Scrapbook Friday!

Hello And Happy Friday!
It's Friday and that means it is SCRAPBOOK FRIDAY at My Cricut Craftroom. My assignment for today was to make a scrapbook page using the pastel colors of Yellow and green and one other color. My color choice....PINK! Pink is still my favorite color but interestingly YELLOW was my favorite color for years.
I decided to use Ribbons and Rosettes and Elegant Edges for the main Cricut images on my pages. I did a 2 page spread featuring a very Large Rosette on the right hand page and then framed that with circular shapes from Elegant Edges. I double matted my photo as well also using Elegant Edges and used foam squares (purchased from My Cricut Craftoom as well).
For the smaller rosettes on the left hand page, I used the same cut as the large rosette and made them on a much smaller scale. I topped each of them with layered pink and yellow buttons and threaded the buttons with Doodlebug Twine that I purchased from the Erica at shop.mycricutcraftroom.com.

The letters for my title were cut from Plantin Schoolbook and I used my Gyspy to weld the letters together. I decided I wanted to mat my title on something ....and found the perfect cut for that on the Art Philosophy cartridge! I had to alter the size to fit my lettering and had to be careful to not make it too large for where I wanted the words to sit on my page. I used a white gel pen to make cute little dots on each letter. They mimic the cute polka dots on the ribbon I used through the center of the page.


Who are those ADORABLE CHILDREN in the photos, you ask? Those cuties are my grand children - Cooper, Aubrey and Lainey! The picture was taken almost a year ago! But they are just as cute and have grown so much in the past year!

I had a lot of fun making this scrapbook layout and I do hope you like it too!

I love comments...and you don't have to fight with the pesky "word verification" to be able to leave a comment here! Would love to hear from you!

I LOVE your double page layout Teresa! And I am really impressed by your use of multiple carts. I tend to only use one at a time. I have the Ribbons and Rosettes cart but never used it once! This has given me inspiration! Mind if I scraplift this? You did a FAB job!!!

Huge Fan of Rosettes and these are STUNNING! Love the idea of using one large one as a backdrop to a picture. I may have to scraplift this idea!

Based on the number of people who want to "scraplift" your rosettes ideas I would say it is a winner. Of course, it helps to have such beautiful grandchildren!!!Congratulations and continued best wishes!
