SYI Challenge #4 Ice Cream

Since La and I are walking through Stretching Your Imagination cartridge, we decided to join the Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge for the SYI Ice Cream cone.  Here is my take:
Poor thing she is not going to get to eat that ice cream, but her little dog is!   LUCKY DOG!

Yummy!  You can see La's Here.  I like hers a lot!
Hers looks delicious.  Mine is a sticky mess. ha ha ha.

SYI Challenge # 3 = Paisley

The 3rd cut from Stretch Your Imagine with Look @ La is the Paisley Cut.  I used the short and tall versions of the cut and also used the inside pieces to continue to add detail to my paisley page card. 

I don't have a sentiment yet.  It could be many things. Walking through the SYI cartridge has been a new eye opening experience with me and this oldie but goody cartridge

It's a ZOO out there

Challenge #20 - at Fantabulous Cricut was to make a project using an animal.

This is a toilet paper roll mini album.  I used the tutorial from my fellow Design Team Member, Lori Coughlin at Living in Organized Chaos

I used Create a Critter and Animal Kingdom to make this toilet paper roll mini album.  There are 5 toilet paper rolls in this album.  I pressed them flat with a bone folder and put them in a phone book, setting it under my cricut for a few days to get them flat. 

I used mostly cricut papers and various ribbons.  I tied each of the tags to the inside and onto the eyelet to keep the tags attached to the right slot.  I figured it might be frustrating if you are reading it with a kid and the tags kept falling out or you pulled out woof-woof when it should say tweet-tweet. 

The DT got to use JOYSLIFE.COM pun stamps for our cards, but mine are stuck in customs so I didn't get to use mine this time but I will soon! 

Even my DH liked this project.  It was lots of fun to repurpose this item. Come join us at Fantabulous Cricut with your animal!

Is it HOT where you at?

 I was having a kind-of corny day, I imagined a corn cob sitting on a chair enjoying the AC.  Then I wondered what if it wasn't..

Might as well get out some salt and butter.

My friend told me that at a farm down south it got so hot that the corn in the fields started popping and the cows thought it was snow and froze to death.  Ha ha ha.  How's that for southern humor.  Hope you have a cool day!

Christmas in July

Challenge #19 at Fantabulous Cricut is Christmas In July:
Create a Christmas theme project, perhaps something to get ready for the upcoming holiday.

I love Snowmen.  My DH will tell you that the minute it snows for the first time, I will be out there building one!  When would be a better time to make a snowman than in the HOT July sun, when you just dream of a little cool.  Oh, thank goodness for air conditioning and the  Cricut.  I love how the little guy is wearing the moose hat. Ha ha ha. I crack myself up.

Tuscany Sunflowers

The scrapbook sketch over at Practical Scrappers is:
So I decided to scrap my pictures of the Tuscany Sunflowers

I used Digital Daisy papers from Daisy Paper Trail, Cricut Cuts from George and Plantin' Schoolbook, stickers and rub-ons from stash.  

I was so excited about getting to see these sunflowers in bloom this year.  I saw them last year but was not able to get down among them for pictures.  This year, I was eye to eye with the bees and the sunflowers were over my head.
