Paris Birthday Layout

Well yesterday was our very first Callahan Country Bugs Cricut swarm and felt it was a huge success. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and hopefully learned something new about their amazing machines, the Cricut and the Gypsy.  I know I just love both of my girls, and I don't use one without using the other. I posted some pictures of our Swarm on the Cricut Swarm tab if you would like to take a look.

This is a birthday layout that I made at the crop for a contest I have entered.

  1. I checked out the pictures of the first swarm and they ALL are scrap-o-licious! lol
    It is hard to pick "my best" so I will have to go with all of them! Woo Woo.
    Wish I could have made it! Miss ya'll.
    Next swarm I will have to participate "web style". Let me know what the theme is ahead of time, because of work schedule, and I'll send a picture by e-mail. Love ya'll ... Lee ( ~ Flash ~ )
