City Chase Part 1

Hi There,

Well it's been a really long time since I blogged. Lots of stuff on the go and I've even had projects to post but just needed to edit them. That's the part I have trouble getting done. I want them to magically go from my camera disk to  my blog.

So I finished scrapbooking this years City Chase. Lots of cricut cuts. The journaling tells the story. I made cricut cuts for some of the events we didn't get pictures for.

All pattern paper is from Making Memories called "Chloe's Closet". I must admit I'm getting tired of that paper pack. I bought it at Michaels 5 or 6 years ago. 18 patterns 36 sheets. I think it keeps multiplying.

As I did the pages I wrote down which cartridges I used, sizing and any other special cuts/techniques I used. (See end of post for info).
Gotta love all the bling I added to the letters and the existing flowers. See that time...only two minutes to spare in crossing that finish line!

Corresponding page...more bling. I liked the arch. Was able to manipulate the size and shape using the Cricut Craftroom.
We were pulling a bus but didn't get a picture of the bus.

Vellum windows and glossy accents for the light on the bus.
Sponged the kangaroo for added texture. Used the markers in the Cricut to outline and add more definition.

There are four more pages of the Chase and then I just finished a new page of Korben. I think it was probably a record for time spent on page. Everything just fell into place. Doesn't happen often.
I'd say "See you tomorrow" but you just never know what is going to interrupt my computer time, but I'll try to stop back and post again soon.
Thanks for reading!
