Cooking With Cricut Challenge: It's HOT Outside!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to challenge day at Cooking With Cricut.  Our Design Team was challenged to create a project that celebrated water and all of the fun things to do in and around it.  Being a third generation native Floridian, I have been in and around water all my life!  Currently we have a bit more water than we know what to do with thanks to Tropical Storm Debby.  

Here is what I created for this week's challenge:

(Don't forget -- you can click on the image to enlarge it!)

This double 12" x 12" layout will go in my youngest daughter's scrapbook.  It commemorates her very first trip to the beach when she was 14 months old.  Here's the recipe:

Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge --
  • Sand cut @ 11 1/2" wide (Bazzill card stock - Iced Cocoa)
Cricut Every Day Paper Dolls cartridge --
  • Sand Castle cut @ 4 1/2" wide (scrap stash)
  • Bucket and Shovel cut @ 2 1/8" high (scraps)
Cricut Create-A-Critter cartridge --
  • Crab cut @ 2 1/4" wide (scraps)
Cricut ZooBalloo cartridge --
  • Waves cut @ 8" wide (Bazzill card stock - Evening Surf)
Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) --
  • Text - Ravie font cut @ 1 1/4" high (We R Memory Keepers, White Out Collection)
  • Starfish from the Summer image library cut @ 1" wide (scraps)
Ribbon scraps, rhinestones, ink, chalk and pen doodling completed this fun layout featuring my little beach baby.

Now it's your turn!  Link up your water-themed project at Cooking With Cricut this week for a chance at being our next Top Chef!  Head on over and check out all of the wonderful things the other Design Team members created.  Thanks for stopping by!

Jen what a great layout. I love your journaling. That is something I need to get better out. Love that you used so many cartridges to make such a fun layout.
