Now Known As Gopher Mountain

This layout is based on a sketch from one of my Sketches for Scrapbooking books. It originally was a two page sketch that I manipulated into a one page layout. Two page sketches, if you look at it, can actually be used as a single page design as well. You can play with the scale a bit and fit both pages on one page or you can do what I did and pick one page of a two page layout to use as a single page layout.

Mixed lettering is a great trend that allows you to use up more of your left over letter stickers and gives a great graphic look to the title. I also used some white stitching rub-ons underneath the title which I think ties it all together perfectly!

And isn't that Chipmunk from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge the absolute cutest!  I was so excited that I finally got to use this cartridge.  I've had it for a little while but hadn't found a layout I wanted to use it on until this one.  I might have to find more layouts to do with little critters so I can play more!

Love it! I rarely use different fonts in my titles but I love the look so I really need to do it more often. And isn't Create a Critter a fabulous cartridge? It's my favourite!

That "gopher" is adorable! I so want this cartridge now :) The stitching is perfect, it looks like mountains behind the title!
