Shattered by Dani Pettrey

I'm such a nerd... : )

I can't tell you how excited I was when this book came in the mail! I've been waiting for it to come out since I finished reading Submerged, the first book in the Alaskan Courage Series. I think I finished this book in less than a week!

Shattered is full of adventure! The McKenna siblings are on the hunt to prove one of their own is innocent of a terrible crime - murder! Reef McKenna is found over the dead body with the murder weapon in his hand. The police chief is positive he's guilty. Reef's sister Piper is positive he's innocent. Deputy Landon Grainger doesn't know who to believe.

On a mission to find the real killer, Piper leads her family from Alaska to Canada to California to Oregon then back to Alaska. She won't stop until her brother is out of jail. However, the real killer has a few surprises for them along the way.

Will she be able to prove her brother's innocence, or will the real killer get to her before she can find the evidence she needs to help Reef?

Everything about this book was great! There were twists and unexpected turns throughout the entire book. Everyone and every situation seemed realistic. I would catch myself throughout the day thinking about the book and it's characters, wondering if Reef really was innocent or did he have everyone fooled. This book is definitely a must read!

If you missed my review of the first book - Submerged - you can find it here.

Bethany House Publishers supplied me with this book; however, the opinions are completely my own.

Create a Critter Room Decor

I love the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter! The animals are so cute! I made some of the animals and put them inside a white photo frame. I think these would go great in a baby's room!

I'm not real happy about the frames. They were originally black. I spray painted them white, and they just didn't come out as good as I was hoping. You may not can tell in the pictures, but up close you can tell they were spray painted. I think I'm going to keep looking for some frames that are already white.

What do you think? Would you put these up in your baby's room?

New Cricut Cartridge

I got a new Cricut cartridge - Nursery Rhymes - not too long ago and finally decided to try it out. I saw this done somewhere else and have been wanting to try it.

This is just the beginning of this project as you can tell. There are a few things I'm going to change. I want to get a more pastel looking purple for the background. After I adhere the silhouette to the background paper, I'm going to put it in a white photo frame. 

I have a lot more nursery rhymes I'm going to cut out, and I'm also going to do some in baby boy colors. Won't they be so cute?! : )

Masculine Birthday Cards

Some friends from Bible study came over this past Saturday for a craft night. Here are the cards I made:

I was trying to make cards a little more on the masculine side. Even though men probably don't care about getting cards, I thought I would have a few options for women to give their men....  : )

I used the Cuttlebug machine to make the wood-like effect on the three background parts. Then used some paper ribbon and a frame to embellish the cards. All the paper comes from the Creative Memories Discover and Rugged power pallets.

What do you think?

You can purchase these cards on my website.
