My First Layout Of 2010 My "beautiful" Daughter Glue, Scissors , Paper DT Challenge Jan

First layout of 2010 My Beautiful Daughter.
Here is my first layout of 2010. This is my entry for The Design Team over on Glue Scissors Paper. The challenge was to use some element of our hand writing on a project.
This was a Huge challenge for me as I Hate my Handwriting. But I also think it is important to record your Handwriting for generations to come. It is Part of you and should be shared.

I had fun exploring My cricut cartridges.
Supplies used
