Very Hoppy Easter

Just stopping by to show you pics of the Easter bags I made for my two beautiful grandsons...

Here's a closer look...shapes are all from the CCR Basic shapes 
and the carrot is from Create a Critter cartridge. I added some waxed twine for the whiskers and used my white gel pen on the eyes...
 I made the carrots from Teresa Collins' Bunny and Chicks digital cartridge...
They were very easy to put together...I added yellow grass and some candy and just closed them shut with curling ribbon...These were for my kids...ages range from 14 to need for baskets for them...they just want the candy!

Well this is all for now..hope you had a wonderful Easter...I sure did! Thanks for stopping by!

Sending you crafting wishes,

Cropping Weekend

Hello my crafty friends, it's been a while since I've posted anything ...keeping myself busy with different projects...
Recently, I had the pleasure of participating in my first cropping weekend.  I had a great time...joined a great group of women, which included two of my cousins.  We stayed at the Hudson Valley Resort..the weather was great the entire weekend...There was inspiration everywhere I turned...While I took lots of things with me, I didn't get much accomplished...especially because I didn't take any pictures with me...I didn't do much the first night, brainstormed a little because I had promised my daughter that I would work on baby shower invites....even though I was surrounded by many beautiful layouts, ideas were slow to come but eventually I did get one and started to cut all my pieces with the two cricut machines that were available to us...Aside from this, there were 3 make and takes that I completed but I haven't photographed them yet...those will come soon...

Here's a picture of the giraffes I cut, the theme is jungle..I didn't take any pics of the final invite but my daughter did send me a picture taken with her cell phone..

I created these with create a critter cartridge, 25 in total...I'll be making a banner and a few more things soon...

Well this is all for now...thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Easter!
