My mother found this picture of my then-6-month-old son.  It's hard to believe he's 10 years old already!  As soon as she handed me the picture I just *knew* I had to get out the rest of my Huntington papers. 

First, have you seen the CTMH glitter paper?  Oh my goodness, is it pretty and shiny.  It cuts in the Cricut like butter (use setting 5 on your actual blade and 4 or 5 on your depth) and it looks really marvelous on a layout. 

Here you go.  Some Huntington & glitter goodness.  I cut "grateful", the scroll, and the leaves out with the Artbooking cartridge.  The glitter strip on the left isn't paper, it's actually the shimmer trim ("ribbon" that's self-adhesive!).

Isn't that one cute little kiddo?  That's before his hair went curly and crazy.  :) 
His eyes were still green and my favorite cousin, who has unfortunately now
passed away, gave him that beautiful baby bracelet. 

After taking the picture of the entire layout I decided to add some 
mocha adhesive gems here and there. 

Supplies used:
Huntington patterned paper (HERE)
Glitter paper, brown and tan assortment (HERE)
Bronze shimmer trim (HERE)
Opaques mocha adhesive gems (HERE)
Keyboard Kraft Alphabet (HERE)
Cricut Artbooking cartridge (HERE)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!




  1. Oh he was such a cute baby :) Gems are popular around here right now too :)
