Ahoy Matey LO

Aww Christmas is over...I cannot believe it is almost 2011. Which means off to work I must go. :( I guess all things must come to an end. My baby is turning 3 months old tomorrow. Oh how time flies.
This LO is of my independent girly girl on her brother's 3rd birthday party. It was pirate theme so I had to dress her up too. :) I cut my cute little girl from Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. The layout is from a sketch I found. I am entering this into the Sketches in Thyme Open Challenge. The border punch is a Stampin Up border punch.
Here is the sketch I used:

Simple LO

I made this page using Glitz paper. The only cricut cut I used was the circle which i used from George and Basic Shapes cartridge. I used some ribbon I had from a halloween pack to put around my picture of my daughter and I. The flower is a find from the swap meet near my house. It was actually a floer that was attached to a hair claw clip. they were only 1.50 and had 2 flowers attached. So of ourse I had to pick up some in different colors and detach them from the clip. Then I just made my own swirls with rhinestones. Enjoy

Birthday cupcake

I made some birthday cards today. I am entering this into My Pink Stamper's challenge to make a birthday card and Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge to use embossing. The background paper is Basic Grey paper called Granola. I embossed the paper behind the cupcake with my cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday embossing folder. The cupcake is cut from Create a Critter cartridge. I wanted to use my peachy keen stamps but could not find my gypsy (since my daughter plays with it constantly) to hide the cuts. I added stickles to the cherry. The stamp is from Pink by Design stamp set. Love her stamps.
