Cricut Circle Blog Challenge
To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have created this layout all about me if it wasn’t for the current challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog. The challenge is to Celebrate the Strength of Girls. We were to use Pink, Ruffles, Scallops, Flourishes, Glitter and Jewels. This layout is all about how I like to spend my “Girl Time” in a household full of men.
I enjoy creating cards, scrapbook layouts, cross-stitch and some home décor items in my small craft room in the basement. I also am an avid reader and enjoy a variety of books from the basic whodunit to romance. I especially love it when the heroine in the book is a quirky woman who solves the crime. I love to share my creative projects on my blog as well as read other crafting blogs. The picture of me on this layout is the one I use for my crafting blog. I also included the Cricut Circle logo with the black bow since that is the avatar I use on the Cricut message boards. I have my journaling for this layout hidden behind the top pictures. It slides out by pulling on the scallop cut with the Martha Stewart border punch along the right side of the page.
