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.

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge - Once Upon a Time/Folklore

Two days ago, I started working on an scrapbook album with "Once Upon A Time/Folklore" theme.  Goodness gracious, I thought I will never get it done but finally I got done with it last night.  This is my entry for Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge and National Craft Month Celebration.

This project is an 8X8 chipboard album and I used a .25gauge plastic sheets from Grafix Arts for the cover.   The plastic sheet is so much lighter than acrylic sheet but sturdy enough to use as your cover.  I really like the idea that I can view from outside the first and last scrapbook page.  Enjoy viewing the album:

STAMP: Peachy Keen Stamps (faces), Making Memories (journaling block), Prima (journaling block) and Scrappy Cats (journaling block)
INKPAD: Memento
TOOLS: Cricut Expression, Gypsy, EK Success papershaper, MS edge punches, MS circle cutter, Cinch binding machine, PC paper trimmer, ATG, Zip Dry, Plaid pop dots and Zig 2-way glue pen
CARTRIDGE:  I used 10 different cartridges for this project.  Thanks to Gypsy...

Forever Young (shoes)
