I did a layout!

. . . and it's NOT for a kit! I know, shocking, huh? This is my youngest dd, Crystal, in her graduation pics from K-5 and highschool side by side. She's such a sweetie! I love the K-5 pic so I used it in 3 sizes. After all, she's 19 now. I'm obviously not mailing them out to relatives at this point! lol As always, pictures are clickable for a better view!

I used A Child's Year Cricut cartridge to make the scalloped oval. It had a diploma in the center but I cut it out to put her name in. The scrollie things in the corner are from the Home Decor Solutions cartridge. The font is Plantin Schoolbook. I used the tag curler for the little "congrats" tag on the ribbon.

The next one is a layout I did about a year ago. (Yeah, the picture is older than that!) But I still love it. So decided to post it here. It's of  my granddaughter, Jolie Grace, when she was 3 months old. I've blogged about her birth before. She truly is a precious little gift to our family! That's her mom's hand and her dress in this picture is a newborn size. She was a little bitty thing! 

I used paper glaze on the letters, around the picture, and on the edges of the tag to give them shine. I sewed the layers together. Each layer has a different stitch pattern. Then I used chipboard flowers and glitter, Jolee's mini flowers, and some Michaels flowers and butterflies. The tag has a rub-on but I don't remember where it's from. The papers are mostly Martha Stewart, a K&Co., and can't remember what else.
