My First Challenge Completed!!

Here you go ladies, here's my first done challenge!! As I was going along, I realized that I hadn't used my cricut at all so I added the cute bear in the pumpkin patch. He was cut with SCAL2 (cut SCAL would work and I have the cut file if anyone wants it)....that's a pattern from

This layout is quite heavy since the paper is just piled on it. Each piece of paper is matted and the photo mats are triple matted. I used the brads that I bought in CT while at Tuesday Mornings. The leaves and spikey thing is from M's in the flower section. Most of the paper is from Scrap Pad To Go purchased at Ollie's. It's by K&Company. The big polka dot paper I have no clue where I got it from. I found it in my blue file when I was searching for paper. The solid rust color is by American Crafts and was also purchased at Tuesday Mornings in CT. The bows are done with raffia adn there are bazzill buttons under them.

Almost forgot to post where I scraplifted from. Here's the pic that I used for inspiration and here's the link to the Scrapbarn.

If there is anything from this layout you would like made for you, please don't hesitate to ask.


ps....I actually fulfilled my personal challenge, to finish this layout this weekend!!


  1. great job!!! i LOVE it, will start my layout tomorrow.

    so do you love your scal2?? I've been debating on getting it for a long time but still have yet to do it, it's so hard for me to give up a big chunk of change for it instead of buying a cart here and a cart there...but everytime i see a svg file it makes me want it.

  2. I just adored SCAL. I just updated to SCAL2 this weekend. It did pick up some add'l features that I haven't quite figured out yet but I will. It's a wonderful program and doesn't limit you to carts or having to buy them. There are times I'm short on time so I go buy a svg file but I love making my own.

  3. Oh that is very pretty! I love it! SCAL??? Don't know if I can take in anything else. I can't even upload a picture here lol !!! What is svg? I'll get my layout done.. or does my Snowglobe count?? lollololol!!!
