Fantabulous Cricut Challenge--Share the Love

I just finished the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Share the Love Crawl...let me tell you, there are some talented folks out there in blog land.  I decided to  enter the crawl challenge with the Valentine project Nina and I made for her class.

It is a mini-coloring book, with four Create a Critter pictures inside.  My photo didn't turn out too great, but that is okay.  The snail, heart, Love, and Special Delivery are all cut from Create A Critter.  Nina picked the color combo.  We made the book by using our Crikits gel pens to draw the animals, four to an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of plain paper.  Then photo copied them and cut them at 4x5.  We took plain white card stock and cut it in half vertically.  Then folded that over the coloring pages and stapled them at the top.  I used my Gypsy to layer the snail, heart, and 'Love' so they would all fit together, then used the layering feature to fill the mats to cut them out.  We assembled them and adhered them to the front.  Nina loved them, and she is so excited to share them with her classmates tomorrow.  It took quite a while to get these done, but I am really glad we did them....but also glad that Phillip just wanted to take Fun Dip Valentine's!  LOL!!!

Enjoy.  Sorry the picture is so bad!
