I Love Sprinkles!

I LOVE the brand new Smiley Cards cartridge in the latest Gypsy download!  If you haven't received this download for your Gypsy yet, I hope you are able to get it soon!  The minute that I saw the donut on this cartridge - I knew that I wanted to use it for a scrapbook layout.  My little one LOVES sprinkles on her donuts.  She doesn't get them very often, but when she does she gets to go with her daddy.  When she gets bigger, I know she'll want to remember their special outing!  This layout is more simple than normal for me, but it is soo bright and cheerful - I think it's perfect the way it is!

Quick Tip: When I cut Bazill, I use these settings on my Expression and I rarely run into any problems:

Blade - 5
Speed - 3
Pressure - 4

Materials Used:

Have a great evening!  I designed quite a few projects in my Gypsy using Smiley Cards, so I think that may be the theme this week! :)
