Arghhh!! It Be Time To Crop!!!

Yo Ho Matey's! It be time to crop! Come on over to Treasured Scrapbooking and join us for our week long 'X Marks The Crop.' We'd love to have ya!!! Here is the direct link to the challenges/games:

My challenge for the crop is called 'Drink Up Me Hearties, Yo Ho.' I asked that you base your creation around a tropical drink (more info on the TS board if you wanna play). I chose 'coconut milk as my inspo behind this layout. I used my Cricut Printing Press cart to cut my circles and ring. I also used my new Martha Stewart continuous loop border punch....it is so awesome! Yall know my addiction to those punches and I am ashamed to say I have given in to the addiction again! I've already bought the loop system, spiderweb system, frosty village, graveyard, and turkey dinner ones! Shhh! Don't tell my husband! LOL. Anyways, back to the layout. I also added in some bling around my circle and Stickles glitter glue to my alphas, which are Thickers by American Crafts. This is Carter running and playin in the surf on the beach at Gulf Shores.

'Wave Runner'


Also, I have a few more things debuting today. This next layout is for my DT at The Chirper Challenge blog. We are highlighting the 'New Arrival' cartridge this week. If you would like to join in on this fun challenge, go here:
I used NA for my train. I also brought in some stitching, toile, ric rac, brads, and alpha stickers.
'In TRAINing'



Also, it's Monday and you know what that means!!! Another fun challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot! This is one of my fave blogs! Come on over and join us:
This week we are having a sketch challenge and the sketch was designed by yours truly! Giggle! I love creating sketches and am so thankful I was asked to create one for the blog. The sketch is on my sketching blog too if you want to see it. I created a layout using the sketch. I used the MS border punch again. I also embossed the circles with the Fleur De Li's embossing folder. I brought in some stitching, ribbon, bling, and alpha stickers too.
'Grin'


That's all from me today! I plan on croppin' all week along with the 'X Marks The Crop' at TS, so lots more to come!
Yall have a wonderful day and thank you for stoppin' by!!!! Happy Croppin'!
Pin It!

OMG, Aymee, these are all gorgeous! I love the train l/o and that precious baby in Grin. Your TCS sketch inspired me to do a layout, and now here I am, stuck in layout land. Working on my 4th one. For me, that's a record!
