Scrapbooking on the Cruise!

The Class Leader, TJ.

Here are some pics I took at the Scrapbooking Class on the Cruise last week.

I am back!

Our boat (Carnival Fantasy) and another boat docked in Cozumel.

Almost time for the sun to set over the ocean.

I am allergic to Tomatos, so I thought this
would make a funny picture.

Just enjoying the view.

I am home from my trip! It was fantastic. There was even a scrapbooking class on the cruise that I took. I will be making tons of pages in the next week and also start working on Easter items and much more, so be on the look out for lots of new projects coming. It will take me a few days to get everything back in order here first though. I took almost 400 pictures on my trip, so I have a ton of scrapbooking ahead. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Update on my grandfather

My grandfather's bone scan came back clear, so that is some good news. He will still have to go through chemo and radiation due to the bladder cancer and his heart not being in good enough condition for the surgery to remove the bladder. Thanks to everyone that prayed for him and please continue to pray for him. They have told us that once he starts his chemo and radiation he will not be able to go around a lot of people and everyone that comes to see him will need to wear masks to ensure that he does not catch anything, but we are just really thankful the cancer is not in his bones.

Non Traditional Valentine's Card

I wanted to make my hubby a card that wasn't just the regular reds with hearts and flowers for Valentine's day. I made him this card using the Wild Card Cart for the doily card cut at 5, and the Paisley Cart for the dog cut at 4 1/4. On the inside, I put the sentiment "I love having you around" as a play on words for the round hool a hoop. I used the MS loopy loop punch around the border on the inside sentiment. I put this card in the Just Buggin challenge for this week to make something for Valentine's day with the cricut.

Rockin Birthday Card

I made this card for Kaylee's 6th Birthday. The Doodledragon Challenge Blog has Challenge number 3 up and it was to make anything using Red, White and Black only. I used the Dustin Pike "You Rock" image. The star card was cut from the cricut using the Wild Card Cartridge and cut at a size 4 3/4. I used the top layer of the star as a stencil to trace around my image and cut it out. The inside red was hand cut and the inside sentiment was computer generated. I have a link to the Doodledragon Challenge Blog on my sidebar.

Zebra Wall Hanging

My niece has her room in pink with zebra stripes, so I made her this for her wall. The Zebra was cut from the Paisley Cricut Cartridge at a size 7. The layer sizes were cut as follows: car 3 1/4, Tire Centers 3/4, Zebra body 3 3/4, ear and middle circle 1, Flower 1 3/4. (I ended up not using the flower and its layer, because I liked the car without it.)

Kaylee's Art Holder

I altered this plastic bin that came from the dollar store with some vinyl and A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge. I made this for my niece and it has scissors, glue, google eyes, etc in it. This way she can keep it all together.

ABC's of Cricut Swap

I am in a swap/contest over on the cricut mb for the ABC's of Cricut. You were supposed to cut out an object to represent each letter (except for x). These were the cuts that I made!

Prayer Request

Everybody Please be praying for my grandfather. He had surgery recently to have a tumor removed from his bladder. They have now found out he has stage 3 bladder cancer and it is worse than they thought. They cannot remove the bladder, because they don't think he could survive the surgery. He will be having chemo and radiation soon, but first they are doing a bone scan on Thursday to see if the cancer is in his bones. Please keep him in your prayers.
