Super Excited for FCCB-Spotlight Layout

Hi you all! I'm super excited because I'm the Guest Designer this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. Today begins their weekly challenge to use 3 pattern papers mix and match and my project is being featured along with the Design Team's isn't that cool! I was so excited when I was asked to join in, so I want to say thank you to them for including me this week! To enter the " " Challenge, click HERE.
I made a layout for my G-Son's one year book, His First Steps...
We've been waiting days for Zach to take his first steps and then we see the top picture on facebook, there he is taking his first steps to his Grandfather-Katherine's father. It was wonderful to see this :)
With a little help of the lawnmower he's just getting around so well that week all on his own, so proud :)
Okay so back to the making of the layout, the challenge was to use 3 pattern papers (mix and match) I'm lucky enough to already had my paper picked out from my  November Counterfeit Challenge kit (yep that one is still hanging around)  so I chose the red cardstock for the background and included
 the blue paper and yellow graph paper to make my die cuts for the layout. The Look Here came from Cricut Sampler cartridge cut at 2.5" and the negative of the cut was brought into the actual picture to point at the step he was making. I also used B is for Boy for the Footprints they were done with the layer option in real dial size of 1.75 for the foot and 2" for the shadow.
 Now the 3rd pattern piece comes from the diagonal vellum piece of blue footprints and thought is was fitting for this layout.
 The journaling block came for a cut out sheet in the Jan kit and that could also be considered a pattern piece too. This was a fun layout to do and I just love seeing the big milestones in Zach's life. Just a few more layouts and the album will be complete.
Used various stickers in this layout also and the vellum Moment in Time for a cut out sheet.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and thank you to Fantastic Cricut Challenge Blog for choosing me to be their spotlight designer this week it is a special honor for me.
Tomorrow I'll have a Thank You card for Card A Day Blog see you then....
