Just in time for 2011!

I'm baaacccckkk. Well, I'm going to try my hardest to post more! Everything is just so crazy and on top of it I'm sick! Bleh!
Well anyway I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday and I hope santa brought you lots of crafty things :] I must have been really good to get my imagine :] I have had a chance to play with it a little bit and it is AWESOME! BUT I do kind of feel like I am abandoning my pink cricut LOL! weird huh?! Well here is a pic of her...

She is HUGE!!! I really wasn't expecting her to be that big! O yea and on top of her is my new zhu zhu pet stinker.. he looks exactly like our dog who's name is stink :] I am officially obsessed with Zhu Zhu pets

So my boyfriend spilled the beans about where he got the imagine and he got her off of HSN soo it came with two extra cartridges! Woo Hoo! Here they are

So here are some cards I made today. It was so quick to make them and I know I am just gonna love her when I make a cut with several layers! O and I also purchased some Bazzill white cardstock so I am excited to use that!

So simple and only using white paper! Love that!!! Next I need to play around with my new video camera! Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Hope everyone is having a great one! My boyfriend and I exchanged gifts tonight since we will be busy with family tomorrow and look what I got......

Sorry for the quality it was taken with my phone which has no flash
I'm so excited to play!!!!

Well just wanted to share! Hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas and enjoy the time with you family and friends! Life sometimes gets the best of us and sometimes we just need to slow down and appreciate the smaller things in life. I'm so grateful to have a wonderful family, an amazing boyfriend and great friends! I'm also so grateful for all of you! So although the holidays can be stressful please take a moment to relax and enjoy life :]

Hey all!

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday! Mine has been jam packed. Between finishing cakes, delivering cakes, having to run to Michaels right when they open for something I needed, finishing wrapping gifts, going to the bank and getting to the post office to send gifts right before they closed! Its been a very crazy day! Anyway, I wanted to share my projects with you that I told you about.
Well first I decided late Thursday night I wanted to make my instructors from my training class and little gift just to say thanks for all of their patience and help! They were so awesome!

The box was made using TBBM and the tree was made using different sized triangles, a hole puncher and a ric-rak cut from plantin. I think they came out super cute and they loved them!!

Next I had a strawberry shortcake cake..

I really liked how this came out but I wish I would have been able to find a strawberry shortcake candle for the top. (one of the things I went to Michaels and Party City for first thing in the AM :[ )

annnnd here is the minnie mouse inspired cake :]

Hope you enjoyed! Hopefully Ill be able to get some layouts done tomorrow!

Happy Sunday

Its 10pm here in Vegas and just wanted to do a little status update. I started my Christmas cards tonight and hopefully I will have some time tomorrow and finish em up. I want to get them out soon! Usually I send em out a week before and everyone gets them right before the holiday, it would be nice if they got there early :]
Anywaaayy, so we've have a crazy weekend! Thursday night we noticed one of our dogs was having some issues with his right eye. He is a pug so his eyes are already kinda buggy and he has had issues with it before but has pretty much always been blind in that eye. We took him to the vet Friday night and she advised us he had a ulcer in his eye and referred us to a doggie optomologist. Went to the optomologist Saturday and he gave us a bunch of meds and drops to give him every 4 hours. We were up all night long given him the drops and had to wait 5 mins between each one so it took about 45 mins each time. Sunday his eye was lookin better and then at about 2pm we were giving him his drops and all of the sudden something popped and he started crying. The optomologist advised us that it is possible his ulcer could burst and that is basically what happened. We rushed him to the vet and the only option was to remove the eye :[ So our poor pup had to stay over night and we get to pick him back up tomorrow. We miss him lots and cant wait to get him tomorrow! We don't have children yet so these are our kids. Here is a pic of him!
