Music.

Amy loves music. Always has. From the time she was about 9 months old and would start waving her arms around whenever Low came on from Flo Rida. Now at 5 she sings to almost every song that comes on the radio. She remembers the words to songs when I can't. She seriously loves music.

Last night I decided to check out some scrapbooking challenges. I happened to come across Kraft it Up and their September challenge. I took one look at the sketch and knew I had to do it.

However, it wasn't that simple. Nothing was working for me and it felt really forced. So I mucked around on Facebook while I set my cameo to work on cutting out the little doilies. Once they were finished, I started playing around with placement and it all came together quite quickly after that.


Don't you love it when you have bits and pieces you never thought you would use and then you find an actually use for them? Who would have thought I could use so many crocodile embellishments on one page?

    1. I know, hey? I have so much old stuff that was always in my 'too good to use pile'. Hopefully I can start using it all up!

  5. Too stinkin' cute! I'd love to know the settings you used on the doilies... (my Cameo would just scrunch that fine detail!) Thanks for having fun with this month's KIU challenge

    1. That's a good question! Afterwards I was kicking myself as I have a die for the BigShot that does the same thing in about 2 second flat! D'oh!

      Anyway, I think it was set to 5 for bazzill cardstock and I slowed down the speed as they were quite intricate. I hope this helps!

    2. Actually, it wasn't bazzill, it was a smooth piece of card which I bought for printing PL cards out on and never did! It's Quill brand I think and I bought it from Officeworks. It is about 210gsm.
