My latest quiet time pages ;)

I feel like I'm short a page, but I can't remember missing a day this week (other than Monday when I was driving). So strange. Actually, now that I think about it, I took Tuesday off to recover and I wasn't feeling good. Whew, that explains my confusion. Wink

Anyhow, I did two more pages in Jordan's professional picture book:

And this is the page I did yesterday, I'm really pleased with it (although for some reason this photo of the page seems grainy to me, sorry about that!). The big picture is matted in a chocolate brown that matches the brown in the patterned paper. I shadowed the pink letters in the same brown - I'm not sure how well the brown comes across in this photo.

Good job Gwen!

I love how you put Andrew's pic in the circle on the bottom one!

Great pages.

I really like the idea of the professional pic pages. Cute idea. I like how they are all simple and well done. I really like the last one. Just curious, how did you shadow the letters? I like the look.

I have a cricut machine, and it has settings for the shadow outlines. that machine ROCKS!!!!

each of my kids has a book for professional pictures. my intent is to keep the pages simple, I rarely use any embellishments on them. Andrew's book is pretty much done to 2006 and I haven't started Natalie's (waiting to catch Jordan up first)

Those are all great! I love the crisp cleanness of the professional photo ones and the last one is fantastic.
I am thinking about getting a Cricut. I've heard such good things about them. Are they hard to figure out? And do you have more than one cartridge? Sorry all the off topic questions, but I'm curious. Smile I've seen some pretty good deals on Ebay.

I think it's simple to use, but I had a friend show me first. Our LSS offers a class on it, she says that there's so much more that it can do than what is explained in the user guide. I'm gonna look online for that info (when I have free time). I've bought one cartridge so far. I want a lot more, but my budget doesn't include it right now. My birthday is in November, I'll be asking for AC Moore giftcards from the family. Lol
