Here is my project:

I had made the other side of this layout previously as my project for Connie Can Crop Design team, back in July.

Now I used this cute doll from The Paper Nest Dolls, our monthly sponsor. She is so cute, isn't it?

I used my iPad's cricut app to design this layout, similarly as I did the other side and cut it

in my Explorer. I used the Artbooking Cartridge (CTMH).

I design this project while waiting for my car at the dealer and it took me no time to cut it.

I used for the first time this chalk kit, i bought a while ago and fixed the shalked up doll using hairspray...

I want to add some pictures later, so I did this wonderful trick to momentarily stick all pieces and them I can just go back and peel off the tape backing and add the pictures behinds the grid and the frame...

I can add up to 4 pictures behind the grid or more if I add some smaller picks...

Other materials I used from my stash...

CMTH papers

Both layouts together:

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:
