I had a wonderful week!

All set for the Stampede. It took a long time to figure out what to take. I only took the bare essentials!
How pretty is the hotel!

Stop at the bar for a few drinks while we waited for our room. They had good tequila sunrises.

And margaritas!
Cricut was not able to make it but we did see some evidence of him.

I got a chance to see Theresa Collins. Wow! And was able to see some of her designs and took a class with her. Yay!!!
Mom and I made lots of tags while we were at the Stampede. I will post photos of them later. I can't really post any other pictures from the weekend. But after the weekend Mom and I drove up to Oklahoma to spend some special craft time with my wonderful Sister-in-Law at the Quartz Mountain Lodge outside of Lone Wolf.
On the way we stopped and saw her family before kidnapping her.
I got a chance to spend some time with my brother and nephews.

My big brother made us dinner, yummy pork chops and potatoes.

Ryan, my adorable nephew, how handsome is he!

Trey (Dennis) the youngest

Brandon the oldest nephew,the sweetie.

Christina's bedmate for the trip (and her husband's regular competition). Okay, now I have paid her back for the picture she put on her blog of me! He he he!

I was a little facinated by the spider webs and trying to get a picture.

We had a little fun taking pictures.

How pretty is this scenery. I love my mommy.

Sweet Christina having fun.

Mommy hard at work.
And now onto the projects we completed!

I decorated this wine glass for Christina. I used Old West and bronze vinyl.

I was able to make a decoration for the bottle my brother uses. I used the same bronze vinyl with the Old West cartridge and the skull is from Inde Art.

I made a picture frame for some of the pictures from this weekend. I used my new Cricut Everyday cartridge.

The phrases are kinda hard to see since they are on top of the glass. There is "On the Go", "Scrap Away", and "Cricut Addicted". And what a cute bug head!

This is the start of my sweet SIL's project. She cut gold vinyl out with the Country cartridge. Hopefully she sends me a picture when it's done.

Mom played with her new flower soft and we loved the outcome. The cuts are from the Cricut Lite Bloom cartridge.

I made this for the house. I used silver vinyl to cut out the heart design from Love Struck and the letters from Storybook. I really like how it turned out.

6 year old's birthday card

I have had this idea roaming in my head for awhile. And while I like the idea I am not real sure on the execution. I do, on the other hand, like how the inside turned out.
I used Car Decals for the stick figures, Celebrations for the numbers and large orange square, and several Cuttlebug embossing folders.

I think I may be crazy

I have decided to have another party for my son's friends. 16 teenagers in my house and 8 girls will sleep over. Yep, I am crazy! But I got to craft the invitations again! These were so easy. I used my newest cartridge, Camping Critters. I made 14 of these in just under 3 hours total.

They were extremely easy and very plain. The snappiest thing about them was the stickles!

On another note, one of my co-workers traded in her car last year and lost her favorite bumper sticker. I finally got around to making her a replacement. I think mine is better since I added the couple and made it out of vinyl. I used Platin Schoolbook and Car Decals. I really like the Car Decals cartridge. It has some really cute images. I have a banner planned that I want to use it for next.

The picture is a little hard to see since (silly me) I put the transfer paper on before I took the photo! Once she puts it on her car I will get another picture.
