Play Layout

I gotta say, I love these colors and papers!!!  The picture doesn't do it justice, I had a difficult time getting a decent picture.  I made this layout using the sketch from Frosted Designs, the challenges are for My Sheri Crafts Challenge and Sketches in Thyme Open Sketch Challenge.

My Sheri Crafts Challenge #45 requires the project to be Girly and Sketches in Thyme required you to just use a sketch.  I really liked this sketch, it was simple, but elegant.  I think I'm going to put some black and white pics of my daughter playing on the layout. 

The paper is all from the DCWV La Creme Stack, it's hard to tell from the picture, but the background page is flocked.  So rich looking!  Ooo, I forgot, the red paper is from DCWV The Shimmer Stack.  The butterflies are Recollections as well as the flowers and pearl accents.  I cut the "Play" title  and black background with the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, and both borders are EK success. 
Here is the sketch I used!!!

Dinosaur Happy Birthday Card!

I made this Dinosaur Happy Birthday card for the Challenge Me Monday #48 at Fantabulous Cricut. I embossed the card with my Cuttlebug circles folder and the circle with a stripes folder.  I cut the circle and stars with my cricut, the dinosaur is from K&Company, and I got the ric rac ribbon from Michaels.  I added a star brad within the star at the bottom and some star stickers along the top.  The background paper is from DCWV Boys Stack.

Help! The links have stumped me!

How do I add a link to my post and have it say the name and not the actual URL? I hit "link" that's in blue, copy and pasted the link, but it's not right! Any help would be Awesome!

Birthday Card for 2 Challenges!

This is the first time I've ever entered a challenge, so I decided why not 2? This card is for and

For the Fantabulous Friday Challenge you could not use patterned paper and the Wordy Challenge was to stamp a sentiment for the background paper. Quick and easy birthday card!

I used DCWV Summer Cardstock Stack for all my paper. I used an EK Success cupcake border punch and scalloped circle punch, the Cupcake embellishment is from Jolee's boutique-EK Success, the ink is Kaleidacolor, no clue where I got the stamp, and the jewels I ordered from QVC ages ago!

I punched the cupcake border in both black and lime green then offset it when I glued it, so it would look like a shadow. The card came out cute. Not bad for my first challenge. Hopefully I will attempt many more in the future!

Super Cute Hair Clips!

My daughter is such a girly girl!!! She loves to dress up, craft, and do anything girly, sparkly, pink, or purple! So, I thought I would make her some hair clips real fast. They turned out really cute and were unbelievably quick and easy!

I know there's a shadow, but I just could seem to get rid of it no matter what angle I tried. Sorry!
