Miss Sassy Pants

This layout was done for Practical Scrappers.  The challenge for the week was using brads.
I cut the frame using my Cricut Expression and the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.  I cut the letters using the All Mixed Up cartridge.  I then used purple ribbon to make the words stand out. 
I used orange and copper brads around the inside of the picture frame.

I also used the ribbon and a brad to add a little flare to the corner.

Micaiah's True Love

This picture was taken of Micaiah in the petting zoo at our county fair. 
I used Daisy D's paper, I love the weathered appearance of it.  The branch and blossoms were cut using the Serenade Cartridge and my Cricut Expression.  The letters were cut using my Alphalicious Cartridge. 

I added chocolate brown brads to the center of each flower to add some dimension.

The picture was matted using color core card stock.  I added texture by using my Cuttlebug and the Paisley folder.  I finished the look by running some sand paper over the pattern.
