First challenge and First follower

Yippy!!! I finished the layout for my first challenge at K Andrew Designs. She also became my first follower today. (technically yesterday since it is past midnight) I was so excited.

It was so much fun working on this project. I used some files from her store because I don't have many carts. I heard about the sale at Menards so I told Morgan the first thing when I woke up that I wanted to go. They only had 4 available but I got "Stretch your Imagination".  They had 2 with alphabets and I can't remember the other one. I liked it also but Morgan was with me and I think he would have shot me if I got both of them. My main selling point when I got the Cricut was that I wouldn't have to spend money on carts because I got SCAL so I only have the one I got today and the one that came with the machine. Slow and steady wins the race though. :-)

I used black vinyl because I don't have ANY black paper (can you believe it) I also used some glow in the dark vinyl for the windows and traced the ghost with glow in the dark paint. The whole layout is on an 8 x 10 canvas panel that I got at Wal Mart. They had 3 - 3 packs for less than $4. I couldn't believe it, that is only about 44 cents a piece and you can't get a good piece of background paper for that price. I just need to get a picture to add to it and make another one so that Bryce and Kylie each have their own.

Can you tell I have a little bit of ADD with my bouncy thoughts. Sometimes I can't keep up myself.

This is absolutely AMAZING! I agree with you--I dont' have many cartridges either, and use my scal 99% of the time, but it's fun to have a few cartridges here and there when we find some we just love. LIke I found the Halloween carts!
This is so cute and the fact that you used vinyl--and they even have glow in the dark vinyl? Please share where you found that, my boys would LOVE that!
Thanks for playing the challenge with us and I hope if you have time, you can make another project to share in the challenge with us!
I hope you win the cartridge!

All the best,
