Splash Park Layout

I've been wanting to make a double page layout of these pictures for a long time and decided this was the day to do it. Anytime I need a double page sketch I check out Let's Scrap. Of course they did not disappoint and had an awesome sketch that worked really well for me. Click on the picture and check out all the stuff that is packed into this layout!

Here is the sketch from Let's Scrap. I just love that pocket at the top which made me dig some out of my stash. I also joined the Twofer Tuesday challenge at Paper Issues.

Let me tell you, this layout was fun to make but the headaches with my Silhouette machine - yikes! I just got the cut file for the title and it wanted to double cut every time I traced it. I searched everywhere on the Internet to find the solution which seemed to be turn off the high pass filter. Well that wouldn't let me trace at all. So finally I changed file formats to PNG and that allowed me to trace. But then it wouldn't let me weld! Finally, I just colored in the outline of the word, traced it, and it did the same thing as welding. So I've had no sleep and my daughter is not impressed with the time this has taken - lol. Hopefully, this might help someone as I saw a lot of people asking for help with these issues. If anyone knows what I need to do to fix these problems please feel free to comment!
