A Beautiful Day...

with 3Birds! Isn't it always? LOL I just love the bright happy colors in the Straight From The Nest pp pack, so I had to make another LO using them. And of course, no LO is complete without some of the Sticker Nestables!! The circles are my absolute favorite.

And...drumroll....I did get to use my Cricut! For the very first time! As promised ;) I used the Straight From The Nest cartridge and made the leaves on the LO. Aren't they cute? And sooo much cheaper than buying pre-made ones. I didn't really know what I was doing, so I don't think I set the blade to cut deep enough. Which actually turned out even better - I really like how the blade didn't cut all the way through the middle leaf veins part - it would have been something that was supposed to pop out and leave a hole, but I like that it kind of scratched the surface instead to give it more interest. Who's proud of me for using my Cricut for the first time?! :)
