Speaking of scrapbooking. Well my mind has been mostly on my Annie's, so no scrapbooking this week. However, I did manage to make a card so that my CosmoBella had a home.
Its not exactly what I had planned, but sometimes I have no control of my creative side. It just takes over like Jekyll and Hyde. Its very simple and I guess sometimes that is just ok. I really wanted to stamp her on a Scalloped Oval circle rather than a plain Oval circle, but to my disappointment, I do not have that cartridge on my Cricut. I am sure there is one out there, but I do not own it if there is. So I decided to go with this Oval circle and add the ribbon slots on the side. I thought that was pretty cool. I truly do love my Cricut, however it stinks when you have limitations of not owning the right Cartridge. That is where I can see the advantages of having a Wishblade. Maybe some day Cricut will allow you to have the freedom to cut whatever your hearts desire, just like Wishblade. Anyway, its my first Bella and I am sure I will make lots and lots more and get more creative as I go.
What else have I been doing. Last week we started redecorating my DD's bedroom. She wanted the bright colors of lime green, orange and pink. So we painted the walls and now we are waiting for border and bedding to arrive from UPS. While I have been waiting to finish her room, I decided to do a few embellishments for her room. I found these cute little DIVA'S below at JoAnn's. They were in the dollar section. They were just plain wood and I used my prisma pencils, mineral spirits and stickles to "Doll" them up. What a fun project this was. It was like playing paperdolls. I had the best time coloring and glittering them. Not sure yet what we are going to do with them, but I am sure whatever we decide, they will look fabulous. I will post a picture of her room later when we get done. Its a masterpiece in progress. LOL!!!!
Here is a picture of some of the swap cards I received from my COTC group. We always have the best time making cards and swapping. I have so many awesome cards from these ladies. So much talent. Well I better run. Hubby is waiting for me to get done with this, so I can watch a movie with him. So everyone have a great and blessed week.
