Marching Band layouts

We have changed our format a bit at BBTB2, going to an every other week post.  However, I am planning to continue posting most Mondays and will share some of my other projects, as I make lots of things that don't necessarily fit the challenge themes or don't include a cricut cut.

This week, I have three layouts, although they don't all include my cricut.   Son#2 is one of the drum majors conducting his high school marching band this season, so I know I will be taking lots of pics of their show this year at competitions and at the football games.  I found a fantastic paper pack called Band Geeks from Photo Play.  It is perfect for all my band layout needs!  These three are all ready for my pics.  Have a great week and enjoy the upcoming Labor Day weekend!

back to school

Happy Monday!  It's that back to school time and that's our challenge theme for the week at BBTB2! My high schoolers started last Wednesday and my college guy starts this week, although he's already moved back to the dorm last week, as he's going to be one of the RAs this year for the dorms.  I always take first day of school pictures (since kindergarten!), so I snapped a few Wednesday and made this layout for them using the Locker Talk cartridge for all my cricut cuts.  Hope you will join us for a project this week and you can link up over at BBTB2!

Totally a Tourist and You Are Here layouts

Happy Monday!  I am hosting over at BBTB2 this week and I selected a vacation/travel theme.  It's summertime and I figure at least some of you have some kind of trip going on at some point, and of course you will take some pictures.  Because if you don't instagram or facebook a trip pic or two....did you really go?  LOL, I'm kidding!!!!!  The real reason I take lots of pictures when I travel so I can look back and enjoy the memories.

I used the CTMH You Are Here cartridge for both these layouts-it is loaded with travel images for all kinds of trips. Highly recommend this cartridge!  Our design team over at BBTB2 has lots of great travel projects for you to see, so take a look and link up!
