Cricut: The Official Blog
Sunday, April 24, 2011
Welcome to a new week, and new blog candy!!! (See below for last week's winner.) This week, we are giving away a cartridge!!!! Who would like to win the Elegant Cakes cartridge?? It's not just for the Cake machine - it'll work in your Expression or baby bug too! Just make sure you're a follower of this blog, and then leave a comment on today's post. Plus come back each day this week for more chances.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  Ours was fantastic!  Our family, including Paul & Becca & kiddos, went to church, and then we came back here for lunch and an Easter Egg hunt.  The kiddos loved it, and each found about 20 eggs.  Here's a few little Easter pics for you...

My Emily. I'll scrap this on my "R is for Rabbit" layout.

She loved the card I made her.  See yesterday's post if you missed it.

Samantha, Emily & Kainoa check out their loot.

A little bonus - Kainoa finds a slug on his egg.  Yum!


Also, we are VERY excited about the launch of the new E2 in less than 24 hours!!!  Who is staying up to watch it on HSN?  Me, me, me!!!  We're lucky in California, because it'll come on at 9pm our time, which is 12 midnight Eastern time.  Be sure to tune in!!  And here is the layout that Nana Susan submitted for the contest.  Isn't it just too cute?  Lovin' her Tea Party theme!!  Good luck to all who entered!!



And finally, the winner of last week's blog candy is....

Queenie said...

    "I think your card is hilarious and cute. Happy Easter."

Congrats, Queenie.  You win any in-stock kit of your choice OR 5 sets of directions.  Email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com to claim your prize.
