Something about my family, I have a 15 year old daughter, Taylor, that has been living with diabetes for almost 7 years now. I would love to say we have it under control, but truth is, teenage hormones and diabetes just don't seem to mix. I will also say that I love to imagine the day there will be a cure, we often joke here about having a big bonfire and burning all the diabetes stuff in our house!!! To just be done with it, that would be amazing. But the truth is we have some hard days here, high sugars and low sugars. SCARY stuff let me tell you. Being worried all the time when Taylor leaves the house alone, I mean what if she passes out somewhere, what if no one calls me, what if... Yeah the what ifs...
So that is the story here. So when I was asked to donate some of my holders for the Crop Out Diabetes fundraiser, of course I jumped at the chance! Sara has spent an amazing amount of time for this crop, and I think it is an awesome idea! She is having an online crop where you can win prizes, participate in challenges, and did I mention win prizes? All it takes is a donation of $5 (of course you can always donate more) to get in on the fun! http://www.cropoutdiabetes.blogspot.com/ And you will have a chance to win some of my holders for the Cricut!!! Hope some of you join in! Amy

My little man is obsessed with all things super hero, so of course when Superman and Batman cartridges came out for the Cricut I was all over them both!!! Now there was a problem, I had NO Superman paper for this layout (and as scrappers know, the right patterned paper is a must!) so I decided to design my own!!! I love how it turned out, and when I showed Jack he gasped and said "I love it". I don't think you can get a better compliment from a 3 1/2 year old!
All directions and the cut file for this layout are on Custom Crops here... Superman layout

Make your own patterned letters!
So I was laying in bed one night and couldn't fall asleep ( too much running through my head lately) and started to think about making my own patterns on letters with the Cricut pen holders. So the next morning I got up and made some designs to put on letters in Design Studio, and this is what I came up with! You can get the cut files and all directions on Custom Crops! Love layout
Of course those adorable kiddies are mine, taken over 3 1/2 years ago when they never sassed to each other!!!

One for my mom, one for my mom in law, now I need to make myself one! I'm loving these artist trays from 7 Gypsies!!! My mom in law had a jar full of old Cracker Jack toys and the second I saw them I knew that some needed to come out of the jar and be put on display! So I chose the little toys that most represented my kids (notice the bull with one of Jack's pictures lol).

So I have this one enabling friend, (she will probably read this and knows who she is lol)that talked me into a Silhouette, and can I just say they have some super amazing titles!!! One of my fav Cricut carts is Graphically Speaking for the titles, so I do hope Cricut comes out with another just like it!!! These are some pages I got done with the Silhouette that I wanted to share!
