Baptism Layout
Welcome everyone!  Glad you could join me today for this weeks Design Team daily project at Exploring Cricut.

Sorry I have been away for so long. I have been under the weather an unable to get any of my crafting done. But, I'm back!
Today, I am sharing a 12" x 12" layout I made for my daughter for her new baby for her Baptism. I hope you enjoy!
I cut out all of my pieces with my Cricut Expression and started by making my roses. (After I took the photo I fixed the open spaces you can see thru the roses by using some spray inks). I made the frames by using rectangles found on many cartridges. I sized them and then welded them to make a frame. I added a couple swirls I found and welded them into the frame. I then added tiny pink gems to add some bling.
 I cut the crosses from the Ultimate Creative Sampler Cartridge starting at 1.5" and making each one larger by 1/4 of an inch. I inked around the sides to age the crosses. I used pop dots to add dimension to it. Then I added the bling. I made the rose buds from the cartridge Formal Occasion. I just cut the bud and used a couple pop dots to round my bud around. I cut the large corner vines from the CTMH- Art Philosophy Cart. I added a few hearts to the vine. My leaves were cut from the cart Mother's Day Bouquet.
The photo in the top left corner was part of the invite for the baptism that I made for the occasion.
 A photo of her in her dress will be added before it is given to my daughter. I hope you have enjoyed my project today.
