I spent my cropping time organizing my acrylic stamps-it took me forever!! After a few trials then I did n ot like, I ending up putting my stamps in between 2 8x8 transparancies and slipped them in an 8x8 album. I am still not satisfied with the outcome, but it is better than the ziplocs I was using before. I would love to find a way to store them with the orignal backing so I can see the stamp's image better. It is definately still a work in progress.

A seagull, the second day at Oceanside. It was not sunny today!
I just love the beach in Oregon, no matter what the weather, I always have a great time. It is only 1-2 hours away, depending on where you go, I really should go more often! I am the type of person who can just hang out on/at the beach all day long and do nothing. I love the smells, sights, sounds of the beach. I don't need all the commercialization to have fun. I really enjoy the small beaches, they are less crowded. I don't need to shop, just put my feet in the sand, even if it is cold and wet!!!
The St. Patrick's Day card, was made with my cricut as well, what a fun project. I used the Design Studio and my George Cartridge and used the odd-shaped heart 4 times, rotated them in 4 directions, used the "J", welded them together and voila, a shamrock! The rotations are 45, 135, -45, and -135 degrees. I also rotated my "J" -8 degrees to get it a little angled for the stem. I HAD to use stickles, used them to make the vein in the leaves. I am also really loving ric rac ribbon right now.
