Cricut Circle Blog's Weekly Challenge #19 - the Whatevah! Challenge

Have I mentioned how much I love my Cricut Expression?  Well, as if I didn't already love it, I was recently clued in to their membership based blog that has weekly and monthly challenges!!!!!

So I decided to take a gander and enter this week's weekly's theme is Whatevah!

Basically, I had to cut a shape from one of the cricut cartridges three times and use it in whatevah way I wanted, so I decided to take advantage of some extra photos I had from an album I just finished.  I used three images from three different cartridges and made sure to use triple versions of each.

Welcome the cuteness of Aasha!

What I used to make this adorable page:
  • Karen Foster paper - Sugar Sweet
  • Bo Bunny paper - Archivers limited edition pack (included pages from Flutter Butter, Delilah & Alissa)\
  • Flower cutouts - Stamping cartridge
  • Butterfly cutouts - Storybook cartridge
  • Leaf cutouts - Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge
  • Tim Holtz distress inks - Dusty Concord, Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint, Pumice Stone
  • Tsukineko Shimmer - Copper Sheer
  • Alphabet stickers (no longer had the brand for either the green or purple letters)
I also took a stab at doodling on this layout a bit more than my last attempt.  I added some contrast to the butterflies, a flight path, and highlighting on the polka dots.  I also made sure to journal on the page which is a habit I'm trying to ingrain in my scrapbooking (you should always try to add some journalling to your pages).


  1. You're daughter is ADORABLE!!!

    Thanks so much for the comment on my blog and my layout. I too do not enter very often. I am my worst critic. I think your layout is wonderful. Keep entering, remember that they are random winners!! Everyone will win at some point. It is really exciting though.

    Glad to have found your blog, I am your newest follower!!! Welcome to the Circle!! I hope you love it as much as I do.

  2. Awwww - thanks for following, Liza! Unfortunately for me, this is not my little munchkin (I don't have any yet)....but she's part of my circle of little bugs that I adore to scrap about.

    P.S. I can't believe they are random winners (though I guess that's more fair). Happy that yours randomly won!
