Child's Year Card

Happy Tuesday,

I hope you are all having a great week so far....

I took a few last night to play with A Child's Year Cricut cartridge. I think the new cartridges coming out in March has gotten me going again. Preserves looks like it will be the first one in my shopping cart. and Give a hoot looks good too and....
Oh wait I was talking about A Child's Year... I've been having a hard time deciding what to create with this cartridge. I love the images, but just don't know what to do with them....Here is one I came up with last night. As I'm typing this I'm thinking these images would look great on the wooden frames from Michael's. Maybe a project for tonight? 


Supplies: Sweet Blush Paper Trey Ink Cardstock and Satin Ribbon, My Minds Eye pattern paper, Bazzill brown and off white cardstock, White Pearls from Queen and Company. 

I've received some blog awards over the past few days. I just wanted to thank you all so much. How sweet you all are. I have to go back and read all the comments over the past week and make a list of the awards so I can post them all at once. I'll be working on that over the next few days.

Hugs to all of you. You are all so very very kind and sweet.

  14. I love the card..it's great and nostalgic, too! I actually bought this cartridge around Christmastime to do a scrapbook for my MIL. The pics I chose were those of my husband when he was little and of my boys when they were little. I thought the silohettes were a perfect reminder of the innocense of childhood. I've also used the images on a couple of scrapbook pages of my own. I agree, it takes a little imagination, but the images do help tell a story!
