>Wacky Wednesday with More Than Favors


For The Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge Please Click HERE.
Welcome Friends,
This week at More Than Favors, The Wacky Wednesday Challenge is to create a project using the colors Red, Orange, Blue, and Green.
Here is what I came up with:
Recipe for Card:
We R Memory Keepers ” Fiesta ” Paper Stack
We R Memory Keepers Tag
Irock Gems

Simple Card, But I thought It would be a good time to pull out the Fiesta Stack. And it was perfect for this challenge. Not to mention that Cinco De Mayo is coming up here shortly.
I hope that you will play along with us this week. So head on over to Paula’s blog by clicking HERE.
Have a Happy Wednesday.

>Howdeeee all!


Well could it really be? Now dont fall down and hurt yourself or anything when you see/read this. Hi there, its Wendi… Meriah’s imaginary friend, complete with a 
caped superhero costume and pixie dust LOL

As my darling BFF mentioned, life has decided I needed a couple more curve balls 
(the 967648494947948.08 werent enough apparently)
so I have been busy and will continue to be pretty busy till June. 
(crossing fingers, toes and eyes)
However, by the grace of our good Lord above, I managed to find some time this last weekend to lose myself in some scrap time and got a couple pages done with pictures I felt hesitant to work with. I learned two things from it… that I still do know how to and love scrapbooking and… time does heal 🙂

Anyhew, heres three for now, all of my boys… both of which I am uber crazy about. 
I have more to post soon so stay tuned 🙂

This first one was a simple challenge I gave myself to get going… I challenged myself to use only stickers on this page. I used Echo Park -“Sweet summertime” and bazzill cardstock. I had to mat the pictures because otherwise they got lost in the blue. Anyhew, quick… rather easy and… DONE! 🙂

My boys last July at the Oregon Coast…
I used all Rusted Sun line for this page… LOVEDUH the surfboard theme… so glad I bought extra of that paper 🙂
And last but not least, my youngest’s birthday party last September…
All of this page was done using Bo Bunny papers (thank you Meriah!) and bazzill cardstock
Usually I do two pagers for birthdays but again, I challenged myself to doing a single page layout… 

Thanks for looking 🙂

>Lets Get Ready for Easter

>Handmade Cards Contest At ProvoCraft


Hello My Crafty Friends,
For the Cartridge Chaos Challenge please click HERE
This week on the Cricut Official facebook page and the Cricut Circle Blog, ProvoCraft is having a Handmade card contest in honor of the new Yudu Cardmaker. Now this is not a machine I am going to run and buy. I do however find the machine very interesting and would not mind experimenting with it.  I made a card following there request:
Create a card using at least one Anna Griffin product (paper, stamps stickers etc.) and one or more of the following Cricut cartridges; Don Juan, Winter Lace (seasonal) and Wall Décor & More (these are the cartridges to be featured on HSN, Jan 20).
Watch HSN on January 20 to see the newest creative tool from Provo Craft (you’ll love it). Two winners will be announced, after each Provo Craft segment, on the Official Cricut Facebook page
Winners will receive the NEW Provo Craft creative tool as well as the NEW Anna Griffin product.
 If you look close, you may see the winners’ cards on the show (wink).
I entered the contest!!!!!
For my card I used Cricut cartridge “Wall Decor & More” and paper from the Anna Griffin “Isabelle Collection” stack.
Inking around the edges of the mushroom, I-Rock Gemz, and a simple but darling sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps “Everyday Greetings” stamp set.
I will be watching HSN that day as Im sure many of us will. Good luck to all the entered, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be chosen, And Scrappy Mom’s Stamps will make its First T.V. Debut!!! Keep your eyes peeled on the display while Jinger tells us all why we need this cardmaker 🙂
Happy Crafting my Friends,
