Little Girls- DT project for Whimsical Wednesdays

I'm so happy its finally Wednesday and I get to share a layout with you that I created over the weekend and have been dying to share..LOL
So, us girls over at Whimsical Wednesdays were challenged this week with a "Bring out the Old!" challenge..
meaning we were to use something that you have not used in a long time, or might not have used at all since you purchased it. This can include anything used for crafting whether it is a tool, cartridge, paper, embellishment or technique..

So, I thought about it for a day or two and then rummaged through my Cricut Cartridges.. I finally found one that I had not used in years or at least what seemed like years.. and its my "Sesame Street and Friends" cartridge.. Its one of those cute cartridges you figure you'd get a lot of project made with, but then you realize you have no real use for it..LOL  but, it is cute !!
and I also used a technique that I haven't done in a while, which is chalking all of my die cuts.. once again, it was a lot of work, but I love the way it gives extra dimension to your cuts..
plus, I foam dotted everything (big surprise there)..LOL

So, Here is my project for Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge:
Aaaaw.. aren't they cute?...LOL
and a lot of work to piece together, let me tell you...

This is another layout I designed using the Cricut Craftroom .. 
I absolutely loved seeing the whole layout come to life right before my eyes and this was before I did any cutting.. makes it so easy to pick just the right colors and prints.. Two thumbs up for CCR..

how about a few close ups:

isn't that a cute sentiment and I actually designed this layout with the sentiment in mind.. 
Its from Whimsical Designs "Whimsical Fun!" collection..

so, for the stamps I used:

all I can say, I love these stamps.. seriously!! 
and you all know, I'm not much of a stamper, but these really make it super easy and fun..

Cricut Imagine cartridge:
