for my take on this weeks challenge i made a layout of my daughter when she was about 15...so about 12 years ago. . its actually a 2 page layout i just didnt have time with all the unexpected chaos to finish page 2 in time.. when its done ill post it here also. i used my cricut and indie art cartridge. i also used 3 of the same ribbon..added stickles and the way cool paper which my daughter LOVED when i showed her is from glitz design. dont forget to post on paperblooms in fact.. join us every week and be inspired..and inspire US! plus we'll have some goodies each week :) love and hugs! shelly
