FCCB Challenge Me Monday #20

Today's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut was to create a card or project using an animal on any Cricut cartridge. Well, my Little Pickle Princess finally got 2 teeth this past week, and I knew I just HAD to make this layout:
I took two pictures of her and her "2" new teeth, and as soon as I print them out I can just stick them right on top of the photo mats!
Paper Recipe:
Photo mats, wood grain, and journaling background- DCWV the Green Stack
All other papers-Stampin' Up

I wanted the title to have a "chipboard" effect so I cut each letter 3 times and layered them on top of each other. I used Storybook and cut each letter at 1 1/2". Then I used the "Shorty" feature and cut the "2" at 1 1/2" (3 times) also. Next, I ran the "2" through my Xyron (upside down) and then glittered it. I wanted the "2" to have a little more dimension so I also used 3D-dots to "pop" it up on top of the little white beaver teeth. The wood grain base was cut using the Slumber Party cartridge and the "circle charm key" at 4 1/4".
Can you see all the little "bite" marks? I used my Stampin' Up scallop punch to make the bite marks around the edges of my page.

I used the Create A Critter cartridge and cut the beaver out at 3 1/4". I cut the teeth out at 5 1/2" and then used ultra fine glitter to make them sparkle! Then I used 3D-dots to "pop" up this little cutie!
I used the Cherry Limeade cartridge and my lovely gypsy to make the sayings "Our Little Beaver," and "July 2010."
The ribbon is from one of my local scrapbook stores. I typed up my journaling on the computer and changed the font color to dark brown so that it would match my papers. Then I changed a few words here and there to red. I used my SU punch again to take a "bite" out of the corner, and then added a couple yellow blings!
I can't wait to print out my pictures and add them to this layout! It was super easy, and I think it turned out pretty darn cute!
 Do any of you have "Little Beavers" out there? Which teeth usually come in next?

I hope I've inspired you to scrap something special today! Happy crafting! ;)
