Cricut SEPTEMBER MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Window Dressing Challenge!

This month the criteria for the challenge is:
For this next challenge, we want to see you give your next project a “window” element of some kind. Almost like you are dressing your own window into your project and include atleast 2 Cricut Image Cuts.

My precious granddaughters, Glory & Libby, love to play in the "pretty room" aka the formal living room. It has a large bay window and they love to look out the window. I took the picture of then in front of the window in their pretty dresses on Valentine's day.
The chairs are cut from the Sentimentals cartridge.  
The table, vase, and some of the flowers are cut from the Serenade Cartridge.
The altered window (center window panes cut out) is from the Christmas cartridge.
The valance at the top of the window is from the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge.
The curtains are from the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art Cartridge.

Love My Flowers

I wanted to share my love of flowers.  Currently, my favorite in my garden is my Hibiscus plant.  It has bloomed all summer long and the flowers are bigger than my head, lol!

The first picture is on a day that five flowers bloomed at the same time.  The second picture is the flower in comparison to my hand (I am 5' 8" tall).

August Magazine Challenge - AUGUST COSMO CRICKET CONTEST!

The inspiration for this contest is Cosmo Cricket products.

My darling granddaughters were having their last bubble bath in "Grandee's" big tub before leaving to live in Germany (their dad is in the military).  The jets create so many bubbles and Glory and Libby had the best time in the tub.  When I saw the Cosmo Cricket paper Salt Air it was perfect with the colored bubbles.  I love, love this paper.
I hope you enjoy the scrapbook page as much as they did the bubbles!

Cosmo Cricket has been with us from the beginning, so we are super excited about this contest. They always produce such fabulous product that fits perfectly with the Cricut and Cuttlebug machines. This month’s contest will be a fun way to put all of your favorite things together.
