Making room for the new

Today I cut the straight pieces for FOUR double page layouts - the Skylark and Jubilee Workshops on the Go.  I think that they will be lovely pages, I will just need to find the right pictures.  I also cut the straight pieces (non-Cricut) for the Ivy Lane card Workshop.  Two days ago I started and finished a double layout and last week I started and finished another double layout.  Why am I so prolific?  Because next week I get to see a brand spanking new ANNUAL catalog from Close to My Heart.  NINE new paper kits, a new Cricut cartridge and LOTS more brand new stuff.  I am so excited to be in the first group to see what is in store for the upcoming year!

Here are the two double layouts that are finished.  The first will be going to the Mom of the baby boy I did some daycare for while she started back to work.  I remember those days of leaving baby - surely no one could care for him the way I could.  So I was happy to have George for a few hours a day while she eased back into the real world of full time work.  After a month with me, she was ready to put him into a regular Daycare (or maybe she was afraid I wouldn't give him back!  I used the paper kit "Babyckaes."

The second is of my grand-daughter Salem's trip to the zoo with her Daddy. I "see" her vicariously through my son's Facebook posting of her pictures.  These pics were particularly nice ones and did well in the layout. The paper pack for this one was "Free to be Me", the May special.
