Challenge #36~sketch~hip to be square

Morning everyone! Welcome to another Monday morning here at the Critter Challenge Blog!
We are half way through the month if you can believe that. It's almost time for kids are going as Buzz and Tinker Bell. It's amazing how much costumes cost...I couldn't find a good deal online to save my life. So I made sure I got them big so they could play with them at home too and get some extra use out of them!

We are still being sponsored by the fabulous MelJen's Designs. Make sure you check them out and join in their weekly challenges also.

On to our Challenge:

Challenge #36 SKETCH and HIP TO BE SQUARE

Here is your sketch by our wonderful DT memeber Heidi....isn't this an awesome sketch?

Now the "hip to be square" part of the  challenge:
All major elements should be square. You can use circles or other shapes as long as the major elements are square.

Now on to what the DT came up with:

Wow...what a great card. I'm loving all those squares.
MelJen's Image!

Wow....I just love thos square shapes in the cute!
MelJen's Image

I love that DP...and look how that sentiment hangs like a cute!

She never disappoints with a fabulous scrapbook layout!

What a great little Christmas card!

That's it for this week. I hope you all enjoy this weeks challenge and we can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a great week.
