Friends Turtle Layout

Good morning Cricutlicious Friends,
Here is a project I created for the Simply Scrapping Crafts Cricut Challenge. Our challenge was to use some of the feature keys on our Cricut Machines.

Here is a view of the entire page. The DCWV background paper was perfect. It is from the DCWV Grade school stack. The little flies, frogs and stitching are all already on the paer and the little frogs are glittered.

Here is a close up of the little Turtle. I used the Create A Critter Cartridge to piece this turtle together. It is my own version of a turtle.
