Cricut 360 Challenge No. 6

Hello!!  We are thrilled with the response to the New Cricut 360 Challenge Blog and I would like to thank all of you for joining us each week.  

Wow, this Summer has been the hottest I can recall here in Texas!!! We have been experiencing temperatures over 100 F for 34 consecutive days and counting.  Today was 108 F but with the heat index you could feel it as if it was above 110 F. 

With this heat wave in mind, this week's challenge is to create a Refreshing card or layout using any of the Cricut machines and any cartridge.  More details about this week's challenge and the amazing prize can be found HERE.

My take for this week's challenge at Cricut 360 was to create a layout with one of my favorite pictures taken during our 2009 vacations at La Riviera Maya in Mexico.    We went to the Xcaret water park and this photo was taking while we were in one of the two subterranean rivers there.  It was an amazing 10 days vacation and even though it was hot as hell, we spent most of the time in the water, and wasn't that bad.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you like my layout.
