New challenge at Exploring Cricut

We have a fun new challenge this week at Exploring Cricut. You are to create a layout, card, or papercraft using at least 3 cricut cuts, 2 pattern papers, and one embellishment. It can be of any summer activity at all. I created a 2 page layout using some papers I received in my Scrapbook Generation kit and followed the sketch somewhat, but did a lot of my enhancements. I used the cartridges Sesame St. Font, Just Because Cards, Life's a Beach and Party Picks and Pennants digital. I really had fun with this layout. The papers are from Fancy Pants Designs. Below are the measurements of my cuts. Please play along with us this week too! I will also be entering this in the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge.
Pennants-cut at 1.5 inches from Party Picks and Pennants digital
Summer title cut at .125 inches from Sesame St. Font
Sun cut at 3.5 inches from Just Because Cards
Sand Bucket cut at 3 inches from Life's a Beach
Shells cut at 2.75 inches from Life's a Beach

Flowers from Bo Bunny and button brads in stash.
