I couldn't help myself. I love the Hump Day commercial, and it was the first thing I thought about when it was time to scrap my son's visit to the petting zoo. He was so excited to get to ride the camel, and wanted to do it over and over again. I really like this layout, and how I was able to get 16 pictures on it. I started by cutting the title and the camel using my Cricut. I love the Animal Kingdom cartridge, and wish I had more opportunities to use it. I then used chalk to give the camel some color, using a tan, light brown, and yellow and blending them all together. Next I cut all the pictures to as small as I could, and started layering them on the paper. I wanted all the camel pictures on one page, since that was the highlight of the trip, and the pictures from the petting zoon on the other. I lifted some of the pictures using foam tape, which I think looks awesome and gives the page some depth. I finished it off with some yellow strip washi tape and some little green arrows that I covered using cardstock.

Here is the Hump Day Commercial, incase you haven't seen it!!!
And if you are a Dallas Mavericks Fan, then you will love this spoof on "Hump Day" by Dirk!!!
I bought this great (really I bought a bunch of great) embossing folders that I found on sale for $1.97 each!!!! This one was the one that I wanted to use the most, so I decided that the best thing to go along with a tree would be some little birds. I embossed the tree, and colored it using my decorating chalks and pastel chalk pencils. Then I cut out the birds using my Create A Critter cartridge. The scallop on the bottom is a leftover cut from Pretty Pendants, which I stamped "On your special day." I thought this would make a super cute card for a wedding, engagement, or anniversary. I punched the heart using an old punch that I had, sorry I don't remember. I really like how it turned out and I love how the chalk colors all blend together so well.

It's time for another challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut blog!!! This week the theme is "Set the Scene," you create a project that shows a scene, and don't forget you have to use at least one Cricut cut. I wanted to create something soft and peaceful, so I made a beach scene using my decorating chalks and my Cricut.
I cut out the sand castle, bucket and shovel, and the little sand piles using my Create a Critter and Simply Charmed cartridges. Then I used a red and yellow glaze pen to add a little bit of shine and depth to the cuts. I wanted to create a peaceful feeling, so I created a beach with the water, and a setting sun using my decorating chalks. I really love using chalks. I tend to forgot about them, then use them a lot on a few projects before they get "lost" in my craft room again. To create the "printed on" look of the sentiment. I stamped "Thinking of You" on the card, using Versa Mark ink, before I used the chalk, then I ran a couple of light layers over the stamped image with the brown chalk. I love this technique as it always produces a clean and crisp image of your stamp. I finished the card off by putting everything together, using foam tape on the bucket and one of the plies of sand. I love the way the card turned out.

I am slowly catching up on creating and posting my scrapbook pages. This layout is for my 2011 scrapbook. It was the first time that we took Dallas to a movie, we had no choice....Cars 2 was showing. My son has been a Disney Cars fanatic since he was 2 years old. We have almost every character, the bedding, both movies (and Mater's Tall Tales), a backpack, dishes, toothbrush......you get the picture. On a side note...we went yesterday to see Monsters University and there was a preview for a new Disney "Cars" movie called Planes. Dallas was so excited......great, thank you Disney....now I'm sure we will get to buy a bunch of new Planes charters too :)
Anyway, we had a lot of fun, and I am so glad that I thought to take a picture of him in front of the movie poster. Combined with the ticket stubs, it made a great scrapbook page. I also wanted to tell a bit of the story, but I don't like my handwriting, so I created a pocket using the picture and ticket stubs, and it fits nicely.
To make the page, I used my Cricut and the Disney Cars cartridge to cut out Lightning McQueen and the Cars logo. I added a sticker "2" to the logo to mimic the Cars 2 logo. Then for the background, I used chalk to create a winding road with grass and a sunset. I love using chalk, it's perfect for those times that you know exactly what you want, but can't find it.
