I am bummed that I have not been able to do much scrapping since I had surgery on my right hand. However, I have some pics for inspiration.

Cricut Expressions

I got this machine at Christmas. It has the ability to cut 24 inches. Yesterday I finally got it out and started playing with it. I know, I know six months later but I have been busy with other projects. Anyway, I only had two cartridges - Indie and school - but they were enough to keep me cutting for a couple hours. I got out some old patterned paper from a kit I had bought and got to playing.
Don't you just love the skull. David said the following when I showed it to him, "Crop or die". I thought that was pretty funny. So I then cut letters out and put them with the skull on a 12x12 sheet of black paper. I am going to hang it in my scrap area. David mentioned that there is a store where you can make your own t-shirts and totes with an image. We just might have to do that!!
I think the butterfly is way cute too. It is about 8 inches so pretty tall. Once I got to playing I found the possibilities to be endless. Brackets, scallop borders and more to be cut. Now I must say that I still love my Quickutz. But when I want something really big or different, the machine will be the way to go.

Great quote

I saw this quote on a blog I follow and wanted to put here. I totally will use this one day!

Mother is not a person to lean on, but the person who makes leaning unnecessary.

Career Day

So last week, Ashleigh's school let them dress up to show what they wanted to be when they grew up. The night before, Ashleigh said she wanted to be a princess when she grows up. Her daddy and I said that being a princess was not really a career. She promptly told us that yes, she would grow up and be a princess at Disney World. I just had to laugh.
