On my way to the New Year!!!

It's AMAZING what a week off and with no homework will do for a girl!! Woo Hoo!!!
Tomorrow is the official end of my first week off and the beginning of my last week hoo. I have made a promise of catching up on my scrapbook and to post more often to my blog. Taaa I am doing both!!
I have to tell you, almost 2 years ago I was COMPLETLEY caught up on my scrapbook, from me and hubby in High School, our wedding, and both kids from birth. I was really caught up. That is when I started stamping (#$%^&**)!!! I do love stamping and the instant outcome and feeling of accomplishment that it brings, but I miss the emotional feelings and the connection that scrapping does for me.
Being able to scrap with my Cricut is even better. So here it Layout!!!

The paper is DCWV (Recycled Stack) and misc. cardstock. The title was cut using the Micky Font Cartridge and the Trees and leaves were cut with the new Dinosaur Tracks Cartridge. I inked up the edges of the cuts to age them a bit. I also popped up one of the trees using SU! Dementionals. Seen here...I love texture. I just had to take the title and use it in a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Seen here..

I know we (me, my sister Pam, and Ami) are not alone, when I tell you there comes a point when it seems to be more fun to collect all of the Cricut Cartridges than to use them. Then you just have to sit yourself down and make yourself use what you have. That is also on my "To Do" list for 2010..right after I place my new Occasions Mini order and Sale-a-Bration that starts January 5th, 2010.....SO GET READY!!!! let me know if you need to place an order or if you have any questions.

P.S...besides the hubby's B-Day card...this is the only thing I have done all week.....creative wise. The housework never ends!!
