Shaved Ice Scrapbook Page

My son LOVES shaved ice!!  After a day of playing putt-putt and go-kart riding with friends, we stopped for some shaved ice!  It was yummy and he was a clown!  I used my new Cricut Lite cartridge Carousel.  I noticed, after I was done, that I had the real dial size button on, but the cones lined up pretty well!  I LOVE this cartridge!!  I think it may have become one of my favorites! =)

Helicopter Thank You!

My son had surgery in June and right outside his hospital room window was the helicopter pad. He was very insistent on flying the helicopter! Since he couldn't sit in the helicopter I thought I would go buy him a replica in the gift shop. Unfortunately, they didn't have one! The lady in the gift shop heard my story and picked up the phone. She asked me his name and room number. A few minutes later the flight crew showed up in his room!!! Better yet, they took him to the helicopter! He was allowed to sit in every seat, tour the control center, try on the helmets, and talk on the radio! So, I made this card as a thank you to the crew because they were so wonderful with him! I also sent them pictures of the tour. They made a bummer experience FABULOUS!! =) I cut the Thank you from the Wild Card cartridge.

Beach Party Treat Bag

Every Friday, my son's school has a Beach Party! For their first party, which included a show and tell, I made treat bags (of course). For the show and tell portion of the day, my son stood up and talked about making these treat bags with mommy and then he discussed, and demonstrated, his fishing pole! LOL! Gotta love little boys!

Get Well Soon!

I made this card for a friend that just had surgery.  Her entire family is involved in the rodeo, so I new she would love this horse!  I cut the horse from the Create A Critter cartridge and the yellow background was cut from the Accent Essentials cartridge.  I can't remember the exact size of the card (I made it in May), but it fit in a business size envelope.  I made it long in order to place a gift certificate inside.  She LOVED it, along with the gift certificate! =)


Oh my goodness!  I can't believe I finally own an ATG gun!  I went to Michaels last week (just to look around) and BAM! I walked right into a display of ATG guns!  To make matters even better, I had a 40% coupon!!!  So I grabbed the gun and RAN to the register.  With my coupon it was only $21!  I'm so super excited (can you tell) and it's PINK!  I sent my hubby in the next day and we both used a 40% coupon to buy some refill tape, too!  LOL!
