Apples & Pears

April 28, 2008

Well, it was a GORGEOUS day today! Our temps were in the low-70's by noon, and stayed at that comfortable temperature until the sun started to go down. It was SO nice. All we have had so far is a frigid the past three days have been wonderful. But, alas....all good things must come to an end, and we are going back to our cold spring again starting tomorrow. But...I have to look at the blessings from this. We still have snow pack that is melting very slowly. If we don't go through an abrupt warming will stay this way and we will have less to worry about when it comes to fire season. Last year's fire season was AWFUL to say the here is hoping we get to have a beautiful summer. That would more than make up for such a cold spring.

I thought I would share my April Provo Craft assignments tonight! This first project uses the new "Home Decor" cartridge and my Cricut Expression. I call it my Apples & Pears Party Set...pretty original, huh? The party set includes an invite, of course...and then a place mat, name card and a napkin ring. And look...I actually used some of the Martha tableware for the table! Who would have thought?!

And my other project for the month is this wedding card. It uses the new "Wedding" cartridge and my Cricut Expression again. The new "mini" carts are really neat. They don't have as many options to them, thus the lower price...but they included some fabulous images. Like this card.....the whole base image is part of the cartridge, as well as the bridge & groom image. Love it!

Well, that is about it for me tonight. Thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post! If you haven't thrown your name in the ring for my Martha RAK....just post a comment on that last post! I will be posting the RAK receivers on Thursday morning!

Also...I know that I still need to post photos from Yellowstone, but I just haven't had the time to edit them all so far. Hopefully soon I will get to it!
