Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge Entry

I wanted my children to have a crafty journal kind of like a "Smash Book" to use to keep up both their writing skills over summer vacation, but also to have them create and be proud of their own "memory book" of their summer adventures! 

I purchased these journal books at Michael's on clearance for $1 in their Paula Dean/Bargain gift area.  The pictures are before and after, since I altered them with papers I had left over from my mother's Europe Trip book.



I used the Storybook Font for the Letters for the kids' names, on Kyle's I used Office Help for the circle embellishments, and on Kailey's I used Office Help for the "Summer" embellishment.  The interiors of the books the kids are working on as we speak, using various cartridges (mainly the calendar cart) to add embellishments to the interior.
