Here is my Entry for the Magazine contest that the Cricut Circle Blog is having. I thought it was going to be tough coming up with something but once I flipped through the book the ideas just kept coming. I decided to scrap the night our Blazer had to be towed because the water pump went out. I talked my DH in to going to my favorite scrapping store Roberts Crafts and when we came out it wouldn't start. He is a good mechanic but try as he might he couldn't get it running and it was getting late. I think it was almost 11:00 when he finally gave in a called a tow truck. The rise back to our house was quite a treat... the drive would not shut up he talked the entire 45 minutes and was probably still talking as he drove off. Any way here were the rules and the prize isn't too shabby either I am trying to win my way to an E2 anniversary edition.

Cricut crop

I think the biggest benefit to me joining the cricut circle has been the friendships that I have made. We have a group of ladies in my area that get together at least every 3-4 months and we scrap/card make. We share ideas and life stories and it has really brought me out of the shell I was once in. On April 9th we held one such event at one of the ladies churches.

This is Karendkrafter from the circle message board. She has become my best all time scrapping/ life time friend. We met for the 1st time almost a year ago at the Fall Scrapbook expo. She is just the best!

We spend the whole day, talking and crafting

We have contests and swaps

and meet cute new little ones.

Get inspiration from each other

and work on project of our own

It really was the best day ever and every get together is just as wonderful. Not sure what I would do without this group of wonderful ladies. Thanks Cricut Circle for getting us together!
