Crop layouts

I toldya I didn't get a lot done. Lol

And I think this one needs something else, but I can't figure it out. ??

One of the cards. It's so simple, but I really liked it. It's all Cricut.

I used popdots to raise the hat.

And I need some serious HELP on this page!!!! Totally not my style, but I bought this paper way back after we got home from HI, because I knew it would be perfect for this picture, but I'm stuck on how to do it. It's so plain. How can I add to it without taking from the paper?

Obviously, my mojo was OFF yesterday. LOL

I LOVE the idea to scrap the words he uses. I've been writing them in the kid's baby books. This is cuter. (Hangaburger and hopsital my favorite Calebisms)

I really should do a layout of Natalie's words, she still has some great ones. (just now she called me Machiovelli (sp?)). anyhow, that's a terrific layout. And I LOVE how you block justified your title on feeding a baby, that's awesome!!!! I wouldn't touch the Hawaii page, I think it's perfect just like it is. the card looks great - I always agonize over graduation cards, simple is better. saving yours in my 'lift folder.

I think you got a lot done considering how much time you spent helping others.

Great job! I'll have to figure out how to spell some of Karl's words to copy your page:) I like the Hawaii page the way it is.

I'm totally stealing the word page idea from you. Oh, and the Hawaii page is perfect as is.

Charys, I love them all and I also had a hard time with some paper I bought that looked like the Hawaii paper. For the 2nd one if you wanted to add something you could add a bright orange mat around Kayson's photo. If you do just make it a tad bigger than the photo and the mat will fill up some space on the top under t.shirt. KWIM? For the Hawaii one I think it looks great. I would say your only other choice with that one would be to cut around the trees and car with a knife but leave them attached at the bottom and stick another piece of paper in between???? Sorry I am so bad at trying to tell you in words, I need to be there. I say leave it, it is really cute!

I like the HI page as is. I think it looks great!

The word page is precious. Could you maybe just add some doodling on it? Or stitching? I don't think it needs any embellishment really. Oh, maybe a few leaves on the right side or some of those swirls that match the paper? I'm not really good at this but I tried?

I've been working on a word page for patrick too. I can't wait till it's done but I need a sewing machine first. I may borrow my moms and have her help me with that page.

I can't figure out what to tell you for the Hawaii page. It's a great page just as is though.

Thanks for the good comments and ideas girls! Tia and Kelly...I'm going to try matting it and adding the swirls. I think that's exactly what is missing on the words page.

Very nice! I like the Catch a Wave page as is. I know the feeling of being a little disappointed when you don't get as much done as you were hoping, but the stuff you did get done turned out so great!

those are awesome LOs. I agree with the other ladies I wouldn't change the hawaii LO.

Love the one with all his words. I have it in my scraplift folder as well. Great idea

1) LOVE the red ribbon up there with the clouds. Something I would have never thought to do!

2) This idea is just perfect! I love how you captured this time in a page.

3) simple, but adorable. I like how you made it stand out.

4) Um, I honestly like it. I think it looks great!

Great work Charys. I too love the ribbon on the goat feeding page...it really ties in well with her jacket. So cute. And I love the Hawaii page. I think some turquoise to match would really add some kick to the page..I wish the swirls that were already on the page could be colored turquoise. I know you will make it look perfect when you're done and I really think it's good just like it is. Please show us the finished product okay?

I love them all but I really, really like how you scrapped his words. I'm adding that to the scraplift file!!! Hope you don't mind;)
