Did I scare you??  Happy Halloween.  Just had to share my candy boxes I made (thanks to Tina Sutton for the inspiration).  I made these for my scrappin' buddies (we had our monthly "cult" meeting yesterday;)

Here's a treat given to me by Mahie,  (her Mommy)Pam & (her Grandma)Lynette.  Isn't it just the cutest...lovin' the googly eyes. 

Have a safe and creative Halloween.  Don't eat too much candy;)

Too Fun

Sometimes when creating it is just not there.  I thought and thought all day about how to make a card for a co-worker's baby who just turned one.....and nothing was coming to me.  I got out different stamp sets and just stared and NOTHING;(  So I walked away...cooked and ate dinner, walked the dog, took my shower and then... poof just like that... I remember I had some cute little Cricut monkeys I made for a customer (I made extras for me)  and then it started to flow.  I cut the card, the #1 and mats with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The monkeys were cut with Life's a Party cartridge.  I was so excited when I was finished I was jumping around going "look what I just made..isn't is the cuteset"  as my son looked at me like I had lost what mind I had left;)  Sometimes guys just don't get us. 
Anyway here is the card I think is is just too stinkin' CUTE and it was oh so easy once the idea came to my fimble mind!

Thanks for hopping by:)

My Life List Journal

As I mentioned last month, I am taking Tracy Weinzapfel's "Life List Challenge".  Here is one of pages I completed. 

We had Panda Express last week and my fortune cookie read "You are an adventurer", which I thought was just perfect for this page:)

My Inner Artist

So, I am trying to uncover my inner artist..I know she is in there somewhere;)
I have been taking some online art classes and I just wanted to share some of my "art".

I am currently taking a class called Supplies Me taught by Jane Davenport.  I am just getting started, but here's my first attempt at drawing faces in 3 different shapes.  Remember this is just a practice sheet I did while watching her video.  I have to admit I am totally in awe of how simple it is to draw a face when given the proper instructions and breaking it down into sections. 

 Jane is such a joyful person and her teaching style is so encouraging and fun, she makes you believe that you can draw!  Now I have to break out my colored pencils and get to work on making my girls pretty and practice. practice , practice:)

Thanks for hopping get out there and CREATE;)

Play Time

Here's a card set I made using the tutorial by Aaron Booth.  These are so fun to make:)

I used the Roxie Paper, Remarkable Wreath Stamp Set (love this stamp set) and cut the cards and mats with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  Have I said how much I love that cartridge!!!  I even cut envelopes to match the cards (oops should of taken a picture of them).

Thanks for hopping go do something CREATIVE;)
