Kindergarten Cutie

Isn't she cute? Here's a layout featuring pictures of my youngest daughter, Gwendolen, when I helped her class put together some projects (Cricut, of course) at her school last Halloween. That was a lot of fun AND a lot of work! Hello Kitty is also pretty cute herself. On this layout, I used the Cricut Hello Kitty Font--such a versatile font. The title was cut from a couple of layers of chipboard and cardstock and then embossed using the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder. Kitty was also cut from a couple of layers of chipboard (the shadow) and then put together using cardstock, Stickles, and Making Memories brads. Again, I used the Cuttlebug buttons embossing folder with ink to help achieve a double-colored image. I then cut them out which made the border at the bottom and up the right side of the photo collage--it might be a little hard to see, but it's such a fun technique! Again, I utilized that typewriter for the journaling. If you're interested in this cutfile to see how it's put together, here's the mediafire link--enjoy!: http://www.mediafire.com/?kyiewmyax1z
