My Sunshine Two Page Layout!

I made this two page layout over the weekend. I am going to add some of hubby's photos. I love how it turned out.

I used Cindy Loo, Live Simply and April Showers cartridges. Finally starting to get the hang of the Cricut! I only got it at Christmas time! Just not enough hours in the day! :-)


Below is the bird house. I like the buttons along the top and the "Made for each other" charm!


These are the little bushes I added. The flowers are die cuts. Oh, and I got to use my I-ROCK! Love that thing!


The dragon fly I stamped and colored by hand. Again, used my I-ROCK!


The "Sunshine" was cut from April Showers. Notice the "i" has a heart on top! The "My" is stamped on canvas.


The bird is cut from Cindy Loo. I love the envelope with the tags! It's going to be hard to choose only 10!



I am adding my layout to the following challenges this week!

Diva's By Design
Simon Says Stamp

Oh, and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

I Love You Mom - Two Page Layout for Mother's Day!

The above picture is the wrapping for my Mom's two page layout for Mother's Day! She didn't want to open it because she said it was to pretty! I didn't have any wrapping paper and no time to run to the store! :-)







I bought my Mom a $30.00 gift card and didn't want to just throw it in a card. I thought the layout would be the perfect idea! I didn't add pictures because I thought my Mom could add her favorite pictures of us!

I used 4 cartridges to make this layout:

Alphalicious

Cindy Loo

Birthday Cakes

Pack Your Bags

I am going to enter this layout in the following challenges:
