Just before comeing back from our 'visit' to Calgary, my VISA got stolen! Downer! And we got in too late to use the complimentary water park at our hotel! Sucks! But we are home and I can get back to life as usual. Got a new credit card and my brother and his family are visiting and we will be going to Water World here in Denver...the biggest water park in the USA. Exciting! Thought I would share some up and down moments, including my sweet treat which was originally made for my spotlight from GCD Studios, but then it got picked up by Scrapbook News and Review for the July issue. One of my 'UP' moments. This tasty morsel measures only 3 inches high and is made entirely of scrapbook materials including the inside. (no whip cream filling, sorry) But looks good enough to eat!

What a great week to get things done. And I am done. Off to 'visit' the family again. So I will be incomunicado these next couple of days. But before I drop off the face of the earth, I wanted to share with you a peek at this great home decor item I made using my Cricut. It was inspired by Whimsical Scraps and Bugs Cricut challenge site of which I am a design team member. The challenge is to create something using an 'ampersand', I chose this great 3-D decor item. You have till this Sunday to submit your creations and possibly win a prize. Play along with us!

Look at how cute this 'Zoo Train' turned out. I made it for the challenge on Whimsical Scraps and Bugs. The fun thing about this is that I can add onto the train if I want to make it a room border or even for a pary, it is really cute. I am just in love with how this turned out. I did leave the train cars kinda plain but I did some great distressing techniques on them which makes them more rustic. The design came right out of my head, no pattern or nothing. Now if only I had a boy I would decorate his room in these cute animals.
