Thank you!

Thanks to all who participated in the Fabulous Fifty Blog Hop and thanks for all the encouraging comments!  Thanks also to Angela who invited me to participate-I hope we all get together to do another one soon.  I will take all the comments before midnight and draw for the Stork's Delivery cart.  These carts are not even available to us until March 1, so I will order that day if I have the winner's info.  I may have a surprise up my sleeve for one or two runners-up that I will even throw the late posters names into. I will absolutely cut it off at midnight tonight for the surprise prize.  I will announce the winners tomorrow.  Thanks again and I will have a new post for you this week with a great little album I worked on this weekend.

Fifty and Fabulous Blog Hop and Blog Candy!

If you are here for Angie's Paper Passion's 50th Birthday Blog Hop and you have just come from visiting Normea at, then you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to and start at the beginning.

I can't tell you how excited I am to be celebrating with all the gals on the Fifty and Fabulous Blog Hop today!  We are happy to wish Angela a very happy birthday!  And I, for one, am happy to welcome her to the over 50 gang! 

Angela asked only that we make a project of any kind depicting a celebration, birthday or party using our Cricut.  I am primarily a scrapbooker,  so I decided to make a double page layout.  Since my daughter and husband have birthdays on consecutive days in July, we always celebrate them together.  Both of them hate to have their picture taken and this year was no exception.  These were taken inside a dark and wonderful restaurant called Prejeans in Lafayette, LA.  They are not good pictures, but they are what I have!!  I try not to make the layouts too girly or too masculine.  I really like the way they turned out this year.

I used a hodgepodge of paper and items I had on hand to make this layout.  I'll try to list what I used, but forgive me if I leave something out and feel free to let me know if I do and I'll add it later.

I used:
Cricut Celebrate with Flourish cartridge
Creative Memories cardstock, printed paper, adhesives and tools
Basic Grey printed cardstock, Lemonade
Pearl accents are from Kaisercraft
Bo Bunny cardstock and buttons
Cuttlebug and swiss dots embossing folder
Prima flowers
Chalk Ink by VersaMagic
Numbers are Thickers
Karen Foster scrapping floss
Celebrate ribbon (came from a local scrapbook store, Woven Hearts, and I don't know the manufacturer)
There is one sweet floral paper that I don't know the manufacturer

Now for the blog candy!  I will give away one of the new Creative Memories exclusive Cricut carts, Stork's Delivery, to one of the lucky blog hoppers!  Just leave a comment today before 12:00 midnight or follow my blog and you will be eligible to win!  I am new to blogging, so this will be chosen the old fashioned way, numbers in a hat!!  Please leave me a way to contact you!

Please be sure to visit the other blogs participating in the Fab 50 blog hop!
