Challenge Me Monday: Mother's Day

This week at Fantabulous Cricut the challenge was to make a project for our Mother using her favorite color. I made a tag using one of the fun Mother's Day CCR Exclusives and the tag feature on Gypsy Wanderings.

My Moms favorite color is blue.  I attached the tag to her Mother's Day gift, a hanging basket for her deck.
Happy Mother's day to all the Mom's out there.  Take care.

NSD Crop CCR Challenge

Here is a layout I made for one of the National Scrapbooking Day Challenges on the Cricut Circle Blog.  The Challenge was to make a project using only CCR exclusives or Cricut Craftroom basics.  I made this fun layout Using The Playground Equipment CCR Exclusive and the font on CCR basics.  You may have noticed the O,U and N are a little crooked looking.  lol They are just for show,  I won't be gluing them until i add the pictures.  Hope you like it.


Banner Year

Hello everyone.  This month the challenge for the Cricut Circle magazine was to make a banner.    With my daughter's 2nd birthday coming up I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and made the banner a little ahead of schedule.  Here is what I came up with.

I decided to use CCR and my new mini for the bulk of this project.  The banner is from the Princess Party cartridge.  I purchased this cartridge in digital format a few weeks ago when it was on sale at, a great investment.  Until the gypsy linking feature is up and running I have a very limited cartridge selection  with CCR and I am far to lazy to actually plug the cartridges into my gypsy.  lol.  I know its sad.   The font is the outline feature from Cricut Font and Basic shapes, which came with my mini.  Love it.  I cheated to make the minnie head welding and stretching circles.  The bows were cut using Mickey and Friends a while back.  I had extra left over from when I made the invitations.  Hope you enjoyed my post.

Center of Attention

I am so proud of myself this is the first circle challenge I have actually got a project ready in time to enter.  For this challenge we were to create a center piece and use at least 2 Cricut cuts. Here is my entry.

For my daughters 2nd birthday in June I have decide to have a Minnie Mouse theme as she is obsessed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  I am not sure what the actual count on the flowers came to, I just kept saying anther mat full should do it.  I would say about a bajillion.  lol  The flowers and ears were cut from CTMH:Art Philosophy.   I may replace the bow with a larger one made from some wired ribon if I find some I like in my travels before June.  Hope you like it
