Father's Day 2011

Tonight I completed a 2 page layout for Father's Day that we celebrated at Tio's Mexican Food.  The paper was from a DWWC stack found at Joann's.  I used the new Father's Day Cricut solution cartridge for the PS3 controller because Steve received a game he really wanted from the girls.  I used the Nursery Rhymes cricut cartridge for the title.  I also included the cards he received.  One of the cards when you open it has Trevor saying  "Papa I love you!".  Yeah one more layout completed on my summer vacation...lots more to go!!

Trevor with Robots

Completed a 2 page layout of Trevor and his robots we made on June 20th for his 3rd birthday next month.  I used the Robotz Cricut cartridge for the font as well as all cut outs. I found the robot paper at Michaels by Recollections.  It is called Rockets 'n' Sprockets.  I bought the matching stamp set but didn't use it on this layout.  I have plans to use it on the actual birthday party layout.

Lions, Tigers & Bears OH MY!

Tonight, I finished a one page layout of Ashley enjoying a book she picked out when leaving the zoo.  I used the same paper as Matt's so they could be side by side.  I used the ZooBalloo cricut cartridge for the title and cut outs.

A Tiger-rific Day

Today I worked on this layout...I had a difficult time finding a predator looking tiger on one of the many Cricut cartridges I own.  This tiger was the only one that was ok, not perfect for the layout, but will do.  This is a picture of Matt with the book he chose at the end of our trip.  I used the Animal Kindom--for the tiger, Cuttin' Up--for the title and ZooBalloo for the background plants. All these cartridges are about 5 years old.   The tiger print paper I found at Michael's last week on clearance in a Zoo paper pack. 

On Safari

Last night, I completed the layout of the elephants at San Diego Zoo.  Matthew posed without being asked, the picture turned out great so I used it with the elephant layout.  The 3 elephant pictures to the right on the 2nd page shows a bird landing in seconds between shots. The only Cricut used was the title and I used my new Kate's ABCs.
