Day 6 part 2

so looks like we didn't go out for lunch.... instead Elsie has gone to bed and I've squeezed in another page... 
being NSD yesterday there were tonnes of online crops, challenge weekends etc. so I chose one: the studio calico blog...and started there.
I looked through a few of their challenges and the sketch one called to me, as I wasn't sure how much time i would have. 
there are 5 sketches to choose from and I just did the one at the top of the list, and i may continue to work down it until I can scrap no longer :)

anyways heres a link to that page

and here is my page based on the first sketch

Hexagons seem to be the latest trend at the moment, and one that i hadn't tried so far so i thought i would give it a go.... to be honest I hadn't tried it because I didn't think I had anything to cut them with and i didn't fancy cutting them all out by hand.
It suddenly came to me whilst looking at the sketch that maybe the cricut had a hexagon, so I goggled cricut hexagon and found a post where someone was asking the question that i needed.... which cricut cartridge has hexagons?!?!?!
It turns out the answer was accent essentials and I have that so I was very happy.
I loved piecing together all of the bits and already knew which photo I was going to use before I started. it was very quick very easy yet I think it looks very effective.

what do you think????



  1. This is a super page, slow down missus! Love the hexagon and the red/white. Elsie really is growing up. EmG x

  2. Loving your hexagons!!! Love the red and white against the black and white photo! But, I can't believe you wouldn't try it by hand cutting the hexagons - when I did a layout with hexagons, that was exactly what I did ... :)
