Peachy Keen Challenge 14

This week over at Peachy Keen they are having a color challenge:
I was so pumped up about these colors once I got out all the card stock and realized they were the color of my son's dinosaur bedding.  

My friend Julia recently made a project like this for her son's room using the whales from Create-a-Critter.  I loved it so much!  She inspired me to try it with the dinosaurs from the cartridge.  Here are the supplies:
It really came out so cute!!!
Create-a-Critter-Dino 1 cut at 3 in.
Dino 2 cut at 2.5 in.
Palm Tree 1.5 in.
Plantin Schoolbook for letters cut at 3 in.
Recollections card stock and Simply Chartreuse from Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper (Striped-4 in x 7.5 in and red-4 in x 5 in)
PKS Critter Faces-Medium
Mod Podge
Craft Wood found at Michaels(They are 4.5 in wide.  I had my husband cut them down to 8 in high and 5.5 in high on the smaller one).
White paint

I got so into this project that I immediately wanted to make a scrapbook page with it.

I used Birthday Bash for the title cut at 1.5 in. and welded it with my Gypsy.
Dino cut at 5 in. with tiny bubbles Cuttlebug folder on two of the layers
PKS Wide Eyed Kids Stamp
Tim Holtz Peeled Paint ink
