February Club Layout - Pets

Here is the layout that we will be working on for February. The papers that we are using are Caboodle and the main colors are Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf & Buttercup. We will also be using the Flip Flaps, ribbon and other embellishments. I have created my layouts based on our dog Ozzie, but if you don't have a pet or do not want to make a pet page, feel free to use any other theme.

Those Li'l Carts

This is a layout about my son pushing one of those small shopping carts in the grocery store and how it made me realize how fast he's growing up because he's getting too big for "Those li'l Carts" Camera phones really do come in handy!!!
Patterned Papers: Bo-Bunny Flutter Butter papers, CTMH Brads, Ink & Edge Distressor.
Title cut with Cricut/SCAL: Arial, Creampuff Fonts; Shopping Cart (My World cartridge). Journaling hidden under 4x6 photo.

16 & Rockin' It - You Rock Paper Pack

I just love the "You Rock" paper package. This is one that I'll use up on many different layouts. Here are a couple of pages of my oldest son's 16th Birthday.

Everything used on these pages are from CTMH except for thread used for stitching. The second page was inspired by the Sampler-Pieced Layout in the Reflections book pg 124.
