And the winner is...........

Through a random number generated by, post #21 was picked and it was from Jana!! Congrats! Send me your info and I will mail it out on Thursday!

Sorry that this was a little late being picked. I spent the weekend in the ER with an infection in my abdomen, not very fun. Now since I am able to get up and move around, hopefully I will finish the Disney autograph album and post a couple of pictures of what I have been working on lateley. Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my blod, and thanks to all of you who come back to see all the things that I love to do! Happy crafting!

Summer Fun Layout

What happens when you take your Cricut machine and all of your cartridges to a crop and realize after you get there, that you forgot your mats? Well, this layout is a result of a crop-gone-bad at my church. I forgot my mats, my acrylic stamp blocks, and my ever essential white Uni-ball pen. Yes, most of the ladies there offered to help me out and I could have drove the five minutes to my house to pick it all up. But I after I realized that I forgot all my stuff, I challenge myself to make do with what I had on hand. I had white American Craft alphabet stickers, orange stickles, and left over scraps. I backed the white stickers on solid parts of the We Are Memory Keepers White Out collection, then fussy cut around the letters. I hand cut the sun behind the letter U. Then, I accented the letters with dots of orange Stickles. So even though it's not what I would have done if I was at home with all of my stuff, I like the way this one turned out. Maybe next time, I will leave my Cricut turned off and see what else I can come up with. Or, maybe not! Happy crafting!
