Dinosaur project


My youngest son had to do a dinosaur project for his class at school. I used Dinosaur Tracks, my Gypsy and My expressions. Kaelob loved that mom had those neat toys. He asked if he could have them when I died.

Pink challenge for Cricut Circle


Hi. Long time no post. Pushed myself to create something to post. Have done other things and will post soon.
This is for the Cricut Circle weekly challenge. PINK.
Yes I caved and joined the circle and yes I caved and got the Imagine. We thought I should have one nice thing from the insurance settlements for my parents.

Didn't turn out how I invisioned but for the first challenge I have done in forever, it will have to do.
