A young lady from Sarnia, ON by the name of Amy found my blog, and remembered me ~ she's a friend of my son, Aidan. Amy runs a yahoo group called "Sarnia Scrapbooking" and I decided to join them so I can stay in the loop. Sarnia Scrapbooking had their first layout challenge recently, and this is my entry.
This is the first LO in a long time that I haven't used my Cricut on, but I did get a chance to try out a new toy; my Curvy Cutter. I had a tough time figuring it out at first, but then suddenly had a 'duh' moment where it became perfectly clear....whew! I stamped the word 'around' using the Little Pieces set from SU for the background, and an All Night Media alphabet that I got on clearance at Wal-Mart. The flourish at the bottom left is actually a stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it in white craft ink, then used clear embossing powder for a bit more oomph.
