JB# 34 Picnic Parade

Cricutters Anonymous Challenge #34 Picnic Inspiration

Cartrides: Doodlecharms, watermelon 3 1/4" Walk in my Garden, Caterpillar 1 1/4" Paper Dolls: Pie 3 1/4" Disney Princess: Apple 3 1/4" Pooh & Friends: 1 1/4" SU Paper: gable green, regal rose, rose red, black, basic gray, creamy caramel Stamp sets: Peechy Keen faces SU: Picnic Parade To make the ants I cut out the caterpillars at 1 1/2" then cut them to only have three segments. I then added some wiggle eyes! The watermelon are sad to be taken away by the ants.

The apple is just confused!

The pie seems to be in cahoots with ants.
I put the checkerboard for a border on the bottom, so it would like a picnic table cloth. I don't have pictures for this layout but you can bet that I will. :) I still just love these peachy keen faces, they just add to everything.

Just a little tip, to save paper on cards or LO. When you need a border cut out the middle. Then apply it behind the paper, voila! Then you can use the center to frame your pictures.


  1. LOVE IT!! I never think to use my Peachy keen stamps for other things! Thanks for the great idea! Thanks for joining us this week at Cricutters Anonymous!

  2. I love this idea with the faces. Very nice.

  3. All of the fun little details make this LO a delight.

  4. OMG! When I saw this challenge, I thought to myself, how could I make ants? Well, kudos to you for the great idea!!!! So cute, love the tablecloth and the faces on the food! I just couldn't bring my picnic idea to fruition but you did!! Great.


Thank you, your comments brighten my day!
