When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Last posting for the night...

Okay, this will be my last posting for the night then I'm heading out to bed.  Yeah, I was busy cutting again for the last two night and I honestly have only few hours of sleep.  Playing along with those fun challenges are pretty addicting plus it took my mind off from missing my DH so much.  I don't know with you, but it also took away the crappy feeling of having a stomach flu.  I must admit that in between cutting and making those cards, I would stop and rest.

This last posting is a 2-page layout, which I was planning to submit as my entry to Cooking with Cricut challenge - 3 Flowers.  I was a bit disappointed about this.  I was ready to post my project Mr.  Linky decided to close the submission when in fact as I was downloading the pictures off my SD card, it says I still have 1hr and 23mins.  So to make the story short, this entry didn't make it to the deadline.  I can't argue with Mr. Linky, right!?  One thing nice though was, I was able to make another sweet and cute scrapbook page for my daughter Ella.  Pictures are to follow since I was really in a hurry to do these pages and not have enough time to go through all the pictures.

I may not made it to the submission at Cooking with Cricut, but I am submitting this to Paper Cutz Challenge.
The rule is make any kind of project with your preferred theme and colors. 

I hope I will be able to make it next time At cooking with Cricut.
Thanks for looking peeps!  Love you all and thank you so much for your lovely and inspiring words.  It makes me want to create more...
Happy Crafting everyone.

You have really cute creative ideas. We just recently moved to the San Antonio area from Dallas and have hopped in the car a few times to make that trek to IKEA. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one to drive crazy distances for inexpensive high quality furniture.
