I'm Creating (a little)

So I am creating a little bit again. It felt good. There was a challenge in the Cricut Circle to use cartridges you have never used before. I seem to be collecting a lot of cartridges and not using them lately. So here it is to at least try to get some use out of all this "stuff" I have. Or if your Billy "scrap crap." :)
The recipe is Picturesque cartridge, Gypsy font, Winter Woodlands, and Doodletype. I fused all my words together using the gyspy. The only cartridge I used in the machine was picturesque only because I couldn't wait to link it to my gypsy to do that pretty tag. I love that tag.
I glimmer misted the tag and then attached it to some bazzill dot cardstock. The butterfly I "think" is Heidi Swapp, I got in a Cocoa Daisy kit or a Lifetime moments kit. I don't know, it was floating around my work table begging to be used. So I did. I attached some Kaiser pearls and some crystals of unknown origin to it using KI gloo. The little butterfly crystals are from Creative Impressions. The journal tag is from Prima, I inked it to make it match the rest of the layout. I used a fiskar border punch for the small border and the photo mat. I attached the border using xyron and instead of erasing the residue I added glitter. It was different, I don't know if I will do that again, but it was an interesting effect and matched the bling bazzill on the bottom title and the glimmer mist on the picturesque title.
The picture itself was taken Thanksgiving 2009. It was such a sweet time, the little girls had so much fun dancing to the music and "flying." They are all growing up so fast. I am looking forward to seeing them next weekend if not for the why.
Thanks for coming by and checking out my layout! Have a great week!

Ok, so here I am trying to get creative again in Scrapbooking. I have been creating a new me and creating a lot of stuff for school, but now it is time for me to create for ME!!!

I have joined the Cricut Circle and have recieved the coolest cartridge called French Manor. NOT FOR SALE! It has just been brand newly hooked up to my gypsy and is all MINE MINE MINE...mwahahaha!

I have also joined BPS in a class which I haven't done since Hawaii! Seriously! So, it was time! I am hoping to do the Library of Memories if Stacy has that available this year. I truly am looking to jumpstart my creativity as the Southern Scrap Escape was cancelled and totally bummed me out for a couple of months.

I am seriously reorganizing and purging some things that I have had for a long time and really not ever a huge fan of. Tried it and used as much as I'm ever going to use and time for the rest of it to go away. Now, back in the day where I had to have ALL of the papers in a line. I have grown up since then and order what I will use. (unless its on sale!!!) You remember the huge flower paper from Basic Grey, did we ever use it? Nope, I still have every piece in every line...Vagabond, Black Tie, etc. SEI simple sets....well, I'm kind of over them too. I just recently burned myself out on those papers with my Assistants Scrapbook for the school year 2009-2010.
Ok...So, now what am going to CREATE with all this stuff, well...right now I'm hoping to finish my car book and my kitty book. I am having fun with lots of new techniques, I have never tried. But right now it is time for me get back to cleaning and purging!
Back to show you some neat stuff soon!!!
