Layout and a scrappy weekend!


Just quickly I want to post a layout that I did from a cottage vacation in 2006.  Yes...  I'm very behind in my scrapbooking! 

The pictures are a little blurry, my hands must be shaking after all my gardening this week!  Anyhoo... Here are the layouts, hope you like them:

I used Cricut cartridges for these, such as: Cars, Life is a Beach, Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and Calligraphy Collection.  I think that was all of them.

I have to run, I'm getting ready for a scrapbooking retreat... I can't wait!!!!

Enjoy the long weekend (in Ontario!)

Splash Layout

Just quickly, I wanted to share a scrapbook layout that I scraplifted from the Everyday Cricut blog.  There wasn't anything about that layout that I didn't like, so I guessed at the sizes and improvised the colours.  Other than the paper, and some ribbon, I think it's pretty close.  I used the Life is a Beach Cricut cartridge for all these cuts, except the sun.  I used the sun from the Mickey and Friends cartridge.  I'm not sure what pictures to put on here, but I know that I'll find some great shots.

A closer look:

I put some glaze on the snorkle mask. 

I added some jewels to the treasure chest and used my glitter pen to make it sparkle. The white gel pen helped with the definition.

I had fun adding some googly eyes to the water creatures and more sparkle on the coral and seaweed.

That's it for tonight - have a good night!
