 My daughter has been in dance since she was 4yrs old and loves it. She has taken ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop. We tried the competition scene and it wasn't for us, more like me lol.. I am not a "dance mom" haha

The paper is some Creative Memories I had in my stash 

For the font I used the Cricut Cartridge "Twinkle Toes" 

all that is cut out at 2" and Jazz is cut out at 3"

Ballerina was cut out at 3" and stretched to 6"

Thanks for stopping by!!

Have a great weekend,

Water Slide Scrapbook Layout

My kids love to go to Concord Water Park every summer, so I decided to may a 2 page scrapbook layout for today's theme.

The paper I used is from Best Creations and is called Surfs Up, I love this paper for this layout!!
The photo mat's are cut at 1 @ 4x4, 1 @ 4x5, 2 @ 5x5  I backed them in yellow card stock

I used H20 Cricut Cart for all the cuts
Water Park is cut @ 5" in yellow card stock
The tube boy is cut out @ 4" and I inked his hair in brown to make him look more like my son Ryan 
The tube is cut in lime green card stock and I used an off white card stock for the boy

The water slide is cut @ 5" in dark and light blue card stock.

First Birthday Invitation and Banner

I am currently away camping and boating with my kids and hubby, at a lake we have never been before, so I hope my blog is up and running correctly :)

For my first project I made 60 of these cute little 1st Birthday Invitations for my friends daughter. Her birthday is at the end of the month, hard to believe she is turning 1!!

The background paper is from Echo Parks "Hello Summer" line which is perfect for her invitation
I cut the background paper at 5.639 using the Celebrations Cartridge
The middle pink paper has a scalloped edge to it and was cut at 5.167 using the Celebrations Cartridge
The blue background paper was cut at 4.639 also using the Celebrations Cartridge
The number 1 was cut at 2.722 also using the George Cartridge
I added black lines to the 1 to give it some added detail and printed the party information on it using my printer and then loading it into my Cricut and lining it up so it would cut perfectly! 
 For the lady bug and dragonfly I used the Doodlecharms Cartridge 
The lady bug is cut out at .931 and I added black diamond stickles to the body and added black dots for the eyes
The Dragon fly was cut at 1.292 and I added stickles to the wings for added detail
The Flower was cut at 1.5 using the April Showers Cartridge

For my next project I made a matching banner for her highchair

I used the same Echo Park "Hello Summer" paper
For the banner I used Country Life Cartridge
Cut at 5" x 6.125w
Inside banner layer I cut at 5.514w

I AM was cut at 3.181 using the Cherry Limeade Cartridge 
The number 1 was cut at 4.097 using the George Cartridge

The dragon flies are the same ones I cut for the invitation just bigger
I tied green and white checked ribbon

Sew Easy Birthday Card

Happy 4th of July!! I hope your all having a wonderful day celebrating with your family and friends. I thank you for taking the time to check out my blog today and see what project I have made for today.

I chose to make a birthday card for a friend of mine.

For the paper I chose to use "Sweet Day" I purchased from Erica's store.
The zig zag design is from using the Sew Easy Paper Piercing tool and the red sew easy string.
The cupcake is cut from the Create A Critter Cartridge at 2"
I inked the edges in a pale pink
and added black detail to the edges of the cupcake
the "Sweet Birthday Wishes" stamp is from Pink By Design.
