Cricut Challenge 31: A Day at the Gardens

I'm not much of a work in the yard person but I sure do enjoy walking through beautiful gardens.  The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are lovely....any time of the year.  In the fall there is always an exhibition of scarecrows that are made by local schools and vendors, etc. and they are such fun to see.
Here is a 2 page layout I did of a day at the gardens with some friends.  The title was cut with my Cricut Expression with the Mini Monograms cartridge and the papers and embellishments are all Close to My Heart.  I haven't used my Cricut in a while since I got my Cameo but it was fun using it and yes, I still love my Cricut, too!  Anyway, this also meets my personal challenge of using the cartridges I have for a project.

Left side:
The journaling was printed on clear acrylic and is secured with some cute little pins.
It looks crooked here because it slid a bit (I know....I should have repositioned it and taken another picture...but...) but it is fine once it is in my page protector.
Right side:
I added a few little flowers and some little flower brads as well as a bit of Glossy Accents on some of the cute little figures on the papers:

And here is a picture of how the layouts look side by side.

I loved this happy paper!
