I pulled out these photos several weeks ago to scrapbook, but I couldn't get my Southwest digital cartridge (it has a cowboy hat and boots on it) to work in Cricut Craft Room. Am I the only one who's bummed that Craft Room is going away? I was so sad when I heard it was being discontinued, because I own an Expression and would have to buy a brand new machine if I want to use Design Space. I really love the simplicity of the Expression (put a cartridge in, select, and cut), and am not sure I want to sacrifice that for a cloud based system, especially considering all the traffic on our home network - LOL! Not to mention the mixed reviews I've heard about Design Space. Oh well, I guess I will have to make that decision soon, so if anyone loves their Explore Air and Design Space, feel free to weigh in below in the comments section!
And back to my layout . . . Since I couldn't use my digital cartridge, I cut out a boy and girl figure from Artbooking and colored them to match the photos. The design of the layout is based on the May Blend-a-Sketch challenge from Scrap Our Stash. I used the vertical strips and circle plus two photos from the left page, and then replaced the four paper sections on the right page with three photos and a journaling space. I also used the bracket and added some more vertical strips to tie the two pages together.
