Yea, my "Happy Kitchen" or Rise and Shine layout was the Chirp Spotlight this week.  You can see lots of pics by clicking Here or just scroll down to the next post.  See this weeks Chirp Here.

I've got another fun project featuring the Imagine Nursery Tails cartridge.  Something cute and fun that can be used on cards, layouts or whatever you like.  Will post soon. :)

Cricut Imagine - Rise and Shine

Click on pictures to enlarge
This layout was inspired by my ALL TIME FAVORITE commercial...EVER.  Do you know which one it is???

 Yep... the Pop Tarts commercial from about a year ago.  It is very special at my house because Brent and I LOVED it.  It made us smile and got us dancing.  He would always go sliding and dancing across the kitchen floor.  It is just the happiest commercial and we had so much fun dancing to it.

  I couldn't resist trying to recreate a similar "happy" kitchen... so when he is my age and I'm too old to dance ;)... he can look at it and remember the fun times we had dancing and laughing in the kitchen.    

Thanks to the Cricut Imagine it made making this super happy layout a snap.  The images on Kate's Kitchen were perfect!   
When doing the first page I forgot I needed room for photo mats as it is supposed to be a scrapbook page.  Guess that's what the 2nd page is for, LOL.     

I was grasping for a dancing boy when I found Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk on the My Community cartridge.  Lean him forward and he kind of looks like he's doing the moon walk.  Sometimes you just have to use your imagination.  However...I hope PC will think about putting more little boys on some of the cartridges.  Even a dancing boy or two. :) 

Due to trademarks I wasn't sure if I could actually call my tarts Pop Tarts so my recipe is for Toaster Tarts.  ;)
Cricut Cartridges:
Kate's Kitchen - appliances, kitchen extra's and pattern paper
