Cosmo Cricket


As so many of you know, Cosmo Cricket is accepting applications for their Design Team. Being a Cosmo Cricket lover, I HAD TO TRY OUT! I made this layout using the Wanted collection. Let me tell you, I have loads of this paper!! This paper is what I have done most of my dad's heritage book with. It is just so easy to use and so beautiful! It really works well with both girls and boy's layouts. This layout is designed around a picture of my kids that I took at Christmas time out in the goat pens. My son, the youngest, will be going off to college soon and our nest will be empty! I'm not ready, but I know that he is. The journaling on this layout reads... Making the decision to move to the country, watching you learn responsibility and compassion, spending time with the animals even now, depending on each other daily and being so close, knowing that you still enjoy time together, seeing the young adults you have become, I wouldn't change a thing. I wish they had stayed small longer, but as this layout says, I wouldn't change a thing about them!

This is a card that I made for my dad for Father's Day. I know I used it in my blog on Father's Day, but I wanted to include it here because I also used the Wanted Line for it. I told you I love this paper! I made this before I even knew of the design team call! I printed the words on a transparency and used alcohol ink that I made myself on the edges. The flourish in the upper right hand corner and the larger square are inside the card.




Finally, I made this fun layout of my daughter on her 5th birthday. I love how this paper is so fun and young. The die-cuts buttons just make the layout almost do itself! They are just so cute! I purchased this paper specifically for this picture. Ironically, it is not only perfect, but our daughter's nickname is Sunshine! I had to smile at that. I also used some of the blackboard chipboard here. How terrific that I didn't have to do any inking!! It is perfect just as it is. Just popped a brad in the middle and it was ready to go! I can't wait to try some watercolor pencils and paint on this chipboard.

So everyone at Cosmo Cricket... I would be completely thrilled to be on your design team!! Thanks for your consideration and for stopping by my blog!
