I have used my cricut alot for this one too. Both George & Basic Shapes and Accent Essentials. I have used Opposites Attract for the title. I have included a hidden journalling tag behind the photo as well. The Ever Blooming range is available from the shop.
Thanks for looking:)
I have used Bazzill Bling (Lip Gloss, and Glass Slipper) and linen textured Bazzill cardstock (Hilary and Lakeshore) for the base cardstock colours. Plus a few added embellishments from my own stash, which I have glammed up with some coloured glitter accent.
The costings for my Bike Buddies layout was
2 x Bazzill cardstock $1.98
2 x Fancy Pants papers $3.60
1 sheet Maya Road chipboard $1.50
Ric Rac $1
American Crafts Thickers under $1 (for 4 letters)
So total was around $9.00
I cut the flowers and word 'buddies' out of patterned paper scraps which is a great way to keep the cost down a bit. There is a thread on the forum for money saving ideas for your layouts so make sure you check it out and let us know your ideas aswell.

Absolutely great value at just $47-90 including shipping, But be quick, as there is limited supply.
You will need to keep an eye out for the card/BTP kits that are being launched in October.
This first one is a layout I have completed using KaiserCRAFT Rough & Tough range of papers, along with a few 'extras'. It is about life long friendship.
A couple of cards, which I have really been into lately. Again inspiraed by Melissa Philips. I just love her work. Lots of layers, and glitter!!. Oh how I love glitter. The first card I have made I have gived my Cricut a workout and cut some flowers out of transparency. Also used it to cut the swirls and flower. I have used Inque Boutique Stamp from the 'Birthday' set.
You can find their lovely stamp sets here http://retailer.inqueboutique.com/product/?id=454
The second one I have used the KaiserCRAFT clear stamp (Circles) to make this card, along with just some scraps, calico, and the bird is hand cut and glittered.
This last one is of just a simple exploding box and matching card, for my Grandmother who has a birthday this weekend. I have used the Two Scoops paper for this as well as Bazzill Blossom (4.5" and 2.75") plus my own stash again. The butterfly is again handcut and layered on top of some Green Tara flowers.
It will nearly be time to get some tea so will leave you with this quote.
Cherish your family. For they are your treasure. A storehouse of riches. Wealth beyond measure.

A short and sweet post today
This card has been inspired by Melissa Phillips, she make the most fantastic cards, you can check out her work here http://lilybeanpaperie.typepad.com/
The colours in this photo finally got me round to using some of the Boxer range of papers. I think that they are just the right colour combo for this layout.
