The Project:
Each week, there is a challenge issued over on the Cricut Circle blog.  I am always astounded by the wonderfully creative projects that are submitted.  This is my first time submitting and I'm nervous and excited! For this project, I wanted to create a whimsical layout featuring me and the friendly pirate I met during our trip to Myrtle Beach this summer.  He was quite the gentleman!  lol  I hope you enjoy my layout.  Information regarding the challenge and the ingredients are included below.  

Challenge Criteria:

At first glance, you may think this challenge is all about babies . . . but look again! We are usually the memory keepers in our households, but how often do you take the opportunity to step out from behind the camera and record something about yourself? This week we challenge you to create a scrapbook layout all about YOU. Your page must include the following:
  • (B) = Brads
  • (A) = Aqua
  • (B) = Butterfly
  • (Y) = You as the Subject
