Prima's Jack and Jill Line

This was a layout that I did at the last crop I went to using Prima's new Jack and Jill line. This line is really sooo cute and really could be used for baby or for any layout that you wanted to do of someone you love.
This first page I used the cricut to cut the letters and did a shadow behind them in black to make them stand out because after I selected the paper and cut my letters I realized everything just blended in too much. This is really time consuming and 1/2 way thru I wished I'd picked a shorter quote haha but I was committed at that point. You can't really see it but I cut some off shaped circles out of the cricut as well again I must have been tired because I really selected papers that blended a little too much. In the bottom I journaled on one of the note cards from the jack and Jill line, these area all really super cute and really not that pricey for what you get and they can be used on cards or as frame for a picture or a journal spot like I choose. I cut a strip from one of their patterned papers to use as a border across the page.
And yes I have long hair here (um remember Elias is 17 now lol) this pic was taken when he was 6weeks old, I was at my parents for the first time as I was maid of honor in my cousin's wedding.

Here is the second page to the layout. I used the left over circle I had on the inside and the butterfly paper is the negative of the paper that I cut the circles out of. I cut several strips at different lengths of their border paper sheet and lined them up across the sheet. I faux stitched around the circle to try to make it stand out more and break it up a bit. I did in the first page too but for some reason forgot to take a close up of it.

Here you can see the little doggies on the border, they are so darn cute! If only they were pugs : ). This is Elias the same weekend at my parents on my old bed sleeping (he was born in June so it was July and really hot, you can see that full head of hair is a lil sweaty hee hee. A little side story, that afghan that is in the picture to the left the pink blue and white. Was made by my Grandma Cornish for me before I was born. Well she really wasn't my grandma but she was our neighbor across the street forever and we called her grandma. A super sweet old lady and I just adored this blanket it had little bows of each color tied in each square just a sweet memory for me as I really adored her and slept with this blanket every night. When I got older I would go over and just "hang" out with her and talk and watch tv, sometimes we'd play cards or do one of those huge puzzles. She always let me have soda and popcorn no matter how close it was to dinner (shhhh don't tell my mom!). I would stop and get her mail everyday after I got home from school and chit chat with her for a bit before I headed back home. I still have that blanket it's in my hope chest : )

The piece of paper with the flowers on it, I used one of the Bo Bunny journal book sheets and traced it on this paper then cut it out then faux stitched around it.

Here you can see all the borders that I layered.
Well I'm off to my scrapbooking weekend, got everything packed and ready got Karen's surprise goodie bag with scrapbook challenges inside all ready to go (I always make her a goodie bag of some things to use and have when we go to a crop) my idea kinda stems from when I was in cross country. We would draw names and everyone would have someone that they had to make a "get psyched" bag and we would put all sorts of goodies and little trinkets in it every weekend when we had an away meet. So I do the same kinda thing with scrapbooking goodies and snacks and a list of scrapbook challenges for the weekend kinda just gets you thinking outside of the box and also just fun : ). So off to pack the car and gas up the pug mobile before we head out this afternoon. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
