1st Project with my new E2

I absolutely love the preloaded cartridges that came on the new E2. I especially love the 3 cupcakes on Cricut American Alphabet because I am obsessed with all things cupcakes.
I was looking for a cupcake air freshner but thought to myself why make my DH visit every car wash or automotive store in a 20 block radius for a cupcake air freshner, when I can make my own.
Side 1 Side 2
I grabbed a blank cd from my DH stash and had him drill a hole into it with the smallest bit he had. I took 2 pieces of cordinating cardstock, traced the cd and cut out 2 circles. I cut 2 different cupcakes in my favorite color...PINK!!! Grabbed my ATG gun and pieced everything together.
Here is a picture of the finished project. I also added a picture of it hanging from the rear view mirror. Here's a close up of both before I hung them up:
I think I need to add some glitter for a little extra something something. As soon I take it down and add the glitter I will post an updated picture.
Im going to make one for my DH tonight. I'll post pics of that one too, once its done.

I opened up my beautiful Mother's Day card from my kids and to my surprise, there was a shipping receipt from Provo Craft inside. I was the proud owner of a new 5th Anniversary Cricut Expression. I was so excited I didn't know if I should scream or cry. Guess what......I did both!!!!! **Fast Forward to Friday May 20.

I get home from picking up my daughter from school expecting my cricut to be delivered but nothing...or so I thought! My husband and daughter were playing a trick on me...Hidden behind my son's playpen was a huge box!!!!!
There it was, just screaming for me to open it up!!!!!

So I did!!!!!

He was SO HAPPY to see me, he asked for a hug, I was very HAPPY to oblige. =0D

There he is, out of that ugly brown box and shining in his GREEN & white beauty.

Off to play I go.....I will post my first project created with my new E2.

Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave me a comment and please come again.

Safari Themed Baby Shower

My sister in law is expecting with her first child, who is due to arrive in mid June. The proud parents to be have decided not to find out the sex of the baby. Her baby shower is approaching very quickly and I have been asked to come up with some ideas for a baby shower invite.

The theme that was chosen is Fisher Price Baby Safari. Below is a picture of the plate for the cake table.
I think the design is adorable. I made 3 different designs that she can choose from. As soon as they decide, its off to mass produce. Thank goodness its only 40 invitations. Here they are~

Option #1:

Option #2:

And Last but not least~

Option #3

I had a really fun time making these. I hope you've enjoyed taking a look at my work. Please feel free to come back anytime.

P.S~ As soon as the proud parents pick a design I will be sure to let everyone know.

As always,
