November Sun Layout and Blog Candy!!

I've been on a mission lately to get some pages DONE in my scrapbooks.  I use this layout quite a bit when trying to get a lot of photos on one page.  These colors make me so happy!
[click to enlarge]
Ignore the black textured backdrop - that is just my treadmill track (gets more use as a backdrop than as a treadmill lately :).  The patterned paper is American Crafts from the Backyard collection.  I loved the tiny caterpillars in the top print, so I created my own to match.  I couldn't believe that in all of my die cut inventory I did not have a catrerpillar!!  I used a circle punch and the Cricut Storefront catridge (for the antenae which is on the bughead cut) to make the caterpillar.  Here is a closeup:
The sun is from Cricut Doodlecharms.  I used my new Peachy Keen face stamps on both the sun and the caterpillar and embossed them with American Crafts Zing embossing powder (my new addiction).  I won these stamps on the Peachy Keen Facebook page - thanks Peachy Keen!!
The pink title tab is the new Tim Holtz On The Edge die (love it!).  November is from the 2008 Quickutz Calendar set and Sun is Sizzix Groovy Girl font (which I covered with Diamond stickles).  Finally, the scallop trim is a Quickutz Border die.
I've had such a great crafty week, so I decided to add some......
BLOG CANDY
for all my Cricut-ing friends!!  How does a Mother's Day Seasonal Cricut Cartridge sound?  (1) Just sign up to become a "Follower" my blog, and (2) then leave a comment on this post with a way to get in touch with you and I'll draw one name in a few days.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Great layout! I like how you used several different cartridges on the layout. I tend to stick to just 1 cartridge per layout, but I wish I could vary it up like you did! Also, LOVE "Shop till you drop"! Awesome!
