Week of Layouts Day 2 & Double The Giveaway And A New Stamp Release

Good Morning!! I want to thank everyone who stopped by my blog yesterday and left such sweet comments!! I had alot more people then I thought comment so I will be using random.org to pick a winner. I also want to thank my DT Sister's for helping me out by posting about my giveaway on there facebooks. Todays layout was originally going to be a card but when I cut out the image to go with the sentiment it was cut too big so I knew it would be perfect on a layout!! My daughter also helped me out with this layout.

What I used:

                              Winter Wishes "happy, delightful, cute
                                                             and the stars"        
Twinkle Toes Lite Cartridge: piano cut at 3", mat cut at 4.7",  speech bubble cut at 2", music notes cut at 2"
1 " Hole Punch (daughter punched these out)
Cuttlebug die (from Halloween 2x2 set)
Cuttlebug embossing folder:Fleur de Lis

  10. Lovely layout. Cute video. You must be a proud mama.

  11. I love this layout! Do you know how many times I have used Twinkle Toes and had never realized there was a piano on that cartridge? This is why I visit the blogs I follow daily. I always am amazed at the new things I discover from my fellow Cricut crafters!

  15. Kristan,

    Your layouts are making me cry! You do all the things with your daughter that I used to do with mine! She is 31 years old now, so lovely and talented but she lives too far away and I miss her! She plays piano too! I started getting her lessons (I really couldn't afford them) but she loved music so much. It was totally worth it.

    I have to say of all the sentiments I see on the stamps, I would love to have the one that says "Smitten" my 29 year old son is really, truly, madly, deeply in love for the first time in his life. He is a Smitten boy! lol!


  16. you daughter is adorable... i love your layout and the colors you chose... i would love the stamps and use many words but if i could only pick a couple i would chose,,, love ya and happy.... :) lindaplusthree at yahoo dot com

  17. What a sweet layout, I love to memorialize my kids activities. It is so much fun to go back and look at the layouts. I also love how you used the sentiment stamp on the layout. I have never done that, however, you have inspired me to challenge myself to use a sentiment on my next layout.

    There are so many sentiments from the Winter Wishes set that could be used on a variety of holiday layouts. I thinking "Peeking" would be cute on a tag on a gift for a holiday layout. I may have to try that. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  18. I like this layout. I think your daughter is adorable. I have no idea what i would have put on it...

  19. So cute! I enjoyed the video, too. I've never seen a toy grand piano like that! Your layout is adorable!
    As for stamps, perhaps "Great day" and "Good time"...
