No new pictures to post at this time but I have been playing with some vinyl and decorating my E with it. Lol. It is now sporting a chocolate bunny and a pink and blue hippo to keep the giraffe comapany. As soon as I get the 2 rolls of transfer tape from my vinyl supplier- It's a Vinyl Thing- then I will get to work on cutting out the circles that a friend is going to use to decorate her daughters room. I will post photos of that project once it's complete.
I am going scrapbooking this saturday and looking forward to it. Out of our group of monthly scrappers only myself and my friend K will be attending from the sounds of it. Everyone else is to busy so her and I will have the hall all to ourselves! Ahhhh, the sweet sounds of no children present for a few hours. Lol. I do love my once a month mommy break.
We are taking a break next month for our group and then in August I am hosting a 3 day camp and crop at the hall and we are looking forward to that!
I will post some new photos soon and look forward to more blog hopping. Thanks for stopping by!

So today is Hello Thursday and the official launch of the 24 new Lite carts from PC available exclusivly to Wal-Mart. Now on PC's website it says that the carts won't be available until July 1st. I spoke to the dept manager at my local wally world and she hasn't heard anything yet about new carts....BUT...she did say that they are very close to getting rid of the last of their fabric supply and it will strictly be a crafting section. So she isn't surprised PC has created a Wal-Mart only line of carts. So never fear canucks, we will have access to the carts through our stores, just not sure when. She did say that the carts they have in stock are currently on roll back for $67-$69 right now. Might be a good time to go take a look. I am going to attempt to post a bunch of pics of some of the new Lite carts. Enjoy! Which ones will YOU be getting?!?!

The other project that I worked last night was cutting out some bugs for my youngest son Ty's pre-K class. They are working on insects for the last few weeks of school. I used the stretch your imagination cart and the create a critter cart. I cut them out between 1 and 1.5 inch sizes, in different shades of cardstock from stamping up and CM.
So the kids can grab some bugs and get crafty! Lol

Good morning friends,
so I had an itch to be creative last night. I decided that I wanted to try to make the giraffe from the Create a Critter cart in vinyl. I have a friend with a young daughter who has been carting around a stuffed giraffe that she named Fluff for the last 3 yrs or so.
I used 3 different colours of vinyl, golden yellow, light brown and dark brown. I cut the first one out at the 3 inch size with all of the settings, blade depth, pressure and speed set at 2.
The second giraffe was cut out in a 6 inch size. As you can see from the photos, they are not perfect but pretty good for a first attempt at layering vinyl. I am going to check youtube and see if there are any videos on how to to it right. It's a little tricky doing it by hand but I love how cute they are.
I put the lil guy on the back of my expression so he will always be a little bit of inspiration for me.

Well I think I am slowly getting this blog thing figured out. Now if I can attach some photos of work I have done then it will be all good. Lol.
If this worked, then it should be a pic of the first page I did using my Create a Critter cart. The barn goes with the cow image and I have to say that I LOVE this cart!
Well, I guess I just created my own blog. Lol. So since I have no idea how this works it is going to be a learning process. If you are reading this please have some paticence with me until I get this figured out!
For those of you who know me, you know how much I love to scrapbook and even dable in card making! I have lots af amazing girl friends who scrap with me and THEY make the most amazing cards and layouts.
I started scrapbooking over 10 years ago when Creative Memories was introduced to me and I fell in love with it.... and so it began!
I'm hoping to figure out how to upload photos so that I can post pics of some of the stuff I have done and also stuff that my friends have done if they let me! Lol
any suggestions would be welcome and helpful!

Happy scrappin!
