. I used 4 for my projects! My Community, All Sports, Nifty Fifties and Fast Food Lite cartridges. Take a look at my projects! I think they're fun!
First of all, a cute little Fall/Thanksgiving card. I love the turkey from My Community.






I cut it out several times to give my feathers various colors.  I should call this card, "Where's the turkey?" Or "Eat more Beef!" He look like he's hiding to avoid Thanksgiving dinner. He's on page 32 of the My Community Cartridge. I added a CTMH stamp, fall, layered it, and cut out this petal  4 times, stacked with foam dots, and inked to look like a sunflower. I was flipping through the Nifty Fifty book to decide what to do when I saw this embellishment, and it reminded me of a sunflower. So I decided to make it as well and pop onto my card because in my area, Sunflowers is a typical fall image. I layered it all on a fall leaf paper, added a ribbon bow, and some green bling in the corner. It's really very colorful and 3-d.
My next two projects are from All Sports. Which is funny because 1. I don't have any children currently in sports. and 2. I'm the least sportiest person you'd ever meet! My longest run is to get in front of a food buffet... LOL
Anyway-here's the 2 scrapbook pages I made for my favorite great neice (who loves to cheer) and her big brother ( who is playing football and baseball)

 
The megahorn, ra'ra'ra' and the cute little cheerleader is all from the cartridge. I layered it on a 12 x 12 scrapbook paper I picked up at Jeffrey Allen's. They are closing out the scrapbook area, which makes me sad, but I did get this and the next page on sale. :)

 
The football player and title is all from All Sports. I asked my niece what the colors were on his uniform. She said blue.. how many shades of blue have you seen in the paper display aisle? I know, right? So I picked a nice navy color... Both these will be ready for photos and my niece is a great photographer so I'm sure she'll take the pefect photo to complete these.
 
Next I used Fast Food Lite Cartridge. I must admit that I was thinking, "what was I thinking?" I just couldn't get any mojo for this cartridge... again, I know how weird is that? I eat all the time.. then I found this cute sweet's paper from Erica's Room I had gotten.. humm, yummy! So I cut out an Ice Cream cone and layered into the paper. Added a CTMH sentiment-Hope Your Birthday is as Sweet as you. I think I was thinking I always hate to see our local DQ close as the weather gets cooler.. but not to fear-we have two others that stay open all year round!  Here's my card!
 

Now dip that into the chocolate and I'm licking my lips! This will be perfect for my little cheerleader above as her birthday party is next Saturday.

  5. Janet - my favorite of all your projects (and they are all really wonderful!) is the ice cream cone! That was perfect on that paper - and I think I loved the story of you running to the front of the buffet line so it was fitting to have a "treat" project in this hop! LOL!
    That little turkey is hiding ...that sunflower turned out so cute and all the colors you used to create this pretty tail is perfect!

  8. Janet, You did a great job on all of your projects. I have to say that I love that turkey! The colors that you used are amazing, I didn't realize it was a turkey at 1st but I am seeing how many different ways this cut could be used, It would be great as a flower or even as a sun, Just cover up the turkey head lol.
    I am not a sports person either but your layouts are great. I am loving that cheerleader. Super cut.

    Your ice cream cone really does remind me of a dq cone. such a yummy project!

    Thanks for sharing them all!
