CWC: Crops of Luv Blog Hop: Day 2

Welcome to the CookingWithCricut.com, Crops of Luv Blog Hop day 2. This month our designers chose to create layouts for the Crops of Luv Organization. If you came here from Larelyn's blog Handmade from My Heart then you are in the right place, if you would like  to start from the beginning, then just head over to Cooking with Cricut.

Crops of Luv works hand-in-hand with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses.  Our hop will focus on creating 12 x 12 Scrapbook double page LOs using these themes: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Summer Fun (e.g. swimming), Christmas (yes, they have Christmas every Thursday at "Give Kids the World"), or general Disney themes.

Crops of Luv has some specific guidelines for the layouts. They need to include a journaling block or tag and mats for 3  4 x 6 pictures on each page. They also do not want the photo mats permanently adhered to the page.  That way they can flip them whichever way they need to.

So now lets have a look at what I've cooked up for this hop...
I love Monsters Inc. I even named my son Sullivan James, and the big blue monster's name is James P. Sullivan. I hope one day to be able to get a picture of my Sully with the Monster Sulley :) I used the Best of Pixar cartridge to get my cuts of Sulley, Mike and Randall.
 I made them quite large (5" for Sulley) and I don't know if you would be able to go any smaller and have them look good. there is quite a lot of small details that probably wouldn't cut very good at a small size. I added googly eyes to Sulley because his eyes didn't cut out very good, but I think he looks better that way anyways.
We hope you will enjoy our creations! We would love for you to participate. You can make a two-page layout following the parameters outlined above and mail it directly to Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Since this blog hop is also a challenge, be sure to link your project to CWC/PCW.
If you would like more information about this organization, or would like to make a monetary or supply donation, please visit their web site, www.cropsofluv.com.

If you get lost along the way, please be sure to head back to CWC and start from there. Be sure to head over to CWC and leave a comment for a chance to win some blog candy and to link your own Crops of Luv creation. Now I'd love it if you hopped on over to see what Suzanne at Cricut Craftin Granny has cooked up. Thanks so much for being a part of our hop.
