Cropped Event Paper Layerz Mini Layout Challenge

Hello fellow crafters! Heres another project I have made for the Cropped Event. Warning, Picture over load:)lol.

Challenge #2 is to use one of the Paper Layers from the Mystery Box to create a Mini Layout. The cool thing about this paper, is that its a 12x12 paper that is double sided. It is one solid color in the front and in the back it has 9 different colored squares. I know from my picture you can't see the different colored squares but this paper is pretty cool, especially if you use it for what it was designed (To be used with your diecut machines to get different cuts without having to unload and reload your mats).

I have a lot of pictures of my boyfriend and me that I haven't yet scrapbooked. So I decided to take this opportunity and use some of those pictures. In my layout there was a combination of pictures when we first started going out, (almost 7 years ago) to the present day.

The stamp set is from Peachy Keen's January 2012 Monthly release. The rhinestones are from Michael's. The Picture frame is My Creative Time's  "Just Simply Live" stamp set. 
A sticker from my collection, sorry don't know where it came from.

Thats my Baby and Me:) Thats what I call him:)lol

This sentiment is from My Creative Time's Cherish This Moment Stamp Set. A must have stamp set for journaling in scrapbook layouts:)

This is our Anniversary date:)
For the frame, and the calendar I used My Creative Time's  XL Label Die and Whimsical Calendar Days. 

The stamp set I used for the sentiment in this picture is from My Creative Time's You had me at Chocolate stamp set. The flower, brad and beads are from my stash but the cute little paper curlies are made from the edge of the Paper Layerz. This is the edge we always cut off and throw away because it has the manufactures name, and the name of the paper. I used the other side of the paper and didn't mind some letters showing through. I actually liked that it shows the letters:)lol.

The sentiment and the arrow are from My Creative Time's Just Simply Live stamp set. 

The heart is from My Creative Times 100% Sweetness and the Memories sentiment is from the Cherish the Moment stamp set. 

I used Fiskars Lace corner punch and the Die and the sentiment is from My Creative Time's Just Simply Live stamp set.

I will be entering my layout in Cropped Event Challenge #2

Ok fellow crafters, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and for taking the time to leave me a comment:) 

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!
