Cut It Up: Dr. Seuss style

I posted last week my excitement over being picked to design with the Cut It Up challenge site.  I have been a longtime fan of my Cuttlebug and all the dies that go with it, but last year after receiving my Cricut from 'Santa' I decided to really focus on incorporating more diecuts into my layouts.  I already use them on most of my cards because I am such a lousy stamper, but adding them to my layouts was just something I never tried.  The whole idea of these challenges is to follow their theme while including a diecut (any machine...manual or electronic). Perfect right?!?!?!  Well except I didn't even use my own machines for this first challenge.  HAHAHA....but there is next week.  ;)

The theme this week is Dr. Seuss inspired and rather than just being inspired by the themes in one of his books, I decided to go literal and use it as an excuse to scrap pics of my kids at Universal in their Thing 1 & Thing 2 shirts.  So I had a friend cut me some adorable blue haired diecuts with her Silhouette and voila....
