This week I choose to make cupcakes and I used Just Because Cards and Elmo. The dog and saying are from Just Because Cards and the cupcake wrapper is from Elmo's Party. Go to Thecollectorscut.blogspot.com blog to see other projects from the girls.
I am so sorry to say Emma had to be put down last week. She was truly a special dog. I adopted Emma from Airedale Terrier Rescue and Adoption (ATRA) over 3 years ago when she was 10 years old. Her first family had a son with medical issues. They decided to adopt her out so she could get the attention she deserved. Otto, my airedale I've had since he was 10 weeks old immediately got along with Emma. They were fast friends.
After Emma blew out her knee the Vet said she wasn't able to have surgery. Emma had other medical issues plus her age was against her. It got to the point she couldn't put any weight on her back leg and couldn't get up on her own. Last Tuesday was one of the hardest days I've had. She is in puppy heaven now playing with all her friends.
Thanks to everyone for you prayers and thoughts. I can't tell you how much they are appreciated.
I randomly selected Songbird for this weeks challenge. I used Songbird and Forever Young for the layout.
The layout is for a Cricut Swarm I went to in May 2010 with the Gibbs Girls. The picture is Gayle scrapbooking while the rest of us are busy watching a movie on the big screen and scrapbooking too. The swarm was in Branson Missouri.

This is a birthday album for a friend's daughter. Her birthday was December 23rd, so I used a lot of red and green in the album. Here are a few pictures of it. Taylor loves owls and mushrooms so I included them in her book. I used Forever Young, Celebrate and Cindy Loo on this book.
My next cartridge for The Collector's Cut cricut cartridge challenge is Songbird. We post new projects every week to the blog. http://thecollectorscut.blogspot.com Come check it out.
Danette from the Barnes and Noble Craft Group came over to my house this afternoon to craft. She brought pretzels from Gus's, a St. Louis favorite. We had a lot of fun and she shared embellishing a spoon with me. I love how it turned out. Danette made the Valentine tray I made a few days ago. I loved her version so much I changed mine. LOL I love the scalloped edge and stickles.
I have been looking for directions to make the perfect bow for a long time. I was blog hopping the other day and found a tutorial on The Perfect Bow. The Stampers Camper's Corner has just that. I was so excited. Please go to her blog to see the tutorial. Here are a few examples of my bows using her technique.
It took me a long time to come up with the project. I first started out with a Christmas theme then changed over to Valentines. Must say I really like the final version. I picked up the mini vintage serving trays at Goodwill for 50 cents.
This is going to be my shoebox project for the Barnes and Noble Craft Group on Saturday. I'm really excited to share it with everyone.
This is my first project for The Collector's Cut blog. I used K & Co paper, Bazzill cardstock, Stickles and a heart shape album from Michael's $1 bin, Tim Holtz Rosette Die and I sewed crepe paper Rosettes. The Cricut cartridge I randomly selected was Storybook. I covered the chipboard with the paper and took a craft knife and cut around to get a close around the shape. You can click the image to enlarge the picture.
Please check out The Collector's Cut.blogspot.com for more projects from Kimi, Paula, Tracy and me. We started the blog to challenge ourselves to use our Provo Craft Cricut cartridges more.
I want to share my love of paper crafting. I grew up in a very creative environment. My mother had my sister and I crafting as little kids. My love for it stayed with me as well as fond memories.
I have 2 Airedale Terriers , Otto and Emma. They are like my children. Yes I'm one of those people. LOL
