It's Scrapbook Saturday at My Cricut Craft Room
If you didn't start there please go back so you won't miss any of the great layouts created by Erica's

My layout today is about 'my boys' and their first experience showing pigs at our county fair.
Nana...that's me and Papa sponsored them this year in the County Fair Swine Show & Sale and they made us very proud.

I used layers on the gypsy to create the banner~
County ~ Font feature ~ 2.53 (each letter)
Scalloped Flag (bottom layer ) #50 (font feature)  1.66-2.65
Solid Flag  # 49  (font feature)  1.41-2.53 ( layer in between in color you want letter to be)
FAIR ~ (Font Feature) ~ 5.63-1.75   Cut two, one in red and one in white. ( I offset the red on the white)

Paper and other I used~ 
Paper is Just Dreamy 2 by Christy Lyle & Zoe Pearn by My Mind's Eye
Cream background cardstock from stash.
Peaches and Creme cotton twine

I used white crushed velvet flock by Doodlebug Design  over pink cardstock for my pig.
I printed 'NANA'S PICK' on copy paper, then applied repositional glue to the flag and placed it over the print and put it back in the printer to print on the flag. Removed from copy paper and placed on blue ribbon.

Scrapbooking is my favorite and I've been doing them for a while but I just started using Cricut to create my layouts.  I'm getting more and more comfortable only using the Cricut and I'm really loving it.  I have to say the more familiar you are with your carts the easier it comes together.  After joining My Cricut Craft Room I'm learning to love card making too...I just need more practice, I definitely get the inspiration here!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great Scrapbooking Saturday!
