Bug Eyes layout

Today I am sharing a layout I made with you.  This layout fits the requirements of the Recipe Challenge on the Cricut Circle blog.

This was when my daughter and a friend went to a butterfly garden.  They had a ball with these bug eye glasses!  My daughter is the lower picture and I just love her little toothy smile!

The recipe was:
At least three Cricut cuts: Create a Critter bug at 2" and 3", Birthday Bash for "bug eyes" at 0.5", and George for the rectangle journaling box just in case the two bugs only count as one :)
Three patterned papers: all American Girl stack - there is a separate pattern paper under the journaling block - a little hard to see here
A butterfly, bird, or bug - from Create a Critter
Machine, Pen, or Hand-stitching - This was an adventure!  I think I need to get some lighter thread for it to work well in my sewing machine...
The color yellow - matting and in the bugs

I hope you've enjoyed this layout as much as I do!
