Howdy Friends,

This is Kristy Day from Provo Craft.  Summer is quickly approaching and when I think of summer, I think of rodeos, fairs and taking my little boy to see all the animals on the farm.  Summer is such a great time to catch up on some scrapbooking and card making.  Send out a card just to say hello and let your loved ones know that you are thinking of them or create the perfect invitation to a family reunion or summer event. And with the Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter, it makes paper crafting so fun and easy.
This adorable page was made using the Cricut County Fair cartridge.  It is fantastic; it has so many great images of farm animals to choose from.  Whether I am creating a country card for a friend or scrapbooking my sons’ farm pictures, I know that I have the right tools to make them look their best.  I hope ya’all like this page and I hope that is has inspired you to pull out the Cricut and get crafty!

Take Care,
