Happy 5th Birthday Cricut!

In the beginning of the year PC announced the 5th birthday for the Cricut.  New logos, tools, and machines were made to celebrate this occasion.   Next week, the release of the new E2 machine will debut on HSN.   As much as I desperately NEED want this machine, it's probably not going to happen for me.  It's ok though, my five other machines still work!! Hahahahhaha!!!   Addicted??  Yes, I am!

Jinger Adams, Spokesperson for Provo Craft announced a contest a few weeks ago to win this amazing machine.  We needed to create a birthday layout and mail it in to her.   She will be picking five winners, who will WIN THIS NEW E2 MACHINE!!!

She will be showing the winning layouts on air, Tuesday April 26th during each airing.  Will I be moving away from the TV all day......NOPE!

this is what I am doing.....wishing!!!

Want to see the whole layout?

Well, here it is!!

This is a 12x12 scrapbook layout
I used Core'dinations, AC, Recollections, SU! papers
Birthday Bash for the balloons {6"}
Sweet Treats "make a wish" {2"}
Storybook for the topnote shape {1.5"}
Plantin Schoolbook for the star {.5"}
Handcut paper flags
Fiskars border punches
SU! corner punch
SU! mini pom trim
Heidi Grace rub on
Bakers Twine from the Twinery
Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots
3D foam, ink, buttons, ATG and Zip Dry glue

I cut the balloons out of acetate at first so that I could lay the twine down in place, but not have anything in the background.

Inked around this to make it stand out and soften the edges.  Added a star to the "i" for more dimension.

This is probably my favorite part of this layout.   The tab I made to journal on slides up from behind the photo mat.  It makes the layout a little interactive and it also keeps the page looking clean when it's closed. 

Do I stand a chance?!  Probably not, but I still needed to enter.

Absolutely you stand a chance! I love the layout and the tabbie pull-up thing! Was this a contest for Cricut Circle Club members only? Just wondering. Good luck to you!!--Pat N.

It is a humorous little personally to express something about my own connection to use . We隆炉re really impressed with the design of these earbuds 隆陋 each one looks like a little turbine engine, and the signature lower-case 隆庐b隆炉, along with the bright red cable, will ensure that everyone knows [url=]beats by dre headphones[/url] exactly what you隆炉re listening through . Here隆炉s the close look for you guys . 5 [url=]beats by dr dre[/url] billion people live in 隆庐urban environments隆炉 . There隆炉s a lot of talented people out here who don隆炉t get the shine they deserve: Pac Div, U-N-I, Med and Rocc C and Oh No from Oxnard, and a bunch cheap beats studio more I隆炉m forgetting at the moment . But the Monster Beats by Dr Dre massive [url=]beats by dre headphones uk[/url] will be well chuffed . Dre headphones [url=]beats by dre uk[/url] are pretty overpriced . The density of the human voice is not bad, definitely not thin, the meat is not really feels good to listen to Leslie tooth sound basic . The new venture [url=]beats by dr dre headphones[/url] is a combination of many things.[/p]
