Howdy, Pardner!

I’m back with another Cricut County Fair cartridge layout . . . this time with a western flair. I have actually scrapbooked these photos before, but when this cartridge came out, I just HAD to scrap them again . . . just for the pure pleasure of playing with these super cute cuts! Yep! Guilty as charged . . . I rescrapped a photo, just so I could play with product . . . guess I’m a true scrappy-addict after all. Bwaahaaa! As if I didn’t know that already. *wink!*

One of the things I get giddy about while scrapbooking is finding ways to take a themed paper collection and use it for something else other than what it was intended for. For this page, I took the dinosaur themed Imaginisce Dino-Roar paper collection and used the items to create the western page. The colors were perfect! The textures were perfect –the brown paper looks like burlap!  The prehistoric plant stickers worked great as desert plants! And the dinosaur track borders reminded me of scuttling lizards.

How cute is this cowboy and cowgirl?! You know me . . . I *HAD* to create a little scene to house them. :) I “weathered” the fence cut a bit by embossing it with my Cuttlebug Machine and Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder.

I’m addicted to using pearl stickers with my Cricut Cuts. They work great for eyeballs, buttons, boot studs, nailheads . . . you name it!

Well, today is a jam-packed weekend here at the Eubank household. I have projects to create, Sunday lessons to prepare, grocery shopping to do, and family to shuttle around. Hopefully, we’ll find a few quiet moments to take in the September weather. At the very least we can roll down the car windows as we run about and enjoy the beautiful September air.

Have a great weekend!

Amused by a Park

Every summer my family and I visit our local amusement park called Lagoon. The pictures I take there are usually from my cell phone and never come out as great as I would like them to, but it’s still a memory I want to capture and remember with my family. On this page I used the adorable Animal Crackers collection by Imaginisce along with an HSN Exclusive Cricut cartridge, the County Fair cartridge. This cartridge is filled with all kinds of western images along with the adorable fair food I used on this page! Gotta love the corn dog and the cotton candy, right?!

New Cricut Cartridges!

Happy Summer, Friends!

My family and I just returned home from our first summer seeing the sights around Southern Utah. We had such a BLAST! In 7 days we say a play, rode horses, visited three National Parks, went on a boat ride, had a dutch oven dinner cooked for us by cowboys, stood in four states at once at Four Corners, visited beautiful red rock canyons where cowboy movies were filmed, went swimming and MORE! I will definitely be sharing some pictures soon.
