Terry 50 States

Welcome to Erica's Room "My Favorite Cartridge" Blog Hop. You should have come here from Crafts by Amanda if you have not please head to Erica's Room to begin, there are prizes along the way, so make sure you go to each blog.

I am definitely a beginner with my Cricut and have LOTS to learn. These are some of my favorite new spring pics taken while my sweet granddaughters were here on one of our first warm spring days. Little Ella LOVED swinging resulting in some fun pics.

Love the way her hair is flying wildly in the wind and you can't help but love that smile :o)





I used the 50 States cartridge...so fun with a bird and flower for each state. I used the following flowers: Alabama (Camellia) 2" in light pink and 1 1/2" in yelllow and teal. I also used Deleware (Peach Blossom) 2" in dark pink and North Dakota (Wild Prairie Rose) 2" in light pink and yellow. My tree is freehand and embossed with a Tim Holtz folder. The cardstock is DCWV and the patterned paper is TPC Studio Woodland Whimsy Mini dots and Littlebird Sunset. Letters are American Crafts Thickers, Making Memories and Cloud 9 Design. Rhinestones are Michaels brand.

From here you go to Lucinda to see what she has done with the Paper Dolls cartridge. Here is the entire line up incase you get lost along the way.

Autumn said...

Adorable LOs!!!! Love how you used the flowers from the states...I have a bad habit of thinking "within the box" and thinking I can only use 50 states for state-related stuff. :) Thanks for showing me otherwise!

BTW, LOVE that you're "Grammy"; that's what my mom wanted to be called, but my son had other ideas, so she's "Ta Ta" instead. LOL
