mojo monday 315

Hello Crafty Friends!
    I really wanted to make a card with the beautiful reindeer that the new CTMH cricut cuts! So I cut some out and waited....tonight I was checking all my usual blogs and saw the mojo sketch and thought that would work perfect.
I used the beautiful frosted paper and the colour dye ribbon by CTMH that I sponged twilight ink onto. What do you think?? I love it :)

Atlantic Hearts Sketch # 25

Hello Crafty Friends!

Here is the layout from Atlantic Hearts Sketch

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, or if you have come from Tamara Lisowski's blog here then you are in the right place!

For my layout I really wanted to use the babycakes and show how it can be for more than just the themed baby layouts. I had the pictures from 2000 that I had so that's where I started. I looked on pintrest for layout inspiration and used the layout from Nicole Norris. I also used the circuit artbooking cartridge :) I think it needs more embellishments...what do you think?
