Circle Weekly Challange 16

For this Weeks Challange on the Cricut Circle Blog It was titled "Cute as a Button".   They are having a baby theme.  Well my oldest "baby" is off in the Middle East.  I having been trying to keep a scrapbook for him since joining the Navy.  So when he was visiting this summer, I "stole" the photos off his laptop. When he first got to Bahrain, he was playing in the water alot.  Here he is playing with dolphins and went jet skying.  Even had a bar in the pool.  (We don't have that  in Kansas!)
  So the requirements for this challange was to follow the sketch in the blog, use 2 cricut cuts, use stamping and buttons.  Well the I did 2 pages for this group of photos.  I used my cricut for the font, and wave boarders.  I had cut out a coconut drink, but it just didn't fit later, so will use someother time.  I used buttons to accent my buttons.  I didn't really have any stamps that went so well.  But I love this sun by peachy keen stamps, so I could fit him in here easily.  I hope some day my son can appreciate the time I am spending on his book.  It is looking so different from when I started with no idea of what I was doing.   I like these sketch layouts alot, is really helpful.   I have a couple more days off work, so hope to squeeze some more crafting in.  We are hitting school hard tommarrow, so keeping my fingers crossed.
