So Excited!!!!

I have a couple of reasons to celebrate tonight!  First, LOOK just a couple away from 50 followers! Send your friends!  I think I may have a small give away for my first 50 fans! Wouldn't that be fun?

Second, I actually made a project tonight for Provo Craft!  They did a "sneak peek" of the newest cartridge coming Create-a-Critter 2!  The first one was so adorable and awesome, I am certain #2 will be a must have too!  But, you see I have put myself on cartridge restriction... no more cartridge purchases for 2012.  but that doesn't mean I can WIN one!? :)  I'm sneaky, and optimistic like that you know...? Anywhoooo... I used the sneak peek samples they put on Cricut Craft Room just for the contest and come up with this:
I am super excited about how it came out, considering how EASY it was!  Don't you think I am a contender?  Okay well if not, don't burst my bubble! Let me live in denial. LOL
Sadly the picture doesn't do it justice, but it was the best I could do tonight.  It had to be submitted by Midnight... and I barely made it!  Nothing like waiting till the LAST possible minute, but that's how I roll pretty often.
The entire project uses only 6 things:
Twine
Wreath Base
Glue
Pop up foam
Colored card stocks
and Cuttlebug with embossing folders
UPDATE: You need a Cricut too, I guess that makes 7 things. LOL

I seriously had a blast making this!
