Warning! keep Goo Gone away from your cutters!

Okay so my Fiskars Rotary Cutter, which I have had since early 2000's, was a bit sticky with adhesive because I'm bad and sometimes cut through products with exposed glue etc.

I decided to get out the Goo Gone and give my scissors, rulers, and cutter a good wipe down, so I laid them all out on my craft table, cutter first and so on, dampened a paper towel with Goo Gone, wiped the plastic 'finger protector' plastic with the paper towel, moved onto the next item etc. until all were 'sticky' free!  Awesome!  Now that the goo was gone, I grabbed a baby wipe and went back to the cutter at the beginning of the line, lifted the bar/plastic and the Goo Gone had completely disintegrated what used to be the white, orange & red markings on the deck!!!  The moment I wiped the deck all that paint came off 😢😢😢 My cutter is completely ruined because instead of straight red lines with orange & white background I now have white, orange and raspberry swirl ice cream!



Okay now that I have given the warning I'm going to crawl into bed, cry a little then order a new cutter 😫

Have a SCRAPtastic day!

Because she enjoyed it

I found several of these photos of my Mom at varying times with the crocheted and knitted animals she created.  It gave her great joy to make all of these creatures and even grated joy watching those who received her gifts, increase the amount of joy in there lives.  She was asked often why she would make the same ones many times over and doesn't she get bored but her answer was always 'I enjoy it and it makes me happy' and no truer words were spoken.  Miss you so much Mom!

Animal Kingdom elephants & hippos


The safari tour was awesome, we were able to see so many different animals, it felt like being on safari in Africa!  The baby elephant had the older ones wrapped around his finger, just like human babies do and the hippos ears were in constant motion otherwise you would never know they were there!  So special!

Have a SCRAPtastic day!

Animal Kingdom's Tree of Life

Animal Kingdom's tree of life is simply an amazing sight to see!  We were lucky enough to see Animal Kingdom all decorated up with a beautiful christmas tree as well!



I hid my journaling behind the lower left photo on the right-side layout, adding the animal parade to pull it out with.

Thanks for stopping by today!
