Friends 'Til Christmas

I joined an awesome swap over on the Cricut Messageboard. It's a partner swap where you are assigned a secret elf who sends you items from your wish list. I have a wisher who I'm "elfing" for and I've got and elf! Well this is my first gift from her and oh my it is gorgeous!!! I am so in love with everything she got me! And upon further investigation of the beautiful ornament...I see that she has long blonde hair...hmm! Who could she be?? Here's some photos of my goodies!!

This is how it was wrapped! So pretty!!!


The ornament that has my little clue on it! I love it, it's my favorite colors! Pink and Green!! *see the blonde hair?* My wheels are turning!! But not too much, I love the element of surprise!!*


The gorgeous faux book! I really do love this, I've never seen one like this before! I can't wait to display it during the holidays! *so sorry about the flash reflection, I took these photos with my phone, I need to charge up my big girl camera!*


It's Sculpey clay and German Glass Glitter! In so many colors!!! I love it all!

Sculpey Clay! Yay!


German Glass Glitter!! It is so fantastically beautiful!! SO many colors!!!


Thank you so much to my elf, whoever you may be! I truly am so happy! And I can't wait to see who you are!!

Page Elements for Two Peas Swap

This is the first time I've done a page elements swap. I thought about it for all of two seconds and I was like yea, I'm in!!! So these are my first attempts!

This is for my County Fair spot:

For my Shabby Vintage:

Boys entry:




Valentine's Day:

I used lots of scraps and lots of little embellishments that I had laying around. Things that I didn't think I'd ever be able to use since I had so little of them. There was life for them!!! I hope you all enjoy them! Off to catch up on some much needed blog updates!!

September Happy Mail

I participate in a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) swap over on the Cricut Message board where you basically get a secret pal for the month and you grant some of her craft related wishes, and your secret pal grants some of yours. It's called Happy Mail! Let me tell you, I had a happy mailbox today!! I'm getting into stamping and coloring with Copics. I don't have any Copics yet, but when I get them, I'm going to be a like a kid in a candy store!! Here are the goodies I got from my pal, Becca!

Some tags for some really neat projects I'm working on

Isn't she cute? This is the Cudle Anya stamp by The Greeting Farm. These are my favorite stamps so far!!

This is the cute tag Becca made for me!

These are the stamped images that Becca stamped for me! From the left: Monday, Cheeky Rockabilly, Camille. Thank you so much!

Can you believe she stamped me some more?! Yay!! From the Left, Top: Eric, Sing, Mermaid Anya. Bottom: Hello Ian, Flirty Anya, Cheeky Glamour

Check this out!! I love Graphic 45. I love Halloween! So when I saw this collection, I had to have it! Thank you so much Becca!
