Happy Sunday everyone!!

Well, I have certainly been super busy this past week!  Baby shower, birthdays, work, and trying to get ready for the upcoming holidays.  The cleaning alone would send me running out of the house to try to catch a great sale at Michaels or AC Moore LOL!  I tried to get inspired last night-working on some Thanksgiving cards which I am never late on creating but this year I am behind the 8 ball!  It took me a few hours just to get the creative juices flowing but eventually I came up with some really cute and simple cards for friends and family.  I will post some pics later today.  I also have a super surprise for this upcoming keep checking back and stay tuned!  Now it is off to one of the largest craft fairs in town!!!

Happy Sunday everyone!! I'm off to a baby shower today :)

Hello everyone!  I have been working over the last week getting ready for my nieces' baby shower.  I was cranking out images with my Expression and Imagine and loving every moment of it!!  I want to share with you a few things that I created using both machines.  Enjoy!!!!
I made 60 of this goodie bags!  Wheww....I love this little monkey :)  I used Peachy Keen Stamps to stamp his face and My Pink Stamper stamps for the phrase "Bananas 4 you".  I wrapped up some Hershey nugget candies for a sweet treat. 

I used my Imagine to print the flag banner and it made making this project so fast and easy!!  I used the JT Cricut Imagine cartridge for the banner and  Create a Critter cartridge for the critters!

I used the Blast Off Imagine cartridge for the letters.

I had a lot of fun making the diaper cake.  I used the JT cartridge to print my patterned paper and Create a Critter for the adorable animals.  My friend Karen helped me assemble the diapers and she made the beautiful bows!! 

More pictures of today's baby shower to come!!!  Have a wonderful Sunday everyone :)
