I used the Designer Calendar cartridge for the January title, the Celebration cartridge for the hat, Elegant edges & Plantin Schoolbook for the photo matting that I created, and the Plantin Schoolbook & Tags 1 cartridge for the Top Five Tags. I used the MCT gift card die to create the pocket for the Top 5 tags. I embossed part of the card before I cut the die and I inked the embossing with some blue ink.
Those tags are to write down a few of the special things. January was a monumental month. He took his first steps and we are starting to see more of his personality. The flag paperclipped to the pocket is a die cut from MCT and so are most of the stamped sentiments. I haven't put the picture in the blue matting but I will as soon as I get my photos printed. I used a bookmark index card that I bought at WalMart (if I remember correctly). There are 5 different colors of cards and these may come in handy for journaling.
Looking at the index card now, I will probably distress the edges. I didn't cut out a clock image with my Cricut. I decided to stamp and emboss some clock faces. The stamps were Tim Holtz. I just cut them out and used glue dots to place them. I added a flag at the last minute with Good Times stamped on it. I had so much fun with this layout. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the layout.
