Blogiversary Recipe Challenge

Here goes another quickie for me!  I am still trying to finish up all the activities that we did for my son's 4th birthday.  We spent a day at the Magic Kingdom with Grandma and Cousin, so here is a quick layout for that!

The recipe included using at least three buttons.  I actually had to go to Jo-Ann's this weekend to buy buttons!  I actually grouped three buttons together to make little Mickey heads, and I made three of them.  It was the best I could come up with!  I used the Mickey Font cartridge for the saying and the tag at the bottom, which I will later fill out with information about the day.  Thanks for looking!

Blogiversary Sketch Challenge

Well, here I go...entry number two and getting braver by the minute.  I really wish I had more time to over-think these things, but I just don't.  I promised myself that I could enter all of these contests as long as it helps me catch up in my scrapbooks, so I have to fit the challenge requirements into what I am currently working on in my DS scrapbook...and I am FIVE years behind...Ah, well!  I will get better someday!

It is a birthday layout for my son's 4th birthday.  I used Birthday Bash and Celebrate cartridges, It's My Party paper, by My Mind's Eye and some Recollections embellishments for his cute lil' cheeks!  Hope you like!

First Challenge Entry ~ #42 ~ Love Shack Card

Ok, here is my first sad attempt at a craft blog...I've been in the Cricut Circle since the start up and have yet to enter any challenges because I just think my stuff SUCKS compared to everyone else's, but I have decided that you can't win if you don't play and since they pick winners by random generator now, the most I have to lose is some face by people looking at my stuff and then running away!  And...I won't even be able to tell!  So I shall get over the fear and press on...

Here is my entry for challenge #42 ~ World Card Day.  I don't think it is completely horrid for my first card ever.  I do layouts...and I do 'em fast and easy, since I am SO far behind.  I've been spending too much time collecting and it is time for me to start using all this chit I've accumulated shopping, rather than creating!  This card is for a co-worker's mom who is mostly homebound.  She has a small brood of finches to help her pass the time and she calls herself their "Madame" so I thought she would get a kick out of this card.

Anywho ~ This was recipe, really.  Every cut is from 3 Birds on Parade, all the papers are from my stash, and then I used some Stickles and CM ink for dimension.

Please don't laugh too hard!  I'm a the fancy stuff anyways :)
