Cricut Monthly Challenge - A year in review
This Month the theme for the Cricut challenge was to create a layout or a mini album focusing on the past year and reflect on what it has meant to me.
The past year was full of fun and adventure for my daughter. We did have a few ups/downs this past year but all in all it was allot of fun.
For my layout - I will admit - I HATE to journal - I normally just put a little blurb like the date of the photo and where it was. Well this year one of my scrap booking goals is to journal. As you can see in this photo I haven't done it yet. I do plan on doing it though.
This past year my daughter had allot of 1st. She saw a real show - Sesame Street Live. She ate her 1st OREO while taking her first international trip. (Yes I know it was only to Canada, but still outside of the US). She started Pre-school and was showing off her 1st backpack. She wore her pretty little dirndl and apron a friend bought her to the German Festival. She also was able to go and see and touch her 1st Real Monster truck. So what better way to focus on the previous year then to scrapbook it.
I cut the little pockets at 4.25" wide, and the tags at 2.9 from Tags/bags,boxes, and more.
The little banners were cut at .50/1.0" Party Pick Pennants
The letters cut at 1.2" from Kate's ABC
The paper is from SEI A Fair Day. I thought it would be perfect for this layout since there was tons of colors. The pockets are double sided paper.
I tried to keep this simple as there was allot of photos for this layout - and I wanted to really use the little journal boxes from Emma's Stamps. I think it turned out so cute. Now all I need to do is... Journal.
