2012 Olympics Mania! - FCCB#124

Happy Monday Crafters,

Did you have a great weekend?  I sure did.  I am vacationing at the lake.  We had a great "Sister's Reunion" yesterday with my mom's sisters.  It was great getting together and celebrating family.  I will be enjoying good books, nice swims and great atmosphere at the lake.  Hope you have a spectacular week planned.

How about those 2012 Olympics?  I was on the edge of my seat watching the Beach Volleyball this year.  And how about our Gymnastics darlings?  I was so proud of all of them.  Can't leave out the Swim Team either.  The infectious laugh of Missy Franklin was such a delight this year.  Our hometown (well, I am claiming Granbury even if it is more than 50 miles away) cutie, Dana Vollmer, was back for another Gold metal moment.

In keeping with the Olympics The Fantabulous Cricut is celebrating the 2012 Olympics and our very own 'Olympic Team'!  Our goal this week was to make a project with a sports theme.   So, get out your tools and make your very own 'Gold Metal' project.  Who knows you might strike 'Gold' (or maybe a super prize and recognition) as one of the FCCB Top Five!!!

Here is my Olympic offering:
Here is the recipe;
Card size:  A2 (4.25" x 5.5")
  • Orange mat cut to 4" x 5.25" and cut diagonally to make 2 triangles.
  • Blue mat cut to 4" x 5.25"
Croc:  CROCS RULE, Swim cut @ 3.5" + all layers.
Cardstock:  The Paper Company (White, Orange and Hunter Green)
Patterned Paper:  DCWV (Spring Fling and Summer Days Combo Stack)
Accents:  JoAnn's (Mini Star Brads in Citrus and Patriotic) DCWV (Spring Fling and Summer Days Combo Stack - sayings and stars fussy cut)
Color Medium:  Sukara (White Jelly Roll Pen)
Adhesives:  Scotch (ATG and foam tape) and EKSuccess (Zig 2 Way Glue Pen Fine Tip)

Now it is your turn to make an Olympic or sports themed project.  Remember, to check out all of my wonderful design team sister's blogs for their projects, and give them some Gold Metal Comment Love

Just a little doodle before the toodles and happy crafting,
