Family Layout using Cricut

I used some of my favorite photos of Estella and Oren n this layout.  
My brother and my daughter have a very special relationship. There is no doubt in my mind that they love each other dearly.  In March of 2008, my little brother became the daddy to his own little girl when my niece Taylor was born.   I have to admit I was a little worried about Estella's feelings about "sharing" her favorite uncle with his new baby.  Thankfully, there was nothing to worry about.  Estella adores her cousin, and she and her uncle still have a very special bond, as you can see in these photos.

This layout was created with the DCWV  Garden Party stack.  The cardstock is Bazzill in Pinecone (my fave brown to use.  I should seriously buy it in bulk!)  The flowers were cut from more Garden Party patterned paper and Pinecone cardstock.  The gems in the centers are from Hero Arts.  The punched border of my hidden journaling was done with my Fiskars Effervescence Border Punch.  I love this punch, and it is still one of my favorites among my growing collection of punches.

Scrapping With Cricut

I made this layout in 2009, using my cricut to cut out all of the circles and scallops.  I used a DCWV pattern paper stack and Bazzill card stock.  The bling I used is from Doodlebug.  I love their bling!  The cricut cartridge I used was a solutions cartridge called Stamping.  It is still one of my favorites to use.

The journaling strips on this page read:
My name is

For the Record...

 I am trying to get all of my layouts scanned and in one place.  This is not an easy task, to say the least.  Thankfully, I have some tech savvy friends I can ask(whine to)for help when I need it.  Also, I am lucky that my LSS has a great large scale scanner for customer use, so I can get the entire layouts without bothering with the hassles of tying images together.
 I made this layout a few years ago.  It was from our first annual trip to the local pumpkin patch.  Estella was almost 3.  The photo was taken in October of 2008.  My ribbon was a $1 spool from Scrapper's Edge, and the paper was from a seasons pack of DCWV.  I love scrapbooking fall.  The colors are some of my favorites!

Here is another layout featuring my favorite subject to scrap-Miss Estella.  This photo was taken in March of 2008, so that would make Estella 2.  The photos were taken on a blustery day at Samoa Beach.  We took Estella to fly kites and we had a blast.  I love the pinkness in her cheeks in this photo.  I used my Cricut Expression with the Stamped mini cartridge to cut out all of the shapes and the word "imagine" on this layout.  My card stock is bazzill and the patterned papers are DCWV.  The fabulous bling id from doodlebug.

Thanks so much for taking a peek.  I will have more to post soon!
