Good morning! We have two more sleeps (that is what I use to say to my kids if there was a big event coming up, only 4 more sleeps and then its Christmas) until we (Kel, Dawn and I) head to Creating Keepsakes Convention. We went last year for the first time and loved it. We are taking I think a total of 4 classes and of course shopping in between. This layout I did three years ago, since come September it will be our 18th anniversary. But I happen to come across and thought it fit the theme this week very well.

I was so impressed I could use pink paper with my husband in the picture!! The number 15 is chipboard from StampinUP! and covered with patterned paper. Rub-ons on the bottom of the page and I inked the little chipboard swirl.
We will definitely take pictures of the CK Manchester event.

  4. Hi Laurie,

    My Bosskut Gazelle is similar to a Cricut, but it uses files from my computer to cut instead of cartridges.

    Thanks for your sweet comments!

    Your layout is fantastic. I love looking at looking at the photos on peoples layouts.
