tricycle circa 1948...

my final share from the layouts I made with the Best. Day. Ever. kit......


 more cute pictures of my mom, I had never seen these before.  The day after I made this layout I gave it to her--she put it right on display....
closeups:
The title work is a combination of a cut from mr. cricut, and those tiny letters from Lily Bee (I LOVE these--TOTALLY genius and easy to work with!)  Do you notice the tiny stamp by the heart--clever, it's the name of the kit!
 this might be hard to see BUT I actually "quilted" on this layout...you can see the zig zag, but I actually did a straight stitch and made it "crazy" driving my machine all over the strips...
this layout was inspired by Celine Navarro (if you click on her name and scroll down, you will see the layout)  What was TOTALLY cool and inspiring.  Was Celine posted on Two Peas the same day I did.  I made a comment on how she inspired me, and she left me some creative love on my layout!  Felt pretty honored....
Wanted to mention ONE more exciting thing about this layout...it was featured on the Club CK blog!!  So excited!!
Anyway, I'm off on the run!  Thanks so much for the visit today! Make your day AWESOME!
