We have made it through the first week of school here in the Wills house.
I would like to know HOW it is that I spent 6 years and 10 months trying to get this kid to sleep past 4:30 am and now that she has to be up for school by 6:30 I am dragging her out of bed - REALLY???? Luckily things have gone quite smoothly and I am thoroughly enjoying the routine and the peace and quiet during the day. I get much more done when I am on a schedule!
I am excited about today's post - it is my first post for the Cut It Up challenge blog! Our challenge this time is Labor Day - make a project celebrating pregnancy or new babies and remember to use a die cut! I was unsure what I was going to do at first but then it occurred to me that I have LOADS of pictures of new babies - baby kittens! So here is my layout of the Candy kittens:
This was our second litter of rescue kittens - Mom, Candy, 1 boy, Twizzler and 3 girls, Peppermint, Skittles and Taffy.
I used this cute cut from the Cricut cartridge Kate's ABCs - there are several really cute kitty images on it. Pezza picked this one out.
The scalloped borders are cut using the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge and I did the title in Make the Cut - I love the shadow feature it has now! Makes things SO easy. I cut it using my Black Cat Cutter.
I hope all of you who also like using die cuts will join in on our challenge!
