Creative Expressions

I woke up Sunday morning, packed the suburban (-20 degrees outside) and drove to Fargo to spend a day with a dear friend. The kids thought for sure I was moving out as it took me 7 trips back and fourth to clear out the entry way of boxes, totes and scrapbooking suitcases. I made it to Fargo before lunch and after "Moving" into Kim's house we immediatly starting crafting. Our first project was the St. Patties purse. The little leprechaun is created by Stampin' Up punches. It took us a little bit to figure out the hat, but after breaking out the martini's it finally all made sense.

Project Supplies: Bag and background scallop cut out with a Cricut Expression. Leprechaun-Small Tag, Word Window, Oval, 1 3/4 circle, Scallop and Small Circle Punch, Googlie Eyes, a little blush (make up) Black Marker, Small non SU Heart Punch, Piece of Yellow Paper cut by hand to make buckle, Retired All Seasons Stamp Set (Clover) with Versa Mark ink and Green "LOVE" M&M's from Wal-mart.

*Note the LARGE Martini Glasses in the Crafting Chaos. Kim has a way with Martini's...The Apple Martini she made is from T.G.I Fridays.......Yummy!

************************************************************************************* After finishing up our St. Pattie's projects we started working on some baby gift sets that Kim wanted to complete. She got one set done and an ABC block box, which turned out really cute. The gift set included a surprise box, covered mint patties, gift card and candy bar holder and a rubber duck.

Kim surprised me with this cute Minnie & Mickey Mouse box filled with goodies....So as I drooled over how cool her Cricut Expression was and how I want this Mickey & Friends Cartridge. (I have a regular cricut, which doesn't cut stuff out as big as I would like.) Now I have another thing that I just HAVE to have.....Valentine's day is right around the corner. (Hint, Hint)

I cut out bags, boxes and of course more Mickey and Minnie stuff for Ashton. I plan on making a couple scrapbook pages that I would like to frame and put in her room. So, I had more fun playing around with that then I did anything else.....I did make a few things that to this day we don't know what we would use them for, VCR Cover???, Small Crayon Box.....I wonder if the Martini's had anything to do with it.......we sure had a fun day. (Thanks Kim)
