This is a halloween card I made last night for Emma at My Creative Time design team call. How amazing would that be to be on her design team right. 
 I cut out my little monster from cricut cartridge Bump in the Night. The face is a Peachy keen face. I used Emma's Build a Banner kit for the Boo banner. The letters "boo" is from her stamp set Anyday Bingo and Crossword set. I havent bought her halloween or christmas stamp set so i had to use a stamp set from Pink by Design. 
Go check out My Creative Time. Her stamps are amazing and she even sells dies too which of course are awesome!

I added dots of stickles randomly to the page as well.

Baby Boy Card and Layout

Tomorrow is my cousin's baby shower. This is her first child and she is having a boy. How exciting! I made her a card using the Baby Steps cartridge. I added baby blue stickles to his hat and the edge of the cloud. Then some gold stickles to the moon. The sentiment is from All Star Baby stamp set by Emma at My Creative Time. I am in love with all her stamp sets. They are a must!  The paper is K & Company.
 This layout I am going to put in a 12x12 frame for her. These two sentiments are also from All Star Baby by Emma at My Creative Time. The sentiment cutest baby ever is stamped on one of Emma's dies as well the folded in half. I ran the baby's clothes and hat through the cuttlebug folder.

Fair LO

Every year in June is the county fair. Such a fun time of year and a perfect way to spend some days of summer break. These are the pictures of my son, Daniel, whom was super excited to go on the bungee jump thing that year. He was even doing flips and everything. 

 All my paper and elements are from Best Creations Loops and Scoops paper line. Isn't it adorable. I am just so in love with their paper. Super adorable. The only cricut cut is the fancy circle in the middle of the layout which I cut from Elegant Edges. 
 I used a chipboard ticket from the stack and added the year to it with their stickers.  
Hope you enjoy and have a great day.

Background Paper Challenge

The last August challenge for the First of the Month Challenge is to make our
own background paper. I started with a white piece of paper then I distressed it slightly with pink ink. I then used my butterfly punch from stampin up and punched t on a seperate paper.

And I used a stamp sentiment from My Creative Time with Emma.

Reading Rocks!!! LO

Today I made a 2 page layout of my son getting an award in
 Kindergarten. Oh my I cannot believe I am going to have a 
1st grader running around in 2 days. :( Anyways. Last 
year my son went from not reading at all when 
he started Kindergarten to reading at a level 8 by 
mid year. He only had to be at a level 4. Yup 
yup I am one PROUD mama. 

The font is from Making the Grade cricut cartridge. I added some 
stickles just to the first letter of each word for a little more
 effect.  These are a picture of Daniel and his friend and 
Daniel and his teacher Mrs. G. 
I got the books with the apple cut from the newer Recess 
lite cricut cartridge. And I added my own titles. I also 
added some green stickles to the apple stem and leaf.

Ladybug Invitation

Here is the invite I am making for my daughter's 1st birthday. Again I used the ladybug from Doodlecharm cartridge. I could not for the life of me find red paper with black polka dots so I made my own. I got the polka dot stamp from PeachyKeen stamps and stamped with black ink on my red paper. The red and black paper is from Papertrey Ink as well as the ribbon. The white paper pulls out and this is where all the party information will go. 
I am entering this into the Cricut 360 challenge blog which was to make an invite of any kind. Enjoy.

This layout is of my daughter at a friends annual beach party. She LOVED the beach. She was so dirty as you can see by the pictures she even had a sand mustache and beard. On my journal block I used Emma's stamp set Fun in the Sun set
