My First Challenge !!

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I am excited to say that im finally entering my first challenge! This is one of my New Years resolutions, and i'm happy to say that i have done it!!! Now i just have to keep it up. For my first challenge i went to Fantabulous Cricut and found just the one i wanted to start with. The challenge was to incorporate something sweet on your project (i.e. ice cream, candy, cake etc.)and i knew just what i wanted to do.
I used the Smiley Cards cartridge on my Gypsy to cut this cute piece of pie. She is cut at 3 1/2 inches,and i used the "seeing spots" folder for the cuttlebug for the cherry insides, bacground is from Gypsy Wanderings , inked edges and ribbon from Michaels! "Sweet" sentiment is from My Pink Stamper. I hope you guys like it, and wish me luck!! now its off to figure out another challenge!!!

One of the things on the list is to dedicate more time crafting and blogging my if only i could find more time (do they sell that anywhere???)another thing i have been wanting to do is to participate in challenges, need to keep my creative juices flowing!! I also changed up my blog a little until i come up with a design i would like and a quirky new title, for Christmas i got an expression (green one) so i am excited for all things to come, but in the mean time join me as i start a new year with lots of possibilities. im leaving you with a few pics of things i created over the holidays.
