My Cricut Craftroom Design team post


Welcome to Scrapbook Friday with My Cricut Craft Room.  Today's theme is "kids". 

 This past summer I took a trip with my kids and grandkids to visit my mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece's family in the "it's not that hot in the shade" Arizona.  I laugh at that statement because there isn't any shade in Arizona, at least not in Golden Valley, which by the way is golden BROWN!  LOL.  We did have lots of fun though, early in the morning and in the evening.  On one of the days we took a day trip to Las Vegas NV.  We were only an hour away and my 11 year old grandson just had to go --  so he could brag to his friends no doubt :-)  Well we braved the heat and sun and went.

One of the stops we made was at the M&M factory.  The grandkids had a ball, I was actually glad we braved the heat and took them.  So today I want to show you the fun they had.


Pretty simple layout for me but that's because I really wanted to use all these photos on only one page.  I simply cut 1 1/2" strips of paper and then cut mats on opposite colors - all M&M colors of course!.  I cut my letters from the Plantin School book cartridge because they were closest to the actual lettering.  I cut them twice, one in white and one in brown (yummy center) at 3.15" using my Gypsy. I used punches from Creative Memories in 1", 1 1/4" & 1 1/2" to sorta look like M&Ms and journal on them.

I used the Sew Stamper and burst pad, that I purchased from Erica's store, to trim the paper layers.  A quick and easy layout to remember one day of our trip!.

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin!

Great LO and trip. Now I think I may take my husband to Hershey Park this summer for is birthday so that I can have a reason to do a Chocolate LO. We are only about 45 minute to an hour away.
