Sorry for the hiatus, but my little guy was born January 21 so we've been kinda busy since. I have been scrapping though, but not been able to blog. Here's a layout I just made on the Scrapbooking Retreat that we just had this past weekend in Banff. I had picked up the extra large buttons in a clearance sale about 4 years ago and finally was able to use them on this layout. Just goes to show that if you keep things long enough, you will eventually use them. I used my sister's Cricut Expression for the train (B is for Boys cartridge). I used the Friendship Large Alphabet for the title as well as heat embossing the stamped letters with clear powder just to make the title stand out. One technique I did learn from my sister recently was to use a white gel pen on colored paper to have the journaling stand out.
