Almost there

Just a few more days (and layouts) to go :) I know I didn't post here yesterday. Don't worry, I still got something done--I polished up one of the accordion albums for my daily scrapbooking. I had trouble coming up with a page last night. The problem was that I took too many good pictures on our Vegas trip. Nothing new for me--LOL! They were all zoomed in close, so I couldn't crop them small and I already had them printed. I wish I could be more like my friend Cyndie--she plans her layouts first, then has the pictures printed in the sizes she needs. I never think about it.

Anyway, I divided the pictures from our trip to Spring Preserve in Vegas into 3 layouts, but that still left me with 15 pictures on one of the pages. I tried on my own, I looked at sketches, and I couldn't come up with anything that made me happy--and I even had the perfect papers. So then I took another stack from the trip and was able to use an Imagine layout. But by the time I got it laid out, it was already late, so I left it to finish today. And after that super-long explanation, here it is. I'm really happy with it.

The papers are CTMH Free Spirit--one of my faves, even though normally I stay away from yellow. I also used the Legendary Moments stamps and Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge (have you figured out that I love that one?). I actually finished this layout over 3 hours ago and forgot to post--I only remembered when I came in to turn off the computer. That would have been really sad to come this far and not make it!

Wow you are doing so great with your layouts! I'm hoping I can have a really good couple of days to catch up on mine, lol. You've really done wonderful with this challenge. I'm inspired to go work on my pages but it's too late for tonight. Maybe I can carry the inspiration into tomorrow! Hope you had a good weekend!

I love your layout and this, too, is one of my favorite paper packs. With regard to a layout a day - quite an accomplishment!!
