Jitterbuggin Challenge - An Apple a Day

This weeks challenge was a nice change of pace.  I simplified my usual habits and really liked the final product.  The colors were bright and happy and of course I had to use a little bling or it could not have come from me.

Going Places Labor Day 2010 Contest

I decided to participate in this challenge in the Cricut Circle Forum.  It turned out to be quite a challenge.  You were to create a Layout including your Labor Day Plans.  Todd and I decided to stay home and have Movie Night with pizza, popcorn and of course our favorite Toy Story Characters.  We had a blast!  When it came time to create I was excited to use my new Toy Story Cartridge.  It was a major undertaking and took me 4.5 hours to put these guys together; but I think they turned out great.  Todd helped pick out the paper and ribbons, he was as excited as I was.

Sketch 16 - My Favorite Things

This challenge came from Jitterbuggin Challenge.  We were instructed to follow the sketch using our favorite things (colors, subject, and cricut).  So I chose my favorite colors purple, pink, and blue.  And a butterfly that I cut from the new 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge.  I also flocked the blue bird body and used Glossy Accents to give it a little umph.  I love pansies so I made some from paper which I thought turned out pretty well.  And of course I love all things sparkly.  I really enjoyed this challenge and have a great card to boot.
