This week's Pimp-Out/Showcase belongs to me, Connie from Connie Can Crop.
Hello blogging friends! I am so excited to be the spotlight this week for the Pimp-Out Showcase! My name is Connie and I have been crafting my entire life. My mom was always crafting and lucky for me her talents rubbed off. I became really involved in scrapbooking right after I had found I was pregnant with my first son. So you could say I have been scrapbooking over 16 years.

I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom to be 2 boys (ages 15 and 12), wife to a great guy who supports my crazy habit, an Ebay store owner, a Scrapbook Consultant for Memory Works, and even a College student. My hopes are to one day be a nurse working with Geriatrics. It's alot on my plate but I couldn't have it any other way!

I am really involved in my crafting hobby. I am currently on 3 design teams: Storytellers Club, Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, and Creative Kuts. I love creating gifts for people, altering just about anything, making my own cards, and creating scrapbooking layouts.

On my blog Connie Can Crop you will find projects featuring all of these Designs Teams as well as videos and my monthly challenges. I have some great sponsors that enable me to giveaway lots of great items! I try to host my own blog hops at least once a month and sometimes, time permitting, participate in a few more. I am a Cricut Fanatic! I own more cartridges than I care to count and can teach you just about anything when it comes to the Cricut or Gypsy. My newest passion is for SVG files and fortunately I have a Crciut that works with SCAL and can cut those files for me with great ease.

My project for today is an SVG file from today's Sponsor Creative Kuts. It's called Swinging into Spring and features a very cute owl swinging!
