3 More Reasons Why I Love My Cricut/Gypsy

Just look at these, aren't they gorgeous. My spring bundle cartridges arrived yesterday and these are from the "Mothers Day 2010" cart. I have just cut them out on scraps (plain paper would have been more effective) but i just love them. Now I cant wait for my expression to arrive so I can cut them out at 12inches. These were cut at 6inches. Let me tell you the funny thing. I always buy these doily papers and they sit in my stash b/c i don't really know how to use them, i had better learn quick they are so pretty. Yesterday i went to a class at my local scrapbook store
and we made these two LO's all with Pink Paislee kits. Inking,reds and browns yum my favourite and some pretty blue glitter alphas, and check out the funky flower. Thanks Evana i enjoyed my afternoon.
It's another beautiful day in our part of the world. I slept in until really late then we all went out for lunch. It's fun at the moment going out with our 2 nearly adult children, watching and listening to them, realising that we wont have many years left of this but feeling very proud at the way they have grown up and matured.
We had to evacuate from out house last Monday as there was a severe bush fire a block behind us. It was pretty scary, i am used to cyclones not fires. The water bombers were right over us, i am sure that if you were on the roof you could have touched them. Luckily we were allowed back home after a couple of hours and no damage done but boy was it close just at the end of the street.
I had so much planned for today ie-ironing, baking, scrapping... but whenever i go out to lunch i always feel lazy when i get home. So guess what, i am on holidays and i can do it all tomorrow.
Have a good Sunday everyone.
Linda
