 My project is ...

This double page layout using the "It's Your Day" Stamp set and the "Dottie for You" paper pack. I also used the butterfly cutout from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686), pg. 41 in different sizes. The layout came right out of our new How To Book: Make It From Your Heart- Volume 1 (9035) pg. 4.
