Birthday Celebrations!

This weeks challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is all about Birthdays! Well it just so happens my nephews little girl Paige is turning one next month so I thought I would get cracking and get her birthday card made and join in the fun at a couple of my favorite challenge blogs.

For the Birthday Celebrations challenge at Fantabulous Cricut you must include a candle, so I used this wonderful birthday paper by Imaginisce and then dug out my Seasame Street Font Cricut cartridge. I decided on the #1 Elmo since this is her first Birthday and Paige just loves Elmo! This was cut it at 3 inches and it was such a breeze to put together.

The inside of the card has a simple Birthday sentiment by Stampin Up. I then decided to cut a tag of Elmo waving from the same cartridge and cut it at 2.5 inches to fill up the empty space.
(I will try and upload the video later tonight...I am having trouble with blogger right now.)

I am also going to enter this card in this weeks challenge over at Action Wobbles. This weeks challenge - anything goes but must include Polka Dots! If you look closely at the candles on the background paper some  have polka dots and my action wobble is under Elmo himself on the front of the card. How fun is that. I can just see her pretty big eyes when she see it go wobble wobble!
As always thanks for stopping bye and leaving your comments, have a fun and safe weekend.

Nasty! Nasty!

Wow! I can't believe it is September 22 and we are all still wearing shorts and tank tops here in Alberta. It hit 26 degrees here today and it has been that way for over a week. How I wish this could last all year.

 With this being said I decided to do a layouts of two of my grand daughters treating me to a pedicure. Whenever they come over they always rub lotion into my legs because I have such dry skin and Katie says she is going to be a Massage Therapist when she grows up and well, Jasmine just like to be included, but this time they asked if they could do a pedicure. Well by the time they were finished I had both my feet and nails done. LOL!
I followed this weeks sketch challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy. and  followed the theme from Fantabulous Cricut Challenge- End of Summer
 I used 5 different cartridges for the layout.
Elegant Edges for the floral looking matt.
George and Basic Shapes for the Blurb
Forever Young for both the Nail Polish and the Title
Life's a Beach for the Flip Flops
 The embossing folder is Animal Print by Sizzix and the paper is by DCW Baby Girl Stack.
I hope you enjoyed today's layout as much as I enjoyed making it. Have a great weekend and as always, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.

I'm Back!

Seems like forever since I last posted. We finally finished up with the Reno of my scrapbooking room and I must say it looks so nice. Thank you Russell you did a great job painting the walls! They are such a nice colours, and yes son once again you were right! A perfect match for the new carpet!
After the carpet went in, I put my hubby and grandson to work moving all the furniture back in and setting up the computer and my machines. Then it was my turn to go through every little thing I owned and clean, dust, thrown away and organize! Needless to say we were all exhausted so hubby and I decided to take off to Vegas for 6 days.

I really have missed blogging and joining in on all the challenges. So my first challenge was to see that blogger changed everything on me and it is like learning everything all over again! My second challenge was to make a mess in my new pretty room, but it had to be done since I have a whole bunch of things coming up next month that I need cards for.
The first project I decided to make was a Anniversary card for Hubby. We will have been married for 42 years on October 30th. (if I don't divorce him before then)
For my card I used all scraps from my stash. The clouds were cut from Pooh and Friends and the Hot Air Balloon was cut from Everyday Pop-up Cards. The sentiment is from My Pink Stampers Love-alicious and the twine was given to me from one of my blogging friends.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges.
D.L. Arts Thankful Thursday Challenge
Go Fish is celebrating there 1 Year Anniversary( WTG) so of course this weeks challenge is a Anniversary card.
