Christmas Spirit

I am trying to find it.  This year it has been difficult.  Thank goodness things have improved lately and I have been reminded that I have so very much to be thankful for.

S,o in an attempt to spread a little Christmas cheer, I have a quick Cricut gift wrap idea to share with you.  Details are posted on the Cricut Blog if you are interested. I love the colors of this gift wrap...not your typical red and green and it was so much fun creating my own custom dyed ribbon.  You can read about that over there too!

The second project for you today is a layout I created using a new Cricut cartridge created for Creative Memories called This & That!  Love this cart!  It contains a wonderful array of playful images and phrases that fit just about any theme. It contains 2 really great fonts as well.  The layout I created also uses papers from the Creative Memories Reflections Collection.  They are really pretty in person...quite a few of the papers have this gorgeous silver embossed design in them!

Those of you who know me will look at this LO and wonder who those adorable children are. Well, a gal I work with, who is a photographer on the side, took this adorable photo and was sweet enough to allow me to use it for my scrapbooking enjoyment.  Thank you Liz!!!  If you want to see more, stop by the Cricut Blog and /or the Cricut Circle Blog to see all the newly released cartridges and the fabulous DT projects.  I am sure you will find something to inspire if you leave a comment you have the chance of winning some credits and who wouldn't want those after seeing all these new goodies?!
As always thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments!
