Theme Day Thursday at My Cricut Craft Room

     It is Theme day Thursday at My Cricut craft Room and my design team project for today's theme.."Sleepover"  is a scrapbook layout.  I do not typically do many layouts, I usually make cards, but I have to tell you I am having a  lot of fun making these pages.  The cartridges I chose to make today's layout is Happily Ever After and Art Philosophy.  There are a lot of cute cuts on  Happily Ever After cartridge...Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, ( my all time favorite cartoon)  and Snow White.  Sooooo, who do you think of when you think of Snow white???  The seven dwarfs, and of course Sleepy:)

      I found a page from a stack of Momenta's Celebrations and Occasions.  The page had blues and greens and purples, as well as the verses of Twinkle   Twinkle, little star. I cut the picture mats at 5", 4 3/4" and 4 1/2 " in Colonial white Purple and Indian Corn Blue.  The shape is from the Art Philosophy cartridge on page 37.  I also cut the 3D roses from this cartridge, at 2 1/2 inches in yellow and purple, as well as the stars@ 1 and 3/4 and 1 and 1/2 inches and the letters..for sleep over at 1 1/4.

     The white flower with the purple layer and the rose in the center, I do not know which cartridge it is from, sorry to say.  I had cut a bunch of them out a while ago to have some ahead, and I looked through the cartridges today and can not find where I got it:((

     Next i started the fun little guy, Sleepy on page 65.  There were quite a few little pieces to him, but I cut him at 4 1/4 inches and the pieces were not  too bad at all to handle:)   After I put him all together with my Zig pen, I added a little pink chalk to his cheeks to make them rosey.  Then I cut the lantern  out from page  64 at 5 " and layered with 2 shades of yellow Bazzill card stock.

      Down each side of the layout I made a strip, one at 2 1/4 inches and the other at 1 inch  of another paper from the stack with stripes and used the ATG to put the stars on them.  to finish it off I put a couple of buttons on the bottom left, and Voila!!

     I hope you like my post today, I know I had fun making it:))  Now you will want to head over to Erica's blog at My Cricut Craft Room at this link  to see more projects from the Design Team like this:)  Have a great Crafty day.
        P.S.   Today is my 32nd wedding anniversary!!!!!!!!!  woohoo
