Here is a 2 page layout I completed for a "victorian" challenge on my scrapbook board, Scrap N Chat. For this layout I used 2 sheets of tan cardstock as my base and inked and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing ink pad in vintage photo. The pattern paper is from a Die Cuts with a View paper pack called "Once Upon a Time" that I got on clearance for $5 at Michaels!! Love this paper pack, it is so rich and some of the paper has glitter on it which I love. I used 2 different sheets, one is the torn edges and one is the pattern background paper in the middle of the pages.

I cut the girl at 8" from my cricut cartridge, A Child's Year. I was looking for a 'praying' or 'kneeling' figure and I found the one of the girl kneeling down with a cat in her hands to work perfectly, I cut off the cat and with my scissors I rounded the arms to look like hands. I think it turned out nice.

Above her I wanted some sort of "time piece" so I cut the clock from the picturesque cartridge and this was cut at 2" as well as the layer (clock face) and I then used my brown Le Plume marker to go over the numerals and add little touches to the clock face.

I added some flowers that I had made last year at a Quick Quotes weekend and they work really well with this victorian/heritage feel. I also added some pearl accents and some lacy border ribbon.

Thanks for looking.

The past 2 days...

...have been a bit of a and spring cleaning, pretty much.

On friday we finished up our window by the page desk with all of the "Create A Critter" little guys I cut out with my Cricut, I made caterpillars for all of the pages and then different 'critters' for the page captains as well as Ellen and our supervisor, Ms. K. Mine is the snail in the grass.

The director at my job is a big Yankees fan so she had a little opening day celebration in the staff lounge complete with hot dogs, pizza, peanuts and I decided that the Mets fans need to battle back and show our love for the Mets so I'll be putting something together on friday which is opening day at Citifield this year. I started working on these last night, I have a few things up my sleeve. I know a few people already said they want to help out so I hope it will be a fun little get-together and a way for us Mets fans to battle back and eat some goodies in the process, as well.
