Celebrate YOU layout made using the Picturesque cartridge

Hello, everyone!!

Today I have a layout I made using a kit that I bought several months back from Close To My Heart. I was cleaning and organizing my scrap room and found it. I immediately put it on my desk for use. Buying kits is not something I usually do because I like to design my own stuff. This one was just so pretty and I thought I could add some Cricut cuts to alter it.

I used both the Picturesque cartridge(which is my all time favorite) and the NEW Nate's ABC's cartridge for the title.

The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink.
I cut the bird at 2" and the branch out at 2 1/4".
'celebrate' is a sticker from Close To My Heart as is the circle sticker on the 'o'. I cut 'you' out at 1" using Nate's ABC's.

Thanks so much for dropping by today!! I also have a post up over at my personal blog today made using the new Disney Classic Cricut cartridge. Come check it out by clicking here ==> Courtney Lane Designs.

Have a terrific Thursday!



Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!
