Cricut Circle January Monthly Challenge: The Year in Review

The Challenge: Create a scrapbook page or mini album reviewing the year 2011. What was memorable about the year overall? Or maybe you want to summarize the events that happened each month in your life. Whatever your approace, use your Cricut machines to tell your 2011 story.
Rules and Guidelines: Circle Blog Challenges are open to Cricut Circle Members only. Your project must be newly created for this challenge and include atleast 2 Cricut Image Cuts. You must submit a project to be entered into the Challenge Prize Drawing.

It's been a little while since I've been able to participate in a Circle challenge and what better way to jump back in than with this challenge.  The best way to describe 2011 is bitter sweet.  I finally got to see the Harlem Globe Trotters; we vacationed in Southern California; lost Kodiak our beloved furbaby, adopted Casey a few months later; spent a lot of time this year with family; we upgraded to an RV; Travis and Kara purchased their first home; I was diagnosed with breast cancer; we went to Hawaii; and Russ' parents celebrated their 50th anniversary.  I created this collage layout highlighting our year.

All cricut cuts were cut at 1 inch.  Cricut cartridges used:  Blackletter - 50th; Give a Hoot - Nest; Kate's ABC's - House; Mickey & Friends - Mickey ears; Paper Pups - Paw; Pink Journey - Ribbon; Winter Lace - Snowflake
