Princess Catie Layout

I had these really cute pictures of my 7-year-old daughter and I wanted to share them with all of you. I made them black and white. There is something about the way black and white pictures look. I just love them. In certain pictures, they just make the picture so much better in my opinion. This layout came straight out of my imagination. I love the splash of color too.









Ingredients:
Cricut Expression
Plantin School Book cart
Swirly stamp with Ink It Up! black ink
ATG gun
K&Company stickers
Brads
Craft Lite Cutter (mini zigzag cutting tool)
Provocraft pointed tool (to make holes for brads)
Xyron sticker maker
Xyron adhesive runner
Lace embellishments
DCWV Cardstock paper.

I also wanted to try out my newly re-adhesived (is that a word?) Cricut mat. I bought some Goo-Gone yesterday and I used it to clean off my mat, then I scrubbed it with soap and water. I taped it off and sprayed repositionable spray adhesive from Krylon on it. It seemed to work okay today; however, what I noticed is that although it makes the mat sticky, it seems to stay sticky on your hands if you touch it. I'm not sure this is the right kind of adhesive I should be using. I'll have to experiment a little more. Anybody have any suggestions as to what kind of spray adhesive I should use?

Much love and creativity,
Photobucket
