MAG Challenge #41 - Sweet Treats (Pg. 45)

Hello My Friends,
It's Me again and yes it's that wonderful time over MAG Challenge by the Page, where this week the showcase of this challenge page is "Sweet Treats - Pg. 45".
Remember: ...for MAG Challenge you cannot use any other Cricut cartridge, page or cut from another cartridge (even if it was left over from another project or stash), only cuts from the specified page.  However, your are free to use all the embellishments (brads, ribbons, chipboard, eyelets, stickers, stamping, letters...etc.) and other treasures from your stash!!!

When I saw this page I knew exactly what I wanted to create. My god-daughter is having her first baby (due in December) and she recently found out that It's A Boy. Soon to be named "Cayden" when he arrives. We are ALL thankful it's going to be a boy, we don't think she could handle having a girl because she's too much drama You'll probably be seeing a lot of Baby themed projects whenever I can fit them into what I'm doing because I'll be making some things for her and the baby to give to her at the shower.

Ok, back to MAG... I Love, Love, Love this Challenge Blog as many of you know. It certainly makes you think outside of your normal Cricut Box. Not to mention it's a perfect way to start using some of those items in your Stash. Goodness knows we all have plenty in our stash to use. Come join us over at MAG and check out the other projects my fellow DT members have in store for you and be sure to leave them come Blog Love Comments. OHHH, Oh, Oh... I Forgot one of the main features of this frame, it was Cut & Made from a Cereal Box before being covered in some wonderful papers. After looking around, JOIN IN ON THE FUN!!!

I created a Baby Frame for my Inspiration. Thank Goodness for the GYPSY (if you don't have one, you would want to put this on your Christmas list) it was a life saver! I don't think I could have created this without it. I took the bottom layer of the crown and stretched/re-sized it to creat the frame. There were a lot of re-sizing and cuts going on with this project, but it was a Labor of Love I'd do all over again. Hope you enjoy!
