My First Christmas!

This weeks assignment over at "The Cutting Café" was a Christmas in July theme and I chose to use this great cutting file:

Although the file was for a greeting card it had great possibilities to use in a scrapbook layout.  I just started scrapbooking at Christmas time 2011 so I have so many untold stories and photos that I will never be caught up!  Although I always keep current with the year I am in.  It is fun to go back in time and look at the old photos and the memories they evoke.

I used a clear transparency for the snow globe overlay cut and put my photo behind it with some confetti so it give a fairly realistic look of a snow

Hope you enjoy and have a great week!

The Nail Salon is not just for Girls!

This weeks assignment over at the Cutting Café was to use one of the adorable nail polish cutting files.  One was a great file to make a wonderful giftable box to hold a nail polish and the other was the cutest invitation for a spa party! 

I love using these wonderful files for layouts and I was trying to think how I could use the file when I remembered I had this cute photo of my Grandson sitting in a child pedicure chair this spring.  So, hence the layout began using the invite file:

I kept the layout simple and used one photo with some journaling. 

Stop on over and take a look at all the wonderful files Regina offers!  All of the files are an incredible value!

Have a great week!
