Cute chickens

Happy birthday today to my scrappy friend Carolyn! 

I made her a tri-fold card in a farm style (since she lives on a farm) with lots of embossing.  The chickens were cut using Cricut cartridge 'Country Life'.  ( I think she has chickens....).

Let it snow

I rarely get to do a snow layout but here my kids were playing with polystyrene packaging in the lounge and it sure looked like it was snowing!

Snowflake paper by DCWV and Snowflakes cut using 'Accent Essentials'.  I made a shaker box to cover one photo (see circular left-hand photo) and filled it with beads.

Hole lot of fun

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week is a hot chocolate/cup theme or to simply use brown. 

My layout uses torn Bo Bunny paper to look like dirt with the photos and embellishments 'stuck' into the dirt.  My kids thought it was hillarious to jump in the hole that Daddy had dug to plant a tree.  Very helpful....

Cricut cuts - gumboots (Paisley), spade (Paper dolls), font (Life's a Beach).
