I am very very new to scrapbooking and to the Cricut. I've only made 1 card and 1 layout.....EVER and it was for this challenge. The card Below was made using the cuttlebug for the backgroud which really set the card off. I am very please with it overall.

There were lots of mermaids and an overall water theme at the circus and even though I didn't get any pictures of the mermaids in their costumes, I thought the paper was appropriate.

I went to www.pagemaps.com to find a layout that I liked and although my layout does not look exactly like the pagemap, I am happy with the outcome. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the journaling frame and for the word circus.

I know I still have a lot to learn but you have to start somewhere, right?

I've posted 2 photos of the layout..the first one is a little bit of a side view of the layout because the straight on shot had a lot of glare from the glitter on the paper!
