Fun week!

This week I got to enjoy some creative time, finally! I figured I'd better enjoy it while I can since school is almost out and everyone will be home all day................................I think I feel a new chore chart coming on :)

Anyway, my son will be 16 in a week and is going to have some friends over for a party. That gave me the perfect excuse to pull out the Cricut and make some invites:

This paper from DCWV was the perfect "teen" look I was going for. The back side could be cut into four equal pieces. After cutting them apart I folded and glued them shut to make a little "envelope". The details for the party are on the inside slider piece. The words on the front were cut with the Cricut. It sure made putting together easy.

Supplies: DCWV Rucksack paper, circle punch, cardstock (Stampin Up), Brown ribbon (Stampin Up), Cricut cartridge (Celebrations)

Our youngest turned 3 today so I also made this:

He loves yellow and Curious George!!
Also did an Anniversary cake for a client:

I used a new brand of fondant called Satin Ice............LOVE IT!!! It worked like a dream.

The Scrap Review

There is a great new site that I have really started loving. It's called The Scrap Review (TSR). They review scrapbook produects - without bias! It's great to be able to read the pros and cons of new products and get information that really helps.

Check it out - you'll love it too. (Plus they are having a huge prize raffle coming up so it's worth a look)

The possibilities are endless!!!! Guess I'd better start searching for change in the couch cushions :)
