Mother's Day layout and blog hop (for Exploring Cricut)

We are having a Mother's Day blog hop at Exploring Cricut today, so welcome!  I have the entire blog hop list at the bottom in case you get lost.  I made a layout for the pics I plan to take of me and my boys (hopefully while they are taking me out to lunch!  They usually make me breakfast in bed, but I draw the line at taking photos then!).  I used the Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge for all my cricut cuts-I think every mom deserves some chocolate, strawberries, and flowers!  The print papers and journal box are from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss collection.







Cricut:
Celebrate With a Flourish-all cuts
Paper/Stickers-Simple Stories Vintage Bliss collection prints, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink
foam tape

I have some blog candy for you- a 6x6 paper pad called Hip Hip Hooray by American Crafts!  It is super duper cute (you can see a bit of it in my other post today about the Mother's Day card)!  To be included in the random drawing for my blog candy, follow on bloglovin or Google Friend Connect and leave me a comment about a layout theme you would like to see in the future! (or just say hi :)

  4. Like the colors & tile look to this. As far as layouts I would like to see more Pirate theme of course since I'm a Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow fan.

  24. Beautiful layout but I have one question. Isn't it a waist of paper to triple frame if there's gonna be a picture covering the patterned paper?
