I am hosting a monthly ATC swap on the Cricut MB. We have different themes for each month and some also add an extra challenge. Of course I had to sign up for both of the groups. I finished 3 months of Group ! and I only have July done for Greoup 2

So here is Group1 July--Favorite season
                             Aug---TV Show which has to be Black & white
                             Sept--Day at the Beach

Group 2 July-Pun or Play on words and you must use Junk mail somehow              


Here are a few layouts  I did of Aruba 2011 If you look really close, you can see Venezula in the 1st LO.
 Friendly Iguanas
 DH fooling around while coming down from MT Hooiberg. There are 560 steps to get to the top.
 Having fun at Senor Frog's!!!!! We gave the hats to some young kids on our way back to out timeshare!!!!


Here are some layouts that I did of our trip to Jamaica. We went to Negril and Rick's cafe where we watched the cliff divers. DH jumped off one of the smaller ones but plans on doing it again!!! The sunset was breathtaking!!!

I Can't Believe.....

that I haven't been on my blog is 6 months!!!!!! Wow!!!
Christmas went by and I have been to Jamaica and Aruba since I posted last!!!
I guess I should post a few layouts and cards that I have finished.

I am also in a few swaps on the Cricut message board so I can post a few teasers.
If anyone wants a more detail description on how I made something, please ask and I will be happy to share. Lets try a couple cards first.
This was my first easel card!!! It was basically beige and black with some lace and a fuzzy flower. After looking at it for a bit, I think the colors might have been better for a Sympathy card.

This card was also for a swap and the theme was Summer. I recently bought this cute stamp and wanted to try it with my copics. While it is a little hard to see she did come out pretty well for a "learner"! I used some paper that looked like water, added a strip across the bottom that looked like sand. I used my cricut to cut the palm tree and coconuts. I added some lines on the palm fronds,  popped up "Honey" and added my sentiment.  You will see when I post some ATCs, that I used this card to make one of them. I  printed out the picture of this card and made it into a ATC!!
