Birthday Girl Layout

Today I was lucky enough to get about 4 hours of crafting done. Karli was at mother's day out and a friend came over to crop with me. We talked a lot and stopped long enough to have lunch so I only managed to get a 2 spread layout done and a birthday card (post & pics coming soon).  I know, I know, you are thinking 4 hours and that's all you got done! Yep! I'm slow and still trying to learn my Cricut Expression 2. 

Recently I came across 4x6photosketchblog that has tons of great layout designs, all using 4x6 pictures. I really hate cutting pictures down so this was an exciting discovery!  This is a blog I will be visiting a lot when I am scrapbooking.  I went back to a post on March 13 to find a layout that I wanted to use. I changed up the second page layout a little bit since it had 2 verticle pics and I only had one I wanted to use. After taking this picture I realized I had forgotten to journal in the empty pink space. I was too lazy to take another picture after I had journaled! :) TFL
