I have 't done any scrapping since my last post.  I have been having too much fun with my children and grand children visiting.  The last one goes home December 3rd.  We had a great Thanksgiving just being together.  Today, we went shopping for the kids winter clothes.  I usually do this myself, but as long as the mom's were here, I just let them go to town.   I ordered my deep cut blade and housing for my explore, a new blade and a cartridge.  Had my mom buy me a new printer as a Chanukah gift.  I am shopped out.  Hope to do some crafting this week when my son and daughter-in-law go down to Miami to visit with a friend.  I was going to go, but I think I need some me and scrappy time.  See you all next week.

I have just come back from a 5 day cruise of scrappers that I have met thru Facebook.  We all decided to make an 8 x 8 layout about ourselves to trade with each other.  This is the one I made last minute. I was just having mojo block for weeks, but finally came up with this.  Two colors of glimmer mist and some Florida type stamps.  I then typed out a little about myself, and glimmer misted those also. The cruise was a blast.  We saw Lady Antebellum perform aboard ship.  Too bad, the weather was uncooperative.  Cool, cloudy and some rain.

It has been a tough week.  I did something to my left knee 6 weeks ago, and now the pain is getting worse.  I have now been to the doctor twice.  The first time he drained my knee of fluid and put in cortisone.  Yesterday, because the pain was worse, he is sending me for an MRI.  He has even given me pain meds as he could see how much it hurt.  In the mean time, I did this SVG for the holiday.   I did not use any patterned paper, so I stamped some of the pieces.  Using the explore and understanding the SVG's is a real learning curve.  Unfortunately I do not have anyone who lives near me who has an explore for some help.  I am still persevering with it.  One day I will know what I am doing.

I have been struggling with learning how to use the cricut Explore.  Here is a card that I made for a friend.  I just felt like it took hours, and then I ended up putting it together wrong.  I left out one of the pieces, but because of the type of glue I used, taking it apart would have been a major indertaking, so I just left it.  It still looks okay, but will have to try it again.  I am determined to learn how to use this machine.
