Samuel Goes to School Layout

Good morning everyone,
So sorry I haven't posted in a couple of days. I have been...ONCE AGAIN...having computer issues. I have such a love hate relationship with my laptop at the moment :-) But none the less I am grateful that I am to this point at least :-)

Today's project was a continuation of the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl-Blog Hop as well as for a guest designer spot over at another Cricutlicious lover's blog. Kassidy from InkingItUpCrazy is another one of "US". She loves her Bug and loves to share some wonderful "Bug juice" Please be sure to hop over there and give here some love!

For this project I used the following cartridges:
A Word Party-Word Builders
Create A Critter
Mini Monster
Gypsy - For the two FREE Gypsy Files: Please see below.
Here is a closeup of the dinosaur. I used my Gypsy to do some "hide Contours" to make the dino more to my personal liking :-) I used my copic markers to color his spikes and circles.
Here is a closeup of the little frog. He is from Mini Monsters. Again I used my Gypsy to do some "contour hiding" to make him a little more "Melin"...lol.
Here is a closeup of the Word Art tag I created. I have it in two style for the FREE download below. I have it wih the colors you see here and then with all black lettering. So if you want to re-create this you will have the little tag :-)
So now for the FREE stuff:
If you would like the FREE Dinosaur and Frog Gypsy Files: Please hop over to InkingItUpCrazy.blogspot.com. She will have a link for you shortly :-)
