December CRICUT CRAFT ROOM and Throwback Thursday's contest

For my 2nd challenge of the new year I wanted to do the Cricut Magazine challenge.
I will say I have grown to love the new Cricut Craft Room (CCR) - I bought my mini so I could use the craft room - (not that I couldn't use the CCR w/ other machines; however, I would have to lug them into the other room). I love the portablity of the mini.
Here is the contest rules:
Use the Cricut Craft Room™ design tool to create any project. Contest will open on December17th. Please upload a working link or picture of your project to the blogunder the Magazine Challenge tab. One entry per person. Entry deadlineis Friday, January 13th.
A few months ago we had my daughter's photo taken in her 1st Blackhawks Jersey. Yes she was bought a Blackhawks jersey when she was 1st born. My hubby is a HUGE Blackhawks fan so this only seemed fitting. Let me tell you the infant jersey's are so tiny but so ADORABLE!!!. We had several photos of her taken and now since she outgrew her jersey we had it mounted with a couple of photos. It is sooooo cute. My daugther and hubby love to watch the games. She now has a "Blackhawk" cheer so cute to watch a little 3 year old rooting for "her" team.
For this I used several different cartridges:
The squares sized at 5.25 x 7.25" and 5.5" x 7.5" - cut from George and basic shapes
The circle sized at 6"
The little hockey player is 5.5" and the gear was just layered accordingly from Everyday Paper Dolls
The hair was not the normal one for this person but it was also from Everyday Paper dolls.
The Stanley cup also cut from Everyday Paper Dolls at 6.5"
The letters are cut from Kate's ABC at 1.20 shaddow feature and then regular font feature.
I modified her hand from the side to across the front. (I did a little operation). I wanted her to hold the stick.
The stick was wrapped with brown/white twine (just like how they wrap the sticks in hockey).
All the paper is from SEI - "With all my heart" paper line. I didn't want just red and black and wanted to make it a little more girly so I chose this adorable little paper.
The cute little face is from Peachy Keen stamps
I stiched around the little uniform and Stanley cup. The 2010 on the Stanley cup is from when the Blackhawks took home the trophey.
I also will be entering this in the FABULOUS Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge which was to make something relating to sports. I was going to make a parenting layout - as that is a sport. (Teehee). You should visit Emma's wonderful blog and see her cool little sneak peak she is having - which means a new stamp set is coming soon.
Here is her website:
Happy Scrappin'
