Picture Day scrapbook layout made using the When I Was A Kid cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today's project is a layout I made using the NEW When I Was A Kid cartridge. This is another great cartridge for those scrapbookers out there. However, there are so many great elements that it is also very useful for all kinds of crafting!

All of the cardstock used is from Close To My Heart.
For the journaling spot, I used a retired stamp set from Close To My Heart. I love making my own!
I used sparkles and washi tape from Close To My Heart.

I'm starting to think that when I was a kid would be a versatile cartridge even though I don't have children. Have looked at the handbook for outdoor man & I would truly love to win it. So many masculine images, which are kind of hard to find. Thanks for hosting another great giveaway
