It's always an adventure at my house and taking pics of layouts is no different. I went outside in the late afternoon (duh) to try to take this picture and it is COLD (another duh). My dog came with me and ended up running three houses down so I had to leave my layout ON THE GROUND to chase after him. Luckily it didn't go anywhere. But the quality of the pictures just aren't that good. And the computer I usually use is still on vacation and the other one is slow and just plain wierd...oh well, on to the layout!!

This layout is pictures of my son sleeping. I realized quickly how many I had and just how cute he looked sleeping (don't all babies??). He obviously can sleep ANYWHERE and that's where the layout came from. This is for two challenges again: Just Buggin' (Challenge #14: Layers -Use at least two die cuts and layer them together. (for instance, cut out flowers in two different sizes and layer them on top of eachother, two snowflakes, etc). I cut the "Z"s out at different sizes and two different colors then used dimensionals to pop them off the page and put them slightly angled from each other. The other challenge is Sketchy Thursdays and they had a layout to use.
The patterened paper is CTMH and the solid is just random cardstock (scraps, even), the font is Lyrical Letters (sleepyhead in Jack Sprat, the Z's in Jumbo), and "sleepyhead" I cut out of foam. I don't have a deep cut blade (Christmas, maybe!) so I put the blade at 6, speed at 1, and pressure at 5. I cut it twice.
