Cricut Circle Sketch Challenge

This is my final entry for the Cricut Circle Blogaversary challenges. This was based off of a sketch. I love how I found this Image on an Imagine cartridge and it's connected together with a phone cord. This is from the Imagine cartridge Better Together. :)

Circle Blogaversary Challenges

It's the one year anniversary of the Cricut Circle Blog. As a result, they're doing different challenges for contests. So each of these is for a different one. One is made entirely with the Cricut Imagine. I printed the two backgrounds from All Wrapped Up. The layer flower is from Country Carnival. I added some Glossy Accents to the flower also. The layout I did was to follow a recipe. The paper is from DCWV Tye dye. Quite fitting for the pictures don't you think? I then used the Phrases cartridge for the Feelin' Groovy. The Peace symbols were from the Car Decals cartridge. I then added some buttons to frame the picture a little (as we needed 3 buttons as part of the recipe) :)Thanks for looking! :)

Cricut Circle - Echo Park Magazine Challenge

The September magazine challenge for the Cricut Circle was to use something from Echo Park. I used their Be Mine collection. Someone had sort of put things into a shadow box when we got married. Scrapbooking was not something I was into back then. I did stamp all my own wedding invitations though. So, I took apart the shadow box and decided to redo a series type thing of shadow boxes. These are sitting on the frames they are going in at the moment. Our wedding colors were a rose pink and a greyish blue so this paperline worked out perfect. I ended up not incorporating any blue in for these three. I do still have one more to do at some point that has our wedding invitation and some other flowers. This was one of the corsages from the wedding, a napkin from the wedding and hard to see I know but some left over lace from my wedding dress. I hand sewed all the beeds etc. on the lace for my wedding dress. I have no desire to do that again. :) The cricut cartridges I used was Elegant Edges for the frames for the pictures. I used Gypsy Wanderings font for the wedding date (hard to see in the picture as it's grey) and then Sweethearts for all the other cuts. Thanks! :) Khrista
