OOYCZ 2nd Challenge

When I saw these photo's on my daughter's fridge I knew I had to use them on a scrapbook page. Thanks to his dad I got copies. My daughter wrote the tag for 'Smiley Riley' and I did one for 'Love me Love my boots'. The papers were made using Photoshop Elements and the embossing was done with the Cuttlebug Paisley folder. I copied the boot and as there was only the left one showing I matted two to look like a pair. I was supposed to use ribbon but the embroidery silk matched so well I used it. All the cutting was done with my Cricut E.
I think I managed to fulfil the challenge except I did not use my alcohol inks. (maybe next time)

My Layout for OOYCZ challenge on the Cricut MB

The first page is a picture of me and my brothers and was taken at my youngest brother's wedding. I love the way one brother has his jacket buttoned up wrongly, and the way my hair was fluffed out by the wind. The groom's long hair and my older brother's pose as he was trying to keep his tie down. The second page has school photographs of my brothers and an older picture of me outside Hampton Court Palace.

This card is for a guitarist friend. The guitar is from free clipart on the web, the plectrums are from TBBM, embossed and the letters are from PS.

It's a cake, but not a cake.

I had been making this 'cake' as a birthday present for my granddaughter and was in the process of decorating it when I saw on the Cricut message board that Okie had made a cheesecake cake box. Thank you Okie, it was just what I needed so I downloaded the cut file. Then I added a cut out scalloped circle to the top and a scalloped edge around the lid. Now I just have to buy some gifts to put inside. One of the cake pieces is smaller than the others as I miscalculated the sizes, but I am very pleased with the result.
The middle picture is the true colour, and I used blue and cream pearlescent card, with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on the flower.
The cartridges used were Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials. The cake is 6" and the box is slightly larger.
You can get the cut file for the box from Okie's blog:-
