I got it today!!
OK, now you all have got to go check out the new Cricut Cake give away on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog! Yes, they're giving away a Cricut cake machine and there's lots of ways to enter into the drawing!! While you're there, you also need to check out Provo Craft spokesperson Jinger Adams' video demo of the machine. She's also got some great tips for using the machine & other products. You don't want to miss out on this!!
I have been working on another Disney page, but it's a total scraplift of the lady on the Cricut messageboard who did 2 entire albums for Disney. I wanted to get something accomplished without having to try to think of something on my own & her one Goofy page is pretty cute & simple to complete, even though I don't have the Mickey & Friends cartridge, I'm improvising as much as possible. I do have the Mickey font & I'm really glad I have that one! I'll post it here when I'm done, but I'm not going to bother with putting on the Cricut site, since it is a nearly exact replica. LOL!!!
Now on to some spring flower pics, if that doesn't bore you too much. I just love spring & all the pretty flowers & smells they bring when they're in full bloom. They just make me happy! My small rhododendron is finally blooming the best it ever has in the 7 years we've been here. I'm lucky that it's even still alive after the deer chewed it to a nub one winter. That's why it has taken so long just to get to the point it's at today. I don't have a photo of it yet, but it's in full open bloom just today, but it's raining & I don't feel like trying to get a shot of it. I do, however, have this ginormous rhododendron that it taller than the gutters of my house! I just love this beautiful beast, but after it blooms this season, I will HAVE to cut it back hard because it makes it too difficult to clean those gutters out for my DH. I wish we could move this big thing without killing it, but that would be a challenge in itself. I hope to get some shots of it when it goes into bloom.
This is just a small section of daffodils that circle a huge boulder in our yard. I love the variety here. I just love spring & the more earlier the flowers, the better!
I just love daffodils & this particular variety is really pretty, but don't ask me if it's my favorite, cuz I don't think I've met a daf I didn't like!
This is my only Hellebore plant & this is the first year that I've gotten a bloom from it in the 3 years I've had it! The blooms are bigger than I thought they'd be, but that's a good thing!
Well, I think I'll go work on my Disney page & relax for a bit. I'm a bit tired from the yard clean up yesterday.
God Bless & have a great day!
