I'm a Little Slow on the Uptake !!

I have been soooo exhausted lately that by the time I get home I just want to pass out.  

I posted a little while back in the Circle about finally using the Gypsy "hide" feature to do a card.  

This is my card.  I used (finally) Elegant Edges and the border feature.  All of the scalloped edges had little cutouts in them.  I really just wanted a scalloped border, so I hid all the little cutouts!  It worked, I'm happy ! Yeah me.  

This card is my version of one I saw in the Cricut Cards magazine from last fall.  I made it an Easter Card for my husband.

Hubby Birthday Dinner Smash Page.......

My hubby loves, loves, loves Johnny Rockets!  We both enjoy 50's music, jukeboxes, soda fountains.......These are reasons why we ended up dating to begin with!  This is a fun page I made for him. The picks were run through my Xyron to make a sticker.

The Tag is made from his Hat-----Inked with Tim Holtz Fire Brick Red Distress.  Glossy Accents and Martha Stewart superfine glitter. Hat was cut and both sides are decorated the same.  Attached to chipboard for added strength.

The paper background is a wrapper they put around the sandwiches that I stiffened up with modge podge on the front and back of it and then attached it to the page.

The Good Times, Good Food and the Round Johnny Rockets are both from the Take-Out Bag!  Cut, attached to Quickutz double adhesive backed chipboard for strength, inked with Tim Holtz Antique Linen & Walnut.

Thank you for looking!

SMASH BOOK Pages.......

I used the tags/identifiers you all sent in a SmashBook page--I believe two people did not include their info so they are missing...  :(

I used Renee's cute packaging as my inspiration for the page.  I had found a paisley rub on at Michael's the other week that was only $0.79 and had bought it for my stash.  It turned out to be perfect for this page! 

I am quite pleased with this page.  I put a little mini-album on the right with 4 wallet sized photos!  It's fun and eclectic and a great way to save all my memories of this swap!!

Charm Swap!

How much fun the charm swap was!  I was so amazed at the Charms that I received.  I will step-it-up a notch next time now that I can see what all can be done to Shrinky Dinks!!  

I have some  pictures of what I have used some of them for.   I used all the shrinky dink ones that were about the same size on a bracelet.  I will add some beads to it also when I get some time! 

I used a pink and white circle charm shaped like a tag with beads as a zipper pull on my cricut bag.  I used another antique button charm on my Slice bag zipper pull, I used two charms on my stylus' (only one pictured).
  My daughter took the Peace sign one for her backpack zipper pull.  Two Bottle caps are magnets on my refrigerator--one is a necklace sent by our host and it will stay a necklace!! 

I saved all of the tags you attached your charms to and made a page for my Smashbook! 

Easter Basket Swap!

Oh, it was a fun swap! Hosted again by Sherry- OctoberBeauty on the Circle Boards.  She does a wonderful job with swaps!  

My swap partner was Helen from Georgia.  Helen is married and has a son and daughter and a dog named Charlie!  She sent me this gorgeous thoughtful basket.  I am truly blessed with swap partners!
