MCCR Scrapbook Friday

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog for My Cricut Craft Room's Scrapbook Friday and today's project is to include characters.  Well in my family we consider characters our stuffed animals, and when I think of stuffed animals, I think of the baby lamb and teddy bear I had when I was young, so I made a baby layout with the characters I remember growing up.  I used the cartridge Create a Critter, because it was the cartridge I knew there was both sheep and teddies in.

I had fun making this layout, for example when I cut out the clouds from the cartridge, they appeared to have a smile on them, don't you agree??  So I decided to put some googley eyes on them to make it fun:)  For the sheep, I cut one of them at 4 inches and the other at 3".  I cut everything from the same page in the booklet for the sheep.  The teddy bear I had already had cut at 3 1/2" and put together from another project and added it to the layout.   The frame I cut from the Fancy Frames cartridge at 5 inches.

I used a Martha Sterwart punch for underneath the box that holds the sentiment sweet dreams, not sure the name of it, it is borrowed. I then added a flower shaped Gem to dress it up a little.   The papers used is colorbok and Recollections, and ATD.  Other supplies used were inks from Tim Holtz and studio G, and Close To My Heart.  My Cricut, paper trimmer atg gun, flowers from Michaels and a button....I think that is it:)  I hope you enjoyed the layout today, and hope you have a great day...... Now you will want to head over to Erica's to see more projects from the Design team, so here ya go.....

                                                    Happy crafting~~  Cathy
