Super Hero Birthday Layout

This is a layout I created for my son's 4th Power Ranger Birthday Party introduction page. He's 7 now, but I am catching up on birthday's....yeah, I'm far behind to say the least! ****Just so you all know BIRTHDAY is purposely spelt wrong because I spelt it how my son used to pronounce it that way!****

This LO uses the following cricut cartridges:
MS Seasonal Cakes (layered background circles & award layers)
DC Batman (font used for "hero" layers)
Best of 2006 ("birthday")
DC Superman (layered clouds/sun)
Thank you so much for looking!

So What's New Blog Hop!

Thank you for visiting my blog from Becky @
I'm sure you enjoyed what she has shared!  I look forward to everyone playing on our Hop!

This Blog Hop begins with Leah from: This is a 2 day Hop with a group of new bloggers excited to be part of the "Bloglicious" crafting world!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my project! Instructions for this card are below:

First, I got the idea for the card size from one of my favorite blogs; (she has so many terrific ideas).   This card is wonderfully excellent size as it gives you the ability to use up all of those white letter size envelopes we all have sitting around.
Card Size 4 inches width, 9 inches height (4" x 9")
To create this particular card size I cut a piece of black cardstock into 8" x 9" size and folded in half to make it now an 4" x 9".
Next I created a patterned paper layer from last years DCWV Halloween stack.  The layered strip measures 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I also adorned the strip with a strip of purple and black ribbon.
From that point I used black cardstock and my Cricut Expression to create the black spider web embellishment from the new Theresa Collins Chic and Scary cart (web measures 4 1/2").  Then I used the same cartridge to cut the tree embellishment at 3".  I also used the same cart to cut the spider at 1 1/4".  To give the card a little extra I used some of this fake spider web stuff I picked up at a scrapbook expo.  I also used red bling embellishments on the spider and used Queen & Co. pearl accents and finally I used Little Yellow Bicycle "Happy Halloween" Canvas Tag.

Again, thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy! Your next stop today will be:

BLOGIVERSARY CHALLENGE: Monochromatic Color Challenge!

Cricut Circle BLOGIVERSARY Monochromatic Color Challenge

For this challenge I used the "Exclusive Cricut Circle Sophie" Cartridge for the  1/2 circle Doily's, "Give a Hoot" Cartridge for the Leaves and Layered Flower and the "Graphically Speaking" Cartridge for the "remember" title.

This LO acts as the introductary LO from our combined family vacation to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Az and the Polar Express Train in Williams, Az.  This was such a wonderful family vacation with another one of our closest families and I am still working on completing the album for each of my children!

My Lil' Golfer

This is a 2 page LO I created to signify the first time my son used his real golf clubs.  He received these clubs for his 6th birthday from his grandparents and couldn't wait to use them.  I used a variety of carts to create these 2 pages.  The first page of the LO I created from a variety of ideas I had collected in my head, however, I must pay credit where credit is due and page 2 of the LO is completely inspired by one of Kimberly Garofolo's ( 

Page 1 of LO

I used PC "Sports Mania" cartridge for the "Golf Addict".  Clouds are from "April Showers" cartridge, sun is from the "Word Builders - an Ocean of Words".  I used ink to color up the sun and clouds.  The grass and flags was left over Jolee products I had in my stash.

LO Page 2

Here I used the "Varsity Letters" cartridge to create the "Swing" and the "April Showers" cartridge for the cloud.  The poem is a short one I picked up from

Thanks for Looking :)
