Kids, Kuts, and Kurls!

Hello everyone  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day this past weekend.  
This week for Sweet Sassy Diva Design Team we were challenged to use three or more Cricut carts on our project.  I decided to work on a layout of my oldest granddaughter getting her first haircut.  
The paper I used is from Mambi and was purchased at Joanns.  
I wanted to make a bright cheerful layout and use the red in Katie's shirt. 
The pictures were taken in February when Katie was 25 months old.  
As most of you know who have seen my layouts before, Katie has the most gorgeous curly hair which runs in our family.  Everywhere we go people want to touch her hair but as you can imagine it gets quite tangled at times.  
My friend Liz is a beautician so we asked her to do the honors.  We weren't certain how she would react but she sat on Mom's lap eating her goldfish crackers and was fine through the whole process.  
The title Kids, Kuts, and Kurls I found in the awesome book Inspiration Station by Betsy Flot.  
This is an excellent book if you make a lot of layouts.  
I used the Plantin Schoolbook Roly Poly font cut at 1.5 inches and glued to 2 1/2 inch strips of yellow polka dot paper.  
The hair dryer comes from the Paisley cart page 59 cut at 5 inches. 
The comb and brush from the Slumber Party cart cut at 5 inches.
I added a few doodles to the cuts using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  
I hope you enjoyed my layout and will come back this week to see what the other Design Team members create with their Cricut carts.  Happy craftin!  Suzanne
