Exploring Cricut Daily Project - Gone With The Breeze

Hello! I'm so glad you stopped by because it is my turn to share a project for Exploring Cricut. I decided to keep with the spring theme and do a 2 page layout from recent kite flying earlier this month. It was a beautiful breezy day and my daughter really enjoyed herself. She was very intent on her flying and was making the funniest faces.

So, on with the project. Usually for kite flying I choose cuts that are kites; but I wanted to use something equally as fun in a breeze - hence - the pinwheel. I found these adorable ones on A Child's Year that luckily had a layer too.  The papers I chose were so busy that I opted to not do mats behind my pictures.

Using my Gypsy, I welded the word "spring" into the tag and then cut. I just placed a scrap of pink paper behind the word. 

This was the bird that was cut out from the tag. You can see the glitter a little better on this picture.
