chocolate pears

I saw these chocolate covered pears on the cricut board and the gal used them for the bitten by the bug challenge to use the pear from home accents.   She was gracious enough to send me some of the pears.  Here what i came up with. I used a frosted sheetload card and then used staz on to stamp the sentiment.

cool in the pool layout

I been struggling to scrap pictures of my song playing with the hose this past summer.  We were filling the pool up and he wanted to get in so i said sure as long as the hose stays in the pool.  He had a lot of fun playing with the hose.  I remembered i had made a layout earlier in the summer about the pool that i had not put pictures on.  This layout worked out great for the photos i had.  Sometimes making layouts before you have pictures works out.  Let me know what you think. 

cuttlebug color challenge

the challenge this week over on the cuttlebug site is to use color with your embossed image. I used a brass rose stencil ran it thru my cuttlebug and then use various markers to color in the emboss image.  I also use a side border to make it a cute anniversary or wedding card.  Hope you enjoy this card and that inspires you to add some color to your embossed images.
