RAWR zoo scrapbook layout made using The First Few Years cartridge.

Hello, friends!

 I hope you all are having a fun and safe Memorial Day!

It's Monday, so it is Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge day. For this challenge, I was supposed to make something with a zoo animal on it. It has been so long since I have made a layout and I thought this challenge would be better suited as layout, so this project was born!

Today's project is a scrapbook layout that I made using The First Few Years cartridge. This cartridge really makes scrapbooking easy and quick! The handbook gives you a design for each layout and provides the sizes of the cricut cuts themselves. This really gives those of you wanting to quickly put together a book away to do that beautifully. Also, this cartridge is great for those of you who just need a creative jumping point!

All paper is from Close To My Heart. The patterned paper is now retired, but it was too perfect for me not to use!
I used burlap and Square Studs from Close To My Heart.
