Another Creative Xpress Project

This is my second Creative Xpress project. This layout features the Tinkerbell and Friends Cricut cartridge and the felt spotted Doodlebug papers "La-di-dots". I just loved working with this paper. And with the Design Studio software I made my own scallopped edged paper.

This layout is of Charlotte's first birthday party. Don't you just love when they dig into the cake.

Thanks for looking!

Guess, where I have been?




Yes, my baby ended up in the hospital! She had been sick for almost a week and a half and felt so bad that she would not eat or drink. So she ended up in the hospital for dehydration. We only spent 24 hours there, but it was a long 24 hours. I was glad when the doctor said "I feel comfortable sending you home".
I mean really...I am a pediatric intensive care unit nurse. How did I let this happen? I tell ya', I think nurses either over react or under react when it comes to their families. I am so used to seeing extremely critical ill children that I did not think mine was that sick. I knew something needed to be done when my husband told me (while I was at work), "I changed 5 diapers on her today, but none were really wet". And combined with the fact that she is not eating or drinking I knew she was getting dehydrated. I called the doctor the next afternoon and told her that I could not get Charlotte to eat or drink and that she was not wetting diapers.
After some blood work in the doctor's office, she sent us to the emergency room to get IV fluids. Needless-to-say we ended up being admitted to the pediatric unit overnight.
I have to say, Charlotte did better than I thought she would. I had to chase her around the room with the IV pole though.
I am happy to report now, that she is back 100% and ready to go. Whew, let's just hope the next week is better.........

Fairy Fantasy Purse....


No longer a sneak peek, but a real one. Here is one of my first projects that I made for CreativeXpress. They are so awesome to work for. Anyway, I have altered an oval chipboard purse with the beautiful "La-di-dots" felt spotted papers from Doodlebug. I also cut the accents from the Serenade glittered spotted papers from Doodlebug. The cartridge that I used is the newly released Tinkerbell and Friends Cricut cartridge. I can see alot of these "girly" projects in my future. Having a girl is turning out to be a much different experience than boys. I love it! Enjoy the purse.

Click on the title to see more details photos of the purse.
And if you would like the tutorial, just ask and I will send it to you.
More coming soon.......
