Cri-Kit Giveaway!!!!!

Hello my dear followers and viewers!!! Today I have some awesome news 4 you!!! A few weeks back I got a very cool email in which I was asked if I could test the Cri-Kits Gel pens and adaptor and of course I said I would be honored!! But, best of all I was given the opportunity to offer my followers a chance to GIVEAWAY a set of these awesome pens!!!

You have a 2nd chance to win these cool pens by going to my BFF Gaby after you comment here!!! Read through all the post for extra info!!!

Isn't this the coolest!!! and if you just can't wait to see if you are the winner, well you can order these awesome pens right HERE! They have different colors to choose from! AND if this wasn't exciting enough, if you order and in the section where they ask "where did you find us?" you put my blog name you get a couple of their new swirl pens!

Onto my projects!!!

My first card is a Joy fold card but.... I have it side ways! I used the Crikit pen adaptor on my Cricut machine and I made sure I follow the instructions on the pressure and speed!!! Please read them, you will be happy if you do! :) I used my Gypsy to draw and then I used the hide contour feature to hide the parts I did not want cut. Make sure you do not unload your mat, just go back to it. 

My next card is a Peek-A-Boo card! Again, I used my Gypsy and used these awesome pens to draw my images and then, without taking out my mat replaced my pen adaptor with the blade and cut the outside of the images! Don't these look awesome?!?!?!

Didn't these turn great?!?!?!?!

Now, onto the funnest part of this LONG post!!! Your chance to win a set of these awesome pens!!! AND you get to choose what color of pens you get!!!

This is what you have to do: Make sure you are a follower, leave a comment under this post and tell me what color pens you would love to have! There are 4 to choose from:

and don't forget if you order a set of these and you mention you heard of these pens from me, Scrapbookaholic Abby, you get these for free!!

If you go visit my BFF Gaby and see what she created with these pens you get ANOTHER chance to win the set of your choice!!! That's TWO chances!!!! So, after leaving a comment here go to her blog and answer the question she has for you for that extra chance!!!!

Like always... I hope you like what you saw!!!

My first Milk Carton Box~~ Halloween Theme!!!

Hello my dear followers and viewers!! Today as I was blogging I saw on Flowerdisco's Scrap Hut's blog a super cute Milk Carton Box she created!! I loved it so much and since Abby (my daughter) was still sleeping I dived into it!!!

Agnes (Flowerdisco) sent us to Beate Johns from Splitcoaststampers for the detailed instructions! Super easy!!!!

Here it is! I will put some pens and pencils for my son's 4th grade teacher!! If the pencils are too heavy I can probably throw in a rock to make it stay!

Hope you enjoy!!!!!
