Penguin Cricut Two Page Layout

Good afternoon all,
Here is a layout I made for the a challenge. The challenge was to make something with a beach theme. So here it is. 

I used Life's A Beach for most of the elements. BUT The Penguins.
The Penguins are from the From My Kitchen Cartridge


THEY ARE A STRAIGHT CRICUT CUTS :-) I used my E and only the cartridges.


Here is a closeup of one of the penguins. Sipping his drink, CHILLAXIN'

Here are the other two. One getting ready to surf and one splashin' around!

Here is a closeup of the sun. He came from Life's A Beach too :-)
I just gave him a different face.

Have a wonderfully "Crafty" day!

I am just amazed at how you make these out of a cart that I would never think of using in this manner.

Charlotte Cornett said...

I am going with the Preserves cart. YOU DO AN AMAZING JOB!!

Kayla said...

Well you know how they say you think out of the box? Boy do you think out of the "cartridge". How adorable. I am thinking the Preserves cartridge is the one you have used. How does one see so much in a cartridge other than what is displayed in the book? Great work....Wish my mind thought as yours....I'm still thinking in a box.. not sure I will ever get out...

Cindy said...

TCahal said...

I'm pretty sure it's the Preserves cart...I'm guessing their bodies are avocados, faces are apples, the wings are the apple core shift layer, feet and upper beak are figs with kumquats for eyes? I'm stumped on the lower beak...but they sure are adorable little penguins!! Thank you for the chance to win :o)
