My Creative Time :: Throwback Thursday Challenge!

Hi there again! Today over at My Creative Time, it's time for the Throwback Thursday Challenge! The theme for the challenge this month is color! Using the following picture, create any type of project you want using the colors in the pic and ANY older Cricut cartridge! 

Then head back on over to My Creative Time to link up your projects before June 20th. Easy peasy...we can't wait to see what you link up!
For my project today, I decided to use the Just Because Cricut cartridge. This super cute cut is on page 52. I actually had no idea what I wanted to do, until I saw this cut and thought that it went perfectly with this My Creative Time sentiment! Then...my Cricuts decided that they didn't want to play nice with me. So I spent all evening updating both my Expression and by E2. My E2 (even after updating) still only cuts one layer of the cut and then freezes. :( Not sure why and it's never done it before. So if anyone has any tips for me...I'm all ears! I wasn't able to get a hold of Provo Craft today, I'm hoping that I make it time tomorrow. 
The Seeing Spots embossing folder is one of my all time favorites!
Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Vintage Cream and Dark Chocolate
Stampin' Up Green Galore and Pool Party
Echo Park Happy Days 6x6 paper stack
My Creative Time What's Growing On?
Liz's Paper Loft Boutique hemp twine
Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge
Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder
Stampin' Up pearl

Don't forget to check out Emma's blog for more inspiration for your projects and then link up by June 20th!

Great card. Hopefully you'll get your machine straightened out...I can't stand it...it's always when you need to finish something that things go wacky. Lee-Ann :)

I LOVE that embossing folder too. I love the half green/ half blue too. It looks awesome. No fun on those machines of yours. Mine was behaving badly last night too, ugh. I LOVE this card! Hugs- Glora
