It's a Cinco de Mayo Celebration!

...And not just because its Cinco de Mayo today. But because I got my new Silhouette in the mail. And I am so stinkin' excited to bust it open! For those that aren't familiar (how could you not be??), here's what they look like:

The coolest part of all? If you follow their blog
every week they post a "freebie". this weeks shape is this adorable tire swing

How cute is that?? I am already imagining the summer scrapbook pages of the kiddos!And every week, its something new and different. I can't wait!

I am all over this chore chart! You hear that kids??

One of the first projects I'm going to do is this one I found for the bathroom is this one I found over at eighteen25
This His and Hers idea is awesome and I can't wait to do it!

So ask me what I'm doing this weekend? This mommy is busting open her boxes and celebrating Mother's Day by making some fun stuff with her new toy!

Happy Crafting!
