Good morning!  I have had such a busy, busy week and didn't want you to think I had fallen off the face of the Earth! ;)  I am popping in for a quick post before I head off to school.  
Last year, when I was still creating for Northridge Magazine, my assignment was to create a Halloween onesie. So I used my Cricut and orange and black felt.
I hand stitched the orange circle onto the black felt.  I cut around it with fabric scalloped scissors.  Which is why my scallops are a bit wonky.
I stitched the letters with white thread so they would stand out a bit more. I added a little bit of lace to help "ground" the letters and some googly eyes. (adhered with fabric glue) I am finally handing this little cutie to a friend of mine who's baby girl is celebrating her first Halloween. :)
Today is 60's day at I've got my A-line skirt, Mary Janes, and headband all ready to go. 
Then tonight I have a Halloween dance at my school.
So busy, busy! 
Have a great day friends!

J'Adore Paris

Okay, I have to admit, I've never actually been to Paris.  But it is definitely on my bucket list of things to do!
 I designed this card awhile back using Cricut's France Digital set.   I love the little wine bottle, cheese, and French bread. They were begging to be glittered!
I used the shadow cut to cut the black paper.  I think it makes the title pop a bit! I added a bit of twine and a few pearls as a finishing touch. 
It is a totally nutty week in my house! Kyle is spending an overnight at the college he wants to attend next fall.  *sniff sniff,* Cort starts cheerleading tonight, my school is hosting a Halloween party on Thursday, and of course Friday is Halloween.  And on top of all of that, I am seeing the Dancing With the Stars show on Sunday! 
Lots of good stuff heading our way. :)
Have a great day my friends!!
