Snow Much Fun

I finally got around to completing a layout. I used my new Winter Frolic cartridge. This was the first snowfall of the season for us. The boys had a great time making tunnels and forts in the snow.

I won't grow up!

More Disney pages.

Paper: Once Upon a Time stack

Cart: Mickey Font and Paper Doll Dress Up

Peter Pan: Scal file (This is not my file. This is a link to where I did get the file from.)

Captain Hook: Scal File

This layout was originally going to include Mr. Smee. I made a cut file and cut out all of the pieces. I had to leave him on my crafting table half finished to go to work. When I came back he was gone. I couldn't find him anywhere. I eventually gave up looking and didn't cut him out again out of spite. I will share the file in case you have better luck than I do.

Zooballoo Challenge Card

Cynthia on the cricut message board has started a weekly challenge. This week's challenge is to use the cricut cart Zooballoo.

This is my creation. I used the card cut on the cartridge with the matching tree overlay. I cuttlebugged the base and added flower soft to the leaves. I backed my tree with red felt. The bird is a dollar stamp from Michaels.
