Camping LO

Here is a camping LO I created using Bo Bunny and Cosmo Cricut Papers.  I also used my cricut machine to add embellishments using the Camping Critters and Camp Out Solutions Cartridge(s).  I did use an idea LO for this page, unfortunately I saved it a while ago and cannot remember the source.  Thank you for looking :)

I'm a roll getting this vacation in the books!  Here's another LO I did amongst many others!  This is all Cosmo Cricut Early Bird collection!

Crafty Chicks Summer Challenge #2

Wynn brings us this week’s challenge. She says,
“Create a layout and “Capture the Details!” Scrap about something so familiar you tend to take it for granted. Maybe it’s the books on your bookshelf or your refrigerator artwork that you might see all the time and your family might not know why.”

I took this challenge to heart and although my house is torn apart from remodeling, I have my craft area still in with that said, I know that I am working on my daughter's 9th birthday, but then it hit me....I want to capture the details in her.  I see her everyday and life takes hold of us and we forget our children's facial expressions, excitement and innocence.  Thus I made this LO to capture her joy and excitement as we sang happy birthday to her.  Although for safety issues, I have blocked her face, ther expressions are truly priceless and they definately "Capture the Details" and "moment". 

For this LO, I used the Gypsy Shapes for the floral background and the Hannah Montana Cart for the butterflies.

Crafty Chicks Summer Challenge #1

Challenge #1 was as follows:

1. Scrap something you have been “meaning” to scrap. This could be a card, a LO, or an altered item.
2. Include the color YELLOW for summer!
3. Include embossing (either dry or wet)
4. Distress something, and...
5. Include at least one flower type embellishment

For this challenge I chose to start scrapping my daughter's just past 9th birthday because if I don't do it in the present it will sit in my past pile...which is tremendously big!  I admit I totally scraplifted this idea from the Cricut Circle Blog, July Memory Monday designer Jillian Deiling Cassity.  I used the Stand and Salute Cricut Cartridge to create the rainbow (used my gypsy to weld), the Graphically Speaking Cartridge for the Sun and the clouds were on Word Builders 3 An Ocean of Words Cartridge.  I used blue inking to the clouds and orange to the sun.  The blue paper is embossed, but hard to tell in the photos and of course I added some blingy flowers and chipboard letters to complete the LO!
