I'm late, I'm late...

Here is the belated birthday card I made for my niece. This is the first time I have used the Disney Classics cartridge. I made the image 3 7/8" and had to re-cut a few pieces because my Cricut tore them. All the little pieces are a pain but they sure make for a cute image. ( I realized after I photographed the card that I had forgotten the button on rabbit's vest so I added a dark red rhinestone.)

Recycled Box & Prom Corsage

Last weekend was Prom for my son and I wanted to make something for his girlfriend that she could keep. So instead of a corsage (that costs and arm and a leg nowadays) I opted to make her a corsage/bracelet.

This is what I came up with:
I got glass beads and a silk flower from Joann's. I made a 3 strand pearl bracelet and then attached the flower   over the strand connector. I then added a pearl to the center of the flower to pull it together. I think it turned out great and it is something she can wear again and keep forever.

I then found a box to put the bracelet in. 

Decorated it all up with scrap paper, ribbon and a flower cut from Flower Shoppe.
 (I had to blow the dust off the 'ole Cricut.) 

Perfect fit!!

His girlfriend loved it and I received several compliments on it. :)

And finally, the gorgeous couple...

New Year

I just want to apologize to my followers for being so behind on my blog. My New Year has started off so crazy, I haven't had anytime to craft. We have had some lingering illness going through my house (I am finally feeling better after having it for 5 weeks and being on meds), had family visiting over the holiday break, then back to school and into the basketball season. Between coaching Jr High girls and my son's HS games we have 4 BB games this week and 3 BB games this week. Any free time I have had has been spent on trying to get caught up on my housework. That is a never ending battle.

So please bear with me during this crazy time. I am still popping in to visit some of my favorite blogs when I have a second.

I have decided to try to do a monthly SWAP in 2012. I want to do one SWAP a month so the turn over will be quick. Check out the tab at the top of my page 2012 monthly SWAP for details. Hope to see you all there!!
