Cricut Creations

I have been busy working on a few recipe swaps that needed to be completed. I decided to use the cricut design studio this time. Here is what I came up with....

The swap could be any recipe but you needed to have a bunny theme going on. I was kinda tired of what I had been doing on my swaps and was trying to come up with something different. So I started playing around with the cricut design studio and my Geroge Cartridge and came up with the little "Mesh" as I call it of flowers and circles, made with the polka dot paper. That was all cut using the cricut. Then I needed to add the bunny theme. When I saw this little guy I knew he was right. Here is a close up shot of him.

Ain't he cute!!

I am also involved in a Recipe Divider Swap. Each participant could choose 2 sections to make dividers for. I chose snacks and desserts, two of my favorites things. After the success of the Mesh I had created, I went back to the design studio for my divider. Here it is, what do you think?

I used the Doodlecharms, Alphalicious and George Cartridges to create this little frame. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. Now I only need to make 10 more.... but not today,

Today I'm off to a specialty cake decorating class. My DIL gave me an all day class on specialty cakes. Last year for her birthday, I gave her lessons for the Wilton Cake Decorating Class, I also bought the lessons for myself. We had a great time, so when this came up, she bought us both a ticket. Tell you more about the class next time.

Fab 5 List

I was tagged by Jewels to list five things about me. Well, here goes....

1. I'm a mother, sister, daughter, granddaughter, grandmother and friend.
2. I love Roses. I have been rose gardening since I was about 8 years old. My first home in the late 70's included a rose garden with three rose bushes and every home I have had since then has had one. Today I have over 50 bushes.
3. I love music. Just about any type will soothe me. I perfer to listen to music then watch tv. I mostly listen to country.
4. Reading is another passion for me. My reading material must be light and entertaining. Nothing depressing or scary for me.
5. I love to journal in little notebooks. Well, okay maybe its the journals I love. I use them for all sorts of things. Taking notes at workshops, recording my daily events and I particularly love handmade notebooks, I am waiting on an altered journal swap to be returned to me anyday now.

Whose next to list their fab 5???
