Lets Do It Again! Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Bog Hop

I am so excited that it is finally here!

I love Disney and everything to do with Disney!

Man, I even have a Mickey Tattoo on my shoulder.

First I would like to thank Melissa and Shawn for putting this wonderful Blog Hop together.

If you arrived from Amy's you are on the right track.

If you are a regular follower of my blog please go HERE , so that

you can see the entire hop from the beginning.

For my project I decided to do a layout using the Disney Toy Story Cartridge

and a SVG File of Bullseye from Mardenz

I will be adding pictures of the Magical Kingdom parade from our holiday in Florida
that we took last January.

I love the way this layout turned out, so I took lots of pictures! LOL!
Just so you could see all the great cuts.
I left the tops of the picture frames open, so I could just slide a picture in later.

Isn't Bullseye Cute?

I'm not to sure about how Woody turned out, but I guess he will just have to do.

Oh and we can't forget Hamm!

Now it's time to send you off.

Your next stop along the way is the amazing talented Madison.

But before you leave!

I do have some Blog Candy!

For one Lucky Winner.
Please leave a comment and a way for me to get in touch with you.
( You must be a Follower of my blog for a chance to win the CANDY.)

Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge # 14 Indie Art!

This weeks Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge is to use the Indie Art Cartridge!

I made these T-Shirts for four of my grand kids and put them in there Easter Baskets.

This is a picture of my Grandson Josh, I used Indie Art to make both the skull

and the title Trouble.

This is a picture of the kids baskets, each had a T- Shirt and lots of Chocolate!

This T-Shirt I used my i-rock to do all the took like 4 hours to do it
so I decided to use vinyl for the other three shirts.

I had the kids over for Easter today since my daughter Christy is off to Vegas tomorrow.

This is a picture of my Sons kids wearing their T-Shirts proudly for Nanny!

Ruff day? A Bit Of Exciting News! and Blog Candy!

About two weeks ago, I got a email from Kimberly over at My Craft Spot asking if I would join her Design Team!

She said she had stumbled upon my blog and liked what she saw and was just wondering if I would be interested.

Heck! Yea!

I am very happy and look forward to working with Kimberly and the new Design Team.

Today is the day she will be introducing us and we were all asked to post a project, using her wonderful New Stamp Sets, she had sent us!

I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the flower border and then chalked the flowers and leafs.

All other supplies was just odds and ends from my never ending stash.

For my Birthday project, I decided to make a layout from a cruise

we took to celebrate my Hubbies Birthday in 2007.

This was just before I became very ill and had to quit smoking!

So I was four years younger!

and at least 30 pounds lighter!

The ship was made from a die cut and my Cuttlebug ,

I just cut it out a few times, so I could layer it.

I used paper tearing for the ocean, and chalked all the edges.

Doesn't it look real?

Makes me want to hop on a plane and find a beautiful beach some where!

Cartridges used in this layout were:

George and Basic Shapes

Pack Your Bags

Paper Doll Dress Ups

Life is a Beach

Happy Easter! Spring Layout!

I hear that train a coming! A coming round the bend!

Oh My!

Where did that come from?

Now I am going to be singing that silly song all day long!

This week I have been working on a two page Easter layout.

I was going to wait until both pages were done to post , but I think it turned out so cute!

I just couldn't wait to finish the second page to show you.

For the train I cut so many colour combination...

to get it just right,

I could do a whole scrapbook on trains alone.

Anyone need a train? LOL!

When making this layout ,

I had a few challenges in mind and then of course it takes me so long to finish,

a few more have come up in the mean time.

Cartridges used for the layout were:
