Companion to S'mores layout

I finished it yesterday - the companion to my S'mores LO! This was was a little more simple and dangit if it I didn't have a hard time lining up my blue border! I redid it several times and I LOVE my ATG but that tape STICKS - good and bad thing! I should have used glue, but live and learn! I used Stand and Salute for most of it, and Cupcake for the font! I did a close up of my fireworks and font to try and show off my beautiful glimmer mist and my stickles but it's a little tough to see!

Luke's 2nd Year - Post 2

I skipped around a little on this one, but here are some more pages from his book!

February layout - I used Boys Will Be Boys, Indie Art, Rock Princess, and Robotz for the numbers. I had SO much fun with this one!

Easter layout - using Nate's ABCs and Holiday Cakes.

A July layout of putting together his tricycle, using Nate's ABCs, Boys Will Be Boys, and Going Places.

Another July layout, including his first haircut. On this one I used 3 Birds On Parade, Pop Up Neighborhood, and Cricut Everyday for the scissors.

Stay tuned for more! Still working on them!

July Monthly Challenge - Let's Eat!

I am SO excited about this challenge! Not only did it get me to do another page for my scrapbook of my cute kiddos, but I finally got to use the super cute s'mores bird from 3 Birds on Parade!!! I have been looking forward to using that! This is just one half of a 2 page layout, but I'm still working on the other half. This was all I needed for this challenge though!
I was contemplating using various shades of blue to make the background look like a sunset until I came across this navy starred paper in my collection and scrapped the other idea! I got to use my wood grain embossing and some of my absolute favorite "toys" - glimmer mist on the fire and stickles on the fire and various other places. Enjoy!

Luke's 2nd Year - Post 1

It's very overdue, but I am finally working on my son's 2nd year scrapbook. I feel bad because I did his first year pretty much right away but that was before the Cricut. I was really proud of it but comparing that to my daughter's first year book - no comparison. I feel like he kinda got shafted! lol SO, I am putting a lot of work into his 2nd year book. I'm determined to try and finish it this summer and I got a lot done the first couple weeks I started working on it. I stopped to do a birthday scrapbook for my mom but am getting back into it now and about halfway through. I am doing quick posts of the pages to share. There are lots, so I will do it in parts over a couple weeks and as I finish up!
