Oh Christmas Tree-Cricut Style!

Good morning to you!  
I have a Christmas card to share with you today that uses my Cricut and the Creative Holiday Cards cartridge.  It was published in Northridge's Cricut Magazine last year. 
I cut the Christmas tree and added glossy accents and clear coarse glitter.  I then adhered that to the white panel. The designer paper is from Papertrey Ink.
I popped up the main image using foam tape.  I was able to slip red gingham ribbon behind it and tie a bow.  I added a few distressed jingle bells tied with twine to the center. 
I have been sick all week and my goal this weekend is to try and rest up so I am healthy for the holidays.  Of course "resting" will be done in between the 8,000 loads of laundry and the filthy thing I call a house. ;)
I also have a photo shoot tomorrow of a sweet family for Christmas.  
But then.....I will rest. 
Take out and movies!
Have a great weekend my friends!

Merry Christmas!

Good morning!  I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today! I am sharing a full tutorial on how I created this Christmas card.  It had a few of my favorite things......water colors, Spellbinder's die cuts, (Pierced Circles and snowflakes), glitter, and sequins! (Oh my!)
And as is typical of me these days....a totally nontraditional color palate! 
I hope you are able to sneak over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for a quick peek at my tutorial. 
I have another jam packed day today.....
I have a meeting at my school tonight.  Cort is coming with because both of my boys are working. 
I absolutely have to get to the store for a Christmas party Cortney and I are attending tomorrow.
Nothing like being last minute!
I am realizing I am not as young as I used to be!
Have a great day!!

Density-Will it Float or Sink?

Awhile back, when I was still creating for Northridge Publishing, I was asked to design a page about an everyday event.  What is more "everyday" than homework? 
Cort had to conduct a science experiment about denisty.
She was given a list of objects and asked to make a prediction on whether or not each one would float or sink.
Cortney predicted pretty accurately and really enjoyed doing this experiment. 

I used quite an assortment of Cricut images from different cartridges.  I used From my Kitchen, Cricut Font and Basic Shapes, Mother's Day Bouquet, Tablescapes Winter and Fall, and Teresa Collins Easter Basket.  That's why I love CCR, it makes finding what you are looking for a breeze!
It is another busy, busy week!
I will be heading back to school tonight for my 5th grader's Christmas concert.
It is always fun seeing the kiddos dressed in their prettiest clothes!
We have a couple of Christmas parties this week too....
Have a great day!
I truly appreciate you taking a few moments to pay me a visit!
I know everyone's time is limited at this time of year.
