Flutterby Wednesday #95 and Quixotic Challanges #12 I Believe in Faries

I was inspired to try the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge over at my friend Karen's Blog.  Karen is a Designer for Flutterby Wednesday and I always see her creations. This Farie Portrait of my daughter seemed perfect for this challenge.  I also found the blog Quixotic Challanges and this week it is I believe if Faries, so I thought this was so perfect, I entered it there also!
I hope you like it.

Makayla's hair was long enough for her to sit on, but after sleeping in sponge rollers all night and keeping them in until just before the photo was taken, we created the wonderful thick ringlett's for her Farrie Portrait!

I have stamped 2 sizes of butterflies in the background, also used some butterflies punched out and on popups, rinestone butterflies, and hand made flowers in co-ordinating colours. I am trying to make alot of my embelishments so they all match.

Just Buggin' Challenge #22

Challenge #22 -All About Food
The challenge is to make a food themed project.
It can be a treat container, food themed layout, card etc...

The Cartridges I used are "Noel" and "Wild Card"!

I am really enjoying the Just Buggin' Challenges because I am looking deep into my Cricut Cartridge collection and really using them.  I have so many great images that I normally would have looked right past, I really appreciate them alot more now! 

This is Christmas 2007!
It is Christmas Day and the Children are very happily digging into the Ginger Bread House that they made on Christmas Eve Day.

Happy Valentines! Challenge #23 Just Buggin' and Frosted Design Valentines Challenge

Valentines Day!

Red, Hearts, Glitter, Candy, Love, Romance, Candle lit Dinners!

Am I Right?

Ok, so maybe that’s what a tradition girl’s wants! But what about the man, I guess it depends on which man! My husband is romantic his own way, but for him, he is an outdoorsy type, hunting, fishing, any sport, anything with a motor! So how do you get the sparkle of Valentines Day across with an outdoorsy theme, well I hope this is it!
Please tell me what you think!

Frosted Designs
Valentines Challenge - No Pink or Red!
challenge #23 Just Buggin' - Love ya
Make something for Valentine's Day using your Cricut.

For this Card I used the Campout Cartridge for the sign
& Wild Card Cartridge for the sentiment, grass and bullrush (some call it a cats tail)!
As always I distressed my paper, put some glitter pen on the "be my valentine" and fun flock on the bullrush.

For my Outdoors Man's Valentine!
Then I will use it as an embellishment in his scrapbook!

My little Goalie Played Out today!

My little goalie is Ranked the #1 Goalie in Novice right now, with the lowest points against average. His team is doing so well working together, they as a team have only lost one game all season. They are a Great Team, with a Great Coaching Staff, and Wonderful Supportive Parents! 
The BEST part is they are also HAVING FUN!!!!!!

But that being said, (mothers have to brag sometimes), today my little goalie really wanted to play an out position, so the coach arranged for he and another player to switch! Congrat's to both boys for playing a wonderful game in postions they are not used to!
They both did a great job and had some fun.
We won 8 to 2.
I am so proud of my little goalie for telling his team mate what a "great job" he did playing the goalie postion today! He makes me proud.

So here I am, totally unmotivated! Uninspired even though I have many blogs on my list that have tones on inspiration. No pictures calling my name to be scrapbooked even though I have hundreds printed.
I hate cleaning, but do it as we all do!  But for me to have cleaned my pretty little powder room until it sparkles instead of scrapbooking when I had the chance is out of charactor.
I hope this trend does not continue!
Hopefully Sunday I will feel inspired, oh, lol, I guess it is Sunday, lets hope I am inspired later then.
