EAD Design's Monday Hop!

Hi,
Happy Monday and Happy EAD Designs Monday Hop!  I just love to start the week out with a quick hop!  You should have arrived here from the amazing Lauren, if not why don't you head over to EAD Designs for the start!  I decided to make a layout for Disneyland pictures.  I know this layout doesn't seem like Disneyland, but really it does make sense if you've been there during Halloween ~ Christmas!  Well, I would have added my pictures, but I couldn't find them, so they'll have to wait, but I couldn't wait to post it!

sorry for the bad lighting, this is after photo shop! oops!
recipe:
Happy Haunting Cricut Cartridge
tombstones cut 2.58 x 3.35
letters cut 1.00
Lacy Labels
large mat cut 6.67 x 4.80
circle cut 8.48 x 8.18

Thank you to Court for being our guest designer this month!  And it's officially my first full month on the EAD design team, and I've enjoyed every minute of it!

Enjoy your day!

whoo hoo it's friday! erin lee paper and Scrappy Moms Stamps!

Hello!

I just have a quick post before I head out to work!  They say it might snow in the Bay Area, the last time it snowed where I live was in 1988.  Right now it's just pouring rain, so I'm not sure if we will actually get any snow.  Though it would be fun if we did! 

Anyway, yesterday my erin lee creative paper arrived.  Even thought I had an exhausting day, I had to make something with it.  Looking at it this morning, I realize I should have added another layer of color between the kraft and the white.  But I still think it's cute and it fit with the day I had yesterday!




Yes, he's on a wobble!

EAD Designs Steal of Month Project!

Hi!

Yea, it's Thursday, which means it's almost Friday!  I told you earlier this week that I was going to do vinyl on the stucco of my house.  Well, I chickened out...I didn't want to ruin the sign if it didn't work out.  So I bought a frame at Walmart.  I hope you like my project...
Before
 After
I love the way the wall shows through.  When I took out the back of the frame, I pushed the metal tabs in towards the glass to hold it in.  I added the vinyl to the front of the glass.  I have to admit that attaching vinyl to glass is a little tricky.  Once it touches it's there for good.  Walls are more forgiving than glass, but don't let that scare you away!

Scrappy Moms Stamps Sneak Peek ~ Furry Friends! Day 2!

Hi!

Welcome back for day 2 of the Scrappy Moms Stamps ~Furry Friends Sneak Peak!  Oh my goodness I just love this card, it reminds of being a little girl, when my parents would go to Mexico, by themselves.  I couldn't wait for them to get home.  Not just because I missed them, but also because they would always bring me home some cool trinket!  One year I remember getting huge, bright colored crepe paper flowers.  I thought they were just beautiful!  I remember keeping them well into my teens.  Looking back I know those flowers were very inexpensive and it must have been very challenging for my mom to get 5 or 6 of those huge flowers on a plane without crushing any of them!

Now onto my card...
can you see that I put him on a action wobble?

Recipe:

Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge
cow cut 2.75 x 3.71

Lacy Labels Cricut Cartridge
sign cut 1.74 x .79 and 1.80x .79

Prima Flowers
Flock ~ on his head
