Yee Ha! We got a Cricut for Christmas! David got me a Cricut to share with Mom & Dad in pitched in some funds, too! This thing is so way cool! We also got the Doodlecharms cartridge. I tell you what this machine is so neat! David has even been amazed at what it does. Mom & Dad left to go to Denver on Christmas Day so she hasn't even been able to play with it. I've been having so much fun. I made an ice cream cone, a title for a layout, & some embellishments for our annual album. I JUST CAN'T STAY AWAY FROM IT!

Also, I did get the album done for Cindy's daughter, Sophie. I did forget to scan the pages before I gave it to her so I will have to get it back so that I can do that. I impressed even myself with some of the pages. When she saw it, she was so excited! She wants me to do a party for her because she has friends that don't scrapbook. I'm going to do it, I'm just not sure how it will work out. If you have any suggestions, I'm open to ideas! I'll post the scans soon & some other stuff, too.

Amost A Month!?

Oh, my goodness! It's been almost a month since I last posted!! That's crazy!

I've been pretty busy with scrapping for others rather than myself. I just completed the album that I did for my friend's daughter's birthdays. I've still got a few more things to do but it's mostly done! Yea!

I did a layout from one of Becky's Sketches from Creating Keepsakes. I'm actually submitting it for publication. You are supposed to use either 12x12 or 8.5x11 but I was able to adapt it for 8x8! I got 12 photos on one 2 page layout. I was pretty pleased with myself. Here's the scans from it.

I went out of my box quite a bit here by doing some doodling on the page. I am really pleased with how it turned out, though.

In the orginal sketch, the area above the bottom row of photos was left blank. Well, my mind started racing & I thought, "why can't I put more pictures there? For that matter, why can't I put several rows of pictures there?" I think it turned out GREAT! The next photo shows how I added more photos! ;o)

What do you think? Cool, huh?
