Day 2 of blogging & I'm still trying to build my page & make it pretty. :) I'm going to attempt to add a photo now. Shudder!

Wow! That was easy ... just like the Staples Easy button. :)
This is a Layout I did for the 2nd Annual Canadian Gals On-Line Cricut Swarm. The challenges in the swarm are also what got me thinking I should start a blog as everyone seems to have one.
I used Graphically Speaking for the title - Precious @ 7" & Treasure @ 6". I cut the words about 5 times to create a chipboard effect as none of my cricuts like to cut chipboard. Then I used gold, copper & lime green Inka Gold to color the title & make it shine. The photo doesn't show all the colors but in real life it is so pretty. This was my first attempt at using this product even though it has been sitting on my shelf for about a year. I will definitely be using it more now.
Info on Inka Gold can be found here:
I also used a Lucky 8 punch (Classic Wreath) to create the die cut for the background. I love the We R Memory Keeper Lucky 8 punches & have a collection of 6 now. I think that is probably enough!
Next I added flowers from Prima & Petaloo, a rhinestone & voila! Done!
Thanks for visiting. ... Barb
