The current monthly challenge for Cricut Circle is to create a “scene” using cricut cuts and since I have been wanting to do something with this photo (possibly my favourite Summer photo!), I decided to go ahead and give it a try! I’ve never really created a “scene” on any of my layouts before… not knowingly lol – I’ll have to go back and look!!
It was fun to create different elements and even characters that worked together on the page. Jaime used to have a big mural of a turtle on her wall when we were in high school so I was drawn to the turtle image in the Life’s a Beach cartridge when I was searching for beachy or pool themed images. I decided to have a Mommy turtle, Daddy turtle, and little baby turtle for Colby hanging out on this page. I used Cuttin’ Up to create the title, and Life’s a Beach again for the waves and sand bucket. I had some thick mulberry paper that I wanted to incorporate for water as well so I used some layers of it behind my cut out waves. Last but not least I added some sparkle to the bottom of the sand with Distress Stickles (I swear this looks better in person than it does in the photo).
Thanks for stopping by!!
