TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!! Exclusive Cart Challenge Starts!! Plus, PSA Essentials Day 2!

Hi Everybody! 
Ok, I know that's the longest post title ever, but there's a lot to announce!  Before you keep reading, please look over to the right and press PLAY on my playlist so you can listen to some of my favorite songs while you read!!  And now........

HAAAAAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEEEEEEEEE!  Lol, can you tell I'm excited for my birthday?  I was quite the handful when I was younger (that's the PG version of how describe my younger self :P  ), so I'm actually enjoying calming down (but not too much!), getting older and being able to enjoy life more :o)  I will be 34 this year!  And having my crafty life take off has been AMAZINGFABULOUSAWSOME!  I never dreamed that I might actually be able to do what I love for a living.  It's still in the early, EARLY stages, but teaching classes, having sponsored opportunities, and the best part making crafty friends who are as crazy about their crafting as I am has been a dream! 

Here is the birthday card I made in honor of my birthday using my PSA Essential Snoopy stamps:

Of course I have to do something crafty to celebrate my birthday (don't forget I also am having a Big Birthday Bloga-aversary celebration on April 16-17th!).   So today I want to start a challenge for one of my favorite cartridges! This is a Cricut Circle Exclusive, so not everybody can get this cartridge!! 

This cartridge may not be everybody's cup of tea, but I really love it.  I love my Cricut and all the crafty doors it's opened for me.  It took my crafting to another level.  So if you're like me, and want to celebrate all things Cricut, this is the perfect cartridge for you!! Provocraft sent me an extra one by mistake, but was generous enough to let me keep it to giveaway on my blog!!!  So in order to get a chance to win here's what you gotta do:

  1. Please become a follower-I promise you won't regret it!!!
  2. Create a project SPECIFICALLY for this challenge. Any past projects posted will be deleted :(
  3. Create a project about something you love (It can be your love for crafting, for the outdoors, or for someone you love, anything), or a birthday themed projectOne project per person please. 
  4. Challenge will be open until  April 20 at 11:59 pm PST.
*** please note, due to shipping I can only accept USA and Canada entries***

I will be checking in later, but I will spending the day with my family!!  Thanks so much for celebrating with me and doing this challenge! I really hope everybody has a chance to craft today :oD
