A layout for my childhood friend and a Bday card for my sister in-law

Today I created a Bday card for my sister in-law. I used my newest cart (a gift from my BF). It has become my favorite!! I used Accent Essentials for the scallop and a square for George. I welded them using my Gypsy. Paper is regular cardstock and patterned paper is DCWV. I also used the cuttlebug.
I also created a LO for my childhood friends who I found thru Facebook after almost 20 years. One of the sisters, Dalia, hooked us up with loads of Cricut carts. As a thank you Gaby (my BF) and I are creating a few LO. This is the first of many to come. The title of this LO reads: "Flower Power" the reason for this is that all their names are names of flowers in Spanish: Azucena (not in picture), Margarita, Dalia, Rocio, Flor, Violeta and Azhalia. I love these pictures of them!! I cut flowers from Accent Essentials andone other I can't remember right now. Paper is all Cloud 9. Used bling for flowers and on the edge of pictures and I also used popouts for flowers.

Organizing and Clean Mats!

Today, I had promised myself (actually, last night) that I would scrap. I really love the LO that my best friend is doing for her niece and felt inspired. BUT... there is always a BUT when you have 4 kids!! I got to cleaning my scrap room and organizing many things that still did not have a home. I am so proud that I was able to finish!! YEY... but, in the organizing of it all, I realized that I buy stickers because they are so darn cute and not necessarily because I am going to use them!!! I have over 120 of them, some since 2000!!! I want to say I feel guilty, but not really! They look awesome on my wall. After I was done organizing I needed to clean all my Cricut mats. My best friend (again) told me to wash them with really hot water and a bit of soap. I used the green side of the dish sponge and cleaned them, it was so easy!!! After that I dried them with a towel and let them air dry. To re-glue I used Martha Stewart thick tip glue pen. I am letting them dry overnight. I have done this before and they work just perfect! Here are some pictures of all my doings. Oh! I also organized all my loose ribbons!!

My Best Friend is the BEST!!!

I wanted to share with my followers that I received an awesome gift from my best friend Gaby!! Ever since this cartridge came out I said it was my favorite. But ever since it came out money has been tight. I am so excited to share this with you and really want Gaby to know that I am truly thankful for this gift. Here is my first card with the cart. I used the idea from Emma from My Creative Time. I really love her stuff and I especially love that she show how she does all her things on the Gypsy!!! Here is Gaby's Thank You card.

POTM for my niece Ciaraney!

I convinced my brother to buy from me Basic Grey's(BG) Page of the Month Kit (POTM). But, in order for this to happen, I have to be the one putting together the kits! Fine with me!! :) Here is March and an extra one I created instead of the April kit.
