Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Where'd Summer Go?

It's another wonderful Wednesday -- and it is Design Team challenge day at Cooking With Cricut!  The lazy days of Summer are headed out and Fall is on the way!  School started here last week and this weekend kicks off the college football season.  Before you know it we'll be planning Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving menus and Christmas parties!

We didn't go anywhere this summer -- but it sure was busy.  Lots of family events, library trips, swimming and such.  Melin asked the team to come up with a vacation/summer-themed scrapbook layout this week and I decided to capture some of my favorite photos and memories from the summer for my youngest daughter's scrapbook.  Here is what I created:

This is a double 12" x 12" layout.  All of the papers used were from my scrap stash, with the exception of the base paper (12 x 12 Recollections white card stock).

I think my daughter spent most of her time in the pool this summer!  I used the Cricut Pink Journey cartridge for the flip-flops and the journaling tag; Everyday Paper Dolls for the mask and snorkel; Doodlecharms for the watermelon and Popsicle; and Pooh Font for the text.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Head on over to Cooking With Cricut and see what the other Design Team members created and make sure you link up your vacation/summer themed scrapbook layout -- you could be our next "Top Chef!"
