BBTB2: Cricut - Fishing - What a Catch!

Happy Leap Year Day!   Over at BBTB2, L.B, from Cool Beans by L.B. is hosting this week, and we are leaping for joy and creating projects and cards that have a person or animal leaping!   The first thing that came to mind was these pictures of the fish my husband caught on our last trip.  They look all curled up - but in fact they were squirming and trying to jump away.  He did have a few that got away, but not these guys.  And let me tell you, (even though I am not a big fish eater) that these were delicious on the BBQ that night! 

I used the Outdoor Man cartridge for the saying "What a Catch", the tackle box, and the bobble.  I used the Just Because Cards cartridge for the pole.   To the left of the picture I am going to journal in white gel pen.  I inked a lot of the pieces, including the rainbow trout, knife and tackle box.

Leap on over to Bitten By the Bug2 and link up your interpretation of a person or animal leaping!

  3. This is a great layout! Thanks for stopping by my blog with the trifold Easter card. I don't think I kept the measurements I used. I'm so sorry! I still have the card but can't locate it at the moment. I will look at get back to you with measurements of the images when I find it, if you think that will help. :) You can email me directly, if you like. It's on my blog. Thanks again for stopping by.
