Diggin' for Dinos **Imaginisce**

Hey scrappers! Today's post will be short and sweet. Here is a double page layout that I did using the Imaginisce Dino Roar line and my newly acquired Dinosaur Tracks cricut cartridge. I took these photos when we visited the Whitey museum in San Antonio, TX. They had a cool dinosaur exhibit there. This was one of the play areas with an "excavation" pit.

I made the diecut shape by using my Cricut Design Studio software. Basically I welded triangles to the outside edge of a square on the George and Basic shapes cartridge. So if you don't have this cartridge, any cartridge with a basic square and triangle will do just fine. I also had to rotate the triangles at 90 deg, 180 deg, and 270 deg. before welding so the point of the triangle would be sticking away from the square to have the point on the outside. 

Next, I just cut the shape in half down the middle and split it up on either page.

This is one of the fossil die cuts on the Dinosaur Tracks cartridge. I did outline the inner edge of the fossil shape just to make the dinosaur shape stand out a little more. I also put i-rock metallic pearl studs on the "brush".

So that is all for today. There will be more soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!
