When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Finally, a LO for Jackie

I finally made a 2-page scrapbook layout for my son Jackie.  I am also entering this project at Cooking with Cricut - Birthday Challenge.  This is going to be my first time to join Cooking with Cricut yet this isn't the first project I made for them.  For those who didn't know, I was planing to play along last week but I didn't made it to the deadline.  You wanna see the layout I made, please click HERE.

I intend to join in the fun at Cooking with Cricut as often as I can and I am hoping that it would encourage me to make at least 2-page LO every week.  

Here's the provided sketch for this week's challenge.
I used Cricut cartridge Nate ABC's.  The Jack in the box image was so perfect for my son Jackie...
 I used car die-cuts as embellishments for the scrapbook pages.  The Daddy got him a huge cake with a SUV towing a camper as cake topper. Little did we know that this birthday will be the start of cars and trains addiction.
 Times flies so quickly.  He still look very much a baby in these pictures.
 I added number 3 in every cars to give emphasis on his age.
Isn't Jack a cutie?  Yeah, that's double meaning...  Can't blame me, I'm crazy about my son LOL.

RECIPE:
PAPER: PTI, DCWV and Embassy
STAMP: Peachy Keen Stamps
INKPAD: Memento Tuxedo Black
TOOLS: Cricut Expression, Gypsy, PC paper trimmer, ATG, Zip Dry, and Zig 2-way glue pen
CARTRIDGE: Nate's ABC's
OTHERS: Sakura gelly roll pen
