Jumping into the Challenge Ring!!

I finally found a Cricut -Scrapbooking Challenge--Scrappy Saturday with the Bug. I'm hoping to be inspired to use what I have--too many cricut carts!!! Thanks to Amanda and Melissa for getting this started!!

This was the first challenge issued--Anything Goes.
  • Must be a new layout for this challenge
  • Must link directly to the project and not just your blog or gallery
  • Please use a Cricut or SVG cut somewhere on your layout
  • You will have one week to submit your page
Here's my layout:

I used 5 different cartridges on this layout.
  • tree-Stretch Your Imagination
  • alligator-Animal Kingdom
  • Miss.-50 States
  • look closely & scenic route-Graphically Speaking
  • shrub border-Everyday Paper Dolls
I embossed the tree with my Cuttlebug and Distressed Stripes, inked a little with Colorbox Chalk ink. The ribbon is CTMH Chocolate Collection. Most of the cardstock is from DCWV, the rest out of my scraps. Due to my poor photography skills and the snow storm outside, I couldn't get a decent picture. What's really not showing up is the 2 layer shrub border, (pg 77-headwear and accessory 2). I guess I should have inked it, but it was already stuck down when I realized it.

Well, that's it for my first challenge. Hope I followed all the rules. If anything, I was inspired to create, used scrapbook stuff I already had and had fun!!
