Cooking with Cricut Challenge 20: Spring Forward: Design Team Project

It's time for another challenge over at Cooking with Cricut.  This week, our theme is Spring Forward and you need to make a project that includes a clock or timepiece on it.  Also, be sure to use your Cricut.  Be sure to check out all of the design team projects and get your own project entered here: http://www.cookingwithcricut.blogspot.com/

For my project, I decided to make a layout.  I used quite a bit of cartridges for this layout.  I used the Create a Critter Cartridge for the grass (which I chalked) and for the worm (which was cut with glitter cardstock).  The flowers were premade out of felt that I added to the bottom and I also added some ladybug and bee stickers around the flower area.  Next, I used the Simply Charmed cartridge for the bird (cut out of glitter paper and outlined in black).  For my time piece, I used Designer's Calendar to cut the clock face and hands.  Instead of making it a regular clock, I made a section for each of the seasons on the clock.  Finally, I used Storybook for the frame and Once Upon a Princess for the title. 


I am also entering this into the Creative Sister's Challenge - Think Spring - You can find the challenge here: http://www.pattilynncreations.blogspot.com/

Jean, this is too cute! I love bright and cheery layouts and I can't believe those flowers are felt, they look like patterned paper.
