2 Projects

Well, as my husband says...."you jump around from project to to room"  Yes that is me, I get started on one thing and think of something else while waiting for paint to dry.

I had this white shelf that needed touched up.   So I touched it up with some sample paint I had bought from Walmart.  I painted the trim around it and the holders under the shelf.  This worked out perfectly for just this project only had to spend a $2 and some change on a sample bottle of paint ... and I still have 1/2 bottle left for whatever else I am wanting PINK!!

Hubby had to take some pictures of me working on it, as  you can tell I like PINK!!!

This is the second project I started while the paint was drying on my shelf.  I was technically cleaning up my scrap area, instead I made this.  This is my best friends daughter.  She graduated this year (of course...the reason for class of 2012)  Anyway I cut her graduation invitation up and used her pictures and the 2012 saying.  I printed some paper from the imagine using the Imagine More cart and some bling from Creative Memories ... and got this!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Vinyl Fun

Well it has been a busy week for me as I'm sure with many others for the last week of school. My oldest, Alex just finished 6th Grade with A/B Honor Roll Award for the entire year and Perfect Attendance for the year. My youngest, Cody, finished 2nd Grade with Perfect Attendance for the year and received the Bull Dog Pride Award from his teacher. The Bull Dog Pride Award = Do your Best, Active Listener, Respect and Be Trustworthy. Only 2 kids from every class are chose for this award. 

Ok now here is what I created really fast, while cleaning up my cluttered scrap area.

I started with this creative memories ceramic box I have had.  I don't believe you can order it anymore.  I have always wanted to add some bling, and finally did.

I used the Cricut American Alphabet carts preloaded on the E2
I cut the shadow in deep pink and the light pink in the boarder

I added a little bit of bling for something extra.

Here is the final product.  Thanks for looking!!!
