Tropical Vacation

Hi, Crafters!
It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten By the Bug 2.
Remember to always include a 
Cricut cartridge cut or Cricut digital library cut 
on your project plus the current theme.

This week's theme:
Tropical Vacation or Tropical Flowers

I love creating scrapbook layouts! Cricut Design Space makes it so easy.

Cricut Design Space Cut File for this Layout HERE.

Cricut textured cardstock and Close To My Heart cardstock.

Notebook lines, Date, Arrow in triangle all from the July 2016 Stamp of the Month set, From the Notebook. I love stamp of the month sets. You can get them for $5 when you spend $50. They are only available for that one month, so it's an easy way to schedule your CTMH orders monthly and get the current SOTM set for $5!

"Place Photo Here" from a stamp set I won in 2016 with the Straight to the Top incentive for new Consultants.

Cricut Cartridges Used:
Teddy Bear Parade for the vacation bears
Luau for Aloha title and trees

Here's a funny story....
I forgot to put the shades in this Teddy Bear's sunglasses.
But that's okay, just looks like he's wearing regular glasses. Hopefully the sun isn't blinding him too much without his shades.

She is just precious in her hula skirt!
Have you ever been to Hawaii? I haven't. Probably won't ever go, but I thought I could use this scrapbook layout for any vacation we go on.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
We'd love you to come join us at Bitten by the Bug 2 in this week's challenge.

Before you go, check out this month's Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month!
Spend $50 and get this set for just $5. Love a good bargain. This stamp set only available this month so don't put off ordering to get it.
