Look at the super easy and fast layout quickly done with CTMH's Cricut Artbooking Key! I love how easy everything is resized on Artbooking for you automatically. No craft math!!!!! All we had to do was cut everything to 11" (which is the size of the lace overlay) and everything is autosized for us. Dana Simone-Kurtz made this cute page kit for me, and it was perfect for the picture of the kids in the pool (or the pool steps, that's as close as Kennedy gets)!
Check out the TITLE. That effect is done by cutting the title in one color cardstock then with two other colors sponge daubing straight sections one shade to the next, from darkest to lightest. I recommend working actually from light to dark because you can always go darker, but you can't go back :)
