So it's the first day of Spring (officially) and surprise surprise it's snowing. bleh. I've been participating in a challenge all weekend and this is set is part of that, the note card challenge. :0) Since it's snowing and dreary I decided to do a Summer themed set. Plus I got to use my Block Party Cartridge that I bought recently. :0)

Note Card Box - Excuse my poor Dude, I cut him a few times and he never seemed to line up right? The leaflets for the Lite Cartridges are horrible. Tiny tiny images and some of the images are not in the correct order for assembly. I think I went blind trying to piece some of them together. And as mentioned, my poor "Dad" just does not look right at all.

At an angle, the note card holder slides inside it, normally I'd add gromits and add ribbon to the end of the holder to easily slide out, but realized later that I had sold my crop-a-dile last yr and had no other tool that would do the job. oops?

Note card holder that slides into the box:

New Arrival

Finally! After a couple of years hiatus from scrapbooking, I finally completed a double page layout for Miss K's album. I love these photos taken by Fresh Sugar Photography! I can't believe my now 1.5 yr old was soo wee. Some days I really miss her being so tiny.

I used a ton of carts for this layout, (which I scraplifted from the talented Faith Abigail!) but it was well worth the effort. I even went and a bought a couple of things to be able to complete the layout (Tiny Texture and MS Fence Punch Edger).

For some reason my house is a bit crooked, but I think it adds a bit to the charm. :0)

Cricut Cartridges:
- Kate's ABCs (butterflies)
- Create a Critter (grass)
- Bloom (Flowers, Trees - love those trees!)
- Mickey Mouse & Friends (Clouds/Sun)
- New Arrival (Title, carriage)
- Sugar and Spice (Stork, House)

Embossing Folders - Tiny Texture (House), Tiny Bubbles (carriage)

And the tiny fence is a Martha Stewart Punch called "Fence".

All Papers are Stampin' Up - Chocolate Chip, Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Garden Green, Old Olive, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, So Safron, Only Orange. The Blue DSP is SU but I forget the name of the set it came from and the other two DSPs (butterflies and brown) I forget as well sorry!
