My Pink Stamper Design Team Entry

A dear friend of mine convinced me to try out for the My Pink Stamper Design team. Truthfully, I thought about it the last time, but I couldn't seem to muster up enough courage to try out. (as anyone who knows me will attest...I'm my own worst critic! LOL). But this time with her encouragement, I decided to give it a try. There are lots of beautiful entries but only two available spots...so I'm just hoping and praying for the best! Working with Robyn would be a dream come true. But either way, I just hope she likes what I make.

I decided to go with a Valentine theme and make a fun little page for my hubby and I. Other than the title, all cuts were made using the Create a Critter cartridge. I made my own eyes for the two frogs as I wanted them to be nice and big. **And can I just say that anything that could go wrong when I was creating this did? Murphy's Law, I guess. When my layout was completed, I couldn't even find my camera. And where did I find it, you might ask? On my knee! Guess I must be a little nervous...I'm such a goof! ;o) **

Here is my submission:



A close up of the cute little frogs/toads (I used pop dots to give them a bit more dimension)...


And the details to the challenge... in case you'd like to try out too! :o)

Challenge: Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite cartridge using Robyn's favorite colors......
Pink
Green

(other optional color of your choice)

Recipe:

This is such a cute layout. Good luck. I felt the same way about entering and then I decided oh what the hell I've got nothing to lose. It was fun to enter and I prefer sometimes to do a project for a challenge. It is less for me to think about.
