When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge - Create A Scene

Here is a project I made for Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge - Create A Scene.  I was very excited but kindda reluctant at first.  It took me two weeks to make up my mind whether I will join or not.   It was my family who convinced me and challenged to come up with this project with of course some specific request:

- My son Jack, wants me to create something with Thomas and his friends.
- My daughter Ella, wants girls in it.
- My hubby wants either Christmas or Halloween theme.

I admit it was confusing at first on how I should incorporate everything.  The hardest was coming up with a replica of Thomas.  Attention PC, my son is requesting for Thomas cartridge.  My daughter's request isn't too difficult but then I was against on doing any Christmas or Halloween theme.  I know that majority of the entries will be focus on those themes but alas! I ended up making a Christmas scenario.

Well, enough talking, I am so proud to share with you my project. I really thought it will be difficult a difficult project (not to mentioned my Gypsy was acting stranged) but surprisingly I had a good time.  I think this is one of my best creations...

 
 
 
 

Thanks to Peachy Keen and a little bit of imagination.  I was successful in coming up with a Thomas image and it made my son really happy.  He told me that these LO are his and he can't wait to see his pictures on it.  Majority of the images I used are from Christmas Solution.  I just loved that cartridge!  I made many Christmas project using that.  I'm also proud to say that I turned the milkman into a conductor.  My son won't stop bugging me for a conductor, glad I found the milkman from the Pop-Up Neighborhood cartridge.  Well, what can I say, he's a big fan of Thomas and Friends LOL.

Hope you had fun looking at my LO.  


CARTRIDGE:
CHRISTMAS SOLUTION: train, Santa Claus, elves, freight car, church, church door, wreath, Christmas tree and star and snowflake
WINTER FROLIC: kids, gifts and snowman
POP-UP NEIGHBORHOOD: train station, train stop signs, conductor (milkman)
CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY: frame
PAPERDOLL: railroad
GEORGE: circle
MS Cake: no. 1

Here are some closer look on funny and cute things in the LO:
 My very own Thomas and the milkman turned into a conductor.  BTW, she's a woman conductor...
 Kids...
 See how the girl look so mean?  My kids says if there are nice kids, there ought to be a naughty one on the scene.
 The well detailed church door...
 I used glittered paper for snowy effect.  I added rhinestones and pearls to diec-cut snowflakes.  Snowflakes was attached to the page using a glittered blue and white mini brads.
Love the total effect of the snows.  It add touch to a plain blue background...
 The drunken looking snowman...
 After my kids saw Santa and the gifts, I was told that elves should be in the picture too... Yeah, very imaginative kids...
A lot of things are going on these 2-page layout.  I hope I will be given another chance to do it again...  Thanks to my family who inspire me...
