Exciting News!!!

Before I share my project today with you, I've been bursting at the seams to share some exciting news! I have been selected to be a part of Northridge Publishing's Cricut Magazine Design Team! I am literally over the moon about it! It is so exciting to work with such talented ladies! It is always such a thrill to see my projects in print! So thank you so much for letting me share this news with you! : D


My project today is created from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cartridge. It is the sunflower image that was cut at 5". I added Flower Soft to the center for added texture. I added a bit of ribbon, stick pins, and a tag cut from the Sentimental's cartridge. I am not sure what little items I am going to put in the box.....but I am sure I will think of something! ; )
I love the look of the black Flower Soft!



I am still fighting a bad cold, which the doctor says is just viral. Unfortunately, my asthma is acting up because of it. So right now I have a very "sexy" raspy voice and a hacking cough.....but it isn't stopping me from going on a scrapbook weekend in Wisconsin with my girlfriends.



Thank you again for letting me share a bit of my life with you!


Have a great weekend!!!!

Congratulations! I've visited tons of cricut blogs and your's is far and away the best! You really design using your cuts as an element - instead of using the cut just as it comes out of the machine. Cricut is lucky to have you on their team - you really raise the design bar!
