Child's Theme Cartridge with a twist
This is my design team post for My Cricut Craft Room. I created the following two page scrapbook layout using the Locker Talk and Mickey Font cartridges. The pictures are from a play that my now 6th grader was in as a 3rd grader. Each grade level of the elementary school she attended, the same school that my youngest is currently attending, puts on a musical every year. The title of this play was "Colors". The story was about all the colors in a box of crayons.
The crayons were cut from Locker Talk. They are both 3". The title was cut from Mickey Font at 1.25".
Supplies used:
Patterned Paper is from The Stack (I don't know which collection)
Creative Memories Wavy Paper Trimmer

Mother's Day Card

Mother's Day Card from an Adult Child
This is my design team post for My Cricut Craft Room. I created the following card to give to my mom for Mother's Day. One of her favorite colors is green, so I was sure to incorporate that. My girls helped me pick out the other paper. I cut the owl from the Twinkle Toes Cricut cartridge (4" - shift, layer, and layer shift) and the word "mom" from the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge (0.5" - regular and shadow).

Supplies used:
paper-from scrap folder
Color Box fluid chalk - Chestnut Roan

MCCR Design Team - Anything Spring

I am one of the newest members of the design team over at My Cricut Craft Room.  I created a scrapbook page for Festive Friday - Anything Spring. I used Walk in My Garden to create the wheelbarrow (5" cuts - regular, shift, and shadow). This can be found on page 107 of the book. I also used Don Juan for the title (cut at 1 1/2"). This is the first time I have used either of these cartridges. I created this page knowing I have pictures of my daughters planting seeds last summer. They each planted one item. The oldest planted squash and the youngest watermelon. They have picked out the same items this year, just a different variety.

Supplies Used:
DCWV The Cherry Limeade Stack

I'm Back!

I have been away from the blogging world for a couple of months. I had surgery in February and am just feeling my creative juices flowing again. Thank God for clean test results.

I look forward to getting back to scrapbooking. I have already signed up for a few blog hops. And I am one of the newest members of My Cricut Craft Room's design team.
