Short and very Sweet!!!

This week in cake decorating class we all did a little "Clowning Around" Aren't they the cutest little clowns. They were very fun to make and really a lot easier than I imagined them to be. I am taking them with me to scrapbooking tonight and really hope I do not have to bring them back home. My hips just cannot take any more icing. LOL!!!!

I got this in the mail yesterday. What a wonderful treat. Its my new Cricut cartridge that I won from entering into the project spotlight for the newsletter. I never imagined I would actually win. Its really kind of exciting to get something for free. Especially a Cricut something!!!!

On the scrapbooking scene this week, I played around with my prisma pencils and baby oil.

I really like the results, but after doing several cards with it, I still think I like the mineral spirits better. I went back and forth all week trying to decide between the two techniques and what I discovered is that I am way to messy with the baby oil. It really blends well, but I had it all over me, my table and my project. It does not absorb and disappear like the mineral spirits does. If you spill the mineral spirits, it evaporates and no big deal. However, if you spill the baby oil, well you just have one big ole oily spot and a no easy to clean mess.

Well that's it for me. I know this is very short, but I just have been a lazy bum this week and nothing exciting has happened. Sometimes thats not a bad thing. That just means I had a very relaxing week.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!!
