I'm so excited I got an award!!!  Terri over at gave it to me. :)  Thank you, Thank you!!!

I have recieved other awards before, but this is the first one I was able to post on my blog in a timely manner..Such as Misha over at  (Thanks Misha!) and Jennifer at (Thanks Jennifer!!).  All of these lady's are very talented, sweet and inspirational.  You gotta check out their blogs!!

Now for the rules of this award.

Post this wonderful award on your blog.  Share this award with 10 other people you think have 
Cricut-tastic blogs.  Then share 5 cricut related things about yourself.

1.  I got my cricut Christmas 2009.
2.  I've persuaded 4 friends they need a cricut which resulted in them purchasing their own.  :) (Gotta share that addiction)lol!!
3.  I now own about 37 carts. and think I need I said it's an addiction.
4.  My husband thought the cricut would be just a passing phase...boy was he wrong.  He now thinks it was a good decision. 
5.  I couldn't get through the instructional video that went with the cricut...I literally kept falling asleep, so I learned how to use it by watching youtube videos like Above Rubies Studio and My Pink Stamper.

Here are just some of the blogs I think are CRICUT-TASTIC...

My pink Stamper Challenge #5 Make a 3D project

Here's a quick project I made from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more while my friend Karen was working hard on her scrapbook pages.  I had a creative mind block, so I thought I'd make something fast.  I love purses and I wish I was talented enough to sew them.  Karen sews sooooo maybe she'll teach me.....HINT, HINT.

Here's the link for this challenge

My Pink Stamper Challenge #8 Make a Summer Theme project

One of the things we like to do is go to Anchorage in the summer and drive to Seward and Soldotna.  The drive is amazing!!  The one thing besides the beautiful mountains is the wildlife we see; dull sheep, whales, moose, and even caribou (along the side of the road between Kenai and Soldotna).  So this card represents summer for us in Alaska.


DCWV paper
SU paper, brads, and metal frame

My Pink Stamper Challenge #7 Make a Scrapbook Page

We didn't get started until late afternoon here in Alaska, so most of the challenges were already started.  We  did ours out of order...which ever we were inspired to do first.
I wanted to get started on my 11 year old's baby book, so I cropped photos and made the very first page to it last night.  It was fun to go through the pictures with her and tell her the story of when she was born...It was one of the happiest days in my life. :)  

All SU paper, ribbon, scallop punch and pearl accent
My cricut friend's Storybook cart.
Serenade cart.

My Pink Stamper Challenge #1 Cupcake card

Wow what a fun National Scrapbook Day.  My friend and I stayed up until 3am.  Can you believe it?!   We didn't even realize it.  Then I was woken up this morning by my 3 year old shaking my head saying "Get up mom, Get up mom, It's breakfast time!!!".  My husband and 11 year old soon followed with a plate of breakfast, wishing me "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!"  I was sooooo exhausted, but it was very sweet.  I love my family.
Well we decided to do some of the My Pink Stamper Challenges for National Scrapbook Day, and we will be doing more projects soon as Karen arrives (my cricut friend).  She's my friend who is just as addicted to paper crafts as I   
O.K.  so here is the card I made for this challenge.  I made this with my gypsy.  I was going to put a face on the cupcake, but decided not too.
