Surfer Boy

Hey Everyone!
My nephew loved the boogie board but only wanted to play with it at the edge of the water. 

Heading Home

Hey Everyone!
This layout is from my trip to South Caroline in February 2011. 
We had such a great time but the road trip back was too long! 

Barn Treat Box using Silhouette Cameo

Today is my day to post on the The Bugbytes!

Today I wanted to show you a treat box that I made for my nephew's up coming birthday party. It is a farm theme. I went to Silhouette Online Store and looked for a barn box, with no luck.

Then I saw this box and thought that maybe I could make a barn out of it. 
So I looked for a barn that I could use and found this image. 

After purchasing both images I opened them in the Silhouette Studio program. When I opened the box I rotated it a little to make the most of my 12x12 paper. This image will be cut in red.

Next I opened the barn. I do not need all the pieces included...

 I deleted the pieces that I did not need.

I made the barn pieces small enough to be close to the size that I think I needed. Moved both pieces together. Then zoomed way in and adjusted the size of the pieces to fit on the side of the box.

This is just the pieces filled in with color so you can get idea of which ones to group together to cut out.

 Then just group the same colors together and cut out the pieces.

 The finished box!!!

 I hope I was able to inspire you today!
Until next time!

Football Name Plate

Hey Everyone,
Another name plate to share with you. I used my new cameo on this one and love all the new fonts that I now have access to with the cameo.

Independence Day ~ 2011

Hey Everyone! Since today is the 4th of July and we really didn't do any of the normal 4th of July celebrations I thought I would scrap pictures from last year. 
Then I saw this layout on Out on A Limb Scrapbooking Facebook page. 
I knew it would be perfect for my pictures. 
Out On A Limb always has great inspiration.

As you know I got my Silhouette Cameo yesterday so I wanted to play around with cuts from the Silhouette Store. 
The Independence Day, Star and Journaling block are all from the store. 

Cameo FINALLY arrived!!

I ordered my cameo on May 27, 2012. 
After 38 days of waiting (it was on backlog)... It is here!

Right out of the box, I had to decorate it!
