Fun with Scrabble

Posted on

This week is my 3rd attempt at the Color Dare Challenge.  The assigned colors were Sorbet, Canary, Crystal Blue, and White Daisy.

This week I also decided to participate in another challenge as well which gave me the theme of scrabble!  We love scrabble and all sorts of board games in our family so I decided to mix both challenges and see what I could do.  You can check out the Scrabble Themed Challenge here.

We had perfect weekend of Fun in the Sun with friends and the little ones were so tired by the end of the day.  Shockingly they made it through a full day of water play and then we did some rides.

I felt that this theme captured our day perfectly!  I created the “tiles” with a tiny Crystal Blue frame so they would have some extra depth.  I wanted to the pics to really pop but also give you the feel of a Scrabble tile so I double framed them.  To help me I used my Cricut Artbooking Cartridge to create the sun bursts.  You can order your cartridge by clicking here.

Shades of Brown

Posted on

Week 2 of my year long scrapbook challenge! This week the color dare was to use various shades of brown. When I saw these colors I immediately thought of my dear friend and her puppy. These pics and the scenery are perfect for browns.  For my layout I used all the colors except for dessert sand and champagne.

I used our amazing Cricut cartridges to create this. I used the Cricut Artistry cartridge to create almost everything. The “Little One” title came from our Artbooking Cartridge.

To frame the pictures I used our Fundamentals Basic Package. If you zoom in you can see the little accents in the paper on my layout.  It added the perfect little something to brighten up the picture.  Make sure to order yours soon because it’s retiring July 31 and is while supplies last!

CTMH Color Dare Blog Challenge

Posted on

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything here!  I’ve found a blog challenge that I’ve decided to participate in.  I’m setting a goal to participate every week for a year.  I know that we all have trouble keeping up with our scrapbooking so who wants to do this with me?  Join me over the next year and together we will get at least 52 layouts done by completing this challenge!  You can always just stop by here every week and check out my entry.

This week the challenge is to use CTMH Magical paper packet colors.  It’s perfect for me because we have TONS of Disney photos.  I plan on completing more layouts with this paper packet but here’s my entry for the challenge.  This photo doesn’t do it justice but that’s something I’ll be working on over the next year too… my photography skills.

I used the Magical Workshop Your Way Kit to make this layout.
