Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #16: Cute As a Button Sketch Challenge!

This week on the Circle Blog they said "Babies are definitely “cute as a button” with their sweet little faces and tiny features. In honor of our Baby Theme, this week we challenge you to create a SCRAPBOOK PAGE or CARD using the sketch below. Your project doesn’t need to follow the sketch exactly, but it should be apparent that you used it as inspiration. Feel free to turn it on it’s side or move elements to fit what you are doing. In addition to using the sketch, (and at least two Cricut Cuts) we also want you to incorporate STAMPING and BUTTONS (of course!)."

So since I have ALL of Evie's newborn pictures that I need to scrap.... I decided to scrap some pictures from the Pumpkin Farm, LOL! I know, I should have done baby pictures BUT I won these My Mind's Eye Blackbird papers a couple of months ago and I really wanted to use them! Since I'm a 2 page scrapper I decided to S T R E T C H the sketch a bit and I am just THRILLED with how it came out!

Yes, that IS a Pumpkin Man mooning you in the middle of the layout! You just went back to look at it bigger didn't you? Bengston's Pumpkin Farm has some of the BEST decorations! Now to scrap some of the rest of the photos from that day! I cut my title from the Hello Kitty Greetings and Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridges...

Are you wondering where I incorporated stamping in this layout? Check out my ribbon. I actually hand cut the scallop in the ribbon and then stamped the pumpkin row from the matching My Mind's Eye Stamp set (yep, won that too!) and then added little dots along the scallops with my marker. I was really happy with how this came out! If you're wondering where the cute flowers came from... some we in my stash box which is a mix of Primas and Close to My Heart flowers mostly and MOST of them (including the puffy orange heart) are Chick'n Feed from Two Chicks Designs!

Here's a close up of my "Pumpkin" flower... the stem and leaves are a Pine Tree button turned upside down! It's fun to occasionally feel clever when you come up with something like this, LOL!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout! I really had fun making this one and I'm inspired to finish scrapping all of these pics from this outing... now to find the TIME!
