...Count Sheep! -- Paper Doll Dress Up, 12x12 Two-page Layout

 Well.  Here it is.  Done.  Finished.  Finally!  I've been playing with this layout for two days now!!  I sure don't know why cuz it looks EXACTLY like it did in my head before I started it!!  Boy, does it feel good to know that this is done...  Can you believe that every single cut on this two-page layout (okay, with the exception of the photo mats) is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up???  If you've been following along, then you may have noticed that I'm doing a collection of layouts (with a card or two thrown in) ALL from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge...  If you'd like to see the entire collection, please click here...  Hopefully, I will be posting TWO more double-page layouts later (on Thursday) from this cartridge (I hope, I hope, I hope...  I believe!!)...  Now, pull out YOUR Paper Doll Dress Up and start discovering all this cartridge has to offer!!
The clouds were cut at 2.5".  The moon is cut at 3" RDS (Real Dial Size) -- If you forget to turn your RDS on, it will only cut at about an inch or so...  The fence is cut at 2.5" (there are three lined up side-by-side with just enough overlap).  The grass is cut at .75" and there are four on each 12x12 page -- They kinda overlap a little...  The sheep, which are my absolute favorite (did you see my card HERE?), are cut at 4" which really makes them only a little over 2.5"...  Now, don't WINCE, but I had to cut the little legs off and reattach them in different locations to make them look like they were jumping over the fence...  Don't worry though, they all survived the surgery just fine and a few even made a career out of jumping!!
Now, I'm totally loving this moon with the face...  But I have no idea why it would be hidden on the page with the Vampiress...  Cuz it's not scary at all!!  It's soooo cute!!  Perfect for a sheep counting layout!!
Look how patient this last little sheep is...  He's just waiting his turn to jump over that fence!!  I think I'm gonna have to list sheep as my second favorite animal (giraffes will always be FIRST!!)!!
The sheep on the right page all have pop dots to give them dimension (and the illusion of jumping from behind the fence to in front of it)...
And then they can take a walk through the flowers (also HIDDEN in the cartridge -- Check out the pixy girl page) which were cut at 1/2"...
I think this layout has to be one of very favorites...  And if it needed to be for a boy, it would be simple to substitute some blue photo mats and blue flowers...  A quick change with a BIG difference!!

I hope you've enjoyed my Counting Sheep layout...  Please be sure to check back for more layouts using the very fun and very versatile Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge!!  I love to read your comments, so please feel free to leave one below with a link to your blog (if you have one) -- I love to visit my visitors!!  And remember to check back on FRIDAY when I post my very BIG news about my super-fantastic-wonderful-and-amazing giveaway for followers!!  Hope to see ya here again soon!!  Until next time, may your bedtime be sheep-counting-free!!  :)

This LO is soooo adorable! I love that cart! It drives me nuts when I get a vision of a LO that should roll right out but it won't materialize onto my paper! They are the ones that take forever but are usually worth the wait! Great Job! TFS!

You are so talented. You've inspired me to do more scrap booking and get the paperdolls dress up cart. I never use. I love all the texture you create just by drawing on the cut outs. I look forward to seeing some of your next projects. Thanks for sharing.
