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...

Giving Back Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Giving Back Blog Hop!!  We wanted to give back to the person who has given so much to us!  So this is in honor of Erica from My Cricut Craftroom.

 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.

 The little Cricut Bug was cut at 1 1/2"....  Don't we just love the Bug???

Thank you Erica for all you do....  We just wanted to let you know what you mean to us..
