Heart shaped Mini Album

Today is Scrapbook Thursday over on Holidays with the Cricut, and I came up with this mini album, cut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 6"

















As I said in the video, this is a bit late for Valentines day, but would make a super little wedding or anniversary card filled with photos of the happy couple, so if anybody can use it, leave your name at the end of this post, and I will pull a name out of the hat on saturday morning, be sure to leave enough information for me to identify you. I will throw in a few more goodies for you as well if you win.
I bought the Serenade cartridge online from CardCraft UK - marvellous service, I haven't used them before and would recommend them, I think I bought the last one though, as it seems to be off the site now. I see they sell pinflair glue as well, so with free shipping I will be popping back there....
This week is going by so fast, but, boy, is doing the posts on two blogs exhausting! Off to have a lie down in a darkened room now.............
See you tomorrow xx

I love this idea so many possibilities for use and my daughter just saw it over my shoulder and has said she would love one to record each of her and her partners years together so another idea.
