Dino-Mite!

I was surfing the internet and came across this awesome challenge blog: Challenge By The Page.  Wow what a great way to host a challenge.  I love this idea and really need to spend some more using all of the pages within my cartridges-- not just my favorites.  I really think this challenge will help me step out of my crafting comfort zone!  I do know my style is pretty fun loving and quirky-- perhaps the more challenges I do the more I will challenge myself ;)  haha feel free to <insert an eye roll> here :) Yes, a challenge is meant to challenge me!  I get it. 

I did of course have no problem using my Create A Critter cartridge and the challenge was to use a cut from page 50 of this cartridge.  So I did-- I will admit this is the first dinosaur I have cut! The paper is from an AMAZING find I found at Marshalls--who would have thought to look for paper there--it was a kit with a bunch of cardstock, ribbob, buttons and a big set of thickers-- for $1.99--what a steal!  I did it as a long card and I think I was quite clever in stamping my sentiment a few times in an open space on the dsp!

Recipe
