This year I attended the Crop and Create in Cornwall again.  I have to say it was a blast.  I was able to complete 9 scrapbook pages.  Catherine and here gang are so great, there was lots of great food and prizes.  Once again the stores were great, and so were the friendships formed.

Cricut Halloween Treat Boxes

Well its been a long time since I have posted.  I have been Scrapbooking a friends wedding pictures and have not wanted to post anything in case she sees the pictures.  I am almost done the album and will ge giving it to her shortly so I will post the pictures then.

This morning I started making my Halloween boxes for my family at home, my work family, my neighbours and my grandchildren.  I have 23 to make in total so I was planning on using four of my Cricuts all at once to make things go faster.  The box I selected was from Ana's Seasonal Soirees.
I love the box but I am very disappointed that the cartridge does not have the score lines on it.  To use the score lines you have to use Design Space.  My plan was to use my expression with the cartridge, my Imagine with my gypsy and my expression 2 with CCR.  In the end I had to cut all the boxes with my explore, it would have been so easy for them to put the score lines on the f1 feature key.

Grave Marker

Well this is a sad post.  My brother died in March of this year.  His wife hasn't been well and not able to cope with all that needs to be done.  We are finally able to bury my brothers ashes this Saturday.  It was important to another one of my brothers to have a marker for my brother.  I was stunned to hear that the marker we chose will not be installed until next spring.  With that being said I had to come up with something.  I went to Michael's and found two chalkboards, and a piece of Styrofoam.  I traced the chalkboard onto the styrofoam and cut it out with a knife.  I then covered all of the edges of the styrofoam with black vinyl.  Next I cut an angel and the words on my cricut and adhered them to the chalkboard.
I then took clear vinyl and wrapped the two chalkboards in the clear vinyl.  Then I made a sandwich of the chalkboard, the styrofoam and then the chalkboard again.  I tried 3 different adhesives, first Arleen's tacky glue, then a hot glue gun, neither of these worked, so I tried E6000, and that worked very well.  Finally I have cut a cheap garden fence into a H shape to secure the marker into the ground.  Sorry the picture is so dark I took it at night.

Birthday Cat

Here is a card I made this morning for a co-worker.  This girl loves cats.
I used paper from  Cartridges I used were Forever Young, Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes, and Paisley.  Inpiration for the card came from liveloveandscrap.
The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper.  The emamel dots are ones I made with my perler beads.

sugar sheets

Well my husband's birthday was on the 26th of July, we finally got around to having his birthday dinner.
I had bought a white cake (his favorite) I did not have them put any words on the cake.  I purchased a sugar sheet and cut it with my cricut cake machine.
