Explosion Box and card

I made this explosion box and card for a good friend of my sister's who got married in August. Rileigh is a sweet girl who chose a hard life as her husband Trent is in the Army. Trent is already preparing to be sent overseas yet again. I wanted to do something special that she add her own pictures.

The dominating color of their wedding was yellow so I used that when I created the explosion box. The heart is cut from Indie Art, flowers are prima that I got on sale at Michaels and the inside middle of the box I embossed the yellow with my Cuttlebug using my D'vine swirl folder. The stamp is one of my favorites "The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than ending."

The card is from the Sweetheart cart. I absolutly love how it turned out. The yellow was cut out of DCWV glittler paper.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!!


Helmet Card for Kaegan

Here is another card that I made for Kaegan. If you'd like to learn more about this wonderful little boy and how he is progressing in leaps and bounds after his stroke, I have a link in this post here.

I used sports mania for the helmet and plantin schoolbook for the numbers. Its pretty simple but I'm trying to keep them fairly flat. Kaegan's aunt Sarah told me that they would be putting all the wonderful cards that he recieves into a scrapbook.

Have a wonderful Friday and a blessed weekend. We are off the the inlaws for the weekend so the girls can be spoiled a little and Anthony and I can go on a much needed night out.

Diaper cake meets the cricut!

I made a diaper cake for my dearest friend Margaret who is due with he second son in January. I could only do one layer since I'm going to have to mail it to Texas. The block on the top collapses so that the whole thing will fit in a small box. The "H" on the block is for their last name. I hope she likes and and knows that I miss her.

I used Plantin Schoolbook for all the letters. I also added baby bottles from Doodlecharms on both sides of Troy's name. And for the top of the block I used Beyond Birthdays.

Since I was posting about my first diaper cake with the Cricut I thought I'd post pictures of the other I have done. I didn't have the Cricut when I made them but I really could have used it.

My laptop

I hope that everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween! My girls had a wonderful time trick or treating with Pirate Daddy. They came home loaded with candy and talk of all the wonderful costumes they saw. The girls were really into everyone else dressed up, for them wearing a costume is pretty much a daily occurrence. We have a chest of drawers full of costumes, fun hats and play jewelry. So I'm often accompanied by Super Girl or one of the many Disney Princesses.

On to the crafty part of today's post. I was looking at my desk the other day and realized that my laptop looked a little plain. So I decided that I need to jazz it up a little.

I used pink and green wall pops. The everything but the "M" is from the Sweetheart cartridge, and for the life of me I can't remember what cart the "M" came from.

Thanks for stopping by. I love getting comments!!!
