Altered Paint Can for Easter Swap

Here is the paint can I made for my partner Arlene in the Cricut message board Easter Paint Can Swap that I hosted. The funny thing is that Arlene and I both decorated the cans very similar! You will see in my last blog post the can that she made for me. I think it's hilarious that we both used the exact same Cricut cuts to decorate our cans!

Easter Paint Can Swap

Here is the awesome paint can I received from my partner, Arlene in the Cricut Easter Paint Can Swap that I hosted. I think Arlene and I have the same taste because I decorated her paint can quite similar!! I love it! This paint can is so beautiful! I love the chocolate bunny and the Happy Easter lettering and the beautiful patterned paper and ribbons she used.
It was also full of awesome goodies such as some Cuttlebug embossing folders, my favourite adhesive, stickles, some adorable princess brads, Thickers and more! Thank you so much Arlene! What a fun swap! I hope Arlene likes the paint can I made her as much as I like the one she made me!

Hi everyone! I have started a new travel blog! I plan on posting about trips we've been on, upcoming trips, travel tips, etc. I just started it a few days ago, so there aren't too many posts yet, but I will try to keep it up to date. So, if you're interested in travel, please check out my new blog at http://cruiseandtravelgirl.blogspot.com. Thanks! :)

Dinosaur Tracks

Wow!! Am I ever behind in posting! I just noticed that I haven't posted anything on my blog in close to a month. This also reflects on the fact that I'm also behind in my scrapbooking and Project Life. I just finished a Project Life layout last night, but I'm still behind a couple weeks and am hoping to get caught up soon!
It has been a busy weekend! Today, I went across the border to Port Huron in search of the Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge. I couldn't find it at my local scrapbook stores, so thought I would try the states. Another Cricut mb member suggested Meijers and sure enough, that's where I got it! I was so happy because it was the last one on the shelf and it was $59 which I think is a pretty good price, considering Cricut carts are on sale at my local Michaels store for $69 right now! I'm going to have to shop in the states more often!
I was so excited to get this cart because my daughter, Paige would like to have a dinosaur-themed birthday party so I thought this would be great for making party decorations. I think I will also be making birthday invitations using the card feature of this cartridge. I can't wait to try it out!
