Caleb scored!

So Jeremy and Caleb went to Sam's Club to do some shopping and I told them there was a big pack of construction paper there. Yep...they got it. Here he is so proud!

Here is a closer look at all the colors :0)
Guess he'll be busy for quite a while with all this :0) Have a great day everyone!

Tinkerbell note book :0)

So I finally got around to making myself one of the altered Michael's note books I picked up. Just wanted to share the final result and of course it's Tinkerbell!

I love the way this turned out :0) The Tinkerbell is a dimensional sticker I got in RAK from Pea along with the green sparkly ribbon, Thanks again Pea! The pearl swirls and flower are from Michael's and I just cut it apart to work for what I did. I cut my name out with my Tear Drop font cartridge. I even put tiny pom poms on Tink's slippers and used some iridescent glitter glue over them along with on her wings, even though you can't see it here :0) Hugs!

Cricut Create Cover!

So I was on google, googling Lol!, and I wanted to figure out how to make a cover for my Create. My mom came over and we were trying to make a pattern and it wasn't working too well. We would have gotten it eventually but she said, "there has to be something online somewhere". Ding ding ding! I found a pattern as a free printable download and here it is. I took a couple of old pillow cases to practice on and they didn't turn out half bad. The second one is better after I tweaked the pattern a little. The first one was too lose fitting for my taste. Here are some pictures...

 First one :0)
Second one, more satisfied with this one :0)
Now I think I can move on to some good fabric, Tinkerbell of course.
I saw some at Walmart that was really cute and I think I am going to
try and quilt it so it isn't so thin. I'll keep you posted on my progress :0)

Have a fantastic weekend! I am off to a concert at our Southlands mall :0)

More altered notebooks...

These are some composition notebooks I got in the dollar bin at Michael's. I love the size of these :0)

Here is a closer look at each...

These are for my little neighbor girls that we have been friends with for a few years :0)

And here is a card I made for their Dad's birthday this weekend...
He definitely knows how to work the grill!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! We are swimming and barbecuing again on Saturday with Jeremy's Mom and Fiance and then off to see Transformers Dark of the Moon on Sunday! Hugs!

A little BMX action!

Today we went to a local park where they have a BMX dirt track. The boys had a blast! This is definitely a way to wear them out quickly :0)

I hope every one has a great weekend so far!
