I'm a Guest Designer Today!!

Happy Tuesday!

I am so excited because today I am a Guest Designer over at Cooking with Cricut
This is one of my favorite challenge sites not to mention the great projects and ideas they have each week.


For my Guest Designer spot, I have created this Diva Card using one of my favorite cartridges, Pack Your Bags. 
I think it is one of my favorites because the images are all about travel. I love to travel and travel a lot for work, so I use this cartridge often when scrapping.

I find many of the cuts can be modified slightly for other purposes other than travel or beach scenes. 
 

Example, my card today features this gal with a drink in her hand. She could be strolling in the sun sipping lemonade. But in my case, I gave her a stylish purse and now she's a shopping diva!!


Hopefully she's shopping for scrapbooking supplies.

 

Hope this inspires you to use this cartridge for things other than travel related ones.

Here's How I did it...
Card base is standard A2 size cut using Elegant edges
Pattern is October Afternoon, all other paper is from my scrap stash
Scallop mat cut at 4" x 5.25" from Elegant Edges
Girl/layers cut at 5" from Pack Your Bags
Purse cut at 1.25" from create A Critter
Sentiment from MPS Pinka-licious stamp set
Ribbon is Stampin' Up
Stickles, chalk and doodles with my gel pen.
