Around the Farm

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to our Friday challenges at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges where we have a new question or theme posted every Friday!  That's 52 projects in 2012 if you do them all!  We thought it would be a neat idea to make all 52 projects part of a mini album... a new page every week based on the question or theme. 

But you interpret this challenge any way you like. All forms of crafting are welcome! 

We are on Week #32 and our theme is "Around the Farm".  When I think of around the farm, I think of farm animals but I have never been to a farm so I couldn't quite figure out what to create.  Then I realized that farm animals weren't just found on the farm.  I remembered that one year we took the entire 3rd grade class to the Del Mar Fair. That was over 100 9 year-olds!  We had a blast!  AND we saw ... wait for it ... FARM ANIMALS!  (Is that enough exclamation points for you???)  We saw horses, pigs, cows, etc.  I haven't had a chance to scrap those photos yets so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to get started.

I ended up creating a 9" x 9" layout.  Now the reason there are no photos is that I couldn't decide whether this was going to stay a 9" x 9"album or whether I would actually turn it into a 12" x 12" one.  Anyway ...

I used paper from our new Clementine paper pack. Just LOVE the colors and thought they totally fit this project. I cut the shaped matte using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find the image on page 61, D1, Accent 3 < z >.  I cut it at 8 3/4"  The photo mattes are 4" x 5".  

I cut those cute little cows using my Create-a-Critter cartridge.  They are on page 60, D7, < Cow > cut at 1 1/2" and 2".

Now for those horses on the top left side of the layout.  I actually cut those using the Artiste!  The cart has these really cool horses that coordinate with the merry-go-round image.  I cut them at 3" and 4".  You can find them on page 50, B10, Shift, Accent 4 < Z >.

Finally, the sentiment on the bottom left comes from the Clementine Complements Canvas Shapes.
