Oh the uses for the Cricut!

My husband and I decided to restore an old Montgomery Wards fridge that he had in his family for many years. We changed it from the original grey to the bright red coke color and I cut white vinyl letters with my Cricut and put them on it. Who knows how old this fridge is - it still runs good! LOL We put it in my kids hangout room and they will be using it for video game storage! We love how it turned out! Just another thing to add to our Coca Cola collection!

Had a great long weekend (Wednesday - Sunday) with my Ravenous Red Squirrel girlfriends again! Our theme this time was "Where the Wild Things Are"! We turned some heads walking through town to the coffee shop, scrapbook store and into the local restaurant but we didn't care we had a wonderful time! Not pictured is Jody, Kim and Karen - sorry we missed you girls in the photo! Michelle proposed to have a week long event next time - it just keeps getting longer and longer and longer and each time is more fun than the last!
Back Row: Holly, Ann, Liz, Linda, Me and Michelle
Front Row: Aimee, Beanie and Terry

I helped my cousin do a Military album for her son that she wants to give to him next weekend. We worked for several days solid on this and here is a sample of some of the pages - I think it turned out very nice! She had no idea how much work goes into these albums but is well aware now - Great job Nancy! I know he is going to love this! I couldn't crop the darn photos for some reason - sorry about that!

My first attempt at making the accordian type tri-fold card. Very easy to make and turns out so neat and different!

View from the top to show the uniqueness of how this card is made!

I finally did a scrapbook layout for the first time in months. This is our Golden Retriever (Maggie) playing with our neighbors puppy (Lilly) which is also a beautiful Golden! I just love when she comes over for visits - wish they would let me keep her! The dogs I used on the page are from Lisa's Precious Piecings - I changed the file a bit. It was originally a dog and a cat - I just made it into two dogs! She has great files - check them out at http://preciouspiecingsbylisa.ecrater.com/.

Another card that I made tonight - I need to get my photos organized and get scrapbooking - I am getting further and further behind! I love making cards too though!

Bought some cute outdoor, camping type stamps about a month ago and haven't used them yet so I decided to make a card with them!

I decided to play around with my vinyl tonight and add some more things to my cricut! It just looked to plain!
