Paper Cutz Challenge #107

"Zoo Times Two"! Create a card, layout, or papercraft using at least 2 Cricut cut or stamped images of zoo animals. Add some dimension or bling and use any colors or occasion you'd like."
I made a little Halloween bag for my daughter to fill with goodies to give to her teacher. I know that bats aren't typically your cute and fuzzy animal at the zoo, but I love bats!!! The witch was made in Cricut Craftroom. It is my first project and I think I did a pretty good job in sizing the pieces which was sort of hard to do. I used my new favorite cartridge that I got at Michael's yesterday for $19. I love Mini Monsters!!!

Lookie, Lookie

I went to Michael's this morning looking for clear stamps and couldn't resist going into the isle where the Cricut stuff is and look what I found for $44.99...I couldn't believe it. I have been wanting one for a while but couldn't really afford to order one and pay for shipping too. I am so excited!!! Mr. Nosey, otherwise known as Farley, just had to check out what I was doing, so he got in the shot..LOL

More fun at Myrtle Beach, SC

We are having a blast in our new town. We love going to the beach and just hanging out. The water is so warm already. I wonder what it will be like in July and August! We have started moving things into our new house but haven't had the official closing yet. It keeps getting postponed for one reason or another. Hopefully tomorrow. Hope I didn't just jinx myself again!! Here are a few pics I have taken over the past couple of weeks.

We are moving!!!

We are moving to South Carolina from Massachusetts tomorrow!!! My Cricut has been packed away for about a week now and I miss it so much. We will be staying at a hotel/motel for a while so I won't be able to use my Cricut then either. I'm so sad.  :( I will be posting pictures of sunny Myrtle Beach soon!!!!!

Here is my entry for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #64. You have to make a bookmark using a Cricut Cartridge and any color. I used "Just Because" Cards and cut my bookmark at 6". It probably could be cut at 7" but I'm going to give it to my daughter and it's the perfect size for her.

Cards for my nieces

I made some cards to send to my nieces. They have pet rats so I used the mouse in Create a Critter to portray the rat. I flipped one of them.

I love taking pictures of my kids and animals just as much as I love to paper craft.
