My First Blog Candy Entry!!!!!

Wow... is all I can say about this tasty blog candy!!!!Have you checked out Make it Crafty Big News Giveaway Candy! I will be honest,  I was not a follower, but I am so one now. Now I know what your thinking..."because of the blog candy she has to offer"... No, I actually spent some time checking out Make it Crafty blog and I absolutely love her work. TONS of talent I only wished that I had.  Zoe asked to check out her favorite 3 post and pick one of our favorites and why. The post I picked was the Pop Up Card post.  I have always been in love with turtles and this one just stood out to me. When I was younger I also loved pop up books and this card is just so darn cute. Don't you think?? You can check out this post here

Take at look at the blog candy Zoe is offering!!!!!

It a Toy Story Theme!!!!!!

Well after much time spending on PTO business, I am finally making time for crafting again. My son turns 6 in June and I really wanted to make my own birthday invites for him. I was searching for some time for a file for SCAL because I just don't have the time yet to sit down and create my own files. So after much searching, Lindsay from The Frugal Crafter's posted her free file for me to snag!!! This was perfect and now I am so happy that I have finally finished them!!!! I decided to make 20 invites for my son's class and a few extra for friends not in his class. I did not have the same stamp as Lindsay, but found these cute Toy Story Martian stickers that fit perfect inside the gear. As much as I love the screw brads on Lindsay's card, I just went with plain silver brads. To save time I used Gunmetal Stickles for the small gears rather than using eyelets. I do want to make sure that Lindsay knows how thankful I am for her sharing her file with me!!!! My son was so excited after I finished the first one that he ask if he could have one too. How cute. He is so in love with Toy Story right now.

Once again, Thank you so much Lindsay for your AWESOME file!!!!! I hope you like the way it turned out.
I really missed playing around with my cricut with my SCAL software!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
