 For my first project, I used the Cricut cartridge 
Victorian Romance.  


My card is a typical A2 sized card.  My base is black Recollections card stock.  My layer is 5 1/4 X 4 and is from DCWV All Dressed Up stack.  My image was cut at 3.5 using my E2.  I added three Glitzy Prismatic Stickers from Color Bok.  My sentiment is from K Andrew It's Valentine Stamp set.  My sentiment is stamped on pink card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut using Nestabilities Scallop Oval and then I added some Silver Pearl Liquid Pearl to each scallop.  I also inked around the edges using SU Real Red Ink.  

For my second project, I used 
Better Together Imagine Cartridge! 


This card is also an A2 sized card but this one is top fold.  My blue layer is 5 1/4 X 4 and is Color Bok card stock from Wal Mart.  The next layer is DCWV The Blossoms & Butterflies stack and is cut at 5 X 3 3/4.  My image was printed and cut at 3 inches using my Imagine!  I added some crystal bling to the top right corner and my sentiment is stamped in Memento Black Ink on the ticket punched in the same yellow card stock from Recollections South Beach stack using the EK  Success ticket punch.  The sentiment is from K Andrew Fashionable Friends stamp set which can be purchased in Erica's store!  My ribbon (which is from Michael's) is ran through the grommets I added with my Crop A Dile II than added to my card prior to putting the DSP layer down. 

For my third and final project for today, I used the
 Love You A Latte Cricut Cartridge.  


 This card is also A2 sized and a top fold.  My cute image was cute from Love You A Latte Cart at 3inches including the layers.  My card base is Kraft card stock from Recollections.  My brown layer is 4 X 5 1/4 and is from Color Bok.  The red layer is 2 1/4 X 5 and is from my scrap drawer.  I used my white gelly roll pen to add some dash lines to the red layer.  My image was pop dotted on a Nestabilities Scallop Oval.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the whip cream topping and the drop of whip cream on the cup to give it some shine.  I added orange glitter glue that I picked up in the craft section at Wal Mart to the label and the orange slice.  I used red liquid pearl for my candy on the whip cream.  The peach paper is from Paper Studio and the poker dot paper is Color Bok.  My ribbon is from Wal Mart and the orange crystals were also purchased at Wal  Mart. My awesome sentiment is from K Andrew Coffee & Tea for You & Me stamp set.  The Happy and Birthday were stamped on white GP card stock using SU Peach Parfait ink and layered with the same brown and peach paper.  Grande was stamped onto the peach label using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink prior to adding the glitter glue.  

What hop would be complete without something sweet!

  46. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

  47. CFDs are a leverage product and can involve a significant risk of loss. However owning and mastering a setup implies that you have tweaked your feeling of carefulness regarding choosing which exchanges to take and which ones to go on. Numerous merchants hunt long and hard down some "blessed vessel" exchanging framework that permits them to abstain from needing to build up their optional exchanging aptitudes, sadly for them, expert exchanging characteristically includes a calibrated feeling of having the capacity to perceive between A, B, and C evaluation exchange setups.

    He earned that title through commitment and center… he figured out how to turn into a MASTER of his art… in the event that you need to succeed in Forex you will need to do receive the Bruce Lee mindset… Forget all that you have adapted so far in your exchanging profession, in light of the fact that on the off chance that you really need to ace another Forex exchanging system you truly need to wipe the slate clean of all the confounding marker and programming based exchanging frameworks you have likely utilized up to this point.

    A forex mini account is one which is typically opened by investors who want to participate in the foreign exchange market more actively but do not yet have the knowledge, experience or the money to do so. Mini accounts are generally opened for a fraction of the standard price, making them more affordable for someone who might be leery of investing so much money in a full account, especially when their lack of currency investment experience could set them up for losses early on. Trading can be conducted on a much smaller scale with a mini account, enabling the new forex investor to take smaller positions on currencies.

  48. Fourteen of the twenty-two articles (63.6 %) were categorized within the research topic labelled the Internet Advertising Landscape” while no articles were categorized within the research topics Commercial Exploitation of Web 2.0” or Evaluation of Online Performance.” In contrast to the analysis of the top thirty ranked IS journals in which the top three research topics were Business Models of Online Marketing” (41.1 %), the Internet Advertising Landscape” (22.4 %), and Evaluation of Online Performance (16.5 %); the top three research topics within the top five marketing journals were the Internet marketing Landscape” (63.6 %), Business Models of Online Marketing” (13.6 %), and Other Topics” (13.6 %). Due to the small number of articles in the sample, it is difficult to make any statements regarding trends in the Internet marketing research in the top Marketing journals.

    I have done my own listening and testing over many months and my opinions have been different from individuals like John Atkinson of Stereophile ("Whatever the provenance, a consistent factor in my auditioning of the decoded MQA files was a sense of ease to the sound."), John Darko of DigitalAudioReview (speaking of Ella and Louis: "The MQA version delivers fuller, more tonally satisfying bass notes and a better sense of the space surrounding Fitzgerald's voice."), JV Serinus also of Stereophile (speaking of Ray Charles & Natalie Cole's "Fever" - "the MQA version conveyed a more believably large soundstage"), Robert Harley of TAS ("MQA's dramatic superiority made the original high-resolution file sound like a pale imitation of the performance"), Chris Connaker of The Computer Audiophile (doing a blinded ABX - "I did this several times and immediately selected the correct MQA or non-MQA version of the track every time").

    Businesses can now use social media to select the age range, location, gender and interests of whom they would like their targeted post to be seen by. Furthermore, based on a customer's recent search history they can be ‘followed' on the internet so they see advertisements from similar brands, products and services, 34 This allows businesses to target the specific customers that they know and feel will most benefit from their product or service, something that had limited capabilities up until the digital era.
