TREE-Die Cut Challenge for SOUS

Happy go  lucky Friday my fellow crafters...As always, I'm happy to share with you a layout I created for our latest Die Cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.. This weeks challenge is to use a TREE on your project.. it can be any TREE and any kind of project.. I decided to make a layout of my son Aaron when he was a toddler.. He was such a cutey-ba-tooty..LOL  I used lots of different elements on this layout, so lets get to the goodies shall we:

don't you just love Echo park papers?.. I can't recall the last time I used so much COLOR on my layout..LOL But had a lot of fun putting this little layout together.. hope its manly enough, but with a little twist of "mommy made it!"..LOL
for a few close ups of the layout:

the bunny's didnt' come out as good as I had hoped, but they look good enough..LOL 

and for the supplies used:

Cricut cartridges:

Pooh and Friends: Trees and grass
George and Basic Shapes: Circle and hearts
Nate's ABC's: font
Paper doll dress up: Bunny's

papers by: Echo park Country drive set (stickers included)
Martha Stewart edge punch
pop dots
black pen for faux stitching

well ladies.. that does it for right now.. do stop by later tonight for the Whimsical Wednesdays Blog hop.. great give-a-ways on that hop.. 
but before you get a chance to scurry off, do stop by SOUS and check out what the other amazing design team members have made using this same TREE challenge.. you won't be disappointed.


  1. Cute bunnies!! great job chalking them (or inking them if that is what u did LOL). Love the retro feel of this line, and the pooh and friends trees fitted it perfectly.

  2. This page is SO my style! Love the title on the circle, the trees, the truck, the bunny, the colors -- everything!

  3. A tree here, a tree there, a tree every where...lol Love that you used a tree back ground paper cool...Such a bright layout I do love the papers! The cute cuts and that adorable picture...Awesome layout!
    Hugs Wanda

  6. Oh my gosh..Wanda has me cracking up!
    I love this as well and LOVE the themed paper (just in case we didn't know what the challenge was, LMBO!)
    I love the colors (I'm a primary color girl I guess) and love the deets..ummm are those bunnies I see? That's the best bunny you could find? hehehehe!

    Love the page my bestie!!!!

  7. I just had to visit and take a closer look at those blue trees! I love your colorful layout and the bunnies look great to me! Thanks!

  8. What a cute and whimsical layout. Another great creation. TFS

  9. What a cute page, Nanne .. and of course, it is manly enough. Do you see flowers? I don't .. all I see is trees and more trees and an adorable truck! Lots of great Nanne details! Love it!

  10. What a great, whimsical, bright, cheery layout! Love the bold bright colors, so energetic and there's no guessing what the theme of the challenge is, lol! I've been on a real bright color roll lately, so I really love this! I love that truck cut too, I actually wouldn't mind having a real old one like that, lol!
