IMAGINE-ation Monday

Good Monday Morning!! Hope everyone had a great weekend...I had THE BEST weekend!!! More on that later...but for now, a project!

Today is IMAGINE-ation Monday over at My Cricut Craft Room! Today is the day that the Design Team uses Cricut Imagine to show off some of the great features of that machine. Now, I personally do not own an Imagine, but my BCB (Best Crafting Buddy) does! SO last weekend I went over there to play on her Imagine! Before I get to the project, I have to share a very funny story!! I go over there & pick out what image I want to use....It was a tree branch w/some flowers & birds. So I pick my sizes, load my paper & set the machine to print & cut. Meanwhile, we were also going through some of her paper stacks so we can share the paper, you know there in almost no way to use an entire paper stack, so we share some & that way we also get different papers without having to buy the whole stack! Anyway, the Imagine is printing & cutting away and when it was done all the images were pink & purple!! Now I love purple but in a tree??? LOL!! So we checked the settings, & tried again...same thing!! We must have print & cut that like 5 times!! Different sizes, different settings, checked ink levels...never did figure out why it printed in purple! And then, sometimes, some of the images wouldn't print at all, but only cut!

So instead I chose this image & made this card....
This image is from "Better Together" and I just used some pattern paper I have here at home! And a stamp from My Pink Stamper!

I have also decided I WILL make a card with that dang purple tree!! LOL!!

Now for my weekend...Friday night I went over to Tammy's again (BCB) and we made some cards, printed more images on the Imagine (which by the way, came out great!!) and just played around! THEN on Saturday....drum roll please...DEF LEPPARD!!! Holy smokes that was an AMAZING concert!!! It was even better than I ever imagined! Joe Elliot (lead singer) & all the others were still rockin even though SOME people say they are old! HA!! Whatever!! They put on an awesome show!! My ears are still ringing & my throat is still sore from all the screaming & singing!! Here are a "couple" of pics taken with my sons cell phone, my brother also took some & I am waiting (not too patiently!!) for him to upload them!! He has all the pics of us sitting in the audience!
