For this challenge we were to make a card or layout with the great outdoors, mountains, camping etc.
I chose to make a 12 x 12 layout. I really like the way it turned out. I did all the pieces on my imagine and I have tons of sheets from various sites with PDF's of RGB codes which I must say is SO helpful. You should print these off if you have an imagine and keep in a binder by your machine because its a lifesaver. I have codes from Stampin Up paper, Papertray ink as well as disney colors etc. I will try to gather up this information and post the links to these sites so if you own an imagine you will love this! It makes it nice when you are doing layers that you can have it all done in a jiffy!

**Sorry for the shadows. I took the pics outside because I get so much better lighting but the screen area put a shadow on the pic.

I used the paper from K&Company called "On the road Postcard"
I used a cartridge I really haven't used since I bought it! Its a solutions cartridge so no layers just a simple mix of items. The cart is "Summer Vacation"
The phrase "Road Trip" was cut at 4" inked with Chestnut brown colorbox ink and pop dotted
The map was cut at 2.5"
The car and camper were cut at 2.5" I tried to add as much dimension as I could so I took the cutout from the inside window area of the camper and inked it and double pop dotted this so it stuck out even further than the camper itself which is pop dotted. I used glossy accents to fill the window area with
The car was pop dotted, inked with the chestnut brown and pop dotted as well and the windows filled with glossy accents. I use alot of glossy accents because I also use it as an adhesive alot of the times. Especially on little items.
The picture areas are both 3x4 with a slightly larger mat beneath them out of kraft paper. All inked with chestnut brown. I used the 1/4" corner chomper on the pieces for the picture area. I used Chocolate twine from the Twinery to just tie a little bow to put on the picture areas.
The little camp fire is cut at 2.5" as well. I cut it twice so that I could cut off the stick portion and layer this so I could make a good flame. I inked the flame with a burnt sienna. Now head on over the Cricut360 to join in on the fun challenge and a chance to win this adorable 6" plush cricut!!!

Just getting around to looking at your layout & it is wonderful. Especially like the way everything pops off the page for a fun display and the background paper is a perfect fit.
