It's my LUCKY day!!!!

About a week or so ago I had a run of super good luck! I won 2 amazing prizes!!! One was a box of goodies worth over $200 from Glue Arts and Cosmo Cricut. It arrived today and was just STUFFED with gorgeous papers and lots of gluey goodness!

The other was a gorgeous kit from Simply Obsessed that they donated to Bella Blvd and I was lucky enough to win through Bella Blvd's amazing blog. This kit is so gorgeous! I love the papers and how the embellishments work so well and I can't wait to break into this one!

Thanks again to all of the companies involved! I'm one happy scrapper today!!! I will post photos of what I make from all of this scrappy goodness soon....

Ariel Ceiling Fan

For today’s project I created some thing a little different. My 4 year old daughter’s absolute favorite princess is Ariel. Her bedroom is half pink and half purple with Ariel border, bedding and pictures. So when my husband decided her room needed a ceiling fan I knew my Cricut Expression would come in handy…

One of my favorite Cricut cartridges is Dreams Come True. It features Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, and Pocahontas. The Happily Ever After cartridge features Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Mulan.

So I pulled out Dreams Come True and my Cricut Expression as well as some self adhesive vinyl I picked up from Print On It and set to work. My daughter is absolutely thrilled with her new fan and I like that when she changes her mind about her room d├ęcor I can pull the vinyl off of the fan and put new designs on!

Shoe Love!

So today I was pointed in the direction of a GREAT blog called These Are a Few of My Favorite Things. They are giving away 28 prizes, yes, you read right 28 PRIZES for doing a layout about your favorite pair of SHOES! How perfect is that??? I mean, who doesn't love shoes? I do! In fact, I love them so much I couldn't pick just ONE pair! Really that wouldn't be fair to the shoes.... So I did a layout about my 6 favorite pairs, and if my pink Crocs ever show up in the mail I think I will be doing another layout... maybe this will be the start of a shoe book.... hmm... anyway, you can enter this contest too just by clicking HERE!

For this layout I used the Pebbles Twitterpated collection papers that I bought at Scrapbook Chicks Now, these adorable papers sold out BUT there are still some GREAT papers to be found on sale there! Plus you can pre-order the NEW Bo Bunny lines. They are so gorgeous! Back to my page... I used my Cricut cartidge called "All Mixed Up" for the title. "my favorite" is cut at 1" and "ShoeS" is cut at 2" (not I typo, I wanted the 's' in caps). You can find All Mixed Up and other great cartridges at Cutters Creek!

The flowers and I've actually had in my stash for awhile but I love how they look on this layout all layered together!

Well, I think that's it for today! So get creative and enter this fun contest... hey there's plenty of prizes. Let me know if you join in the fun, I'd love a link to your layout!
