Road Trip

Tomorrow afternoon we leave for our nice LONG (15 + hour) road trip. I am excited about the trip itself but no so much getting there. I fear the worst with our girls. Being that they are both under 3, who knows how they will react to the long car ride. I am always prepared for whatever they give me but I'm still anxious about it. Hopefully the movies, books, coloring stuff, snacks, and random things I've picked up for $1 will keep them entertained long enough until they get tired, and fall asleep for the night. One can only hope. Lol.

Yesterday, when I went to get the mail, two cartridges were sitting there waiting for me. :) I was so excited I rushed upstairs and opened them right away. I'm such a little kid sometimes I swear. I did manage to do a layout yesterday and hopefully one more today. I'm also hoping I can get pictures up before we leave.

I'm already going thru crafting withdrawals and we haven't even left yet. Lol. On the bright side our time in Washington should be filled with family and friends and new experiences so that's good.

Throwback Thursday Challenge

I've been blog surfing(is that even a term?) for the past few days. I came across another challenge that looked like fun. I decided to enter it too! Yep, that's right, two challenges in two days. For me that's a lot, considering I'm still learning the ins and outs of my cricut. I've had it for a few months but have been working like crazy so I haven't had the time or energy to play with it. Since I'm out of school for the summer I'll have lots of time on my hands(I hope)

Any-who, back to the challenge. Its over at This weeks challenge is to use the Doodlecharms cartridge (which I don't have) and make a scrapbook page. Since I'm new to this whole scene I don't have the cartridge so I used Paper Dolls and Paisley.

Spots and Dots Challenge

I entered my very first challenge today!I think it was a great challenge to do for a first timer like myself. It was over at I'd like to mention that this entire card was made from scraps! While I was cleaning/re-organizing my scrap closet I came across LOTS of scraps.

I used Paisley Cartridge for the sunglasses (cut at 2 1/2)
The fun & sun stamp is from the dollar bins at Target
Red rhinestones are from my stash
