Summertime is the perfect time to visit your local theme park! As a girl, I remember that one of my favorite things about going with my family each year was getting the opportunity to try all of the fun treats and food! I particularly had my eye on the cotton candy. It was such a treat to carry around my very own and I didn’t even mind the sticky mess it created on my face and fingers. I’m sure my parents didn’t feel the same way, but I had a blast diving my face into that soft pink fluff.
Along with the darling western images contained on the County Fair cartridge, there are several fun images of carnival food . . . perfect for scrapping those theme park photos or creating a fun invitation to a carnival-themed party. Below is a page I created using the soft drink, corn dog, and cotton candy images.
The scalloped circle shape is from the Lacy Labels Lite cartridge. I added a circle on top cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I wanted my cuts to have a little texture, so I added some fun embossing with my Cuttlebug machine. The background circle is embossed with the Number Collage embossing folder, and the cotton candy is embossed with the ever-classic Swiss Dots embossing folder.
One of my very favorite Cricut fonts is included on the Nate’s ABC’s cartridge. It’s a great basic font that works for all kinds of projects. Here I cut each letter out from a different color paper/cardstock to match the colorful ticket border.
