On the Cricut Circle blog this month the challenge was to create a project with your choice of BBQ, Picnic, or Patio theme and use the gingham/check pattern.

Normally my hubby and I have some kind of BBQ during the year, this year was no different we had friends over for BBQ and hubby made some wonderful Ribs and smoked a Brisket. Yummy. So I thought I would make this layout -- the only thing is I forgot to take photos, but no worries my friend did take a few just waiting for her to get back home from Germany to share them with me.

I used some new paper that I recently bought - it is from Cutmates, and is so awesome to use on the machines. The paper cuts really smooth and w/o any issues.

The cuts are all from 3 Birds on Parade - love love love the cute cartridge.

The large Bird BBQing is cut at 4", so is the grill.

The momma bird cut at 3.5

The baby bird cut at 3.0

The butterflies are cut at 2.5" (one cut regular and one flipped).

The little buttfly cut at 2.0"

I used the Red/Pink Gingham paper from some of my stash - I think I bought it at Tuesday Morning a while back.

The ribbon is from Joann.

The smoke is some swirled rhinestones from my stash.

The grass is done using Martha Stewart -- Drippy Goo punch

Hope you enjoy

Happy Scrappin'

Fun. Lots of different stuff going on. The grass never used the drippy goo. and to do the smoke in the rhinestones what a clever idea. I really like this cartridge. Good job on the challenge.
