This is my layout for this month, This was his first Popsicle at the zoo and of course they are massive, i took out my camera and he just started to make the funnest poses. I had some fun with this layout, and the funny thing is the color design coordinated perfectly with the colors of his Kadoozie Popsicle!

i use the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge with this layout as well as some retired paper scrap (use what ya got, then you can buy more :-) The stitch guide helped me make some fun stitched circles, i dyed the white thread with our reinkers and stamp pads.

Liquid glass is our friend and i used it to adhere the strips of paper to the glittler paper that runs across the whole layout, i quickly found out my ATG does not hold it there. Then i added a few spots of liquid glass dots for embellishments as well as some Aqua dots. With some washi tape and chip board this was done. I pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Just a close up of the title, using retired items (use what ya got!)\

A mix of some fun embellishing, i used a big pin head to make these cute white dots with a white pigment stamp pad, i love CTMH!!
