Living in the Southwest, this cartridge and I are a perfect fit. I have tons of desert pics to scrap. This is my first two page layout. Why are my pics so hard to post here? It really ruins the look of your project, all of the pictures are well within the necessary boundries but for some reason I just cannot get an entire picture of a project to upload, I have to do it a half at a time.

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using a 12 x 24 mat, cut the desert scene from the Southwest cartridge at 10", turn to fit on page then stretch the edges to within an inch of the edge of the mat on the top and bottom, keeping the center of your cut on the 12" line. Cut desert shift the same way. I cut the bigger cactus off, I traced the smaller cactus onto glitter cardstock and cut by hand. Adhere the cuts to two 12 x 12 pieces of cardstock.
Cut Jousha Trees and Jousha Tree shift, I did mine at 4 and 3.5". Cut a variety of desert animals and a prickly pear cacuts, I used various sizes, ranging from 1.25" to 2.5". Attach googly eyes where needed. I used black pearls on the rattle snake and while pearls on the prickley pear. Cut your sun, attach all cuts and photos.
Cut font and font shadow at 1.25", I centered mine. Adhere layers together then adhere to project.
