Penguin Page

I am not sure if this ever made the post to Erica's Craft Room...   but I thought that I would post it anyway...
While my hubbie and I were in Cincinnati for the Cricut Circle meetup, we went to the Newport Aquarium.. and we got to go behind the scene and pet the penguins...   it was so neat....

here are a few of the pictures that we took.... 

I cut the penguin from the Animal Kingdom cartridge...  I believe that I cut it at 8 .... 

I used stickles like in clear and made it shiny...  I was going for the wet look...

I am not sure if you can see it or not...  but I put a pop up tab under the little penguin... so that he would sit up a little bit....

  Hope that you enjoyed my page this time...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. to everyone..

Theme Thursday.... Ocean

Today is Theme Thursday...  and today it is dealing with Ocean things...

  He is my submission...

To start with I cut the waves...  and I cut 8 total, from the Pack Your Bags Cartridge. 
the waves were cut a 7"  from layer 1...  I then inked the edges for a little effect.
I also put one layer straight on the page and pop dots the other two.

the ship was cut from the Pack Your Bag Cartridge @ 4" <ship4> and all layers

The dolphin was cut from Life's a Beach Cartridge at 2"  and the same for all layers
On the layer I used a silver glitter pen to give him a  wet look..  I placed him coming out of the water.

the fishes were cut from the Traveler Cartridge from Creative Memories, and
was cut @ 1 1/2" from all layers..  I then inked them a little to add defination..
The little whale is from the Pack your Bags Cart..  and he was cut @ 2" and so was his
little water cut out...
The 3 Hour Tour title was cut from the Alphabet that comes with the Expression 2
from Creative Memories..  and was cut @ 1"

Hope you liked my idea...

 You should have come from Ricki Sholler's blog at  If you are starting at my blog, you will want to start at Kat's blog so you dont miss any of the great layouts.  When you done hopping, you will want to go to Erica's facebook page (http://ericascraftroom/) and leave a comment on her page.  We will be randomly selecting someone from those comments to win blog candy.

    Here is my page, we were asked to create a 8x8 page, and an album will be constructed for Erica to fill in with her pictures. 

 For those that know Erica or even for those that don't...  She loves Zebra stripes...  She has the only Imagine machine with Zebra strips...  LOL   You can stop her machine from a mile away..  And it looks GREAT!!!!!    So I decided to do a page with her machine on it.

The machine was cut using the Cricut Everyday Cartridge, a Circle Exclusive..  and it was cut at 3",  including all layers. 

 Erica is also a Cricut Addict...  LOL  Aren't we all????   So I thought that was only fitting.  This was cut at 3" also..  and from the Cricut Everyday Cartridge.

Scrapbook Saturday with Erica's Craft Room

Hello everyone,,,  I have submitted a new double scraapbook page with Erica's Craft Room..  Hope you enjoy it...

   My Chillin by the Pool pages were doen using the Pack your Bags cartridge...

 First I cut out the Lady @ 4 1/2 and all layers too...  but I only cut out for her eyelashes..  I didnt want to waste paper knowing that it was going to be covered up anyway.. So I started the cut and stop my cricut after her head was done..

of course, I changed the color of her hair... to match mine...    and i used one of the flowers that I cut out for the man's trunks on her bathing suit <shorts> layer 2 cut at 2 1/2...   I always used a little stickles on her drink.

The man was cut @ 8 1/2 and all layers...  I did cut the umbrella off because I didnt want it on my page.. and I cut out <man-s> but I only used the shape of hair...  I wanted him to have dark hair like my hubbie...
for his shorts  <shorts> layer 2 for flowers on man's shorts was cut @ 1 3/4...  and also <shorts> layer 1 @ 1 3/4 for man's shorts again.... 

Chillin by the pool phrase was cut 2" for all layers...  I used glitter aqua paper to look like water...

<sun> was cut at 2 1/2 for all layers...  but I didnt like the small circles for the cheeks ...  so I did my own.. by hand..

  To make the pool  I just cut gray cardstock to look like concrete..  You can cut it to fit your page.. and then I cut the water about an inch or an inch and half smaller from some paper I found that looked like rippling water... 

I can't wait to add my pictures to this page...  My hubbie took a photo of me at the pool reading a scrapbooking magazine, of course... It will look great... 

Thanks for coming by and checking my page....  don't forget to also check out Erica's Craft Room for other designs from other in the design team...

Good Morning everyone...

  Here is my submission for Festive Friday with Erica's Design Team....  I hope you like it...

I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge... to make all the cards..  only 2 shown..

I cut <shape2> at 1 3/4 inches, it states this on the stamp cover...  and I chose to stamp "Happy Holidays" from the December 25th stamp set.  And I stamped at it using Vineyard Berry ink.

I cut the <leaf3> holly leave at 2 1/4 inches...  and then stamped it with New England Ivy ink from the Holiday Stamp set.  I did not use the berries.

I then stamped in the inside with New England Ivy with "Wishing you a Christmas filled with Love" from the Christmas Love stamp set.

Remembering September 11, 2001

I hope that on this day of remembering the terror attacks that took place in New York City, Washington DC and Shanksville PA.   I hope you are with your families and friends and thinking of those who didn't make it home to their loved ones. 

Please remember how you felt that horrible morning...  Now invision what others felt when they knew their loved ones were gone. 

Take this time to let the people you love know it...  And remember that in a flash it can be gone. 
Let the little stuff go, don't sweat the small stuff...   And always say, I love you, I miss you, and Thank You.. because it might be that thing that person hears or you might say to that person.

Say your prayers tonight and remember all of those that were lost and our military members and their familes. For they are reliving this day over and over again..

Thank you for reading my blog.  I really appreciate it..  And even though I haven't met most of you, I love you.
