Future Domestic Goddess-Whimsical Wednesday Reveal

Its reveal day again over Whimsical Wednesdays and this challenge was to make a layout of our own choice, and the theme is : "Some Interactive Fun"  and so, the layout  has to have movement on it.. I actually had a completely different layout design in mind, spent all day Sunday designing it on my Cricut DS and then my computer crashed...Aaaaaaaaaargh!!..so, had to come up with plan #2.. LOL
Almost in sheer panic, I quickly went through my papers and found this cute Domestic Goddess stack by Graphic45 and I knew I had the perfect photo to go with these papers..
   I desided to create a big journaling tag that pulls out from behind the photo matt..
Here is a photo of the tag as it looks pulled out.. I actually journaled on the tag, which is so rare for me.. Not much for journaling since my mind goes blank as soon as I grab the pen..LOL

I used my Cricut Imagine to cut my cricut cuts with since I felt it was easier to use without the DS, having that virtual mat really helps see the size of the cuts before cutting and I never scrap without my DS just for that reason, having the virtual matt..

here are a few close ups:
