Fun with Puns!!!!

Good Monday Morning all!  First and foremost I must tell you that as of right now my comments are still not working. I am in the process of downloading Google Chrome and I really hope that fixes the problems. When I come onto a blog even my own I only have a few seconds to look at the comments and then my screen goes white. I am hoping to have it fixed with in the next few hours I will let you know. You have all been doing such awesome work and I have not been able to comment on it. Or even get to read my own comments that you all have left.  UGH!!!!

As you know by now Monday means many things, school, work, responsibility and once again a FCCB Challenge!!!

This weeks challenge is one that I find rather enjoyable. They are all enjoyable but this one fits my style. This weeks challenge is called Fun with Puns. Create a card or project using a funny pun somewhere on the project.

There are so many great punny titles out there that it was very hard to figure out what I wanted to do. Well I am finishing up scrapbook album that I am doing for my best friend who has a little girl and I thought that I would make another layout for her album, and that this challenge would be perfect for that project.

Here is my project:


The sad thing is that I cannot remember who sang the song “She’s my Cherry pie” ( which at this point in my life is highly inappropriate)  I am thinking Motley Crue but not sure. Anyway She’s My Sugar Pie worked out great!

The paper that I used was from one of the cheap stacks at Wal-Mart. I loved how it coordinated. She’s My was cut from Paper Lace and Sugar Pie was cut from American Alphabet.


The Cupcake came for Simply Charmed and then I used my Peachy Keen everyday assortment stamps for the face. I love those stamps!!

For the Photo corner I used Storybook cartridge and cut out the Fancy Corner on the page for the letter N.

Then finally I just used my white gel pen to add a little something to my title.

This page was fun to make and I am excited to give it to my bestie!!

She is my bestie because she truly loves and accepts me for who I am.  One funny story we have is one day we were driving in the car and I realized like many times before that I was squinting my eyes and that was causing wrinkles on my forehead so then I opened my eyes big to like “stretch the wrinkles” and then she started laughing and then I started laughing and she said she does the same thing. I hate those wrinkles between my eyes!! UGH!! It was funny though!

So go and start your projects and for fun if you want share with me one of your favorite bestie stories. I would love to hear them!!!! Hopefully I will be able to read them by tonight!!

Have a blessed day!!

FCCB Challenge Me Monday!!!

Good Monday Morning Everyone.......Did you all enjoy the Superbowl last night? I must admit that we do not really keep up with football but I grew up a Giants fan and whenever they are in it I watch. So it was pretty neat that the last Superbowl I watched was the one 4 yrs ago where they played and beat the Patriots and then being able to watch last night a repeat was awesome!! (Sorry for the Patriots fans)

Now onto today's challenge over at FCCB. Love is in the air..everytime I turn around..LOL!!! Well today's challenge is
exactly that, Love is in the air challenge. The challenge is to make a project with a heart on it and this weeks sponsor is ......

K ANDREWS STAMPS!!!! I am still new to stamps and I was super excited to use these stamps. I was lucky enough to use the Key to my heart mini stamp set that right now you can get for free when you purchase $25.00 or more worth of products. That is a great deal.

Here is what I made for the Challenge:

This is just a cute little heart shaped bag/purse. I thought that this would be great to fill with some Valentines day goodies for my 13 yr old daughter. She is not into the cutesy stuff anymore. Hello Kitty and Disney princesses dont really get her wheels going any more so I wanted to do something more mature and came up with this. I simply used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge ( love it by the way!!) for the bag and the front layer heart. Then I used some crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot. I love that ribbon it is the best!!!! Lastly I just added a cardstock handle so that it was good and sturdy.

So there it is and now it is your turn to work on your project for the challenge. Just make sure that you use at least one cricut cut and for this challenge use a heart on your project!!!

Have fun and Happy Monday!!!!!
