Great job on Day 1 ladies!! Here's your challenge for day 2. Use homemade flowers or pinwheels on your layout. Make sure you make the flower or pinwheel. For the flowers yes you can use ones from the cricut or other die cutting machine.

I had pulled these pics out as an option for what to scrap yesterday I took a page from Chantelle's tips and used astericks (sp??) for the flowers (cuttin up)

I did another one, cause I've never made a pinwheel. I've always thought they were really cute, but never attempted them before (it's also the layout challenge from the crop, I LOVE this sketch)

Astericks are fantastic flowers! I'll have to do that sometime! And I've never made a pinwheel, so I may just give it a shot!

She's peeking under the door. She's gotten very good at it... she thinks it's funny to open and close doors, but sometimes she closes them all the way without meaning too and she just sits there and looks under it until someone lets her out Also She does it if Kate's crying her room and she can't get to her... it's really cute (or so I think)

great page tamara! I was going to scrap during their naps, but they're alternating nap times today

Very cute, Alycia!
Janessa - Great job on the pinwheels and I love the paper combination you used

Tamara - I love those cute little airplanes!!

I also used Chantelle's idea for flowers along the side of the photos....

Alycia- What font is that? And did you glue two pages together to make those double sided pin wheels? Very cute!

Tamara- Love the brads you used in your pinwheels!

Carrie- I think your comment to me was meant for Alycia, lol! And I <3 your layout!

Here's mine:



I might try to do one with pinwheels too but idk if I'll finish it. I made a couple for practice, though! Fun!

Janessa- great page! I love the combos you use for your flowers. The font is base camp (that and cuttin' up are really all I ever use) and I didn't have to glue paper together. I had this weird paper that on one side had the small heart design and the other side was broken up into 4 coordinating quadrants, so I just cut the quadrants apart and it worked really well for the pinwheel idea

Carrie - how did you do that title?? That's such a great page! I love the "no shirt no shoes no problem"

Great layouts, ladies!! I'll try to come back and make better comments soon.


Thank you so much for having options other then flowers. It's kinda hard to use flowers with boys. Though I did use flowered paper. I'm not sure if you can read the title, but it says "The Breezy Boys".

Okay its not the best pinwheel, but it works! They're easy but hard at the same time, I've learned. LOL I don't know why my pages always come out kinda blurry. I'll work on that!

Love the pages ladies. I have to re-try the pinwheels. Mine weren't pretty at all.

So here's my page with flowers. I made the flowers from punched hearts. I need help though with a good title - I was 35 weeks along.

Oops! I must have been scrolling too fast! Your page turned out great and I love the Photos, Janessa! Your pinwheel looks great, too

Alycia - its just the lyrical letters cartridge and then I used stickles.

Chantelle - Very cute page!

Amanda - Nice colors/papers and the pinwheel turned out nice! I’ve never tried making one but after seeing all the ones here I’m going to have to try, so cute!

Becky - love it The flowers are really nice, another thing I’ve been wanting to try out!

Kelsey - adorable! The pinwheel fits really well with that LO, too
