Back to School ....................

My DD5 is back to school on Wednesday & we spent the last couple of weeks making a gift for her new teacher. It took alot of patience to create but think we did a great job.

We used 2 embroidery hoops 9" & 12", each crayon was then placed individually & hot glued in place. The apples were made using the Speaking of School Cricut cartridge, page 31 in the handbook using the shift key & shadow feature. The lettering was cut using the Opposites Attract cartridge using the opposite feature & cut @ 1 1/4"

I just hope it lasts the year & the kids don't help themselves to the crayons !!!!! lol..........

I Made A Rainbow Cake..............

I saw one of these a while back via a Martha Stewart link & just knew I had to give it a go, it was alot of work & boy it contains more calories than I dared to imagine but OMG it was delicious !!!!!!!

OMG Where Have I Been.......................

Where have I been & what have I been up to in the past 2 yrs !!!!! How can it be so long since I was last here :o/
I am going to blame it all on facebook !!!!! lol

Not a great deal has changed in my life but I do feel that I am getting more creative, just wish I had more time to create.

I have done a couple of projects recently that I am really pleased with so will begin my new updated blog with those, lets see if I can remember how !!!!!! lol................
