Momma & Leah Day- Special Layout

Today is MOMMA & LEAH DAY. We started out the day by making pancakes and are heading out to see Ramona & Beezus this afternoon. I made this layout so that we can remember our special alone times together. The photos were taken on one of our outings to the mall. We just had to stop by the photo booth! The look on her face in the bottom picture just melts my heart. I love it!

The heart is from Don Juan and the journaling block is from the new Lacey Labels Cricut Lite cartridge. The paper is a new DCWV All about Girls matstack. The layout is 8x8.

The chocolate chip pancakes that Leah made for breakfast this morning... YUMMY!

Cuts from the Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite cartridge

I thought I might make a few cuts from the Sugar & Spice Cricut Lite cartridge to show you all what they look like. I have went ahead and labeled all of what I have cut out for you. I am hoping to cut out more later this week to show you what else is on this wonderful cartridge. I think that EVERY image on this one is absolutely adorable! Enjoy!
(If you want to see larger images- just click on the picture)

I will be posting my Cricut Mini Albums Designs Team project a little later this week. I am very excited to share it with you. I LOVE how it turned out and cannot wait to give to my 10 yo! The theme for this assignment was SUMMER. So come on over and see what everybody has come up with this week. The link for the Design Team is on my side bar.
