Cricut Challenge #43 - Challenge Me Monday

I found the coolest cricut challenge blog! It's called Fantabulous Cricut. The challenge this week was to create a card using something sweet on your project (ie, ice-cream, candy, cake, etc). I used a cupcake and a present from the Doodlecharms cartridge and made a card for my niece (she just turned 8!).
I used the following Stampin Up paper for my card:
Whisper White for the base
Daffodil Delight patterned paper for the layer
Bashful Blue and Pacific Point for the present
Regal Rose, Rose Red and Crumb Cake for the cupcake

I went back and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the candle to make it really shine! Hope you like my card, please comment! I love comments! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Filmstrip Save the Date Tutorial

Hi Everyone!!

I'm excited because I have just created my first video on You Tube! I wanted to make my own Save the Dates for our wedding using a filmstrip photo. My sister in law took some great pictures of us so I just had to make the filmstrip and the card. Take a look at my 4 part video series on You Tube. Here is the first video:

Thanks for watching!

A New Year, No Baggage

Hi my fellow readers! ... If I have any out there ;) If not, at least I'll know I'll be reading this later in life and maybe my "future" kids as well. ;)
I say "no baggage" in the new year because that is what the guest Pastor Albert Tate spoke about today in church. Leave your baggage behind and trust God. So, that's what I did. I stood up, raised my hands to the sky and said, God, here you go. I have a lot of things in my past that I am not proud of...2 divorces, moving all around all the time, not trusting God, letting a lot of pain and sorrow build up for what I lost and what I don't have. I stood up today in church and gave away all my excess baggage so I can start fresh and look forward to my new life. My life with God, and Galen. Only 143 days until I am Mrs. Becker...I'm SO excited about that! :) We hope to start trying for a baby right after the wedding in May. It all seems so surreal, but I guess that is what makes it a little scary...the unknown. But that is what you get when you lose that familiar baggage you're carrying around and trust God to take you where you need to go.
I'm ready Lord, let's go!
