Cooking with Cricut # 83: Bling it On!

Hello friends! It is time for another Cooking with Cricut challenge- this week we want you to bling it up! This week I created a fun layout of my beautiful niece Evie when she was a baby. I love her cute little floral dress, and had a fun time finding coordinating papers!

My sketch was inspired by the April sketch over at Artful Delight. I replaced the circle shape with a slew of fun brads (my BLING). I cut a circle at 8" from George and Basic Shapes and used it as a template to place my brads. I scattered them a bit, so it's not a perfect circle. The cute heart font in the title is from Rock Princess.
Here is a close up of some of those brads- I used several different manufacturers.
I added a pre-made rosette embellishment and done! Other than putting in all those brads this layout was really quick and easy! I hope you enjoyed it and will come join us with your own bling-y projects! Thanks for coming by!
