PLUS Cricut will kick in all 4 of their new cartridges (Stand and Salute, Simply Sweet, Home Decor and Jubilee) as an added bonus!

To enter to win, complete the steps below:
1. Create something fabulous and fun using your Cricut (be sure and document your project, including “how to” steps, with your camera).
2. Post your project and “how to” instructions on your blog with a link to TodaysMama.com and Cricut. Please also specify with Cricut cartridge you used to create your project.
3. Send an email to info@todaysmama.com with “Cricut” in the subject line and let us know about your project. Please include a link to your project post.
4. Don’t have a blog? No problem - simply send the information outlined in step 2 to us at info@todaysmama.com and that will act as your contest entry.

Another Scrapbook Share

This is another old layout I made to remind myself that what I do everyday is important. While staring at a computer screen all day, sometimes I forget that I am doing something that makes a difference. You see, since I am in the military, sometimes I dont feel like I am contributing enough because I am behind a desk, but I am a Medical Administrator and I run a medical clinic and I take care of my fellow service members, ensuring they get quality, timely Healthcare. That is important, even if I am not in the front line, I am taking care of those that are and there families, sometimes, I just need to remind myself that my job IS a contribution....
