Another card in the series of Ty & Rex- now they are working on a Snowdino- hope the boys like it and their ornaments.

I actually got a nice card from Dawn the other day and a picture of the boys - I hope they have a wonderful Christmas.

Shall We Dance Blog Hop and weekly challenge

If you are here for the Shall WE Dance Blog hop you are in the right place. You should have started at http://greengirlscraps.blogspot.com/   
and arrived here from
If you have gotten here another way though I have listed everyone below. Please post a comment I am giving away blog candy- but it is a surprise. I will select the winner on Monday evening so please leave a way for me to contact you. I would love for you to become a follower but it is not required.  Now on to the show.


 I used the medallion function and made it 11.5 inches. I also used the SWD cartridge for the title. I have been struggling with this layout for awhile because the costume is not the traditional ballet pink and although I was not over joyed with the cartridge I knew I had a few photos I could use it for- in the end I am pretty happy and the hop got me moving to use the cartridge. Hope the hop inspires others to try it out. By the way the photos are from scanned slides and are 42 years old- and yes that is me. I want to encourage everyone to scrapbook about their own childhood so you can share it with your children and grandchildren ( I don't have any of those yet). I made a quick tulle tutu and added Prima flowers, punched butterflies, Prima bling and of course Stickles.
The paper is from October Afternoon. I hope you enjoyed.

Nov Circle Magazine Challenge

The challenge was to create a box or bag with one cut from a critcut cartridge. I created this ornament box- I used TBBM for the box, WICO for snowflake and AMU for the circle and letter initial. The paper is from We R Memory Keepers andI love the fact that the Santa and sleigh wrapped around perfectly. I used ribbon from American crafts  (which I never get enough of) the ribbon runs under the initial which had been popped up- a fun way to keep the box closed. I wish that they would design a box and lid separately- but I see that Cindy posted a template on the Circle Blog on Wednesday.

weekly circle challenge

This is for the Circle weekly challenge- we had to use black in the project and re-purpose something. I used the Winter Woodland cart for the bird and the branch- paper is SEI from last year and Peace is from K&Company- the re-purposed part is the window in the card- it is from the packaging of a Cricut Cartridge- there should be a use for all that plastic. I wanted to add a rub on but my daughter has
reorganized my scraproom and  I can't find them? Pretty funny.
