Jitterbuggin' Challenge we had to follow a sketch, use purple, a cricut image, and it has to be a child's b-day card. I finally got to play with my new Lite cart that I gave in and finally bought LOL! The circles, scallop oval and girl sock monkey are all from Sugar and Spice...What a cute cart! I embossed both circles with my cuttlebug, stamped both sentiments, added butterflies and some bling on the monkey girls bow in her hair!

For this LO I originally made it for the Throwback Thursday birthday challenge but I didn't realize it ended on Saturday night, that's okay though! The birds are from CAC I embossed their wings with my cuttlebug and added a pop dot to the wings and hats, party hat is from ACY, sombrero hat is from Designer's Calendar I colored in the design with markers. Music notes from Hannah Montana, font is from Lyrical Letters, balloons from OUAP I stamped their faces, I handmade the black flower with the red button, I did the journaling on the green polka dot paper. This was my last page of my Mazatlan B-day Vacation book, I wanted to highlight some of the things we did and saw.
For this entired LO I used CAC for the title, mouse, cheese and camera...they were all on the same button feature! I made the mouse look like he was standing on top of the camera with a pop dot I also put a pop dot behind the cheese. I embossed the camera with CB and added silver stickles to the camera's "Flash". I inked the camera and the cheese with my Walnut Stain distress ink. I put the large piece of patterned paper behind the pic of me and my son so it could "look" like it's in a picture frame. I cut 2 strips of border paper and put it on the bottom with 3 buttons on the left.
So for this post I decided to post 3 in 1 since my goal is to complete 365 projects in 365 days....I'm kind of behind so this is my way of catching up! There's a description for each LO under each pic, if you have any questions on which carts I used for each LO please don't hesitate to ask!

Joanna and also for Cricut Cardz Challenge which was to make any cut from any cart. I cheated a little bit because I did not cut the card or envelope, I did cut the bike and added stickles to all the different colored paper. For the sentiment I used the Stencil feature and got a cotton ball and blue chalk ink to make it look like a stamped image, then I added blue stickles over it. I also put a strip of purple satin ribbon, tied a knot and added stickles for faux bling, for a final touch I misted with glimmer mist.

Plenty of bubbly embossing LOL!
Paper Playtime for the Bubbles theme. I decided to do a LO of my son's 1st trip to the Aquarium when he was 10 months old while on vacation in Mazatlan, Mexico 2 years ago!!! I was inspired by the fish tank he was looking at in the picture here, so I used my creativity to make this Layout look exactly like a fish tank what do you think!?! I embossed pretty much everything with my cuttlebug, added some stickles, distress inks and used my Peachy Keen stamps on some of the faces. I used 6 different carts so here is a list:
Plantin Schoolbook- circle
Zooballo- title and orange fish
Everyday Paper Dolls- Purple fish
Create a Critter- Seahorse, green plant, blue waves (it was a layer to something else that I welded together to make one long 12 inch strip) starfish, sea shell, and yellow/red/white fish
Life's a Beach- coppery colored coral reef
A Child's Year- bubbles

I used 2 different inks to color them, then embossed and added stickles. I embossed the little red plant from CAC. The title and the large paper flower embellishment are from Give a Hoot. To make the flower I cut it in 3 different sizes then put a pop dot under each layer.The circles are from Plantin Schoolbook. The tiny flowers, butterfly, and border strip are all punches. I added stickles to the title and places several eyelets and washers on my page finally I sanded 2 corners of my page and misted with glimmer mist.
