Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 254 - Anything Goes

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday

Challenge #254 Anything Goes

This Weeks Sponsor

 Winner will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Verve Stamps
For my Anything Goes project I created a
coordinating scrapbook layout and card for my
Mom's 72nd birthday...and yes the photo is of my mom
when she was only 20 months old.

This is the first time I created a layout, or anything for that matter, vintage and/or shabby was way out of my comfort zone. I felt that this type of layout is what the picture needed so I had to try it...I think I did ok.
Here I created a little hidden journaling tag.

Once the layout was finished I knew I wanted to create a coordinating card.
Thankfully I had enough paper in the DCWV The French Country Stack to do so.

I used these items to create my Once Upon a Time coordinating scrapbook layout and card:
  • DCWV The French Country Stack - paper
  • Storybook Cricut cartridge - Once Upon a Time on layout
  • Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge - hidden tag on layout
  • Ultimate Creative Series Sampler Cricut cartridge - butterfly, bird and cage
  • misc. paper flowers
  • Lace doily - from my stash
  • ribbon - from my stash
  • misc, chipboard - Sweet on layout 
  • My Craft Spot (sorry closed) - Inside & Out - Set #2 clear stamps - Happy Birthday on card
  • My Craft Spot (sorry closed) - Jar Full of Flowers clear stamps - butterfly stamp on card
  • White Enamel Accents - on card
I am entering my Once Upon a Time coordinating scrapbook layout and card in the following challenges:
