Here is my A CHILD'S YEAR layout for this week. This was another cart that I really didn't want, but now that I have it I'm glad I do. LOL go figure. I really had fun putting this one together on my Gypsy because I knew I wanted to put my niece on it. I design alot of my LO's while on school bus trips (lots of free time while waiting) using the G then, as most of you know by now, I still love my DS (but would love an upgrade for this software) for tweaking and cutting it out. I am just very fond of my DS and I love the size of my LT screen. MY Gypsy is a great size for taking with me, I just put it in my purse and carry it around with me. This works really well for me. I Design most of my LOs while I'm sitting at these after school activities and this helps pass my time. I love them both and would be lost without either one.
For this LO I used everything on A CHILD'S YR cart Except for the Eggs (I used a small oval hand punch)and the hidden Tag on page two(I just cut a small rectangle and used a corner punch ). The font is included on the cart. I love it when a font is on the shape carts. I used the dotted Swiss card stock for my base and the patterned paper is from the spring glitter stack( I think last yrs) and I used AC card stock for the shadowing and some coordination's for the wording. I used just plain Black smooth CS for the silhouettes.
I used the card cutout that is on the this cart to use it for my picture frames. I shadowed it using DS. I also welded the wording in DS, again I just like the Size of my Lt screen to see it better. A note on the grass cuts, I used the grass cut on this cart but I cut off the flowers. I also welded enough grass pieces together to fit my 12" page.
I used two different frames on this page. I shadowed both with DS.

Here is a close up of how I journaled this LO. I just put adhesive on a certain part of the frame so I could slide this journal tag in behind the pic. Its not completely hidden so one will know its there. I still need to do the actual journaling, but will do that before I place the page in my album.
That will conclude this weeks LO's, we still have more to come next week so ck back with us then. NEXT week Debbie and I will be featuring the WALK IN MY GARDEN cartridge.
