"Love Bug" Scrapbook Page

To finish up the scrapbooking of our family re-takes, I wanted to make a fall theme.  I used Simply Charmed cartridge for the Love Bug and the hearts.  I also used my 1 oz orange stickles that I purchased at Michaels on black Friday!  They were a 3 pack for $6.99!  I think I'm addicted to stickles!
My son is so cuddly and lovable just like me!  That's why I titled this page Love Bug!
I also attempted using the Glassy Accents for the heart in the bottle cap affect.  I'm not sure about it yet.  I'll have to experiment some more with it.

"Get Well Soon" Scrapbook Page

No cricut used (again) for this one.  My brain wasn't exactly being creative at this time.  I think it was around lunch and I was getting hungry. LOL!

This was the first time my son had needed to stay home sick for this season.  His medicine had kicked in and knocked him out!

"Prince Charming" Scrapbook Page

Since I had so much NEW scrapbook "candy" to play with, my wonderful hubby gave me a kid-free day of scrapbooking!  I was a scrapbooking FOOL!

I used my new "B is for Boy" cricut lite cartridge.  These were some of our family re-takes.  I LOVE when our photographer does the kissing photos.  She is awesome and happens to be a close friend! =)  I applied some bling to the crown.  I love black and white pictures with just a touch of color.  I wanted it to be beautiful but a little masculine, too.  I love how it turned out! =)

Black Friday Finds

I'm not a big shopper, but when there is an AWESOME sale on scrapbooking "candy" I'm game!  So, my mom and I met at 4:30 A.M. (I'm so not a morning person either).  Our first stop was Wal-mart to stock up on some cricut lite cartridges.  They were out of the new ones but they honored the price on some of the old ones.  So, I got the Block Party and B is for Boy!  Then we were in line (if was 25 degrees outside) for Michael's to open.  We literally RAN into the store when the doors opened!  At 60% off who wouldn't RUN?!  I got the Winter Frolic and Boys Will Be Boys cartridges.  I had saved the Michaels gift cards from my birthday (everyone in my family got me one) so lucky I was able to use two of them!  My wonderful mother bought me the Tinkerbell and the Dreams Come True cartridges ($19.99 each) for Christmas!  Unfortunately, I can't open them UNTIL Christmas!  Then, off to Hobby Lobby I went (after dropping mom off), they had their cricut cartridges AND accessories 50% OFF!  There, I stocked up on Toy Story, Simpy Charmed, and Wrap It up cartridges!  I also got a rain check for the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge!  I was so excited that I woke my husband up squealing about my new cartridges!  I had to show him everyone!
While at Hobby Lobby I also got some new mats and replacement blades for my cricut - all at 50% off!  Needless to say, my Black Friday was a HUGE success! =)

Summer Paradise Scrapbook Page

I wanted to document my own personal "summer paradise".  I was going through pictures to scrap and I came across this one from this past summer.  I LOVE a day when my husband is at work, my son is at school, and I can float in the pool with a soda and great book!
I didn't use the cricut for this page.  (I know, shocking!)  I did use stickles for the FIRST time, and I think I'm in love!

"HAMM" Card

I made this card as a Thank You to a friend that took our family pictures this year.  She loves pigs.  I cut the pig and "HAMM" from my new Toy Story cartridge.  The background circle was cut form the Accent Essentials cartridge.  She LOVED it!

Halloween Treat Bags

I made 50 of these treat bags for my son's preschool class.  I used a stamp from "My Favorite Things" and the border punch is a spider web around the page punch from Martha Stewart.
