The Year in Review by my DGD

The January Monthly Challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog is: The Year in Review.

The year 2011 has come and gone and now we want you to take the opportunity to look back at what this year has meant to you. Create a scrapbook page or mini album celebrating the events of 2011. It could be a page that uses just one photo, like Shantaie’s, or 12 different photos (one summarizing the events for each month). You might not want to use any photos at all and just use journaling to tell your story . . . it’s up to you!The WINNER of this challenge will receive a $150 Credit to! The Challenge: Create a scrapbook page or mini album reviewing the year 2011. What was memorable about the year overall? Or maybe you want to summarize the events that happened each month in your life. Whatever your approace, use your Cricut machines to tell your 2011 story.
Rules and Guidelines: Circle Blog Challenges are open to Cricut Circle Members only. Your project must be newly created for this challenge and include atleast 2 Cricut Image Cuts

This is my submission:

I couldn't come up with anything until DGD Faith was here this week and she had written a note about her dog her mom and dad had to give to a friend at the end of the year because they didn't have a fenced in yard and he was not a good inside dog, being a dalmation, and she still misses him terribly. His name was Max. And she didn't know what to do with that note. And she had just been looking at some of pics from last year from a trip to Hot Springs with my DD and DGS and then all kinds of things that happened last year. Then the light bulb went off. She LOVES this book that I cut some paper from my stash and added to this "your story" cover and is loving making diecuts to go with the pages! This is what she has done so far, besides blinging the front! I think she enjoyed that most! The little girl and puppy are from Imagine Better Together, the Ipod is from Paisley. The Faith and 2011 on the front cover was printed and cut using vinyl and Blast Off! Love that cart! I'll show you more as she finishes more! She's busy cutting dogs and cakes and presents for her birthday party! I'm amazed she didn't start there!
Thanks for stopping by and good luck to all my circle friends!
