Look Who's Having a Birthday! Olivia! That's WHOOOOOO

Working on Miss Olivia's first birthday.. I know it's only a year later! But I have been extremely motivated! I used an unlikely combination of carts with this one... I started out with Mini Monograms for the blue and green scallop pieces that I cut in half and used one half on each page. The strip across the top believe it or not came out of my scrap box. I was very impressed with myself for using my scraps :-)

The flowers were all cut from "Forever Young" I love this cart! The big daisy was cut and then layered with a pop dot between the layers to give it depth. The title was cut from "Hoot "N" Holler" One of the Cricut Lite cartridges from Wal-Mart. I love how it gives you all the different color layers without having to trim them out yourself, makes paper piecing a breeze!

I can't for the life of me remember what cartridge I cut the one from.... sorry! The title block is one from a My Mind's Eye collection I believe.
Doncha love this owl? I fell in love with her the instant I found her on my gypsy... she came from "Disney Princesses - Happily Ever After" I don't have the sizes on any of my cuts because I used my awesome GYPSY!!! Gotta tell you if you don't have one of these it MUST be your next purchase. You can actually size each item to fit your page without worrying about what "size" it is with the dials. Super dooper easy.

Believe it or not Olivia is going to be 2  years old in 16 days and I am still working away on her baby pictures and  her 1st birthday party is yet to be scrapped.... Nana has got to get the lead out!!
I hope you enjoy this layout. If you have any questions please be sure and leave a comment. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks for visiting!
