Erica's Craft Room 100 Cartridge Blog Hop - Day Two

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

You should have come here from Laura's blog. If not, you will want to start at the beginning with Erica at Http://MyCricutcraftroom.blogspot.com

For today's hop in my continuing effort to create more layouts, I have created this one using four different cartridges. Isn't my granddaughter just so adorable in her tap outfit for her recital? They performed a dance for Little Bunny Foo Foo. Now she is also in ballet and I can't wait to see this year's recital that will happen in May.
Here is the recipe I used to create this layout:

Twinkle Toes - little girl Image #2 cut at four inches. I used my Gypsy's hide contour feature to hide the face. I also cut her hair down on the top. She had a huge amount of hair! I used the extra parts cut off to make her hair longer in the back to mirror Taylor's hair. I also used a marker to add dimension to the hair. I added detailing to her dress with my white Signo Uniball pen and added a ribbon so the little paper doll matches Taylor's outfit. The face is a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids stamp. I colored in her eyes with the white pen and added chalk to her cheeks.

American Alphabet - I cut the rabbit at 3.50: and then cut his ears off to make the bunny ears for the little paper doll. I cut this twice - in pink and in white and pieced them together until I got the desired result.

Shall We Dance - The word "Dance" and its shadow cut at 1.25
The word "Recital" and its shadow cut at 1.50

Love You A Latte - Pink layer cut at 7.25 x 4
Green layer cut at 7.50 x 4
Again, I used my Gypsy to alter the shape on cut #7. It originally was more squared and I stretched it so my words would fit. I also hid the cupcake.

You can click on the photos to make them larger to see all the details

For this month, I also am still trying to finish my advent calendar so it will be all ready for next Christmas. I know many of you asked me to show pictures of the rest of the pages. I am still working on getting pages 19 - 25 done. Here are photos of pages 13 - 18. I will post the rest as soon as I get time to finish it.
Winter Frolic - Bird house
Winter Frolic - Christmas tree
Paper Trimmings - Peachy Keen Stamps - Snowman
Simply Charmed - PenguinWinter Woodland - SkateSimply Charmed - Santa

Your next stop will be at Lisa's blog where I am sure she will have something great to show you!

Happy Hopping!
Tracy

I am SOOO EXCITED about this 100 Cartridge Blog Hop giveaway This would be a GREAT start to my collection of cartridges, as I just recently purchased the E2 & am in dire need of cartridges!!! I purchased the Everyday Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for myself for Christmas. Other than that, I only have the 2 that came preloaded into my new E2. I have a LONG way to go!
THANK YOU for your consideration! I look forward to coming back to your blog to see more of your clever creations! :*)
