Excitement is in the air (or at least the UPS truck!)

Happy Friday, my scrappy friends!

I'm back, and though it's been a long week, I'm starting to feel a little normal again!  Thank you all for your condolences and kind words!

This is just a short post to get me back into the swing of things, and share some things I have created over the last two weeks.

I made this little bag using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, but I can't wait to get my Big Shot to make these with, since I know it will go so much faster.  The squirril is from Create a Critter, and the tag is EK Success's Curly Label punch. I have two people in my life who are having baby girls this month, and this little creation is destined for one of them!
Paper: Designer paper is from my stash; all other paper is Stampin' Up!, which is cuts awesomely on the Cricut.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo

This is the gift bag I made for my husband's birthday last week.  The font comes from the A Child's Year cart (one of my favorite fonts), and the arrow is from Going Places. 
Paper: Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip & Whisper White; Orange striped paper is scrap from my stash.
Ink: Chocolate Chip

And finally, a picture of my favorite creation of all time with my favorite husband:
Isn't he cute?  Since it was his dad's birthday, I let him wear a shirt that says "Rad like Dad".  I am blessed!

Before I go, I have to say that I am uber excited, because I just found out that my two (yep, that's right, I ordered enough to fill two boxes!) boxes are in route from Stampin' Up! and will be here Monday!  Hence the title of this post.  I can't wait! Come on, Brown Man! 

Thanks for looking, and please leave a comment to let me know you were here!

Until next time,
Jessica
P.S.  Don't forget the new Idea Book & Catalog was just released!  Check out my site using the link at the top of the page to get all of your scrapping goodies, and if you are in town, plan to stop by my house on the 17th sometime between 2:00 & 4:00 to get a book, see some great projects, and make a couple for yourself! If you aren't in town, contact me and I will get one in the mail to you!

Got to love the man in brown, I nearly kissed mine when he delivered my catty in June! YOu are going to love the BIg Shot like you I am a Cricut fan nd i used my Tgs Bags and boxes Cart lot......untill I got my Big Shot. SO much easier to produce multiple of the same "goody" . I still use my cricut for boxes if its one we dont have or if I need certain size but I wouldnt give up my Big shot for anything!

Love you Bags..so need to get my hands on Create a critter they look so cute! Keep up the great work and have fun with your little one enjoy every moment it goes way to fast. ( Trust me I have 3 , 4 and under and I dont know where the time went)
