Art Layout

I got two new Cricut Lite cartridges for my birthday...Recess and Playtime.  I know that they aren't exactly "new" cartridges, but they're new to me.  I love all of the little boys and girls on the Cricut Lite carts - they work so well with Peachy Keen Faces, and it's well documented on this blog that I happen to really love Peachy Keen faces.  
I know it's shocking, but I added stitching and doodling to EVERYTHING in this layout.  I'm just trying to, you know, expand my horizons and try something new.  ;)
