For my mother's day present I got a new cricut cartridge- Stretch Your Imagination! I really wanted this one and my husband took me to Michael's to get it on sale, but they were sold out and I was told it would be discontinued! I decided to hold out and look for it online instead of buying a different one. Luckily we found it even cheaper online at Amazon and I'm soooo glad I didn't get another one instead. I will be quite busy with this for a while I think! It not only has different pictures for every season and holiday, it also has frames for cards and pictures! Check out this card I made for my sister's birthday- the bubble frame is one of my favorites! I also found all of these stickers at Target for 99 cents per sheet, which is where I got the cake sticker in the middle.

I'm a little late posting this, but here is the card I made for my mom for Mother's Day. I made it using the George & Basic Shapes cartridge and some different purple papers I had. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom border. I thought it turned out pretty nice and it's actually pretty versatile- it could be for any occasion.

One of our favorite things to do as a couple, and now as a family, is to go for a walk. It gives us some time to talk and enjoy the fresh air. Here is the scrapbook page I made for pictures of our first walk together as a family. I paper pieced the tree free-hand (great use for some of the green scraps I had) and used the New Arrival cartridge to cut out the little baby feet. I stamped the little baby feet for the "Out for a Walk" title. Although it's a little hard to see in this picture, I used white ink on the light blue background with a swirl stamp to make the "sky".
