Old Supplies

Well after getting 2 new Cricut cartridges today (Paper dolls and Home Accents) and a silent setter for little grommets (special at Roberts for 1.99, had to ask if that was the right price, I love to find a bargain!) I did a scrapbook page and didn't use any of it. I'm trying to use up my old supplies and I had an old header that said Summer Days so I did a page with my GD and GS playing in the sprinkler. I'll try to get it up loaded tomorrow as it is very late now. I also found a neat box to store and dispense ribbon at Walmart. I'll try and show you that too.
Won't have much time today I am going to St George to meet up with hubby, today is his come home day, yeah! Of course going to St. George means I might have time to go by Michaels Crafts...hmmmm what do I need. And it also means a good dinner out as there is not much selection in my little town. It was a big adjustment when we moved here to not be able to go to all our favorite restaurants. We were use to CA where any type of food was just minutes away. There are a couple of places here that are good...just not the big selection we were used to having......and salad I sure miss the fresh crispy salad. What I do find strange is that avocados which come from CA are about 1.50 in CA and .50 here. Go figure.

Our First Baby

Here is a picture of our first baby alpaca (cria) can you see why I love em so much! His name is Black Odyessy and we call him Odie for short. He is almost 6 months so he will be having to leave the girls soon.

Day 1

Today I decided to start blogging about scrapping and alpacas and anything else that is going on in my life. It may seem like a strange combo but since my grandchildren have moved away these seem to be the 2 things that keep me busy.

I just bought a new cricut last week and after several years of not scrapping (I will get into the why not of that at a later date, maybe) I am totally motivated again. I have the 2 new cartridges that come with the expresion machine but have ordered 2 more and can't wait till they get here. So far I have made some bags and a couple of scrapbook pages, but I also plan on using it to make a banner and some signs for our Alpaca ranch. I am going to post pics of the few things I've done and hopfully you will see some progress as I get better.
