BBTB2: Cricut and Oxide Ink - Angelic Baby Boy

It's Anything Goes week at Bitten by the Bug2.  Link up your project or card HERE:   We expect to have lots of entries, there might even be a prize involved.

I made this layout a few months ago and really spent a lot of time on it.  It is a little outside of my wheelhouse, so I was pretty unsure of how it would turn out. I like playing with the Ranger Oxide Inks and this is the biggest piece I have made.  I took this picture of my grandson napping and the light coming in was just right - it's a little dark, but then the room was dark!   I took the layout from one of the blogs I follow on FB and changed it up a bit.  The original is below for reference.

Update:  original by Rene Stockwell.

Here are the cartridges I used for this sweet angelic layout:
Teddy Bear:  Christmas
Shoes:  Quiet Book
Sippy Cup:  Baby Steps

This is the sample layout that I used.  If I find the creator, I'll put a reference here.

BBTB2: Cricut - The Farmer Collects His Harvest

For at least 10 years my son has had a plot at the community garden in town.  Every year he improves on his crop, this year producing several heritage and specialized varieties of tomatoes, watermelon, peppers, and squash.  I went with him a few weeks ago to pick tomatoes for canning.   He also works on a farm seasonally, during planting and harvest season.  I call him my farmer.

Which leads us to our Bitten by the Bug2 challenge for the next two weeks, which is Labor Day.  I did a career layout for my daughter earlier this year and so chose my son for this occasion.  Our challenge is pretty broad in scope, you can link up your card or project HERE and see what out designers have created.

Cartridges Used:

Paddington Regular Font
Watermelon:  Simply Charmed
Truck:  Heritage
Veggies: Country Life
Pumpkin: Happily Ever After
Sign on Truck: Freshly Picked
Miscellaneous die cut, punched leaves and sparkles
