This is What Cute looks Like

This layout is thanks to inspiration from Yvonne at Cricut FANatics Her page is adorable & I love the title. Like Yvonne, I also did the layout for our grandson. :)

One thing I don't seem to have in my paper stash is plaid paper. How can that be? LOL! The pattern papers for this page are an older line from BasicGrey, Marrakech. 

I used a We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punch, Classic Wreath, to create the large mat. I cut my paper to 11" square before punching. I copied the design created by hand to make the slightly larger red mat behind.

Cricut Cartridges used:

Mickey Font: Title was all cut at 1" except "CUTE" was cut at 1 1/4" & shadowed.

Animal Kingdom: Giraffe cut at 6"

I used Black Diamond Stickles on the title words & just added some blue crystal bling to "cute" before using foam tape to attach it to the page. Also used Distress Stickles (Brushed Corduroy & Antique Linen) on the giraffe. Of course I used googly eyes on him too just because I love googly eyes! :) Used foam tape to attach the giraffe as well.
