Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Anything Goes

Welcome to a Fantabulous Cricut Blog Crawl. A blog crawl is our version of a Blog hop. Hopefully you made it here from Joneita. This week our sponsor, blitsy, is giving away a bag of crafty goodness to one lucky participant...
 
We are also opening up a DT call so make sure to check out the details! Be sure to visit each of the Design Team members' blogs to see their projects. If you get lost along the way, you can go back to Fantabulous Cricut or look at the list below.

When you are done with the crawl, go back to the FCCB blog and link up your project. The challenge is Anything Goes! We want to see your Cricut projects. To qualify for the weekly prize from our fabulous sponsor, you need to make sure to have at least 1 Cricut cut.

NOW onto my fun Anything Goes project.
This week we fell under the 50 day mark for our upcoming Disney Trip so my project had to be all about Mickey. This is my daughter's autograph book for the trip.  I found this great blank book in my stash of all places and knew it would be the perfect size for those large gloved hands some of the characters have (TIP: if your autograph pages and pen are too small those characters can not hold them well.)
She really had to think about what she wanted the cover to look like. At first she was all about a Christmas Tree, but she saw me doodling some Mickey heads and we got to talking...
A few snow inspired papers later and she knew she wanted this simple but fun design.  I laid out the whole thing in Cricut Craft Room so the square and all the Mickey heads cut evenly.
All I had to do (HA it took a little while) was place the papers behind the stencil piece and attach it to the cover.A little Mod Podge and it was ready. I added in inside cover page using the paper she had selected as her favorite.
Her response, "Best autograph book ever!!"
Thanks so much for joining us this week - I hope you will finish up this great crawl and take part in the fun challenge as well.  Your next stop on the crawl is Amy T!
