  Challenge Me Monday at FCCB

Pin It
Hello fellow Cricuteers!!
It's Challenge Me Monday over at

and this week's theme
is
Challenge #150
FUN WITH PUNS
We invite you to create any project featuring a Fun Pun.

Be sure to upload your entry on the FCCB.
Here's what I have created for this challenge:
 
Swim Like a Fish!
 
I used so many cartridges on this layout! Probably the most I've ever used on one layout before. Let's take a closer look.
 
Page One
 
My title used 3 fonts. The banners are from Happy Graduation. I used my Gypsy to delete the letters that were in them and replaced the letters with Nate's ABCs font. The "like a" was made using Opposites Attract.
 
Page Two
 
The journaling box was cut with CM's This and That Cartridge. I also used the same cartridge to cut out the little fish.
 


 
This scuba boy was cut with Life's a Beach.

 
And this one was cut with H2O.

 
Again my sweet little fish were cut with This n That.
 
Other items used to create this layout:
Copics
Peachy Keen Stamps
Bazzill and AC Cardstock
Orange Glitter Ribbon
Patterned Paper from my stash
Buttons
 
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!

This layout is perfect for your families day at the park with the dog. When you purchase it from CK it comes with a boy and a girl. I chose to make mine with just the boy since my house is all boys but me.

  All Racing Blog Hop

Pin It
 
Welcome to the All Racing Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the start of the 2013 Nascar Season and the Daytona 500. We have all created a project having something to do with any form of racing.
If you have raced over from Lee's blog you are on the right path.
If you just happened upon this post, race over to Carla's Blog to start from the beginning.
 Our wonderful sponsor for this hop is, Nikki over at Paper Piecings by Nikki
She has graciously offered a $25.00 gift certificate to her store. To be eligible to win this you must leave a comment on all the blog posts.
Now let's see what I have created for this great hop...
 
 My oldest used to be a Boy Scout. One of the trips they took was to go race professional go carts at K1 Speedway here in Southern California. I'm really behind in my scrapping so this layout was the perfect excuse to join this Blog Hop. So glad I did!!
 
 I'm going to be honest with you...I could have cut out the title, flag and race car with my Cricut or my eCraft but many years ago (before I owned these machines) I purchased these die cuts from an Expo. I have been hoarding them and finally pulled them out and put them to use. The company that created them was called Scrap It, Keep It, Remember It.
 
Now on the second page I finally busted out my "New" Creative Memories Border System with the Banner Border Punch. I love this punch system! You have gotta check it out!
This design was inspired by a Scrapbooking kit I found on the Internet, but I am not sure which company. When I figure that out I will be sure to give them the credit.
Here's our list of racers in case you get lost.
 
 
I am the last stop in the race to the end! Thanks for racing by!!
 
I hope that you have enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. I love receiving comments and new followers. It means so much to me! So please feel free to drop me a note and follow my blog for more inspiration, giveaways, and tips.

BE MY VALENTINE
We invite you to create any project featuring a cricut cartridge cut that has to do Valentine's.

Have to say I adore this cart!! I also used Cricut Craft Room's exclusive Seasonal Characters to cut out Cupid. He is a doll!
 
 Page 1
I left one side of the heart frames unglued so I can add photos behind each of the hearts.
 
 Close up of the font. It is so playful!
