Life's a beach

My layout for the Cricut swap the Melanie is hosting. This layout is perfect for photos from a day at the beach. I used my SU shell wheel for the sand and cut the various shapes from the Life's a beach cartridge.

Down on the Farm

This is another layout that I designed for swap that Melanie is hosting. This is my day at the farm layout. I used the My world cartridge to cut the barn and tractor out, paper dolls for the fence and hay/grass. I made the door of the barn open up and inside it says" A day in the COUNTRY is worth a month in town". . I think I will add some white clouds, it looks like it is missing something. I am also attaching some ribbon and brads for each person receiving this swap. The brads have are cute little farm animals. I love to visit farms in the fall, we are looking forward to apple picking and going to the pumpkin farms this year. Hope you like my layout.

THe Best Day Ever Spongebob Layout

This is another Cricut Layout for a swap Melanie hosted. I actually had 4 different spots. Can you believe that coffee got spilled all over all 3 of the 4 sets. The Spongebob was the only one that was not effected as it was bagged already. I would have been really angry if that layout was ruined because that little sponge is time consuming to put together. I really love the 12X12 glitter paper I found on clearance at Target. It is really a nice background for this layout. It is the best day ever for me as my cricut swaps are all on the way to Melanie (coffee free)!!

Cricut Layout

I created this layout for a Cricut swap I am in that mnewby is hosting. This is my 4th of July Layout using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge to create the stars and letters. The design and layout was a complete case, I liked it so much.
