I am on a challenge kick lately so please bare with me! I just can't get enough of these oh so fun challenges! For this submission, I headed over to Emma's (My Creative Time with Emma) blog which is www.creativetimeforme.com. Every Thursday, Emma hosts a challenge that she calls "Throwback Thursdays" which inspires us to use older cricut cartridges or any cricut cartridges that we own to make super fun crafty projects. Emma's blog is one of my favorite blogs to follow. She is so talented and helpful. I really think you should check it out if you haven't been there already. With all that said, I would like to share with you my submission for this week's "Throwback Thursday" challenge. This week we were given instructions to use a "Kid Friendly" cartridge, such as any "Disney" , "Create a Critter", "Nursery Tales", "A Child's Year" etc.......
***MUST BE A "Kid Friendly" THEME project of YOUR choice!!! and submit it by November 16, 2011. I chose to make a scrapbook layout of my niece from our vacation last July. I used The "Playtime" Cricut lite cartridge that I received with my Cricut expression as well as the "Classic Cricut Font" cartridge to make this layout. It is a fun colorful layout. I had fun making it. I really enjoy making scrapbook layouts and sharing them with friends and family so this was the perfect choice of project to make to share with you. I hope you enjoy this layout and that you gain some inspiration from this project! I also hope you play along with this challenge because it has been a lot of fun!

Hello my friends!
I am back with another entry for the "Celebrate the Occasion" blog.
I had so much fun playing along with last weeks challenge that I decided to participate in this weeks challenge, challenge number 38! This weeks theme is Veterans Day. The reason this theme was chosen is because this Friday 11-11-11 is veterans Day in the U.S. It is a time to honor those who serve(d) our country, keep us safe, and protect our freedom. If you would like to play along with this challenge or want to see projects that have been submitted for this challenge please visit http://celebratetheoccasion.blogspot.com/ you have until November 13th 2011 to submit your project for all to see. For my project, I made an A2 size card. I used the "Independence Day" seasonal Cricut cartridge. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think. Become a follower of this blog if you like what you see and If you have a blog tell me about it and I will stop by and visit. I love connecting with other people who love crafting just like me.

I hope all is well!
I have a lot to share with you today. It has been a great weekend for creating. I found myself with lots of time to spend in my craft room and that always makes me happy. I hope all of you get to spend some time creating this weekend too!
Yesterday, I finished my 2nd Christmas Scrapbook layout of 2011. I love how it turned out! I used 3 Cricut Cartridges to make this layout. The cartridges I used are "Jolly Holidays", "Classic Cricut Font", and "Christmas" (It came w/the Gypsy). I plan to put pics of our Christmas tree on this page. And Today, I made my 1st 2 Christmas cards of the season. The tree came from the "Jolly Holidays" cartridge. The stamps came from the dollar bin at Michaels. I know it is not even Thanksgiving yet, but I am in the mood for Christmas. I hope this post gives you some inspiration and ideas for your holiday crafting. Remember it is never to early to get your holiday crafting done.
Have a wonderful evening!
Happy crafting !
