Anniversary Card

This is an anniversary card I mad for a friend.  I took the backing behind the burlap from Accent Essentials.  Then I made a flower from burlap.  The sentiment is from some cheap stamps I got on clearance.  I love them!

Thanks for looking!

Fruit Salad Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

I had trouble photographing this card because of the cut but you get the idea ;)

I used my Hello Kitty cartridge for the strawberry.  I got this card in a pack of cards once upon a time and just haven't used them.  This seemed like a good use!

I used all scraps for my paper of things that were just sitting on my craft table.  I was pretty proud of myself for that. 

My kids leave for overnight camp on Sunday so I am going to stick this in my daughter's bag.

Thanks for visiting.  Come visit us at Fantabulous Cricut to join the challenge!

Carnival Birthday Party

For the past few years my sister and I have done one big family party for our kids.  We have found it easier to do 1 party instead of 4.  The kids love it and we have a lot of fun putting it together.

This year we did a carnival party.  She came up a few days early and we locked ourselves in my craftroom and had some fun!

Here was our sign pointing to the way for their gifts.  I downloaded a free font and then chalked in their names.

I had a piece of scrapbook paper with numbers on it so we just circled the kids ages and framed it.  My sister made the super cute cupcake toppers!  I can't remember which cartridge I used for the mini banner.

We have circus peanuts, cotton candy, and animal crackers in the buckets.

 In one of my pads of paper we had this piece of paper.  So we put a spinner on it and my sister came up with a simple game that the kids loved!  In each jar there is something fun.  The kiss jar has Hershey Kisses but in the love one, for example, there are activities like "hug the next person you see."  In fun we put some funny things for the kids to do like "high five everyone for five minutes."  The kids really loved this activity and we got a kick out of watching them enjoy something so simple.

Bean bag toss

Photo booth before we moved it to a place where it wouldn't blow around.

You saw this banner in my old post!

Popcorn bar and drinks.  We had some fun toppings on the table like M&Ms, chocolate chips and then all the sprinkle stuff... lots more too.

Ring toss onto IBC bottles
 We used glow bracelets for ring toss

 These bowls are for the bean bag toss

Each kid had a laundry basket labeled for their gifts.

4th of July Cricut Crawl Challenge # 167 Red White and Blue

Welcome to Crafting Misfit and the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!
In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl.  Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!
If you've come from Nikki's blog at Crafty Calamities, you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE to start at the beginning.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!
For my project I created a CELEBRATE banner.  I have so much trouble photographing banners!  I used Birthday Bash for the banner pieces and Lyrical Letters for the font.  I didn't buy a single piece of paper for this project!  So proud of myself for that!!!!!
Want some blog candy?!  I have some goodies for someone who visited and commented on my blog during this hop!  Check back Monday to see who the winner is!

Your next stop is Robin .  Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!
