Happy Birthday layout

 Happy Monday!   I hope you are all able to stay safe and cool in these dog days of summer!  It has been EXTREMELY hot and humid here in KC, with heat indexes of 105-110 every day.   My husband and I are working on finding our new empty nest groove, which has included spending some time floating in the pool!  I can report the kids are all doing well.  Probably better than us, lol!

The BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a birthday theme.  I had some family birthday pictures from June to scrap and this challenge prompted me to get them finished.  I find that many of our challenges nudge me to actually keep on track getting pages into my scrapbooks, which I love!  I cut some background overlays with the stars from the CTMH Artbooking collection, as I didn't have any birthday bg paper in the right colors to use.  Then I picked a gift and Happy Birthday from the many many choices on Cricut Access.  You can share any new birthday projects with a cricut cut included with us over at the BBTB2 site for the next two weeks.

Aquarium layout

 Happy Monday!  It's been a very emotional weekend for me....we moved my youngest to college and are now officially empty nesters.  After 23 years of having kids living at home (and ALL the kids plus extras living at home during the pandemic), it's quite a change!  

The challenge theme over at BBTB2 for the next two weeks is Under the Sea, and I found some pictures of a visit to the Aquarium in Chicago for the project.  I found the perfect background paper (which might be from Echo Park?) in my stash and found some great cuts on the Family Album image collection on Cricut Access.  I hope you'll be inspired by the design team projects over at BBTB2, where you can link up a project as well.

Hiking layout for The Great Outdoors challenge

Happy Monday!  I'm hosting the challenge for the next two weeks over at BBTB2 and the theme is The Great Outdoors.  My family is taking advantage of summer to spend lots of time outdoors hiking and swimming, including a trip to Yellowstone.  For my project, I made a scrapbook layout for photos taken on one of our hikes in Yellowstone.  The trail sign is my favorite of the hiking images I cut with my cricut.  Go check out the design team projects and share with us over at the BBTB2 site!
