Love is in the air!

Happy Saturday! For all you Circlets out there I hope you stopped by the Circle Blog to check out the project I shared there today! It is a home decor project that has a bit of a love theme to it! I also hope you find some inspiration for your next project as you check it out!
For those of you stopping by here today I am sharing a couple of my recent Bo Bunny projects! This card and the treat box below are for my husband for Valentine's Day! Hopefully he won't check out my blog until after he gets them! I used the Crazy Love collection. I really love the pink and chocolate brown color combo!
For this treat box I covered a box of chocolates that my MIL sent us for Christmas and I filled it with dark chocolate Ferrero Rocher! Yum-mee!!! I used the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge to create the swirls and the Mother's Day Bouquet Cartridge for the flowers. These have definitely become 2 of my go to cartridges for crafting these days!
To create the flowers I cut out multiple flower shapes in gradually decreasing sizes. (The largest flower is 3 inches) I then lightly misted each flower with water and crumpled it. I then used my heat gun to dry them and help them keep there newly found shape. I then layered them and added the brad and glitter to create the centers.
Ahhhh...a up close peak of the yumminess!!!Here's hoping you have a wonderful weekend and a very Happy Valentines Day! Thanks for stopping by!
HAPPY VALENTINES HUGS!

CHA in review: Cricut Circle Swarm & Day 1

I know I am a little late with the CHA update, but the snow kept me there a little longer than expected and I just haven't had time to put this together until this weekend. I have a ton of photos, but for some reason I always seem to end up wishing I had taken more and feel like I am missing photos of some things I wish I had gotten a picture of. Some of that would probably be improved upon if I had a better camera. Maybe next time! Back to the photos I do have...since I have quite a few and I don't want to overload you, I am going to break them up into a couple of posts! Today's post is going to focus on my first 2 days in LA.

I arrived safe and sound in LA, but without my luggage! Thank goodness it went out on the next plane and I had it by the next morning. My brother picked me up from the airport and he insisted that I at least see the ocean while I was there. We arrived just in time for me to see a rather pretty sunset!
Friday was super fun as I helped out and attended my very first Cricut Circle Crop! I had a great time meeting some of my fellow Circlets and I was amazed at how much scrapping they got done! I usually end up doing more talking than scrapping at these things!

Cricut Circle Swarm
Here is the make and take booth! Gotta love green glitter and Mod Podge!
Jinger Adams stopped by and did a few giveaways!!!
Teresa Collins stopped by and shared the exciting news that she will be doing some cartridges!!!
You can read more about it on her blog HERE.
And this lucky lady won a fabulous giveaway of some of her new goodies!
CHA Day 1
Welcome indeed! And the sunshine in LA was glorious!!Once inside at the Provo Craft it was quite evident that they were celebrating!
It was the Cricut's 5th birthday!
And to celebrate 5 years Provo Craft designed a limited edition Cricut Expression.
Isn't it beautiful???
I just loved the Cricut in the carpet too! How cute!!!
This is a photo of the booth before all the mayhem began on Saturday!
Everyone wanted one of these little guys! Aren't they adorable?!
They gave these out to everyone that dropped by the booth.
(At least until they ran out!)The lovely Jana Eubank manning the Circle table!
Here is the fantastic Michelle Lanning helping out at one of the amazing make and takes they had each day!
Saturday evening Provo Craft held a party and the entertainment for the evening weredancers from the show "So You Think You Can Dance": Twitch, Josh and Comfort and several other dancers from some other dance shows! I absolutely LOVE this show and I was pumped to get the opportunity to watch them dance in real life! Dancers like that always amaze me with their talent and athleticism and it was so entertaining!
I got lucky enough to get a photo with Twitch and needless to say Danny was super jealous!!!
I even took a couple of videos of them dancing that you can check out here:



I leave you with a photo of some of my fellow Cricut Circle designers!
Michelle, Jana, Me, Amy, Cindy and Shantaie
These ladies are AWESOME and I really feel blessed to have had the chance to meet them and to spend some time getting to know them! I really felt a close to connection to them and feel like I have made some great friends!!! And these ladies made my CHA a truly wonderful and fun filled experience!

HAPPY HUGS and stay tuned for my next update where I will share some photos from some other booths and share some of my new faves!

GCD Studios DT Call

My time with GCD Studios will be coming to an end soon, but it has been a great year! It has been a pleasure to work with all of the talented ladies who have been a part of the team this past year and to work with the fabulous products created by GCD Studios. (My favorite has been the Chip Art Tool by Melody Ross!) But, as one thing ends another begins and that beginning could be yours! GCD Studios is having a DT call for 2011 that is going on now and will be open until March 5th. They are going to be adding 9 designers to their team and they are looking for altered item gals, card gals and scrapbook gals. You can stop by the GCD Studios blog HERE to find out more.

Also, they are having a contest for you to win a trip to the Melody Ross Brave Girl's Camp! You can check out all the details HERE!

And while you are hopping around their blog, make sure you take time to check out all the new collections they released at CHA! They are adorable and I had a great time playing with them and creating projects for the booth at CHA! I would love to post the projects, but I think they will be posted on the GCD blog in the very near future. So stay tuned over there!
Good luck and happy crafting!
HUGS!
