Cropped Mystery Box Challenge #2

Today  I finally tackled the second Challenge for the Cropped Mystery Box Challenge.

Challenge #2:

This challenge was to use Paper Layerz to create 9 mini scrapbook layouts. Then use a second sheet to create the embellishments.

So it just so happens my daughter is almost 9 months old.  I decided to show how much she has grown and changed in each of the 9 squares of the Paper Layerz.

Weekend Project Done!

We finally finished our weekend project. It took two weekends, but who is counting? My husband decided he was not happy with the finish so he sanded off the shellac and used General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Urethane Topcoat instead. It came out a lot more smooth and my husband, the perfectionist, was finally somewhat satisfied with it.

I had a lot of problems with Cricut Craft Room when I was trying to add the apostrophes, but I finally got them on after having to restart the program numerous times.  It kept freezing up on me, which was really aggravating. Hopefully Provo Craft keeps trying to improve the program because right now it still has a lot of bugs.
