Scrapbook Page of My Adorable Daughter!

Do you have scads of old photos in boxes or on your computer?  So many that you almost don't even know what you've got anymore?  And then when you start going through them it's like finding buried treasure!  That's an experience I had recently.  It started several months ago when my husband changed jobs and brought home all the photos he'd had up in his cubicle.  One was this photo of Emily which I'd totally forgotten about.  I didn't see it even then as it just stayed in the box with the rest of his stuff.  Then my resident snoop, aka Emily, went through the box and found this pic.  She then went and found it on the computer and brought it to my attention.  It was taken the summer after we moved to a new house in Wilmington in 2006, about 15 months before we moved to KS.  Emily was 4, and her cat Kali was half-grown.  

I used the Balloon Ride Workshop on the Go kit from CTMH.  I LOVE that vintage hot-air balloon paper, and the colors worked well with the pic.  All the papers, stamps and accessories (except the ribbon-PTI) are CTMH.  I used SU's Crumb Cake ink on the title because I didn't have the appropriate color in CTMH ink.  I used the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy and Artbooking cartridges for the Cricut shapes.

Here is a detail of the tag.

The little resin buttons and the rhinestone flourishes come in the kit!

All the stamps except for the doily came from the stamp set that's included with the kit.  The doily is Lovely and Sweet, one of the sets that comes with the Cricut Artbooking Collection.

The Workshop on the Go kit includes instructions for 2 two-page layouts.  I modified one page of one of the LO's.  I am SO pleased with how it came out!  You can order it at my CTMH website HERE.  And don't forget, in April if you sign up as a CTMH consultant, you get a FREE Cricut collection of your choice!

I printed out some other old pics from that same year (it was a really good year for pics!) and plan to work on some more LO's today--wish me luck!  To tell you the truth, I'm kind of rusty at scrapbooking and I'm sort of re-learning how to do it, so wish me luck!  Thanks for taking a look!

this is an awesome layout. I love the colors and the little bird tag tucked behind the photo. I have years of photos sitting in boxes, printed before digital cameras!
