Pixie Hallow "BEAUTIFUL"

Layout for the "Strut Your Cuts" Challenge over at Scrappy-Go Lucky week 6. This layout is using Tinkerbell and Friends. This picture of my Great-Niece Cadence was taken last year at Epcot's Flower Festival. I've been meaning to get it scrapped BUT I "hate" piecing those little fairies!!! So again this challenge was a good kick in the butt to get a much needed layout done. I LOVE how it came out.

Supplies Used:
Plain Cardstock: Core-dinations
Pattern Paper: The paper with the fairy on it and the pink flower paper is from DCWV "Once Upon A Time" stack the purple swirl is Cloud9 "Pixie Hallow"
Cricut: Disney's Tinkerbell and Friends Cartridge ...Iridessa2 page 60 cut at 3.5"....Silvermist1 page 64 cut at 4"...Beautiful page 56 filigree feature cut at 10" (lenght setting)
Prima Flowers
Signo Gel Pen

Ruffled Baby Dress

A few weeks ago my Mom prints off this crochet pattern and hands it to me. She said why don't you make one like this. I quickly read the pattern and thought that looks a bit hard, I put it aside. Last week we made a Hobby Lobby run, I thought let me get some yarn and try that dress. I think this is now my new favorite crochet pattern! It worked up really easy. This one is for my Best Friends Daughter (my fake Niece Sam's baby girl Sophia.) For those that don't know my "real" Niece Becky is expecting a girl in April and my "fake" Niece Sam  is expecting a girl in March ( actually I've already called it she is going to be born on my birthday). I've already made them each a blanket, a dress, and a few diaper covers. This is where I got the pattern ... Ruffled Baby Dress.

P.S. This is my "fake" baby....

HUGS and KISSES for Cadence

Another layout for the challenge over at "Scrappy-Go-Lucky" Strut Your Cuts where they give you a list of 5 cartridges every week and you have to use only those cartridges for your layout. I've done one every week and it has really been fun. Sometimes VERY challenging because the cartridge I had from the list had no font on them to use for a title but it really made me look at the layout in a different light. It has gotten me to do layouts that have been needing to get done and MOST of all it is getting me to use my cartridges!!!

This week the only one I had from the 5 was Paisley. I've had this cartridge for about a year now and have not made a single cut from it. Whenever I think about that cartridge the image of the nesting dolls come to mind. BUT when I took a look at it this week I was surprised at how many CUTE images there were on it. Two layouts came to mind to do BUT as life happens for me this has not been a good week. My vertigo has been off the charts and no crafting happened. All day yesterday I kept thinking I NEED to get at least one done but I had a migraine that I could not shake. I went to bed early hoping that this morning I could get it done...since the time difference between Florida and Australia I had a little less than 3 hours to get it done then blogged....tick tick tick....

Here it the layout....I still need to journal on it but I wanted to make sure I got it before the deadline...tick tick....
