Circut Love

I wanted to share a Cricut creation I made for the contest going on over at Two Peas. I punched these circles out of My Mind's Eye paper and layered them along the bottom and once I was done with that, I thought...how can I make a title that will

1.) be quick and easy and
2.) light enough to layer over these circles.

Aha!


yes, my Cricut. I have to admit, I go to my Cricut for quick and easy titles and inspiration and that is why I love it.


After cutting the titles with my Jubilee Cartridge, I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and added a button....voile! title done.

Lovin' all the circles!!! Cool LO!

So now I have the answer to a question I was going to ask last week when we kept getting cut off. I was wondering if you have a Cricut...NOW I know! LOL! I keep debating whether or not to purchase one. Since I just bought rotors for my car and I'm staring at a few medical bills, I decided to wait on that one. I just went shopping at Serendipity instead! LMAO!

Have a great weekend! xoxo L
