My grandson is here.

Just wanted to share with you guys a picture of me and the newest addition to my family.  Mr. Trindan was born on October 26, 2010 at 10:34 am in Shreveport, LA.  He weighed in at a mighty 5lbs and 4 ozs.  Yeah, Yeah, that's sure is small but big things come in small packages.  Anyway, here goes my rooty pooty.

Cricut Expression for Schools

I was so very happy to be able to nominate L.P. Vaughn Elementary School in Natchitoches, LA  for the Cricut Circle Expression Giveaway.  My cousin teaches kindergarten at the school and she knows how much I love my E, Gypsy, and all things Cricut. 

I had been telling her to remind me of the date to register because I so wanted her school to have a shot.

Here she is with her machine.  We actually cut a few images yesterday off the Plantin Schoolbook cart.  I had never even seen the Roly Poly image, but now I am sold on it.  LOL.  See you find so many new things daily with your Cricut.

Thanks Provo Craft for all you do.

Matthew 11:28

This week over at Platinum Scraps we completed our second challenge with the Basic Grey "Vagabond" line.  This paper actually had to grow on me but now I seem to like it.  Below is the card I made using the "Aged and Confused".  TFL.

Perfect Paradise

This week over at Platinum Scraps  each designer had to complete a layout of their choice using the Basic Grey Paper line Vagabond.  I decided to scrap a few of my pictures from Jamaica..  I cut several 2 by 2 squares out of the Vagabond line and place them strategically throughout my layout.

A Girl's Best Friend

This week over at Platinum Scraps each designer had to create a layout from the following sketch from Got Sketch.  I took some photos of my darling granddaugther Symone and our dog Deuce.  Hint, Hint, he's a Saint's fan as well.  Naw, anyway, Symone worries him to death.  I know if he could talk, he would say "Calgon, Please take Symone away".  She tries to ride him, pulls his tail, wants to eat his food and drink his water, then turns around and slips him food and allows him to sip her sippy cup when Nana is not watching. 

She got in the clothes basket then of course he had to follow.  We call her smile, "The Evil Smile"  and she put on a big one. 

To my dear friend who tells me to drift away from the Cricut sometime, this one is for you.
