This layout was a lot of fun.  I used a lot of scrap papers that I had in my bag and found a layout that I liked at Out on a Limb Scrapbook.

The lighting of these photos is not the best.....sorry.  I used part of the title "I Heart U" and the elephants from Birthday Bash.  And I used Sure Cuts A Lot to cut out "TONS".  I also cut the flourishes from Art Philosophy.

I am crazy about the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  This is the most versitile Cricut cartridge I have.  It has everything on it.  The $99 price tag seems excessive, but this cartridge is worth every penny.

I made this beach layout using CTMH Footloose paper. I found the inspiration for my layout online and changed it just a little bit. The only problem is that I was unable to cut out my title for the layout because my gypsy (just updated) was not compatible with either of the 2 expressions at this retreat I am at this weekend so I will have to wait until I get home to cut out my title. It will say Life's a Beach on it.

UPDATE:  I was able to find a title for my layout and used Sure Cuts A Lot to modify the design to fit my layout.  The title had a sun on the left side of it and I didn't need a sun so after I put all the other layers on I cut off what I didn't need.  It's a little bit catty wampus, but I'm happy with the overall outcome.

I used Doodlecharms, for the Sun.  Create A Critter for the Palm Trees and Clouds and I used Life's a Beach for the pail and Sandcastle. .

I really love this paper.  I will definitely be ordering more of it.

The photo at the bottom of the post is the layout I used for inspiration.

I went to a scrapbook retreat recently and took my CTMH goodies. I used the Florentein pack along with a Scrapbook Generations layout to make the pages below.

We recently went to San Antonio, TX to visit my husbands brother, sister and nephew. We had an absolutely wonderful time. We stayed with my husbands nephew and his wife and it was like being at a spa.

We all went to dinner one night and had a waiter take photos for us which I have used in the layout below.

I used only CTMH papers and embellishments. I love the charm and the medals that came with the florentine paper. I also used Art Philosophy and a stamp to embellish the layout. I'm not a great stamper but I was pleased with the result of my first try. I'm very pleased with how it turned out and hope you are too.
