Project One Hundred Seventy

Hello friends .....
SO I am going to explain this project ... which might take a while. If you want to skip the back story scroll down to you see the picture ...
still here perfect .....
So I started my paper crafting life back in 2007 ...
I saw the ads for a machine called a Cricut ....
I had to have one ..... Black Friday 2008 Wal-Mart had them for a great price .... my husband bought me one excited ... took it our of the box followed all the instructions .... and my paper didn't cut and what did cut stuck to the mat so bad it ripped coming off ... well I have no patience ...yes ... I know ... I will work on that (insert eye roll here). Well I told the machine what I thought of it in so many words and that is where I left my Cricut until 2010. I was border at home .... so I googled How to videos for the Cricut .... I found someone who called themselves My Pink Stamper .... I sat there watching her videos for hours .... went to my closest craft store with a huge list of must haves .... came home and looked up this company Stampin Up .... found my closest consultant and the rest was history ..... I found more blogs and started stamping and more things to buy .... them I started Disney Scrapping .... which I eventually changed the name to My Mouse Dreams.
Well Robyn ..... (Yes, in my head I call her Robyn) .... who I have been following ever since that day. Recently started back as a Stampin Up Demonstrator. So she challenged us to make a card using just the Neutrals.
Here is what I came up with
Paper Used all Stampin Up
Flowers are Retired set Printed Petals
The sentiment is from August Paper Pumpkin Kit
Are actually a bag of buttons from the Holiday catalog 3 years ago
Deck the Halls Collection ...
This tells me I need to buy some more recent sets LOL

Project One Hundred Sixty-Seven

Hi Mouse Friends!!
So, I am a proud Cricut Expression owner ... I loved my Expression .... but then I kept
seeing all these really awesome SVG cuts ....
What is an SVG file I found myself researching. Well, I was very sad. I found out the
machine that I loved didn't cut SVG files. SO I started looking into buying a different companies machine so I could cut them. While I was researching a new machine
I found an awesome SVG site.
I started going to their wonderful blog hops and earning and buying their files ... yet I had no machine to cut them with. Well finally, right before I was buying the "other" machine Cricut came out with the EXPLORER!!!
Now, the machine is not perfect ... I would love if it would allow an offset on
its print and cut images ....
but ...
I get to use all these SVG files finally ....
So today's project is for one of my favorite SVG sites
the theme for this month's challenge is Anything Goes
Here is what I came up with
Who doesn't love Sour Apple Jolly Ranchers
SVG Files Used
with the apple treat box, I only used the apple cut itself and not the box
Jaded Blossom Products used
The red paper is Real Red from Stampin Up
The apple pattern paper is from Recollections
PS side note ... someone on Jaded Blossom's Facebook page told me I had to get the Picture It Set. It was on sale a while back, so I got it. I love this set!!
You still have two days to link up so come and join the fun!
