**this is from yesterday but i never hit publish!!!***


it just occurred to me that i forgot to post today!  ACK!  we spent the morning in the yard and the afternoon meeting with suzanne – pezzy was so excited because she got to be in the meeting 😛  she is so funny sometimes!  we have a SUPER issue in the works for early May AND i am going to teach some classes on her Copic Classroom site!!!  i am VERY excited about that!  I will have a beginners tips cardmaking class as well as several cricut classes!  YIPPEE!  and speaking of Cricut…

I am a bit late but wanted to post my DT project for Cricutters Anonymous (formerly Just Buggin’)  Samantha challenged us to make a gift for a family member (mine will actually be given to my Secret Sister in the Moms Club I am in):

I cut my little gift bag using the Tags Bags Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge and set it to Fit To Page – so this way it cut the image as large as possible for a 12×12 page – in this case 5 3/4″ i believe.  I wanted to add the pink cuttlebugged piece to each of the four sides but the panels are not exactly square.  so that i could get perfectly cut pieces i cut a second pink gift bag 1/2″ smaller.  then i cut each side apart and had perfectly cut layers.  I put them through my cuttlebug and then inked the raised portion lightly with Brilliance Moonlight White.  The flower is cut using the Forever Young Cricut cartridge – i thought it looked very Mary Engelbreit-ish to match the goodies in the bag:

Inside are a matching set of cute nail files and mini notepad that i found at Michaels – the dollar bin is HOT right now i have to say!  I got a bunch of different sets with different things – journals, notepads, mini kleenex pack, nail files, etc all by mary engelbreit whose style i absolutely ADORE – oh if only she made stamps and scrapbook stuff *swoon*!  i lined the handle with matching glittered skittles – LOVE how it turned out!  Now to go sneak it onto her porch!

i have more on my weekend to do list than is probably sane to even try but i am determined to get as much done as possible!  i may not be back here until monday!
