I finally did it!!

I got my Cricut Expression for my birthday almost 2 years ago. I use it on almost every layout. I got Design Studio a year or so ago, and had not taken it out of the box. I was a bit intimidated with it. Well, I finally got it registered, learned how to weld letters and updated my firmware on the Cricut itself. I created the title on this page.

I was so excited that I was able to create it and cut it out on the first try. Now I can't wait to do something more intricate.

This layout is based on a sketch at Sketches! {by tamara}. This sketch is for June Guest Designer Challenge. I knew what I wanted to do with almost as soon as I saw it. I had so much fun with this layout.

Sweet Dreams

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Sunday/Mother's Day. I went out to lunch with my youngest son today. We had some great food at Panera. I finally felt like working in the scrap room this afternoon, so I put together this layout that I have been contemplating for the last several days.

These are photos of David and Willie from early April. David sat down with him and he just fell sound asleep in David's arms. I based the layout on this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch. I really liked it when I saw it, and pretty much decided that day what photos I would use. The sketch was also perfect the the half circle challenge at SnC this month.

I used my Create a Critter Cricut cartridge for the first time today. The title, little lamb and the moon and stars are cut from this cartridge. There are so many cute things on it. I think I will be using it a lot.

Thanks for looking.
