Getting Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop

A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky! If you are here from Jennifer Anderson of Scrappin Lil Turtle then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to K Andrew of Getting Cricky! For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! It is an honor to be in such an awesome hop and she has worked so hard putting this all together so be sure to send her lots of love and appreciation!  She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. I am representing the state of Colorado!

Colorado is an amazing place to live.  That's why I've been here my whole life (just different areas).  The picture above is of Telluride.  I used to live about an hour and a half from there and Tom Cruise and Oprah are just a few of the celebrities that have homes there.  Very cool place to visit! 

Currently I live in Fort Collins and we were voted #2 in the US for best city to live in 2008 from Money Magazine.  How cool is that?  I moved here about five years ago or so and am so happy I did.  We have a fabulous "Old Town" with all kinds of great little shops and awesome free events in the summer, but we also have everything else you could imagine to do, as well, and we are only an hour from Denver and the awesome zoo and botanical gardens!  I'm very fortunate to live here!

As far as states I've visited, Maine and Hawaii are my two favorites.  Very different yet I want to live in both states.  I also love Arizona cause it's so warm and some of my family live there.  We will be going there in April (I hope) to visit them.  The next states I want to visit are Georgia, Virginia, Oregon, and Alaska.  They all are appealing to me for different reasons, but I love road tripping it and seeing all there is to see!  If anyone has any great ideas of places to go in these states, please leave that in your comment!

Now onto the project.  We were asked to post our favorite creation of the past year and while it was hard to decide, this is my favorite one.  For those of you who already follow my blog, I apologize for reposting this as you've most likeley already seen it, but for newbies, this is the one I had the most fun with.

I was supposed to be making a card for my friends who hosted an awesome Halloween party, but I couldn't get everything I wanted onto a card so I decided to make a little hanging sign from chipboard.  The tag, as you can see, is removable and that's where I put my sentiments to them.  I just loved the way it turned out and it was such a fun Cricut project!  I think it ended up being 8" x 8".
Supplies I used were:
  • Gypsy Wanderings Cart. for "Thanks"
  • Mansion and Fence from Happy Hauntings Cricut Cart
  • Ribbon from Offray Spool O' Ribbon
  • Metallic Brads from We R Memory Keepers
  • Background Paper from Recollections from Michaels - Ravenhead Manor
  • Bat Epoxy Sticker from Creative Imaginations
  • Tag from full sheet of paper from my stash - purchased at Capture, Inc.
  • Cardstock from my stash
  • I backed the sign with chipboard from
  • I inked all the edges wit Blackbird Cat's Eye ink
  • "Memories Like These" stickers from my stash
Tools Used:
  • Cropadile bought at Capture, Inc.
  • Scotch adhesive clear glue
  • This to That strip glue runner from American Crafts

Now if you've been following the hop, then you know we are all giving away blog candy!  These are some items I've collected from kits and thought I'd share with you.  It's quite a random variety, but there's something in there for everyone so if you would like to be the winner be sure to 1.

Your Halloween Hanging is so fun! I can se why it all wouldn't go on a card--but it's a perfect wall hanging! As a child, we lived in Colorado for a year, in Boulder. I loved it and have fond memories of all the fun things we did there. I'm a new follower--you can find me at ksjennings at gmail dot com and/or

Teela said...

C/S, home sweet home. Thanks for sharing and also this tremendous card turned wall hanging! I am a fellow fibro (diagnosed in 1996), and of course am a follower! Keep on scrapping and encouraging girl!

if you go to georgia, go to thomasville. they have great antique stores and beautiful plantation houses!

Chereazy said...

Love your project! My husband and I just went on a cruise this summer to Alaska! It was AMAZING!! Probably our favorite state we have ever visited. If you don't do it by cruise I recommend going to Anchorage. You can see so much there!! If you can take the train up to Denali it is amazingly beautiful! we did not make it to Fairbanks but that is where we would love to go next! It is like nothing we have ever seen before!! One of my life goals is to visit all 50 states!! Thanks again!

Thanks for sharing!

Amy said...

Your Halloween project is amazing - I would love it even if Halloween weren't my favorite time of year. Thanks for sharing about Colorado - now I definitely need to visit my cousin in Boulder. It sounds beautiful!

scrappinheaven said...

Hi from Louisiana, you should definitely put my state on your list of must sees! New Orleans should be on everyone's bucket I don't live there, but it is a fun place to visit as long as you don't go during Mardi Gras. The smaller towns are better for that, not as dangerous :-) I love Colorado too, we lived in Grand Junction for 2 years and I miss it so much. I want to move back!!

Hi! I am sorry you have Fibro... I have RSD, so I know what it's like to live in pain. I've always wanted to go to Colorado. I live way across the country in southeastern CT,(where Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos are) and where the Submarine Capital of the World is. Just thought I'd tell you some things to do if you come to our state. I'm a follower. I'll be back!
