Cricut FANatics Sketch Challenge #2

Here is the October's Sketch Challenge on the Cricut FANatics blog from Amy of Amy's Digi Scraps.

The challenge is to create a card or layout using the above sketch and you must use your Cricut.

I have been working on my 2006 album forever!  I had a few more pages to do but lost my mojo on working on the album long ago.  This sketch helped me finish the album.  Thank you Amy!

This picture is of my husband's cousin, aunt and Mom.  Three beautiful women in my life.

The paper is from my stash, an old stack I took apart a long time ago.

The page is an 8 1/2 x 11 inch.  The borders are from Ribbons & Rosettes, using the RBBorder 2 feature and cut at 2".  "Beautiful" is from the Lovely Floral cart also cut at 2".

Halloween Memory Game

The little ones in my family have always loved playing memory card games so I created one using my Cricut.

I used 8 1/2 x 11 inch orange and black card stock.  Circles were cut at 2 1/2 inches so I could fit 12 circles per sheet.
From the black card stock, using the Pumpkin Carving cartridge, I cut two of every circle image on the cart.  There are 20 circle images.
From the orange card stock, using George and Basic Shapes cartridge, I cut 40 - 2 1/2 inch circles.
On the orange circle fronts, I stamped a pumpkin image.  You can see the front of the cards in the upper right and left of the photo.
I ran the black image cuts through my Xyron and adhered to the backs of the orange circles.
To play:
Turn all cards stamped image side up.  (I typically let the kids do this.)  Players take turns flipping over two cards.  If it is a match, they keep the set.  Play continues until all cards have been matched.  Player with the most sets wins.
