2S4U -- Laura's sketch #16's been awhile since I tried one of the 2S4U sketches, and I had some time yesterday to play...thank goodness. I was beginning to feel withdrawal symptoms! Glad to get away from Christmas Cards too! I had a hard time with this one...discarded a couple before settling on this one.

CS: unknown
PP: unknown
Rhinestones: Martha Stewart
Die cut shapes: Plantin Alphabet (Cricut)
Buttons: Walmart
Stickers: Doodlebug Designs

Look what I got for Christmas! I was so shocked...I had no idea my husband even knew what a Cricut was! What a great guy, eh?! It's funny because whenever he ventures up into my craft room, he "complains" that there is no way I can get anything else into that room!
To be honest, I did have to rearrange things in order to make room on my desk for it...glad to do it though. Hope your Christmas was as exciting! I took some pics of my craft room, and of some projects Lexi did with the Cricut...which I'll try to post later. I have to work nights tonight, and I want to be ready to go by 7:30 so I don't have to miss one minute of the IIHF World Juniors Hockey game tonight...Canada vs USA...our team is absolutely ROCKING this year. Best hockey I've seen in a while...besides my son's games of course! LOL!
