New Project Stuff

Here is a pack of 12x24 awesome K&Company paper I picked up from Michaels on Monday. Guess how much it cost!?! $6.99... no joke! They only had 2 packs left, so of course I bought both of them! I love it! I can't wait to make something with it- it's so glossy!

And next is a book wreath I made using part of one of the husband's old police books. The pages were pretty big; next time I'll cut them first (or use smaller pages)! Not bad for a first try, I think!

The next project was a card I made using a new stamp I got for a dollar. I also got a chance to use my new Botanicals and Hannah Montana cartridges. Yay! I think it's cute. I used a water color pen thing to color the paper blue, and have a matching cut-out on the inside. I also got a chance to play with the pearls I got (also on sale at Michaels!)

And for my most proud project I've completed in the past few days... a layout using pictures from our Bermuda (2008) vacation.

I think it's absolutely beautiful! I scraplifted the design from someone on the Cricut messageboard, but of course added my own spin to it. Here's a closer look.

It looks SO much better in real life. I've got little golden gems hidden in the coral, and the treasure chest is filled with gems and pearls. I used pop-dots to make the layout 3-Dish, as well. I didn't have a 6x4 picture of the husband, so I used what I did have along with pictures of little fish he spent the day taking pictures of. I think it turned out really well. Now if only I could spend so much time working on each page... maybe I'll eventually get finished!

And that's all for now. It's not all I've done since my last post, but it's enough to share for now. I've got a couple other things in the works :-).
