If you are like me, you love My Mind's Eye!  I've been a fan for years, and their new lines are so fun!  I decided to create a layout of my daughter's first day of Jr. High (insert Momma-gasp here!) using their Presh Cut & Paste line.

I decided to first use the triangles patterned side of the "Noted" Record paper.  I fussy-cut some triangle borders.  Next, I combined white paint with some CTMH Key Lime re-inker (color discontinued) and spread some on both pages.  I also dropped some Indian Corn Blue re-inker mixed with water randomly on the pages. I sewed the triangle borders on the pages as well as put a sewn border across the top of the pages.  I used my Cricut and CTMH's Artbooking cartridge to cut  two large triangles using "Beautiful" Presh C&P paper, and sewed them on as backgrounds.  I cut five other smaller triangles in several of the pieces of patterned paper, and sewed a line through them.

The rest came together quickly with a title, some brads, and journaling. I popped up the hash tag in the title, the journaling, and the square photo with the stamped border to give the layout some more texture.

I hope you enjoy the layout!  See you soon.
