'Magic' and Cricut Lite Carousel

Tuesday, one day before the new CTMH idea book goes live on line and I have another 2 page layout from the new Magic book-this is called Levitate and is on pages 40 and 41.  I made a few small changes to make it my own!
This one was super easy and you could make it with scraps--I added solid card stock in orange and yellow to show you where the pictures are supposed to go.  On the left side there is one 5x7 and one 
5x3 1/2 photos, the right side has two 5x7.  
I used the Dimensional Elements Stars and just tapped them in my orange and goldrush ink pads--i then added some holographic embossing powder to add some sparkle.  
The 'MAGIC' in this layout is adding a spinning element on the out side of your page protector.  I used the Dimensional Elements Stars again, my stampin foil for a look to match the paper; I used a fine brush to stipple the stars once the powder was applied.  Once I had the foil on I punched a hole using my big bite and added a brad--the brad should go thought the page protector, the stars, and the layout.  I did not use a page protector here because of the flair I was getting in photos.
Here is the second spinner--one on the right and one on the left!  BALANCE! 
For the title I used the name of the place where my best friend had his birthday last year--cut both layers using the Cricut Lite Carousel cartridge--I do HIGHLY recommend that you cut these letters at 2" or larger as the layer is tough due to the thin edges.  I sent them through the xyron sticker maker face down and added clear micro beads.  I am going to add a small bit of info on the solid blue block--just the facts--date, time, address, etc.  I have some work ahead of me--I have been working on this book for a year and his birthday is next week--guess I could get last years party in a book before this years happens--LOL. 
I used 1) CTMH Magic Book--release date is Sept 1!  Item 9034 
2)You Rock Level 2 Paper Pack  Item X7122B
3) Dimensional Elements Stare Item Z1312
Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!
