1st Exploring Cricut Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the very 1st Exploring Cricut Challenge!! Our first challenge is using the Art Philosophy cartridge. We were to use "square 3" on page 43 of the handbook, along with any 2 flowers on the cartridge. I knew EXACTLY what pictures and paper I wanted to use when I saw these cuts! I even ended up making 2 different layouts because I liked them so much.

This first layout I really challenged myself and only used 1 photo! I NEVER do this. I always have so many photos I want to scrap, so this was hard for me! I have never used an enlarged photo, in fact I usually crop them down! This is a 5x7 print, but it is one of my favorite photos, so I really wanted to make it stand out.
The square was cut at fit to page
The flowers are "flower 5" and "flower 6" p.29 cut at 2", 2.25", and 2.5", with the layers

 I knew these flowers, along with my background paper, were perfect for these cute pictures of my nephew, and ring bearer. Isn't he the cutest?!?!

Hope you enjoyed the first Exploring Cricut Challenge! We can't wait to see your submissions, so once you've finished checking out everyone's projects get creating!
