Chalk It Up: Last Day of School 2014

I'm anxious for school to be out for the summer.  My grandmother would tell me to stop wishing my life away.  During our Easter/Spring break I was able to scrapbook one rainy afternoon.  It was one of my only days that we were not running around doing a million things.  I still have a nice stack of pictures from 2014 that need to be scrapped.  When I saw the pictures I ended up using for this layout, it made me long for summer break!  Only about 6 more weeks and I'll have a new Last Day of School layout to do!

Close up of my title

My goal is to always get as many pics on a layout as possible.  In this layout I used Chalk it up paper pack, complements, and accessories.  I also used the curlicue stamp set from the Artfully Sent Cricut cartidge.

Seasonal Expression 2 New Product Blog Hop

Thanks for hopping through our New Product Blog Hop featuring products from the brand new Seasonal Expressions 2.  If you are coming from Melissa Robinson's blog you are on the right track.  This new Seasonal Expressions is chock full of cute and exciting new products.  You can take a look inside on my website by clicking on the image below.

My favorite thing in the new expressions is the Blossom Workshop on the Go.  I think it is a great value!  You get the materials to make 15 cards and you have accessories and a small amount of paper left over.  You actually  have quite a bit of the accessories left over.  That always makes me happy!  This is how the kit comes (well, minus the pre-made cards...that is where YOU come in!)

These are the cards I made.  I love them.  
They were fun to make too.

Here are all 15 cards.  

Now hop on over to Aggie's blog.  Thanks for stopping by and if you have a second leave 
me a comment.
