My Pink Stamper Design Team Call

WOW!  I'm so super excited to be able to join in the fun this time around by 'trying out' for the My Pink Stamper Design Team!  A BIG thanks to Robyn for giving us this opportunity :).  WOO-HOO!  If you haven't submitted a project, you still have time.  You can check out Robyn's requirements HERE and/or I've listed them below:

*You will need to have a blog that you regularly post on for at least 3 months.
*You cannot already be serving on a DT that has product that is a conflict of interest (most DTs are just fine as long as they do not sell product that is similar to My Pink Stamper Original Cricut Stamps idea)
*Your project must be made just for this challenge
*Post a pic on your blog with a full recipe along with what the challenge is about
*This needs to be a new project that you make just for this challenge
*Only one entry per person, please
*You do not need to be a professional but you must have a love for the craft!  :)

Challenge:  Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......

Orange
Turquoise 
Green
Brown
(other optional color of your choice)
 

I have to admit, when I looked at the color choice I thought "Robyn must be crazy!" LOL! However, after creating my entry, I'm in love! This is probably my all-time favorite {double} layout. I kept it simple because I wanted the focus to remain on how lucky we are that we were able to take that picture! {My great-grandpa is still alive and kickin' it in his own house at the sweet age of 94.} It's just such a sweet reminder how important family is :).

 





  

Although I stuck with the color requirement, I did use varying shades of these colors.  My (optional) color was cream!  My favorite Cricut Cartridge {right now} is Cheerful Seasons from Creative Memories; the Dragonfly, Flower, and Font were all cut from there.

This is a great layout. The pictures of your family are very special, you are so lucky to have them. We had 5 generations in our family too for many years actually. It is rare for there to be 5, in any family. We are both very blessed. I am your newest follower. Hugs, Pam at http://craftycards4u2.blogspot.com/
