Magical Memories layout

So awhile back I learned a cute little trick for "designing" your own pattern paper on the Imagine. I can't remember who exactly came up with this concept but it originated when the Cricut Everyday cart came out and people wanted "Cricut Circle" paper. Someone got to work and figured out that if you autofill an image to any size paper, voila, you can make your own pattern paper. EASY! And if you want every other color changed, all you have to do is make the first image on color, and add the same second image with a different color THEN press autofill and there you go. :)

So today after dealing with a VERY cranky 19 month old (she's teething) and my husband being away for training I finally sat down to make an 8x8 page for my son Jacob's Shadowbox. I have 3 shadowboxes that Chris (my husband) helped me etch with each of our kid's names and I just add a scrapbook layout to them. So I try to periodically change them the older they get, or by season, whatever but after the headaches I have dealt with this past week I just was not in the mood to make something extravagant. I cut down a red 8x8 piece of cardstock, black 7.75x7.75 and my pattern paper at 7.5x7.5. Then I made a little border, added some acrylic "buttons" and of course, for the title used Emma's Fun in the Sun stamp set. :) Simple and now I can go back and finish watching my all time fave show, 48 hours. =)
