Rock Sensation

Hello everyone! I am here reporting from LaPorte Indiana at a crop house called Michelle's Memory Loft! This place is amazing! What a hidden gem! I have completed 3 scrapbook layouts since yesterday, and am pretty pleased with the great ideas and feedback coming from the ladies here. Today's post is to show you the first scrapbook page I made using the Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge. My daughter competed in an air guitar contest in 2008. She didnt win, but I sure had fun watching her and the other competitors! Here is the completed layout of that night.

I would love to hear what you think! Please let me know! Thanks! Have a happy Thursday!

Easter Topiary

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Easter! I know I did! It was a very fun filled weekend spent with many of my loved ones! Todays post is to show you the topiaries I made for my mother in laws as an Easter gift. They took me about a month to complete- but it was well worth it in the end. I got ideas from two other blogs. The complete topiary idea is from my friend Colleens blog. And the hibiscus flowers are from this awesome blog!
On with the photos!!!

I am really happy how they turned out- and would love your opinion!! Let me know what you think!

Baby Shower Diaper Cake

Today's post is to show the diaper cake I made for a friends baby shower. It goes with the centerpiece picture I posted yesterday. I know its slightly off kilter- but it is because I had all the diapers in a bag- not in a package. I am really happy with how the diaper cake turned out. I used rubber bands to secure the diapers. Then I took various types of ribbon to decorate the diaper cake. I used a bottle brush to hold the bottom two tiers together. I then added Johnson & Johnson Body Wash to adjoin the top two tiers together.

I used a baby hat and gloves to cover the center where you can see the body wash.

I hand made a headband for the baby. I used a flower I created from one of my daughters old shirts. I then added some stick pins I had in my stash to the bow. Please let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!

Baby Shower Centerpiece

Hello all! I hope you had a great weekend! I wanted to show you what I have been working on, and finally finished! I used my New Arrival cartridge for the first time, and LOVE what I came up with! I hope you like it as much as I do!
I cut the umbrella at 6 inches, feet at 5 1/2 inches, diaper pins at 4 inches, and butterflies at 2 1/2 inches. I then cut them all using the flip function too, so I could adhere them back to back.

I used stickles, SU ribbon, lace, liquid pearls, and SU flat backed pearls to dress up this beauty. I used hot glue to adhere most of the cuts to bamboo skewers and the basket. I used clear stretchy string from Wal-Mart that I bought in the jewelry section, and used that to string the butterflies from the umbrella to make it look like they are flying!

I had a large container of pink prima flowers that I thought matched this centerpiece perfectly. So, I used them to look like they were growing under the umbrella.

Please let me know what you think!

Thanks for looking!
