Winning Bite Sized Page...



I know my bloging has been a little lacking lately.
I've been a busy girl, tho.

What have I been up to?  Well, I've been busy creating submissions to the Make It From Your Heart Contest which is open to CTMH Consultants until the end of the month, and last weekend was our local annual Fall Fair that I was also busy creating projects for.

I won't be able to share anything yet that I am entering into the CTMH MIFYH contest, but I can share my winning bite sized page from the Fall Fair with you.

For all of my projects I ended up using photos that I had printed up quite a while ago and they were just sitting here at home, so some of the photos you may see in my upcoming projects may look familiar... ; )

On this 9x9 page, I used a beautiful new paper pack called Dreamin'.  Perfect for those 'fall' photos.  This picture of Cole was taken when he was 6.  He's now 11, so he's about double in size... lol   Look at that cute little face!  :)

I used my new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the tree and the title.

Oh, and I was so excited to put my winnings from the Fall Fair (cash and gift cards for the local scrapbooking store), plus cash from my birthday on Sunday, towards a Cricut Expressions machine.  Now I will be able to cut out things larger than 5 1/2" which my orignial little Cricut could only do.  Happy, happy!  :)


I'm still trying to create more projects for the MIFYH Contest, so I may not have anything to share for a little while again.  But maybe I will....  just not sure yet.

But until next time, happy creating!  :)

Love it! Fall is my favorite season so I'm really lovin' this Dreamin' packet. Glad to hear you could upgrade to the big machine. It makes a ton of difference and I adore mine. I feel like my blog is lacking lately too. *Sigh*...Contest rules.
