Oh, I think you might just like this one!  This is a stinkin' cute layout by our fabulous new designer, Becca Rees.  I'm tellin' ya - she's got some talent goin' on!  See below for all the details so you can make it yourself.  And don't forget to leave some love for Becca by leaving a comment - and it will also enter you for this week's blog candy - the brand new "It's My Party" paper pack by Basic Gray!  Bring it!  And be sure to check back tomorrow for a special Guest Designer.  And just to tease you some more because I'm a big meanie, I am going to do a review of the newest issue of Cricut Magazine and will have a few copies to give away too, so check in for that either Saturday or Monday.  Lots of good stuff goin' on!


Becca says she was inspired to make this layout by her daughter's favorite colors and love for girlie stuff.  She used the Paisley Cartridge, My Mind's Eye Paper - Quite Contrary Line, and Bo Bunny Cardstock.

Have fun scraplifting!!  Btw, are there any certain themes of layouts you'd love to see?  I'd love to design another layout just for fun that you can scraplift, and I always enjoy hearing about what you'd really like to see more of here.  Thanks!

Love it, I'm glad u used Paisley because I was at a loss on what to do with that one. I would love to see more boys layouts. I'm loving Nate's ABC's, so more with that would be good. And also one with Kates ABC's would be nice. Thanks for the instructions. That's nice to have!

Hey Monique, remind everyone of how AMAZINGLY darling Fabulous and Fiesty is! I noticed a lot of people didn't realize how much they could use their Paisley cart. Maybe Fabulous and Fiesty deserves another "showing" on the main page????

Crafty hugs,

I didn't think I needed the Paisley cart. I have changed my mind. Could you do some layouts for the pre-teen, early teen boys. There is always plenty of ideas for the little guys & the big guys but not so many for the in-be-tweeners. Thanks.

Joyce said...

I just love this layout. Awesome job!!!

Saw this last night at the Just Because Cards class and totally fell in love. So cute and so girly. My grandaughter is a real pink girl can't wait to scrap lift this and add her pictures! Thanks Gwen

Northwoodszoo said...

Very cute work! Thanks for asking for anything else we'd like to see -- most of the cards and layouts are very happy and make me smile. Alternatively I'm wondering if you've thought about showing us some tasteful sympathy card layout possibilities. I think a handmade card to go with heartfelt sentiments would be touching and special...

Donna said...

Becca, You are an A+ designer! Holy Moly, this is one really stinkin' cute layout! When I first looked at it and said out loud, "wow, this is really, REALLY cute!" he came over to my computer to look and agreed! He doesn't comment too much on scrapping stuff others make very often (he's a really good husband!)

This is really, really cute!

Have a blessed weekend, ladies!

DebC said...

Goodness if I could be half as good as you I would be on cloud nine. These layouts are sure beautiful. I have this paisly cart and now I must use it. You inspire me....both with what you are going through and how you look at life. Keep up the fight and keep up the great work you do!
