Sprinkler Fun Under the Sun LO

I was thrilled to get the chance to make a layout for a few challenges today.  Cooking with Cricut is a color challenge in honor of National Gingersnap Day!  I chose to use the colors Tangerine, Yellow, Green, Kraft, White and a few others in between!  Throwback Thursday is also a color challenge this week.  The challenge is to use an old cart on any project of your choice and incorporate the colors Yellow and Green somewhere in the project!  Many of you asked for me to do more layouts so that is what I am sharing today!

Not as detailed as my Pool Party LO but I do love these colors together!  I used my Gypsy to weld the title together and tilt the letters in different directions!

I also managed to do some sewing on this one!

I added some buttons with Lemon Drop and Mandarin flavored (ok colored) baker's twine.

For my "Old" cartridges, I used Cuttin Up for the font and Everyday Paper Dolls for the sun.  I outlined the Cricut cuts with a black pen to make them stand out.

Oh look at all those layers! The texture is phenomenal. I just love seeing layouts - and this one has such a great flow. I really like how all the photos are together. I usually scatter mine all over my pages, but the way you did it really lets your eye go across all the photos in a row to see the variety. I will have to try that myself very soon :)
