Cleaned up Craft Place

 Here is my crafting space.  Table in the center still needs cleaned off but better than it was before.
 My computer desk is L shaped with my two computers, the cricut, and Imagine all having a space.
My dear hubby made the peg boards for my and bought the cupboards and counter top for my last craft room.  He moved these to this wall without complaining, I probably should not move this room around again.  Hope you all enjoy the pictures it has been a long week of moving and cleaning but I think the end result is great.

Imagine Gypsy testing

I was one of the testing team for the new download.  Well when I tried it the first time I got through the first turn back on your gypsy and then it went to a screen that said "do not turn off".  I waited for it to finish for over 4 hours and it was still on that screen.  Decided after reading some other posts that I was froze.  Went to bed and tried again in the morning.  Again waited for 4 hours and nothing, ( had turned off my firewall). Well decided to give it another try and this time I just picked the last two download and left off the gypsy content one.  Well that loaded quick and just fine.  Had to go to help menu and go through that to get the last to load.  My Imagine loaded just fine the first time.  Everything is cutting and printing as it should and I am happy to get it loaded.  Would of liked to see more options to work with the images like being able to move them around, but I will wait, I know good things will come.

The challenge was to use white paint, metal and a snow flake cut.  I painted the background paper with white paint, the snow flakes were cut from the Holiday Cake cart and the snowflake brads in the middle of the snow flakes are metal.  Hope you like the layout.

Card for Provo Craft card making contest!

I really had fun making this card.  I didn't come up with the style of this card, I got the out of a book, but I did figure out how to cut it on my Cricut.  I really love how this came out.  I had fun deciding what I would silhouette and deciding what went where.

Crafts I did today!!!

Here are the things I made today at Noelle's.  Busy day 9am to 3pm but I am excited with all we finished.  Here are the pictures.
