Colorado Bound!!

Our Spring Break plans are made! We're heading to our family's "Happy Place" - Colorado! In honor of this exciting prospect, I updated my scrapbook frame in my home office last night:

I got a Gypsy for my birthday last June, but haven't used it too much. I think I've been a little intimidated! But lately I've needed to weld letters and such, and have found that it's not too difficult to use! I love that I can use it anywhere, create a bunch of layers, use several cartridges on the same project, have the ability to weld, and save the project until I'm ready to put my Cricut machine to work. My inspiring decoration above was made completely on the Gypsy and was pretty easy!

Supplies used on my frame:
  • Cricut Camp Out Solutions Cartridge (mountains, bears, mountain lion)
  • Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge preloaded on Gypsy (sun)
  • Cricut Old West Cartridge ('Colorado Bound' letters)
  • DCWV sky paper
  • Bazzill cardstock
Usually the ribbon across the frame with the mini clothes pins is toward the bottom, but I wanted Colorado Bound to be in the sky, so I flipped it. I'm happy it's versatile like that. BTW, my husband made the frame for me. I wanted the Creative Memories white frame when it came out, but my husband said he could make one for much less. So, that's what he did!

Well, that's it for now. I'll try not to be such a stranger and post more often. The truth is I've been busy visiting all of your wonderful blogs!! Keep your creativity coming!! I LOVE IT!!!
