A Family layout 46

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 13, 2011 @ 4:27 PM | ,

***I have two posts today~if you are looking for my CR84FN19 post please scroll down or click HERE ~ Thank You :)***

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend :) After getting settled in and unpacked from our mini vacation, I had some time to create so I made this layout featuring my sweet girlfriend's children, Jocelyn and Johnathan using various patterned paper made by Cosmo Cricut:
I pulled out paper from both the Cosmo Cricket: Circa 1934 Collection and Togetherness Collection to create my layout using the sketch shown below from the Cosmo Cricut blog, where they are offering a chance to one lucky participant the opportunity to get published in Scrapbook Trends magazine. I 've never submitted a layout for publication before so I thought this may be just the push I needed! :) Thank you Cosmo Cricut and Scrapbook Trends for this opportunity!
Strewn across the top of the layout, I made some flower embellishments from the Togetherness Collection: Making Plans and Reunion using S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG and S4-250 Big Scalloped Circles SM and a scattered about a few butterflies made from the Circa 1934 Collection: Ginger using a butterfly die template from S4-123 Flying Beauties.
 I made the journaling label shown below using a S4-169 Small Labels die template to cut a piece of paper from Togetherness Collection: Making Plans  then used Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers to complete the journaling.
Using a S4-116 Standard Circles SM die template to cut each letter to spell FAMILY from Circa 1934 Collection: Garbo which was then layered upon a label cut using a S5-027 Labels Twenty-One die template and a piece of paper from Togetherness Collection: Making Plans.
That's all I have for today. Thanks so much for looking! Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening :)
