The challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut this week is called "The Great Outdoors": Create a project with an outdoor activity. We just recently got back from a trip to the river with family and I knew exactly what photos I wanted to use on this project (and what paper I wanted to use...this super-cute fishy paper from 3 Bugs In A Rug)!
The Mess Maker had her first fishing experience, which lasted all of about 1 minute...the moment the fish came out of the water she took off! Oh well...she takes after her father. :)
For this layout, I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the fish and Plantin Schoolbook for the title. I added an eye brad to the fish, and cut a hook and added twine, wrapping the end around the "i" in "fishin'". The letters in "fishin'" were embossed with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder.
To finish, I pleated some fabric ribbon and added brads to secure it. I threaded several buttons and adhered them randomly. And I printed the journaling, cut it into strips and then adhered them at the bottom of the page.
This layout is based on a sketch by Pencil Lines, found HERE:
Thanks for looking and be sure to head over to FCCB and check out the prize up for grabs this week!
Happy Crafting!!! :)
