At the Park - layout

I really think I need to do a lot more layouts that don't stress me out! This one was an easy one and there was no stress what so ever and ya know what...I like it!

Supplies used:
Cricut - E2; Don Juan cartridge; Locker Talk cartridge; Seasonal Cake Cartridge
Scenic Route - Garden Grove collection
Signo UM 153 gel pen
Cardstock - various
Prima - flowers
Janome Sew Mini
Cat Eye Chalk Ink

I don't know how many people have Don Juan but I love the font on this cartridge! There isn't an upper and lower case, just one case and I am not sure really which it is. I thought it might drive me crazy being that way but I actually like it!

The redeeming factor is that the font does have a shadow! There are some cute cuts on the cartridge as well but to tell the truth, I don't think I have used many of them yet.

The slide is cut from Locker Talk. The silver of the slide is pop dotted. I wish I had cut the slide out of blue but I wasn't going to go back and do it again! The grass is from Seasonal Cake.


  1. What a perfect LO--love your accents on the letters and those little flowers are just perfect!

  2. Wow, I need to look at my Don Juan!
    I'm not sure I ever cut a font from it! :)
    Love this layout!

  3. Love the font! I don't have that one. You are always an inspiration!

  4. Awww, don't worry about the slide. Just put some blue flowers down there and call it balanced.

    Also, did you weld the shadow on the title?

    Very cute LO. Inspires me to dig out some older pics and get to work!

  5. Okie,
    I really like this LO and I love the font on Don Juan too! I look forward to your daily post, tfs.

  6. Very nice layout. Those are two of my favorite cartridges - Don Juan and Locker Talk.

  7. The title is welded. I usually always weld words when I can. I think it makes them a lot easier to apply.

  8. Adorable! Love how you did the title with the shadow and white accents. Super cute with those flowers at the bottom too!

  9. Ahh so sweet. I love this page. I love the font. I dont have that cartridge. darn. That is my favorite "a" I use to have to teach it when I taught a reading program called Distar. I loved that program it got those little "I don't want to I don't know how to read" kiddos reading.
    That slide turned out great.

  10. I know I should be doing more layouts and this one is making affirm why. I'm a first time mom of a soon to be 2yr old and I haven't scrapped a darn thing. Nice layout okie. Smooches... Feicia at

  11. I love the look of the don juan font, but sadly I don't own it :( I think it was on the rewards site for a little while but then it was gone, boo hoo. I'm still waiting...

  12. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this page layout. It is stinkin cute Okie!
    You have such a talent for creating! I am thinking I am going to have to get the Don Juan cart and not let it make me "crazy".

  13. Great layout...I need to explore the Don Juan cartridge some more. I love how you added the white gel pen to the letters. Adds a little somethin' somethin'!
