My Cricut Craft Room Sketch Challenge

Today we had a choice of doing a Halloween themed page (It is Friday the 13th after all right?) or using a sketch provided by Erica to create a scrapbook layout. I chose the sketch option. Here is the sketch we were given to work with:
And here is what I came up with:

I found these adorable photos of my granddaughter and grandson that we took one weekend when they spent the night. Here is the story on these photos: My younger son has two dogs and they live at our house. The grandkids are my older son's kids and they adore these two dogs. One of the dogs is a large and very excitable boxer. She loves those kids but also loves to lick them like crazy! My husband Jay and I put the dogs in the cage until the kids had been there for awhile to try to keep things a little calmer. After our older son and our daughter in law had left, the kids wanted to know where the dogs were. Here is the journaling on the layout
"Jay: Honey where are the kids?"
Me: They were in talking to Kyera and Jonny in the cage.
Jay: The dogs are in the living room.

We go investigate and find that Taylor and Kamdyn had let the dogs out of the cage and locked themselves in! Taylor had made signs for the dogs that said i love you Jony and Kyera and she hung them on their cage. Are they not the cutest kids ever?"

For this layout, I used Ribbons and Rosettes for the border down the center of the page. I cut the image on page 31 using the Border 1" x 11" button. I mixed it up a little by using my Gypsy and flipping and welding the border so that it was cut on both sides.

The circles for the title and journaling were cut using Plantin Schoolbook. The smallest circle has a stamp from Pink By Design (it is the Labels set) and the sentiment reads "You Are Loved"

The title was cut at 1/2" using Robotz. I also used my deep cut blade and chipboard to make the letters stand out. I chose Feeling Cagey because the definition of cagey is being crafty, cunning, cute or tricky. I added Glossy Accents to the letters to give them shine and dimension.

I cut the silhouette of the dog from Paper Pups @ 2.41". I also added Glossy Accents to the eyes and nose.

Hope you enjoyed my layout. To see more projects from our awesome new design team members, please go visit Erica's blog and she will have links posted to their projects. You can find her blog at this link:
