Pinterest, Picasa and Cricut Saved the Day!!!

My Son dragged his tushie as usual...I don't have ANY idea where he gets his procrastination from (roll eyes, heehee) No, he comes by it honestly.  But anyway, we were down to the last minute trying to throw together a project that is due at 8 am today!  So, after finally finding a store that had the boards in stock, we finally got home to get started at about 2. 

So we took the Cricut that is so easy to use that even a ten year old could handle, punching in the letters and the blurb (or whatever those little thingies are called). 
We glued all that down and went through my entire scrapbook paper stash.  It wasn't much because I do not scrapbook, yet!  I didn't feel like running out to the store again, so Pinterest to the rescue.

Aren' the little swirlies cute???

Between my Cool Printables and Fonts and Papercraft boards, I had all the free printable paper I needed. 

I needed to write the little caption below the photos, and didn't feel like printing in Word and then cutting and pasting again, so I tried Picasa.  I had heard alot about it around blogland.  This is the first time I tried it and oh wow, I found another new love!!!
Hope this post inspires you to tie your crafting in with your helping your family with their projects!!


  1. Don't you just love when your kids projects and lack of planning become your emergency as well? It looks great and I'm so glad it all worked out well for you and your son!

  2. Absolutely, that is the story of my Life!
