Have fun!!!


  1. I really like all of the various borders, what a great idea to stack different ones up like that. The background DP is really cool, so subtle, you think on first look that it's solid but it's got a great pattern.

  2. Love all the borders you used on this one Chris, looks great!

  3. Great layout! I now want those Cricut carts. :) I LOVE the color combinations. And the buttons & rhinestones add the perfect touch. Great job!

  24. Your LO is very striking. Love the papers and borders!

  25. I ADORE this LO! You are more talented than I am with those scissors. I have, probably 20 pairs, that came in a set years and years and years ago. I can never get them lined up right so the pattern repeats correctly. Mostly, I'm just inpatient =] I do really really really want that Cricut Cart now!

  26. Well done with those scissors... I find them to be a huge PITA! lol I haven't made much use of my CM Reminisce Accents cart, as of yet, but this is definitely inspiring!

    Deanna aka BettyScrappinStewart :D

  27. Very nice, good use of all the boarders. I have that cartridge I guess I better pull it out and use it!

  28. I love distressing so I like the fact that you used distressing on your border. Such a wonderful layout!

  29. Lovely LO !! What a great variety of borders, and I love the way you stacked them. The picture is gorgeous too !!

  30. Awesome layout....I'm partial to the combo of brown and pink!!!

  31. The colors on this are beautiful and I love all the different borders. Nicely done! ~RachelV

  32. Nice - I really like the bling and buttons!

  33. Pretty! Love the heart border (I must get that cartridge!) and love the distressing with ink!

  34. This really makes me want to break out the Cricut! Nice.

  35. Christina, I love your LO. You have reminded me of two things that I like to do but don't do often enough, 1) layering 2) using my cricut for borders. Thanks.

  36. awesome layout - love that paper line and will def have to take a crack at my CM cricut cartridge now

  37. I don't see my comment from I'll post again (sorry if you see it twice).

    I'm not usually a pink fan, like AT ALL, but this is such a muted version of it and it looks absolutely stunning with the brown. Shhh, don't tell anyone that I like something with pink in it! =D

  38. Hi Christina - Nice page! I love MME's "Lost & Found". It's so pretty I've barely used any, but you've inspired me to "get into that paper" and use some more of it!
    Juliet (aka Joyce)- came over from CC!

  40. Love the top border! Beautiful page!
