Die Cuttin' Divas Guest Designer! A Jumbo Elephant Thank you!

I am so excited to be Guest Designing for Die Cuttin' Divas today! Yippee!

We have a new jumbo-sized Die Cuttin' Diva challenge this week and we sure hope you will share your card, layout, or altered project.
The Challenge...
Create a project using an elephant
  I personally love elephants, I have a huge collection of them that started when my Dad gave me a tiny stuffed elephant when I was very ill as a child. Since then I have collected and received many beautiful elephants, so I was so excited to be doing such a perfect challenge!
Background Information...
Elephant Appreciation Day was declared beginning in 1996 by WildHeart® Productions to celebrate the Elephant

When: September 22

Origin of Elephant Appreciation Day:  Mission Media Inc. created in 1996, largely because elephants are....large (and a whole lot of other great things). The founder, Wayne Hepburn, received a paperweight of elephants on parade from his daughter as a gift. He became fascinated by them. He amassed a huge collections of elephant books and paraphernalia. His fascination and love of elephants, led to the creation of this day so you and I can stop and enjoy this huge, lumbering beast.

Here is my project:

I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge for my jumbo elephant
Cuttlebug Die cut Tag
A jumbo thank you stamp from Studio G
Mini button
Shore from the Twinery
Liquid Pearls

This week's super sponsor is...
Sister company to Cricut Direct, Cutting Bugs will provide choice of Cricut or Cards Magazine, Sept. 2012 issue and a Megan Elizabeth Sparkle Light Set
Remember...You have one week to plan, create, and submit your project. The winner will be announced next Tuesday. Please remember to include which die-cut you used and a link back to our site.
We are looking forward to all those projects that you create this week.
