Cricut E2 Challenge Layouts

I have been super busy and haven't had a chance to post my other two layouts that I made for the Cricut Expression 2 challenge.  I am not holding hope to win one, (but hubby said I could order one, so Idid!) but it was fun to create them. 

The machine is on HSN today and today only, and I have to say, I have seen some amazing projects that were sent in for the contest.  In fact, I am proud to say that I know one of the winners, Goddess Nadia at With Glittering Eyes created one of her masterpieces and deserves the E2 she won!  Congrats Nadia!

Ok Ok, on with it, my second Layout for the challenge was a Birthday Princess layout.  It is pretty simple, but it is pretty!

1.     Best Friends – Princess 5.8”
2.     Songbird – font 1” (welded with the Gypsy)
3.     Twinkle Toes – large shapes  11.15” and 12.32”

I am proud of the way they all turned out, and I don't know which is my favorite, which is yours?



  1. You are so funny! I ran over here from the Circle MB after you posted these so I could get a better look and then see that you have mentioned me. How sweet and generous are you!!

    Well, I digress. The reason I came here was to tell you how beautiful your LOs are. I have a thing for princesses too, so that one immediately made me smile!!! See you on the MB!
