Close To My Heart Autumn Album Retreat -- Today Is A Good Day Layout

My kids have loved dressing up and pretending they were Super Heroes from the very start.

They have awesome imaginations and play so well together when they are in why can't they get along that good ALL the time??  LOL.

They chatted it over and knew right away that they wanted to be Super Heroes for Halloween in 2012.

They had it narrowed down to Superman / Supergirl 
and Batman / Batgirl.

Morgan made the final decision based on the bright red shiny skirt.  

I'm not gonna lie...the Cricut Artbooking Overlays are AWESOME...but they are time consuming too.

I love the added detail they give to a layout...FUN...FUN...FUN.

Tips & Techniques for This Layout: 
* Use Cricut Craft Room (CCR) to adhere letters together and size them smaller for a longer title
* Use the negative pieces of the overlay to create a border on the journaling tag
* Combine multiple overlays cut into pieces for added dimension
* Layer different colors of cardstock under the overlay to add detail to the background
* Sponge over cork shapes to color them
* Use 3-D foam tape to make photos stand out
