I did it!!  
I entered my very first challenge on Exploring Cricut
The challenge was "Disney Dreaming"-- using any Disney carts. I had a white gift bag and it was too plain so I painted it with lavender acrylic paint.
I  Used Pooh and Friends to make this cute Eeyore bag with matching tag..
I cut Eeyore at 5 inches..  For the Happy Birthday I used Pooh Font.
 I just think this set is so cute and I love Eeyore!!  

I crinkled my pattern paper up and then sanded the top..to put a lil something to it..
I inked the edges of the bag.. I used my Stampin Up pastels to go around all the lil pieces of Eeyore before putting together to add some depth to him.. Then I added stickles to Eeyore's eyes, bow on tail and to the cute flower I made on top.
For the tag, I pop dotted Eeyore..
I just think he is so adorable!!

I also used the Stampin up pastels on the 
Happy Birthday so you could see the 
wood markings in the letters.

Another Wreath

This is another paper wreath that I made, using all greens. 
I used my green inks from Stampin Up.. I love their INKS!!
 I think it turned out pretty!! 
I was worried how all green would look..
What do you think?

Baby Boy album with Matching Can

I know these are older pictures but I haven't finished anything new since the wreath. talk about that wreath..lol.. Last night I posted a picture of it on facebook and boom I had someone ask for me to make them one in greens and whites.. I was tickled pink..))
But this boy set I made back in April for my cousin. It was her second baby so she didn't have a baby shower but who don't like gifts for the new little one.  So I made her this mini album that fit into the  altered paint can. I used alot of cricut on here, some of the lil animals I stamped, colored and cut out.  I added googley eyes to them all..  I used the New Arrival cart.. That has always been my favorite when creating for kids.. I love the animals! I had such a hard time due to the fact this was my first mini album for a Boy.  Girls are so much easier because you can never over do it with the lace, flowers, you know all the cute girly stuff. I was trying to make this one not too cutsie!! I must of done ok because my cousin really liked them both!!

I have been crafting away!  
A very dear friend of mine took me to hospital and then picked me up when I was released.. She wouldn't take any money for gas and gas is not cheap! So I pondered on what I could make for her.. hmmm then it hit me!! She is redoing her kitchen from red to purple.. so this is what I came up with!! A wreath for her door!! It is all made from paper.. lots and lots of flowers but so fun to create!! I can't wait to see her reaction when I give it to her..
