Something wicked this way comes...

(Okay, just so we are all on the same page, when I said 'wicked' I of course meant that in the way they say "wicked" in the world of Harry Potter! You know, like "ultra cool!", "fanTASTIC!!!" and the like. Great! Now that we have that settled...)

Brace yourself for: Something new! Something fun!! Something educational!!!

Our lovely Guest Artist is BACK!!! With a special Thank You!

It s a special day here at Travels Through Life!!!

Our favorite Guest Artist is back!

Marcia Macsisak the owner of the blog: Cards With Marcia
was kind enough to let us show of her latest card even before her own blog has it!
She even included the original sketch she came up with for the vacuum cleaner.
While you cannot really see it the 'Thank You' above is in gold foil!
What is amazing is that the vacuum is not a Cricut Shape!
Well, it is a variety of shapes cut using the Cricut but not a pre-made
design, that is why this card is amazing!!!
This was the original sketch of what Marcia wanted to vacuum to look like.
I think she was spot on with the final product!
Keep your fingers crossed!  I'm begging Marcia to make another one so
I can video it and share how she did it with everyone!
Come on!  Post some encouraging comments and also check out Marcia's Blog too!!!
(and are welcome!  Thanks for the fabulous card!!!)

Life is better...

Yesterday I had the privilege to attend a wonderful Close To My Heart event; Making Connections.

One of things we did was to crush one of the Close To My Heart My Crush Books. We used the My Crush For Her book  (Z3081 $10.95) and made 2 layouts and 6 cards!

I plan on doing a Workshop on this soon!

Join my Close To My Heart team: Travels Through Life and I will show you how to have your own My Crush Book Workshop!!!

Matter of fact, if you join now depending on where you live you might still be available to attend one of the CTMH Making Connections events near you!!!

Email me for more info or go here to join my team!
