Some ebay ventings, and concert pics!!!!




Well, I have learned a very valuable lesson in the last 2 weeks. Let me tell you the story. I have been really wanting to get the E2 so I started looking on ebay for one and low and behold there was plenty of them on there and many of them were selling for right around $200.00. Most of them were being sold by proudparents who I am suspecting to believe is actually provocraft. I have bought from them before and gotten Cartridges at killer deals. So anyway I started bidding on a machine and thought at first I was bidding on one from Proudparents and then quickly realized I was bidding on one from someone else. I got a little nervous and quickly looked up their feedback. Well they had great feedback and even had a very satisfied customer who had just received her E2 and only paid $220.00. So I felt alittle bit better and waited to see if I was going to win. Well guess what I did win!!!!! For right around $200 I was so excited!!!!!!!!! Then last week I get an email from ebay saying that they have removed the listing and that I need to open a case and get the money back!!!
My lesson was to pay better attention and not flip back and forth through so many sellers at a time. I am really bummed and am now looking for an E2 that is priced around that range!! I know that that is a long shot!! But I am hoping that I can find one.
Enough of my venting now onto the sweet stuff that makes me smile!!!
Recently in our town the christian artist Britt Nicole came and did a concert. Well she was great and has such a wonderful spirit about her!! She was very sweet when my daughter met her and she even prayed with Malia before we left. It was awesome!! Before Britt Nicole came on stage there was the local Christian bands that played some songs of their own. Well one of them happens to have our old worship leader as the lead singer and my kids just love their music so I took some shots of them worshipping to the Lord during the concert and it was so cute!!! My little man just cracks me up!!!
Seeing my daughter worship just brings tears to my eyes. She truly loves the Lord and
he is using her in a powerful way. She is going to go forth and do more for the kingdom than I ever dreamed of doing.
Well thanks for listening. I promise I will be posting another project pretty soon. After I thought I won that machine I sold my old one so no matter what I have to buy a new machine this coming week . Whether it is an expression or an E2 I need a machine. I will have the new Cricut Art Philosophy cart next week!!!!! So I will be posting about it for awhile!!!! Have a blessed day!!!

Disney Layouts using SVG’s

Good Morning!! I wanted to share some layouts with you today that I made for my Disney Album. These layouts I did not cut from cartridges but from SVG files. They were a lot of fun and I love how they turned out. I am just going to post them and then I have to paint my porch today so I cannot spend to much time in the blogging world the paint is calling my name So here they are I hope they bring inspiration so some of you!!Here is a double page layout I made from svg files. The Lilo and Stitch font I traced from an image on Google then the surf board I traced also from Google images it was a coloring page image.  The flower and leaves were an svg I hadThis next layout is of my son Matthew he was blessed enough at Disney’s Hollywood Studio to be chosen as a Jedi Trainee for the Jedi Training school.

using Silhouette Studio files with Ecal and MTC

Good Evening, I planned on posting this a little earlier but my day got away from me. That doesn't happen to anyone else does it? lol! Anyway I have a quick post today with a video tutorial.



I absolutely LOVE the Silhouette Online Store. It is awesome and the files that are on there are awesome too! Well I no longer have the Cameo because in the my last post you were able to see that I decided to keep the Sizzix Eclips 2. Well I had already subscribed to the silhouette store and had purchased several files. So I knew I needed to figure out a way to use them.



I had actually seen a post on a forum describing what to do. I went ahead and tried it but had to tweak a few things to get mine to work. Here is a video that shows you how to use those files so you don't feel like you wasted your money.






Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!!
