Birthday Banner

I can't believe, I forgot to post a picture of my banner. I made this banner for my grandson's birthday party using the Cricut Paper Dolls Cartridge. I posted a picture of the banner on the circut message boards and was featured in the Cricut Chirp and on their website. I couldn't believe it when I got the April Chirp and there was a link to my post. Here is a picture of the banner.

I had a good time making it and my grandson must have enjoyed it also, because at the party he kept telling his guests "See my cake, and my presents and look what Nana did" LOL. He was just too cute. Two points for Nana!!

Weekend Crop

I attended a weekend crop at the Ladybuy Lodge here in town recently. I had such a wonderful time. I didn't know any of the ladies that I was sharing a space with, but I have to tell you they were so much fun. I knew a few of the other ladies but didn't get to sit with them. The Carols from Shreveport were there, Mel Morris and the Treasured Memories ladies were all there. What a creative weekend.
Here are some pictures one of the layouts I did that weekend. I really like the way this one turned out. I used glimmer mist to create my own background paper, made the border with bridal tulle and used my cricut to cut out all the pumpkins and sunflowers then pieced them together and used water coloring to give everything dimension. Some of the sunflowers and pumpkins were popped up to also add dimension.

Paula will be hosting another one in November and I'm already signed up for that one. Can't wait!!!
