Address book

Last one for tonight. I loved the card book so much I revised it and made a address book. This cover glitters as well.

Card book

I missd a birthday a while back. I went looking for a book I can use. Sherry...thank you so much...sent me the video to make this little book. I love it. I took it to Kinko's and for $4.99 they bond it for me. The cover has glitter on it that doesn't show well in the picture. I love it!!

Birthday card

This is for one of my friend's twins...a boy and girl who will be 9 on my birthday...May 3. After I took this pic, I added glitter to the ropes on the swing. It really dressed it up.

Finished items

Well the camera is working again. I had put rechargable batteries in it. Recharged them and it still didn't work. Put those batteries in the remote and they worked. Hubby got new batteries and camera works now.

Here are some cards I have done.

Card Book

I am so excited. I have made a little book with calendars in it and pockets to put completed cards. Hopefully no more birthdays sneaking up on me. I am thinking about making a similar address book if I can find a file for the inside. I hope to either get my camera fixed or a new one sooooon.

Sympathy Cards

Yesterday I made 2 sympathy cards. I really wish my camera was working. Both cards were mailed today but I do have the makings for another one. Seems like I need to be making some basic cards and have them on hand.

Tomorrow, a number of us are getting together and scrap for a while. It will be fun. I will take the Personal Cricut with me, so I don't take up too much room. If everyone comes, there should be 5 of us. I will update when I get home.

50th Wedding Anniversary Sentiment

Well I have searched high and low. I have finally found the sentiment for my parents' 50th Anniversary card. We aren't close and I didn't want something mushy. Here it is

Although fifty years
have passed, some aspects of love
will never change,
they just become stronger
through the smiles and tears.
May this be a very special
anniversary as you look back
on all the happy memories
your've shared in your
marriage together.

First full day with the Expression

I am having fun!!! Don't get me wrong...I love my Personal Cricut. I will use it when I go scrappin with friends. The handle on it makes it the prefect little tote. It seems I am getting more done with the Expressions. I wish my camera hadn't big purchase. I can't post what I am making. Right now I am trying to get some cards done. Since Larry is working tomorrow, I hope to get to the point where I can make some decorations for my daughter's high school graduation open house. Well back to work. Almost finished my parents' 50th wedding anniversary card.

Wednesday I was watching HSN for the Cricut Cake. Had no intention of buying. Hubby was here and the Expression was on. He watched it and said order it!! I think you could pick my jaw up off the floor.

It was shipped out of Bristol VA yesterday...all of 2 hours away. I have sat here all day waiting. Finally. 5 minutes ago it was delivered. Off to play now. :)
