I know they are not coming out as well but its what I have right now. I took this picture at Walt Disney World when we went to Micky's Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP).

I am pretty proud of this one. I went to a scrapbook convention this week end and bought at Trick or Treat pack by Fancy Pants. For the little squares I cut out the pictures of the paper from the front of the pack. I thought I was being very creative...lol

Fantablous cricut challenge

The Fantablous cricut challenge this week is BBQ. I used the sketch from Sketches in Thyme. This layout ended up being way simpler then I first start. I tried to paper piece ants but in the end I tossed them out. I feel like it is missing something but I am not sure what. Maybe the ants....lol.

The paper is from my stash. I love that the back ground paper looks like a picnic table.

I used Block Party Bash cricut lite cartridge for the food

I used From My Kitchen for the grill and the knives

This layout also qualifies for:
