My First Scrapbook Layout!



Hello peeps! (getting close to Easter, lol)  It is hard for me to admit but I have NEVER done a scrapbook layout!  Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge this week is to do a scrapbook layout and use any cricut lite cartridge.  This was truly a real challenge for me.  Not only because I had never done a layout but I only own 1 lite cartridge and it is Jolly Holidays!  Well it was daunting but I did my best.  I used 1 cricut cut for the banner and it was from Jolly Holidays woot woot!

Materials:
Cricut lite cartridge Jolly Holidays
Sentiment from Emma's Mom You Rock stamp set
Cardstock  Raspberry Fizz - PTI
Patterned Paper - KP Valentine - K&co.
McGill Punch
Irock
Jolees Hot Fix Crystals
Flower Embellishments - K&co.
Pink Sorbet Twine - The Twinery
Crop-a-dial Corner Chomper

Thank you for stopping by today!  I truly appreciate all of my followers!
Hugs, Cathryn

This is a GREAT first LO, Cathryn. Truly! I would be so embarrassed to show my first LO…too many colors and shapes going on…it really is tragic. I want to do it over, but my friends remind me to save it to show how far I've come :)
