my new toy...

Last week was my birthday... and Mother's Day.  My hubby got me (...errr.. I bought and told him it was my present..) a new cricut.  I'd used one a few weeks back to design the treat bags for my daughter's birthday party (which isn't even until September) but only had time to design one bag on my friend's cricut... so of course I needed my own machine to finish...right?
Here's the treat bag I designed a few weeks back..  I used the Once Upon a Princess Cartridge and all Close To My Heart Products:  Cardstock:  Bamboo, Blush, Hollyhock, Chocolate, Sweet Leaf and White Daisy and Vanilla Cream
Embellishments:  Hollyhock glitter brad, sparkle, glitz glitter, Colonial White designer ribbon.
Inks:  same as cardstock colors

The layout is what I made last week when I finally had time to take the poor cricut out of the box... it sat for several days!  I used both the Once Upon a Princess and Paisley cartridges with my CTMH supplies.  Sorry about the glare on the photo- I also took photos with the pictures on the layout but I really wanted to show the "purpose" of the layout which was these dress-up photos!
Supplies:  Animal Cookies Level 2 paper pack, Cardstock:  Citrus Leaf, Blush, Brown Bag, Lilac Mist, Spring Iris, Sweet Leaf, Tulip
Emellishments:  Designer Glitter brads, White Daisy Just Blooms, Color Ready Alphabet (Bold), Sparkles
Stamps:  Small Chocolate alpha
I believe if you click on the photo you will see a larger picture for more detail!!  But just in case- here's a close up of the unicorn. 
Hope you enjoy this little peek into what I've been up to lately!
Also-  I will have some kits of this layout available at the Greater Galesburg Day Craft Show in Galesburg, MI the day before Father's Day.

Love the unicorn! Tell me your secret for getting the super thick CTMH cs to cut so clearly!
