Cooking with the Cricut- baking challange

Cooking with the Cricut is having a Baking Challange at http://cookingwithcricut.blogspot.com/
This was the perfect opportunity for me to scrap some of my favorite cake pictures.  These are three wedding cakes I have made.  Love how they look here.  Thanks for looking.

Emma's Throwback Thursday 11/18

When I saw Emma's Challange for a non cricut item, thought this was perfect for my first challange here.  I love my cricut, but needed to make a card for a friend.  So this was perfect timing, for my Mistletoe card.  This digi image is from Kenny K.  I bought 2 of his MRS, images, these are the tame ones.   Love his images, some of them a little more adult than others.  This was fun to practice some more with my copics, but man cutting out was time consuming.  Also used a stamp from clear stamps and paper is from DCWV. Thanks Emma for the Challange and look forward to entering more.  May have more time since she is going to every other week.  

Circle Weekly Challange # 8

OK, I only just started scrapbooking, but this has to be my favorite layout ever.   I made this off of the sketch provided by the Cricut Circle Weekly Challange.  Also needed to have vintage feel.  It needed at least 3 elements that said vintage and 2 cricut cuts.   I used my French Manor Cartridge for the cut outs, and used lace, pearls, metal embelishments.  I am not sure bling is part of vintage, but my dtr is all about BLING.  So it just added so  much. My dtr wants to go to Paris one day, so this is so perfect for her.  Thanks for looking. 
I am really feeling the mojo this weekend.  Can't wait to show you all the mini album about my sailor son, I am doing for his grandmother.  It is so much fun.

November Circle Challange

OK, I had an idea for some Presents for family.  I thought I took a picture of both, but accidently deleted.  I already mailed my MIL, but have the version for my SIL.  (Hope she doesn't see this!)  I tweeked a little so I could make for the Circle Challange also.  I used Butterflies from Hannah Montana, and Font is from Storybook (I think).  I cuttlebugged the letters for a little texture.  I used some roses from I am Roses.  You can't tell well, but the leaf that is under the roses is felt.  I could not get this to cut on my cicut, so I cut with paper in the cricut first then used as a template for my felt.    I lvoed this paper all glittery.  I mod podged on to a canvase frame and hung a picture hanger on it.  This has a small mini album on it of 5x 7 photos of my family (while my son was home on leave this summer).  Glad I could participate this month, it was lots of fun and 2 presents out of the way.

cooking with cricket entry

Well I wanted to enter into this challange and could not figure out how.  Found some old pictures and my dtr and I both made layouts.  So here is my layout of my son Alex.  He was so cute back then, and knew how to smile. Used Stretch your Imagination and Joy to the Seasons for my cricut cuts.  Some paper from DCWV.  I have never done scrapbooking before so I am learning all kinds of new stuff around here.  Thanks for looking.
