Creative Scrapbook Layout: "1st Dollhouse"

You may be asking yourself, "Where did she find this super cute dollhouse cut?"  You may even be thinking, "Gee, doesn't Sugar and Spice have a dollhouse cut similar to that one?  But that couldn't be a cut from Sugar and's not August, yet." is a dollhouse from the Sugar and Spice Cricut cartridge.  I thought about not really mentioning the new cartridge and just skimming over the fact that I totally  broke down over the weekend and went searching for Sugar and Spice and B is for Boy.  I didn't find B is for Boy, but it's only a matter of time - I think I have a problem.  :)  If you are new to the blog...I had sort of, kind of made a promise to not buy any new cartridges until my birthday in August and I failed.  Oh well...better luck next time.

LOL! The last 3 carts I bought were after I promised not to buy any more for a while!! So much for willpower! ;)

Adorable layout! I love the bright colors you used. I am trying to get a layout done today but my husband is home so we'll see how much I get done. :)

LOL! I wasn't going to buy any of the Cricut Lites. I decided they were to expensive for the amount of cuts you get. Yeah.... that lasted until I saw them in my Wal-mart. I have 6 of them now. :) The B is for Boy and Sugar and Spice carts are by far my favorites.

Super cute layout!
