July Creative Xpress assignments

My Creative Xpress DT assignments this month was to create two projects that used the Cricut cartridge "Dreams come true". I decided to make one layout and two cards with it.

My first thoughts on it were I would make a layout about Bella and her Disney Princess barbies (which she just loves lol). Well when I got the cartridge in the mail, I took a look at all the die cuts you could cut with it and thought, WOW! there really is alot of different things on this cart. I had just got back some summer pictures of the kids swimming at my MIL's. The idea of soing a BOY layout with a cart mainly geared towards "girls" would be perfect! I had all these awesome ideas floating around in my head. I also had just gotten the Basic Grey collection pack of Marrakech and all the goodies that went with it (that you can also find at the CX store) and though the colors in the line would be perfect with the picture of Aidan in the water and for what I wanted to do with the Cricut cartridge. So I got to work on this assignment and came up with this. And these super sweet cards using the Basic Grey Wisteria collection pack, also found in our store. Now again with the first card, I picked a die cut image of the cake from the Disney cart and made it a totally different theme. So you don;t have to stick with the girlie, Princess theme when you buy this cart, there is so much more on it.

I am now hooked to these Cricut "cartoon" type cartridges and NEED them all lol. They are seriously so much fun to work with, and can add so much more flair to your projects, layouts, cards, etc.

Thanks for looking! :)

LRS July DT designs, Bo Bunny

WOW, July sure went by fast, I can not believe it will be August in a week! I can not believe that I have a child turning 6 in 3 1/2 days. Yep Aidan will be 6 this coming week. My baby boy is growing up!

Our LRS kit this month is Bo Bunny Calypso. This was a fun kit to work with this month. The colors in the papers are so bright and just perfect for summer, or just about any theme really. Here are my DT designs and a little extra project...

Wannabe...

Soooooo, Just last week I was blog hopping and realized I had missed about a weeks worth of peeks on the AC blog. As I was looking through all the new Summer CHA goodies, I came across this...

I can't believe it's already that time again. I thought long and hard about re-trying out for this, if I did, it would be my third year. I decided to give it another try, you never know unless you try right? So this is my entry...

I am so nervous about putting myself out there for this again, but like I said, I will never know unless I try. So there you have it, now the wait is on :) In the mean time I will leave you with one more AC goodie of mine from last year, one of my CX assignments :)
