MPS challenge/ Design Team Possibility Submission

Good morning crafters, friends, and family!  I am so excited just to say I even have a chance to become one of My Pink Stampers Design Team Members, as I'm sure so many of you are too!  The challenge was to create either a card, craft, or scrapbook layout using a favorite Cricut cartridge MPS' favorite colors green, brown, and pink, and to explain what it is for and what you used to make it.

I chose to do a two page layout for my second little baby's to be future scrapbook ( whew, that's a mouthful! )

My favorite cartridge, which is also one of my newest cartridges, is the Create a Critter!  Seriously, can those little critters get any cuter? I think not!

I really enjoyed this challenge because I don't always think to use brown, pink, and green together for things, but it turned out so cute!  I chose to add some purple too to bring out the colors in the polka-dot background paper.

All of my embellishments were made using the Create a Critter Cartridge.  I used a white pen for the faces and to outline some of the hearts.  And I felt what little girl page doesn't need a little "sparkle"? So I used my Ice Stickles in "Coffee Ice" on the hearts and the little love bug's antennas and wings!

I double matted with pink paper to help the pictures stand out a little more, and all of the hearts are attached only at the very top or bottom so that I'll be able to slide my pictures in at a later time.  The 5 X 7 double mat on the first page has some extra "bling" added to it by weaving heart brads through sequins and then through the paper.  The bottom part with punched with an EK Success paper edger punch.

And there you have it! Thank you so much for stopping by, and please feel free to leave comments I love reading them!
As always Happy Crafting!
