Vacation.. design team layout

Now that the 4th of July has come and gone- we can get back to some scrapping- I was out of town in Upper Michigan for my traditonal week vacation with family/friends and had a great time- as I always do. So here is my design team layout for the sketch over at Sketch Along Tuesdays-Frosted Designs.
We have a wonderful sketch designed by Karin to work with and here it is- using circles- I love to work with circles and so I did- but a bit different in this take. I used my Cricut for all the cuts with images to tell a story about the photo for my son's scrapbook-while we were visiting Universal Studios in 2005.
Cartridge used and my  Expression Cricut & Gypsy- Going Places- which had alot of cool ones to choose from- this was the first time I used this cartridge and I see myself using it more often in the future with all my vacation photos. I started off with a graph pattern paper by Karen Foster and inked the edges in blue-stamped some travel sayings from Scrappy Cat stamps, several colors of cardstock for all the cuts, Rub-ons for the title from Swatch Book and some other misc rub-ons scattered on the page. OOOPS...I forgot to journal on the page -underneath the picture on the half circle in white- sorry- I will have to go get that page out and do that before I forget. SO BE SURE TO LINK UP YOUR TAKE ON THIS SKETCH OVER AT SKETCH ALONG TUESDAY  at FROSTED DESIGNS-BY JULY 25TH TO BE ENTERED IN TO WIN A FABULOUS PRIZE FROM OUR SPONSOR.
