My E2 Contest Entry...

For my layout, I used the following cartridges: Birthday Bash for the elephants, banner, birthday hats and balloons, Stamping for the words, Doodlecharms for the sun, and then Gypsy Wanderings for the scalloped photo mats.

Here's my birthday layout...(click on to see larger)

Below...shows the dimension

Closeup of the banner and sun.

Close up of the elephants. I welded the bases of the elephants together with my gypsy along with the balloons and string. And then I welded the birthday hats to the top layer of the two larger elephants. The white dot on the balloons are extras from the top of the birthday hats.

Thanks for looking!

Look at that face!!

Isn't my nephew's daughter just adorable?!! I'm trying to not forget about the older I keep adding the new ones to my stash. For this layout I used the older cartridge called Animal Kingdom to make the chickens!

Cricut Weekly Challenge Entry!

The challenge for this week was to create a sketch and then a project based on the sketch. I've wanted to make a layout using a variety of font styles so I came up with is my sketch:
And, my layout. The fonts used are: Base Camp for Freedom, Printing Press for Beauty, Alphalicious for Truth and Opposites Attract for Love. All the words were cut from black cardstock and then I stamped on Beauty and Love to add a different look to them. (The words - Freedom, Beauty, Truth & Love - are the Bohemian mantra from the movie Moulin Rouge.)

Cricut Storage

The Cricut Circle Magazine challenge for this month is on cricut organization. You have to show how you store at least 4 cricut related items. For me, I use the "leg" that holds up my table surface to store my cricut items. In one side I have my cricut expression, my cartridges, my gypsy and my laptop with Design Studio in it. In the other side I have photo boxes that hold my cricut overlays and handbooks. It's not the most creative of ideas...but, it works for me! My happy place!
