Baby Shower Giraffe Layout


Here is the project I did for a couple challenges.
Here is a closeup of the Umbrella Title.
The Umbrellas are from Pooh and Friends
The Lettering is from Songbird
The Flowers are from Forever Young
Here is a close up shot of the Shower title.
The Frames are from Doodletype.
The Lettering is from Simply Sweet
The Flowers are from Forever Young
Okay now for the Giraffe.
I am SO STINKIN' Happy with how he turned out :-)

He was NOT made with Design Studio
He was NOT made with an SVG file or anything like that.
He is STRAIGHT CRICUT ONLY!
YEP, That's right he is all from Cricut. Better yet...
HE is from ONE Cartridge. Oh and
HE IS NOT FROM GEORGE EITHER!

  59. Hi Nannapuddin and all: This is Melin. I wanted to let you know that I added a page to the top left sidebar that has a list of all the carts. I currently have. I didn't think the list of carts used in the posts so far would be construed as the list of carts I have. Sorry about that. I actually do own Walk In My Garden and SYI. So you let me know which guess you would like to keep:-) Thank you (all of you) for your comments! Keep them coming! Share the love! Thanks again! Melin
