Critter Challenge Blog - Challenge #23 - Mom's Cricut Christmas

This week at the Critter Challenge Blog not only do we have a sketch for you to follow, but a theme as well! Our theme is Christmas in July.
You all know I prefer to scrapbook, so when I saw the theme I was excited... I was a little nervous about the sketch, but I think I did okay!

This picture was from Christmas 2008, when my boys (hubby of course did the buying) surprised me with a Cricut. I had been hinting very loudly!! The boys were so proud, and of course I was soooo excited!!!

Funny part about this layout.. I didn't use my Cricut to make anything for it!

I copied the little Cricut guys from one of my Cricut reward certificates... and then cut them out, corner rounded them and matted them on some white cardstock.

The letters are cardstock stickers from American Crafts - Remarks - they are called "Smokey Joe's" - cute name!

The red cardstock is Coordinations and the green is unknown.. my mom threw it across the table at me.. hehe.. might be SU... but not 100% positive.

The stamp came from Robyn's Fetish - our fabulous July sponsor. The best thing about digital stamps is that you can resize them to suit your needs. This tree measures 4 inches by 5.5 inches. I Stickled the ornaments and star. I absolutely love this tree and know that it will be in my boys' scrapbooks many times.






We hope that you will head on over to the Critter Challenge Blog and enter your creation for a chance to win our monthly draw. Every time you play with us you get a chance to win from our fabulous sponsor. This month's generous sponsor is Robyn's Fetish make sure you check out her fabulous digital stamps!

Great page! I love how you cut out the tree and popped it up. I can just imagine you creating this page and having your mom tossing you some green paper. Fun creative memories!
