Boo from Monster's Inc.

Did you ever make something quick just to get it in a challenge expecting to later throw it away?  Haa the jokes on me, I actually like this one.

Monthly Challenge!

On the first day of each month we will announce a new Monthly Challenge. The challenges are designed to inspire you to stretch your creative wings. Have fun with it! You will have the entire month to create a project for the challenge. The project must meet the challenge requirements in order for your name to be entered into the prize drawing.


Tic Tac Toe . . . Three X’s in a Row! That’s the goal in this challenge. Look at the tic tac toe board below and choose three squares in a row. Use the challenge prompts from all three squares to create your project! In Juliana’s sample project below she used the bottom row of the Tic Tac Toe Board; Flower Image Cut, Cuttlebug Folder, and Imagine Papers. We can’t wait to see what you do! This month, in honor of National Scrapbooking Day (May 7th) we will be giving away a Brand NEW Cricut Expression 2: 5th Anniversary Edition to FIVE WINNERS!!!! Yep! You heard me right!

When the InLinkz tool at the bottom of the Challenge Post asks you for the URL of your blog, you can also type in the URL of a gallery you have uploaded your project to, a direct URL to the image (Photobucket, TinyPic, etc.) or even a message board entry where you have inserted your photo. If you receive an error while submitting your entry, look at the top of the screen and there will be three tabs to choose from. One of them will give you the option to upload your image directly from your computer. We are really enjoying your submissions! Keep them coming!

I chose the sun, Gypsy welded shape and the buttons.

I welded an upside down cloud from Pooh & Friends to  a 5x5.5 square from GEORGE that would be glued between a white and blue 5x7 square from GEORGE as my card base.

Then I cut Boo from BEST OF PIXAR at 5 inches will all her pieces (except her little leggins crumpled so he has brown leggins)  I had a bit of issues with the skin also so that got cut from vinyl.

The grass is also from POOH & FRIENDS 2 of them at 1 1/8 inches and 3 at 1 inch.

The sun is from CREATE A CRITTER at 1 3/4 inch.

The #2 and it's shadow was cut from BIRTHDAY BASH at 1 inch.

The sun and Boo were pop dotted.

Everything was cut from scraps so I have no idea on paper color or brand.
