Scrapbook Saturday at My Cricut Craft Room

It's Saturday!!! That means it's scrapbook layouts on My Cricut Craft Room.
For today's project I decided I wanted to try something a little different for my layout!  My kids have spent hours each day playing outside in the backyard this summer.  I have so many pictures of them on the swings, running through the yard, coloring on the deck, just having fun!  I wanted to try to capture the look of watching them through my kitchen windows! 
The window panes can be used as a mat for the pictures!   It's a pretty simple layout but I think it definitely reminds me of the joy I feel watching my kids play together outside!!!

I used 3 carts for this layout.
Twinkle Toes
Nate's ABC
Accent Essentials

The window panes are from using the negative space of cutting four 5 inch squares from Accent Essentials.  I then placed this layer onto a blue background paper to appear as sky!

The curtains are actually from Twinkle Toes! I love this cartridge.  Using my gypsy I hid the cut for the curtain top since I knew I wasn't going to use it.  I can't tell you again how much I love my gypsy!  I love that I can see exactly on the paper where i am going to cut and how I can choose to hide some cuts to save paper! 

The letters are all from Nate's ABC cartridge.  I really like the simple, clean font on this cartridge.  All letters were cut at 1 inch.

Well that's my layout for today!  I hope you enjoyed it.
