Duck Races

What a busy week!  But I managed to complete a two page layout with two challenges in mind.  These are more pictures from Steed's Dairy (see first post).  With many corn mazes, Steed's has water pump duck races.  I used the sketch from Scrap Much? Oct. 19 sketch challenge.  And I also cut ducks using my Cricut for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #133 Down on the Farm.  Now my ducks are a little non-traditional in color, but I like them :)

The sketch:

My version:
(Not the best lighting.  But I finished the page at 8 PM, so natural light was out of the question.)

Supplies used:
k i Memories Classic Prints Paper Pad - printed papers
Crafts Etc! Brights Paper Pad - cardstock
Brads from my stash
Chipboard Letters (I've had these so long I don't even remember where I bought them)
Cricut Catridge: Animal Kingdom - duck (p. 87) at 3 inches and beak and wing layers using shift key (I hid cuts that would make the body). The ducks were made with cardstock found in my scraps folder. I used Sharpie markers for details.


  1. such a great colorful page Melissa, I loved that this sketch inspired a layout and a double at that! thanks for sharing with us at ScrapMuch?!!

  2. Great 2 pager. Love that you flipped the sketch for the second page. Non tradition colors for the ducks definately adds to the page

  3. Well done! I love how you flipped the flags on the second page! Very imaginative!!

  4. Brilliant idea to use the sketch for both pages! I love the colours and how you've done your title too! So creative! Thanks for joining in our ScrapMuch? challenge!
