  This is pretty much what it looked like though.  I used the Sweethearts cartridge for the couple and Gypsy wanderings for title. It's tough to see but I also heat embossed the couple with clear embossing powder so they're kinda glittery.  If you zoom in you may be able to see it. I love to ink stuff so you'll see everything is inked with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink (Black Soot)  The scalloped circle is inked with Antique Linen.  Hope you like it!  Don't forget...I'm having a giveaway soon.  Click HERE for details.  Enjoy!!  Liz

I kneel down to you Cricut Imagine

Hello fellow bloggers.
Hope you're all having a wonderful Tuesday and have been watching HSN's ALL DAY Crafting Marathon.  I'm thrilled to announce that as a gift I'm getting the Cricut Imagine.  Now,  I really wasn't convinced with this machine or the price tag.  I was perfectly happy in my own little Expression world but as I sat on my couch and watched the World Premiere Launch of the Cricut Imagine I thought about how badly I really wanted it now.  However, I wasn't ready to make that kind of expense.  I get a phone call from my Dad telling me he's watching HSN.  Little did I know that he was going to get it for me.  THANK YOU DAD!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!  I'm a 35 year old, married woman with 2 kids and I feel like "Daddy's LIttle Girl"  Check out HSN (Home Shopping Network)  They have a great deal on it.
