Cricut Challenge 24: Sentimentals and SHE'S DONE IT AGAIN!

Heheheheh...and what exactly has SHE (read: MOI!) done again?  Why.... she totally finished a scrapbook layout!  All in one evening.  All in less than 2 hours (give or take a few minutes).  Finished, fertig, terminée, terminado, klaar, समाप्त (that's Hindi). I will makes it a whole bunch easier if you use an 8x10 photo on a 12x12 page.  You see...there are 144 sq inches of space on a 12x12 layout.  An 8x10 photo which has 80 sq inches you are already halfway to completion of your layout.  That makes no sense I realize but for a minute it did seem a bit logical.  Seriously if you get a really great picture and you enlarge it...well, you already have the beginnings of a striking layout with not much work.
I love this photo of Taylor (NBG) and her mother.  

We were at the park and I had snapped a few pictures and I just loved the way this one turned out.  She's just all pink and cute, you know?
I did do something different on this layout.  The title (Darling) is actually cut with the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge into the brown cardstock...So the pink print paper is placed below it.  I used some foam tape to give it some dimension.  The pink paper is Paper Pizzazz, the green is Basic Grey and the brown cardstock is Bazzill.  I also used a ladybug stamp from a Making Memories Set and put some Bazzill bling on the wings.  Some Offray ribbon finished it off.  
And Donna...I know there is not much journaling...well, ok...there isn't any! BUT the photo speaks for itself. It will go in a scrapbook of many photos of Taylor and her mommy so this one will just have to do with no other journaling.  But if it bugs you, Donna, I can always write who the people are on the back!
And by the way...this layout was made with yet another Cricut cartidge I have that I had not posted a project on yet...SENTIMENTALS!

Maybe tomorrow SHE'LL DO IT AGAIN!!! AG is going to go to Mother's Morning Out 2 days a week beginning soon and we are going to the Open House tomorrow.  Photo opportunities abound!


  1. What a great photo! Perfect layout for this- love that little blinged up ladybug :)Amy

  2. Like the layout. I find that journaling is not necessary when the photo speaks for itself like yours. Taylor is looking more & more like her brother (I mean that in a good way lookwise). You did a wonderful job on the photo.

  3. very cute page, I never use the larger photos enough.

  4. Hi Susan,
    Great page, wonderful photo, just darling.


  5. Wonderful stuff, Susan! I love opening mail from Expression Avenue every day!

  6. Judie said it well, it's Darling! She's darling! But ... poor Donna :)
