OK so that title probably didn't clear things up. I saw a layout awhile back on someones blog that was a one page sketch and featured a large circle frame that had points that were folded back. It looked sorta like a sun although I am not sure if it really was a sun. I spent hours searching for it this monring and can't find it anywhere. I hate it when I don't save an idea that I love for future reference! If anyone remembers a layout like this and can refer me to the source I would be incredibly grateful.

Paper Crafters Unlimited before I can make the page. I also haven't received the photos yet that I want to use with these. I took advantage of Snapfish's recent sale of 200 prints for $2 and have lots of photos on the way. I used Stretch Your Imagination cartridge to cut these with my Gypsy and Cricut. I used Diamond Dust to make the gumdrops and letters look like they are candies. I used Glossy Accents and a white gel pen to decorate the candy canes.
So my sister has been nagging me to update my blog. Problem is I haven't been crafting much. For many reasons. A big one being that the humidity in my basement makes my paper wimpy and therefor very difficult to cut on the Cricut. I managed to finish this layout with a lot of cursing at the paper and the cricut. Fortunately with the help of Stickles you can' really see all the places where the paper is torn. I made these cuts with the Life's a Beach cartridge. I used a sketch and would like to give credit to the artist but I can't remember where I found it. If you recognize it leave me a comment and I'll give credit where it's due.
