A little dirt don't hurt!

Well, after at least 9 months of being here in the states, my brother and his family are once again overseas for several years. They just left this past week. We already miss them so much! We crammed as much fun and love into the time we had with them- especially in the last few weeks! We celebrated Easter, Mother's Day, Anna's birthday (a week early before they left). These photos are from a few days before they left at my mom's house. The kids had so much fun making mud pies, playing in dirt, playing with water and dirt, etc. They stayed out there playing for hours and hours!

So, in a swirl of birthday cake, homemade pizzas, last minute shopping trips, stolen hugs, muddy feet, cousin talk and more I snapped these photos!

Circle work!

It's time for me to share a few more things I've made for the Cricut Circle Blog- the exclusive blog for Cricut Circle members! Be sure to check out this link to find out more about The Cricut Circle~! There are so many awesome projects on the blog- all of them come with specific instructions, including cut sizes, etc. Many of the projects include step-out photos of how to make the projects, gypsy files that can be downloaded to recreate the project and sometimes video tutorials! Oh, and, the giveaways that Provo Craft provides for the Circle members on the blog would rock your world!

Ok, on with the projects- I can't share the instructions or cut sizes here though...

The first two cards were made using a newly released cartridge called Everyday Pop Up Cards:
