Good times! Scrapbook layout using the NEW Formal Occasions cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I can't believe it is only Tuesday! It should be at least Wednesday, right? I had an evening class last night that had a very annoying lady who sat directly behind me.  The class is art appreciation which I totally love, but this women totally does not understand the concept of a rhetorical question.

 Today I have a layout made using the NEW Formal Occasions cartridge. I just love all of the great shapes that this cartridge includes! I see so many possibilities! This will be a go to cartridge for me whenever I need a great shape to place a cut on for cards or even as a focal point.


The paper is from Close To My Heart.
I cut the title at 2 3/4 and the oval cut it sits on at 3 3/4".
This is a sticker that goes with the paper pack. I thought it was beautiful, so I included it!
The main shape that the photo mat sets on is cut at 11".
Thanks so much for stopping by today! You guys are so great! See you back here tomorrow!

Have a totally wonderful Tuesday!

Melanie,
I hadn't noticed all the shapes on this cart (it pays to check out the hand book not just the cart case). You are so right - it has great shapes and layers. The images are so similar to Tie the Knot, that I almost totally dismissed this cart. I will have to add this to my list of carts to consider. Thanks. Fab LO by the way.

I have an M.A. and know of what you speak regarding "the people who sit behind us!" from many, many classes. Unfortunately, I was probably that person sometimes, too! Enjoy your classes!
