Throwback Thursday Guest Designer

Good morning crafty friends. I am so excited today because Emma from My Creative Time asked me to be a guest designer for her Throwback Thursday Challenge. I was so honored when she asked me and am so happy to have the opportunity to design with her and the Design Team this week. This week the challenge is to create a scrapbook page or two page LO can be 6×6, 8×8, 11.5×8, and 12×12. The twist is it has to have cuts from a cricut lite cartridge. Here is my LO

I really need to practice taking pictures of LO. I don’t know how you all get it to fit in the frame and have it be so close up. Here is a close up of the first page

These pictures were taken at the Bronx Zoo. Emily is sitting in a big huge birds nest that is inside the childrens zoo (not a real nest). I used Live Simply for the title and the Butterfly. The photo mat is  a tag from Lacy Labels, enlarged 5 inches. The nest and eggs (embossed with Polka Dots cuttle bug folder) is from Sugar and Spice. The cute little birdie is hand made. I stamped I am so egg-cited from Emma’s Color Me Happy stamp set on a tag cut from Lacey Labels. The sentiment could not have been more perfect because my when my daughter gets happy she will say I am so excited like 50 times in a row. I finished it off with Caribbean twine.

This is a fun little play area inside the children’s zoo. There is an underground tunnel that the kids can crawl through then pop up in plastic tubes and all around them is prairie dogs (you can see the top of my husband head). Why the rabbit you ask? Because that is what my daughter calls them, and there is no convincing her otherwise. I think it confuses her because there is carrots and lettuce spread all over their little play area. My husband decided to come down into the craft room when I was working on this LO and he said you can’t do that! They are not rabbits! He does not get it. Then he starts looking at Emma’s stamps, pulling them out all over the place. He really really got on my last nerve. So I told him to go away and of course he got insulted. So I said don’t go away mad, just go away. He is starting to get into this crafting thing a little too much. 🙂 I thought that was funny so had to share. Here is what I used for the second page. The explore, , and flower are all from Live Simply. The photo mat is Lacey Labels. The little carrot and bunny is from create a critter. The cute face is Cute and Cuddly Face Assortment PK-440. I stamped Bunny Crossing also from Color Me Happy stamp set on the journaling tag. It is two separate stamps so I stamped Bunny on the top and crossing on the bottom. The twine is Blossom.

I hope you enjoyed my LO. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Please be sure to head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the awesome design team came up with. You will also find Mr Linky and all other challenge guidelines there. Have a great day:)
