Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #1

The time has come! I have been looking forward to these new challenges for quite a while at Whimsical Wednesday. I have finished all my HAVE to projects, and I can finally focus on me. Sorry for not posting earlier this week. I have a million things on my to do list, and to top it off, I hadn’t seen my hubby in quite some time this week either cause we were BOTH super busy. I am hoping tonight we can do something fun, maybe even hit the casino!!

Anyways, since I finally had time this morning, I whipped up a page for the challenge. The these was spring/easter and it had to include a bug or critter. Out here in Washington it is Tulip season. That is what April is all about out here, but the Tulip are not out yet… so I took some pictures last year, and made a layout using them.


I used the worm from Create A Critter Cartridge, and it went PERFECT with this page. I also added some stickles for a little bling. Here are some close ups.



The letters are K & Company. They are kinda felty. I don’t usually use letters they I don’t cut from the Cricut since I am saving money, and they usually match better, but for some reason, I wanted to use these. Plus, I loved this font.

Well I am going to try to fix my lawn mower. My grass is super tall and I can’t get the thing to start. If all else fails, my hubby will be home early from work, and I hope he can get it work. Otherwise we might have to get a new lawn mower… (we are renting so the lawn mower is for us to use, and we don’t technically own it, so I guess it wouldn’t be a terrible thing, I just have to find that Home Depot gift card we got for Christmas…)

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful! I love the colors. Lately people have been creating so many things that were my sisters favorite and tulips were one of them. So this LO made me think of her and smile. I LOVE those letters. I understand what you mean about saving money with the cricut, but there are still so many cute things out there too. Thank you for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday.
