Under the Sea.....

"Crustaceans".........This is the new challenge at 'Stuck on U Sketches Die cuts' - Crabs , Lobster, shells, star fish etc.
I have to tell you I had no idea what I was going to create .......what a challenge! Then I thought of 'Sebastian' from the Little Mermaid.
 I wish I was one of these people that had a clear picture in my head before I such luck, so I just started cutting and hoped for the best!
I decided to have some fun............. So here is my "Under the Sea" layout.

Jordyn and Tori having fun with their new Under water camera.

Adding a a few little details to your cuts brings them to life........a little Bling , glitter and chalk for the cheeks.

I used cricut cartridges 'Dreams come True' and 'Life's a Beach'
A few of the cuts have been raised with foam mounting tape for dimension.........its does not show up that well in the photo.

 The DT have been so creative with this challenge, stop by and have a peak!

Thankyou for coming by.....I always appreciate the lovely comments you leave me:))
Before I go
I'd also like to share this post from 'Stuck on U Sketches' Leaders

Design Team Call 2013

Hi crafty friends!
We are so excited to be announcing some new spots
opening up here at Stuck on U Sketches!
We are looking to grow our team which means even more
inspiration when you come by and visit!
Some of those changes mean missing some incredible designers
that will be leaving us. However we are excited for some
new talent to join us!

Will that be you?

We have a small opening with our Layout Sketch Team
and are looking for 2 new Design Teammembers.
You'll be creating with our original sketches every other Friday.

And with our Die Cut Team we are looking for 4 new 
Design Team members!
Again, you'll be creating every other Friday with a chosen
Die Cut Challenge. The great part about this is that you may
use ANY die cutting machine. Electronic, metal dies, etc.
You can take a peek around the site to get a better idea
on the challenges we do and if you have enough imagery
to join our challenges!

We are also looking for someone who would be interested
in being a Sponsor Coordinator.

Design Team Call will be open until May 3
and new teams will start in June!

Any questions? Please let us know!

We are asking for 6 month commitments to the teams.
You must be able to comment on all entires for your challenge.

We are very excited to also share a little tease and let you know
that we are planning some other changes for our site!
We hope this will be the inspiration and fun that will 
cause us all to really get excited about our awesome hobby!

We can't wait to share these changes and to see 
who wants to join this amazing team!
