My Cricut Craft Room Scrapbook Friday--Swimming

**** For Melissa's Husband's Birthday Bash Blog hop please view the post below this one***

I don't know about you but it has been H O T here!! Yesterday my van said it was 101 outside.  UGH! We haven't had rain in a long time!!  Hope where ever you are today you are staying cool!
Here it is Friday already!  I love today's theme Swimming!
I used the Cricut cartridge H2O for today's scrapbook page.  My girlfriend and I have spent the last two weekends in our pool!  So I thought it would be great for a Smash book page!

I did some tearing of paper at the bottom of my page for the water, and some fibers for the straw in the drink.  My sentiment says: Day in the Sun. (which is on the H2O cartridge)

Please make sure to visit to see all the other great scrapbook pages today!!

Melissa's Husband's Birthday Bash Blog Hop!!

Here is the blog button!

Welcome to a Surprise Birthday Bash for a fellow's Crafters Husband. His name is Chris Pinter who is turning 34 TODAY!!
First I want to say a big Happy Birthday!! To Melissa's husband Chris!  I hope you have a great Birthday!!  

If  Jamie Lindstrom - sent you over for a visit then you are exctly where you are meant to be. If you just happen to be visiting then you should head over to pinkpolkadotscrapping:  for the beginning of this fabulous hop! 

This was so fun to do!!  I feel that Birthday's are soo important to celebrate! It is the day of your Birth!!  I like to go all out for Birthday's!  I make Birthday's a BIG deal! First you get to pick your Birthday breakfast, then a present.  Usually we do a party on the weekend and invite family and friends.  The Birthday boy or girl gets to pick their dinner and dessert.  We decorate with balloons, streamers etc.  I think my favorite Birthday's to celebrate are our October Birthday's.  (We have 6 of them!!)  I really hope you enjoy the projects today!

I used the Country Life and From My Kitchen Cricut cartridges to create this card for Chris.  I didn't like any of my paper that I had so I made my own using a Stampin up stamp and white ink.  I know it isn't a masculine card, I don't do very well at making masculine cards!
                                                         I just added a simple sentiment
                                                                   inside of the card
