Spring is Around the Corner!

And I'm loving the latest QK release!! Do you have any of the new dies yet? What are your favs? The rainbow is beautiful - I can see so many uses for it. I wasn't sure about the Chick-a-dee font, but it is just oh-so-cute. Here is a layout using the new font together with the new rainbow (weather) die and post of gold:

I've earned another 15 seconds of fame (and a Silhouette download card - woo-hoo) with my Love Bot layout. This was James' Valentine's Day box. He wanted something "Cool" and that is exactly what he made. He said he felt very popular when he brought it to school, because his whole Kindergarten class was checking it out. "Even the first graders loved it," he told me.

Sorry the scan is a bit blurry. I'm having a love-hate relationship with my scanner lately!
BUT I'm totally loving my Silhouette. I used the Robot and Gear download shapes, and added offsets for the shadow/dimensional effect. I'm getting more comfortable with adjusting the blade and I have to say I get a clean cut just about every time. The cutting mechanism is far superior to that of my Cricut, I have to say.

Hi! This robot page is super cute! I love the phrase you matched with it! I remember making robots in the third grade at school! Mine was a pet feeder! :)
