Here are 2 more layouts I finished today.
I am enjoying making these layouts so much. None of the layouts are glued or chalked. I will be working on these when I go on the cruise.
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday.

I have been working on layouts using my cricut cartridges for the past few weeks or maybe its been a month already. Well, who's counting. Last night I started this layout and finished it within 5 hours. I did use 5 different cartridges to get everything that I wanted and even had to fuzzy cut my own pieces at times. My inspiration came from Faith Abigail, http://www.faithabigaildesigns.com/. She has some amazing ideas and when I found her blog I was like, OK, I have to scraplift this layout.
Here is my version:
Happy Thursday to you all.

Today I am sharing a layout I started and yes this time it ended with pictures. If you all know me and have been following me for a while you'd know that I do not put pictures on my layouts. I make them for fun. I have about 150 double page layouts and no pictures. Go figure. I know what you must all be thinking, WHY? Well, to be honest with you, I can't seem to find the pictures for the layouts. I feel my layouts are a work of art and a picture will take away from it. But with that said, I do have many albums with pages and pictures. I have several of my girls, of my dog, of my husband, my husband and I, my family etc.
I have been busy creating layouts to take on my cruise to work on. I have been buying cricut cartridges this week. I bought one that I really wanted called BEEP BEEP. It is a boy cartridge, but for some reason even though I do not have any boys, my eye seems to always go towards boy layouts. I can't seem to stop creating them.
Here is the cartridge:

Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a great week so far. Here in what is called Sunny Florida is anything but sunny. We have been having horrible weather. The lightning and thundering has my poor Roscoe hiding anywhere and everywhere. The rain is great for the grass, plants and trees, but this weather stinks.
But enough with this weather and on to my altered little cabinet.
I used the DCWV French Country paper stack. Tammy from California sent it to me because I could not find it anywhere. She was so sweet to have done that. She does not have a blog but her name on youtube is sscrafter1. The inspiration came from Juliana on youtube. Her channel is iluvvintagescrap, her blog is: http://iluvvintagescrap.blogspot.com/.
Here is my take on the small cabinet:
http://www.uniquelyella.blogspot.com/. It is super cute, looks like banners so I cut them up and glued them down. I put some flat back pearls on the flowers. I glued on the ends a bow made of twine and also glued some pearls on it. The butterfly in the center is a button that I bought at a garage sale. On the bottom I glued down a flower I made with some lace, some pearl sprays and a mirrored butterfly from Michaels. The tiny flowers around are from a garage sale as well.
http://upordowntheyrebeautiful.blogspot.com/. She made them out of clay, I did stickle it in blues, pinks and whites. The large glass jar on the right side is stuffed with a pearl trim that has hanging hearts on it. I glued a trim around it and then a light blue pearl trim in the middle. I glued to the top a small doillie and then a acrylic flower. Some seam binding around the top and hung an angel I made with my beads. I added to the back a frame from Michaels. The image is from a paper collection I cut out. Some tiny flowers around the bottom and some random embellishments to finish it off.
Well, this is my latest creation. I hope I can inspire you all, as much as I was by all the talented ladies I mentioned above.
Have a great rest of the week.

Just wanted to do a short post letting you all know that I am still alive. I will be back, but for now I have other things I am working on and take priority over blogging. I am working on many layouts, for a lady I scrap for. I am also working on some more kits, can't seem to stop cutting with my machine. I am sure it wants a rest, but not for now.
I have also been spring cleaning, I know I am late, but taking down curtains, washing them, vaccuming the blinds and cleaning the windows. I clean the windows weekly but the blinds,not really. I hate cleaning those. So this week on wednesday I attacked them and now going around the house cleaning the rest. The ones in my scrap room and the master bedroom are the worst ones. The scrap room ones I have to take the desk area out, clean behind there and then clean the windows. I am also taking down the curtains, washing them and then I have to iron them. Thankfully, my oldest will be coming over today and helping out.
Will be back soon.
Here is a layout I did for the cruise.
