Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge

Hello Again!!

I'm back with a 2-page layout!!  I made this layout for the Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #11.  The challenge is to create a project using the Forever Young cartridge! Well I don't own that cartridge so I chose to use the Slumber Party Lite cartridge!  I love this cartridge! The pajamas, teddy bear, and slippers were cut from that cart...And the "Sweetheart" title is from Once Upon a Princess.  I distressed all the elements of the page with Walnut Stain Distress Ink!  I made the little rosette flowers with the tutorial from Creations with Christina HERE!  I think this is my favorite layout to date!!  It took me 3 hours!! So I put alot of work and planning into it!!  I will eventually add some cute pics of my girls in their jammies and add journaling also...Enjoy and tell me what you think!!!

Country Life card

Hello Everyone!!

Well it's finally March!!  Spring is coming and I am sooo ready!!

I have had the Country Life cartridge for a while now and only used it once, so I figured I would pull it out and give it a whirl!!

The stamped sentiment is from My Pink Stamper...And for the embossing I used the Houndstooth cuttlebug folder!!  I did stamp the sentiment a little crooked but oh well, it's handmade right?
