Fantabulous Cricut Day!!

It's Challenge Me Monday again over at FCCB!! This week, the Challenge is "Remember When..." We were asked to create a card, LO, or project to remember a special person, time, or anniversary. Wow! This is a challenge for those of us who don't really scrapbook!!! But, that's what I'm here for!! To take on the challenges!!! So, I did just that....and created a 12 x12 scrapbook LO to honor my grandmother and her love of quilting. I had a picture of me, opening up the quilt that she made me when I was 14. I only wish I had a picture of Gram with the quilt...it would make the LO that much more special. Here it is...



And here is the picture that goes with it...



And journaling....I've NEVER journaled before...I think this is ok! :)



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridges: George and Basic Shapes, Nursery Rhyme
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and patterned cardstock from my stash (sorry!)
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Sakura Black Glaze Embossing Pen
Gold Ribbon from my stash

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my LO!! Now, try to create something yourself to remember that special person, time, or anniversary...and link it up at FCCB to join in the fun! You have until Sunday, June 5th 11:59pm EST! Can't wait to see what you create!!

Nicley done. I wish I had more pictures of my Gram, so I could create some layouts of her.
