Cricut 360 Challenge #6 Feeling HOT HOT HOT

CRICUT 360 CHALLENGE #6
This is an easy challenge for me as I live in the sunny state of Florida where its HOT HOT HOT all the time. We have had over 90 degree temps since first of April. We enjoy swimming, and have a pool out back but who doesn't LOVE water parks! We just recently took our family that was visiting to Wet & Wild and man was it fun. I may be old....er (48) but let me tell you I can do a water slide! I love the feeling of going down the slides it tickles my stomach and my family always laugh at me because instantly I am screaming!

I have to say I am really scared of heights but I still manage to haul my fat butt up the stairs to go down these raft rides. I love the ones that at least four of us can fit in because its so much fun to see the kids enjoying themselves (ok us old....er kids really seem to enjoy them too!) So I decided to do a 12 x 12 layout using the solutions cart H2O. Its quick and easy since there really isn't too much layering with these cartridges. I used my imagine so I could pick the colors and print all the layers quick and easy.

I have two picture square that are 3 x 4 and both papers for them was from a mat stack DCWV called mango frost.

I cut the lifeguard at 3" and used the RGB code 255-0-46 for the red
The girl was cut at 3" as well and the orange is 255-179-41
Both the lifeguard and girl flesh tones were RGB code 255-222-194

The slide was cut at 6" and the light blue is RGB code 135-206-250
Dark blue section is 0-191-255

Phrase was cut at 4.5" and I just used the stock orange color that came up on imagine

I have several blogs I have visited and printed off RGB codes for papertray ink papers, stampin up and disney colors as well as others. I will compile a list for you all of the blogs or maybe the link for pdf files once I wrangle them all up again so if you have an imagine it REALLY helps. I printed the sheets off, put them in sheet protector and then store close to my imagine so anytime I want to make something I can quickly find colors to use for them. I am LOVING my imagine! Get one....they are super cheap right now! I have seen them for under $140 on ebay brand new....what a steal! I didn't get mine that cheap and I'm sure there are tons of others who didn't but I never regret my purchase and I am learning so much with it.

This is such a great lo. It gave me ideas as to how to create a LO of the waterpark that I also went with my sister recently. I'm not a big fan of big slides since they are scary. Fabulous job.
