Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing a layout I started and yes this time it ended with pictures. If you all know me and have been following me for a while you'd know that I do not put pictures on my layouts. I make them for fun. I have about 150 double page layouts and no pictures. Go figure. I know what you must all be thinking, WHY? Well, to be honest with you, I can't seem to find the pictures for the layouts. I feel my layouts are a work of art and a picture will take away from it. But with that said, I do have many albums with pages and pictures. I have several of my girls, of my dog, of my husband, my husband and I, my family etc.

I have been busy creating layouts to take on my cruise to work on. I have been buying cricut cartridges this week. I bought one that I really wanted called BEEP BEEP. It is a boy cartridge, but for some reason even though I do not have any boys, my eye seems to always go towards boy layouts. I can't seem to stop creating them.

Here is the cartridge:

 And then here is the layout, pictures and all.
 These pictures are from when we were doing the addition to our home and the drive way. The tiny dump trucks on the pictures are tiny buttons I bought at a garage sale for 25cents.

I hope you all have a great day. We are having some really bad, nasty weather. Lots of rain, humidity and extremely muggy.



Those are so cute! You found a great way to use the "boy" die cuts.


very cute!! i like that you added the photo's to the layout for us to see!!

you really do put a lot of love in to your layouts!!


These are so cute, so glad you found the cart. you wanted. My fav is the yellow dump truck, I love how the wheels look so realy. Have fun die cutting.


Ana Dear I completely understand your methodology and need to create. These pages are super cute and really fit the photos. Maybe someday you will have grandsons...;}
Blissful Scrapping.

Ana, I completely get you when you say the pics might take away from your layouts. In some of your layouts that might be true, because your layouts are so amazing and beautiful that they tell a story all by themselves. But in some like this one when the pictures add to the lay out it is gorgeous. I just love those dump trucks and how you incorporated the right photos for this layout. perhaps in the future a grandson will come along to steal your heart and you will have boy pics for the boy layouts, If not the layouts are all beautiful all by themselves. HUgs always!
