"Crops of Love" Blog Hop: Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of  Cooking With Cricut's "Crops of Love" Blog Hop. This month our designers chose to create layouts for the Crops of Luv Organization. If you came here from visiting Lynden at An Elegant Touch, then you are in the right place; if you just happened by, you'll want to head over to CWC and start at the beginning because I'm the last stop in this Hop!

Crops of Luv works hand-in-hand with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses.  The focus of our two day hop  is to create 12" x 12" double page scrapbook layouts using these themes: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Summer Fun (e.g. swimming), Christmas (yes, they have Christmas every Thursday at "Give Kids the World"), or general Disney themes.

Crops of Luv has some specific guidelines for the layouts. They need to include a journaling block or tag and mats for three 4 x 6 pictures on each page. They also do not want the photo mats permanently adhered to the page.  That way they can flip them whichever way they need to. 

Here is the layout I made:

I used Cricut's Mickey & Friends cartridge for Mickey and Goofy; Mickey Font for the word "characters"; and Cake Basics for the words "Bunch" and "of" and for the circles.  The circle letters are raised with pop-dots.

We hope you enjoyed our creations! We would love for you to participate. You can make a two-page layout following the parameters outlined above and mail it directly to: Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424   S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Since this blog hop is also a challenge, be sure to link your project to CWC/PCW.  If you would like more information about this organization, or would like to make a monetary or supply donation please visit their web site at

Thanks so much for stopping by . . . make sure you come back by tomorrow and hop with us for another fun-filled day of scrapbook layouts -- we start bright and early at 8:00 a.m. at!
