Being Adorable is Dogs Play-SOUS die cut reveal

Suprise!! well, us girls over at SOUS have been pondering up some new ideas on how to get the most out of our die cutting machines and we thought to start having die cut challenges in between the sketch challenges.. Brilliant, yes I know..LOL
You can stop by SOUS for more information, but just quickly wanted to share what I have created for our very first dye cut challenge.. Our theme for this challenge was "PLAY".. you can interpret that  anyway you want to, I used the word "PLAY" on my layout and tried to make it fun.. 
Here is my take on our very first challenge:
The photo is of our pup, Jery aka little Fckr..LOL  and yes, he answers to that name everytime, comes running with his bushy tail a wagging..LOL
But, my daughter snapped this photo of him begging to go out in the back patio one winters day.. He just looks so sweet and innocent, and trust me when I tell you , he is anything but ...I love him regardless..

as for the die cuts, I used my Cricut Imagine and my Nate's ABC's cartridge, except the hollow circle is George and Basic Shapes..

and for a few close ups:

and for supplies used:

Cricut Imagine die cutter
Cricut cartridges:  
Nate's ABC's (dog, dog and wagon, food bowl and ball, font)
George and Basic Shapes (hollow circle)

papers by: Echo Park (Playground collection)
cardstock: green, blue, orange and red
white gel pen 

wow!! that was a semi short list, but I basically concentrated on one main cartridge and those cuts on the Nate's ABC's are so super cute...will have to play with that one more often...
Okey then everyone, that was my take on our very first dye cut challenge.. Do stop by SOUS and see what the other ladies have created using the same "THEME".. you won't be disappointed!!
Hope everyone has a great and creative weekend..

  7. Awww this LO is adorable. All the cuts you chose are almost as cute as your Jerry, and what a fabulous title too! Your dog looks just like my Golden Retriever, Sammy, that we had when I was growing up. I think that is so funny that he answers to that little nick name you gave him. Great LO Nanne, totally made me smile.
