Mickey Mouse Frames


Hey Diva's as you guys know I just moved to a new place. As I was unpacking I decided to get rid of alot of stuff and start completely over! Being that I love Disneyworld and the Mouse I decided to make the kids bathroom all Mickey *Insert your Happy Dance Here* I couldn't find any pictures that were w/in my price range that I loved so I pulled the Cricut out and went to work on these picture frames! I am so EXCITED on how they came out and if I do say so myself they look Absolutely FAB in the bathroom so much so everytime someone goes in there I'm like "Hey what are you doing in there, go in and come out Do Not touch the Mouse" lol!!  I birghtened the pictures up so that you could see the designs in the background paper a little better.



Recipe:
Cartridge: Mickey and Friends
Frames: 8 in X 10in $2.00 @ Kmart
Font: 3in and Mouse Shadow 5in on Cricut E2
Papers: Me and My Big Ideas Black and White(Polka Dots and Fancy Design), and Red Design is from my stash, the solid black white and red are all Recollection.
Cut the background paper @ 8in x 10in to fit in frame 

     I will be entering these into Made It Myself Monday over @ YouhadMeAtCraft as usual Thank you guys for stopping by and please feel free to leave your comments I love them and I look forward to them!!

Hurricane Irene

As most should know Hurricane Irene is in the East Coast right now, as you guys know I just moved and it just so happens that I'm in VA right where she has decided to pass through! My family and I have evacuated to a place in central VA so we are safe ( all praises to GOD), I ask that you all will pray for the people still there as I'm sitting here watching the news I have just heard that there has been 3 deaths including a child all to do with trees falling on homes or cars so I also ask that you all pray for the families who have lost a loved one! I just wanted to check in and I will definitely keep you all updated!

Blessing Card

Hey Guys Iiii'mmmm Baaackkk :) did you miss me lol? We are now starting to settle down in the new house and new state, I'm telling you moving from one state to another is a BUGGER! But I am very Thankful to GOD that we made it safely and everything found its way here in-tact (except for my vase that my husband promises he is going to replace since it was his fault that it broke lol)! So I made a deal w/ my oldest daughter (which from now on the children will be referred to as Crew Members and there birth order number,b/c when we are ready to go I always say "Ok Crew Round em Up lol) ie: Oldest daughter is Crew Member 2. Anyway she and I made a deal that if she gave up her room then she could get a Kindle for her birthday (did I just bribe my child?) I know what your thinking how can she do such a thing but seriously she had her own room @ our old house and she never stayed in it, she was always in the little girls room ( I would even find her in their room @ night sleep), so needless to say she said ok and I got a Craft Room/ Office YIPPEEE (doing my happy dance)!

Anyway let me get to the card b/c I know I'm just rambling on and on! My friend in GA helped me TREMENDOUSLY while we were moving and I wanted to send a card to let her know how much of a Blessing she is to me. I am Super Excited about this card because it is my first easel card  I had been seeing em around alot lately and I wanted to give it a try so you guys already know the drill let me know what you think and Be Blessed Guys!!
