This was a freebie for the week, a couple weeks ago. I decided to use the images to make a layout for our recent trip to North Carolina, to see my parents. This picture is on top of Mount Mitchell. My boys pushed my father up the path in his wheelchair, so he could go to the top with us. Whew, you should have seen those muscles straining. My father is not a heavy person, but you are doing some serious uphill climbing! They made him so happy! Marti has chosen our challenge for this week over at BBTB2. It is all about Road Trips. tfl.

I think you really have to look for the pumpkins, but they are there, lol. Laura has chosen to use a pumpkin on our card or project, this week over at BBTB2.

I was having issues with my Explore. The first thing that happened was my writing/scoring clamp was loose. I got the instructions to fix it, which my husband was wonderful to help me with. I tried to print and cut again, but my Explore couldn't find my registration marks. It kept looking for it about 1 1/2 inches beyond the starting point. Anyway, Cricut sent me a new Explore Air 2. Isn't that great customer service. Thank you so much to Cricut and K Hard, who was a big help.

Susan is our amazing design sister in charge of the challenge over at BBTB2 and it is all about Easter!! I bet you are seeing bunnies, chickies and eggs all over the place! I made my card from scratch, from a card I saw on Pinterest. Jayne made it and she was one of our designers a while ago. She is soooo talented!! The card base, eggs and banner are from Art Philosophy, the bunny from Create a Critter, the grass is from Artiste, the sunshine and clouds are from Pooh and Friends. I made a tent card, using a little different technique than Jayne. I cut two tags and attached them to a fold, so I would have different sections graduated inside. Then added the grass, bunnies and eggs. It was lots of fun.
I just barely got this card done. I had a good amount of stress lately and medicated myself with sugar, which gave me a nice virus that I was dealing with most of the week. I watched my grandchildren for a day this week, also. Well, here it is, just under the wire. tfl.
