Patches of Pink Design Team Post - Red, White and Blue

Today is my first day participating on the Patches of Pink Design Team! The theme for this week's Link-Up Party is Red, White and Blue. I created this fun layout for a few of my niece's 4th of July photos. This is a standard sized 12"x12" Single Layout featuring one 4"x6" photo mat and two 2.5"x3.5" photo mats. 

I cut this sweet little boy from the "A Child's Year" Cricut cartridge. I've been wanting to use this cut for months and I think it turned out adorably. 

The title was cut from the "Kate's ABCs" cartridge; this is a great, classic font. 

I created this sweet little pinwheel by hand (with a good bit of help from my sister) and added a star-shaped brad to the center. 

I hope ya'll will join us for the Patches of Pink Link-Up Party! Can't wait to see your projects.

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: A Child's Year and Kate's ABCs
American Girl Crafts Star Border Punch
Paper: DCWV - Nantucket and Recollections cardstock

Pretty. I always have trouble coordinating pattern papers. You have a good eye for that.

First I'm your newest follower...and, I'm here from the Link-Up Party.... I love this layout, it's adorable and that pinwheel is just too cute. I have yet to try one of these but I'm going to because it's just so cute and such a huge part of everyone's childhood... I have to get me the Kates ABC's cartridge I love the look of the lettering.
You did a fantastic job, Thanks for sharing.

I love this many details like the star border punch and the star brad on the pinwheel really make this special. I also love how you offset every other letter in the title. Awesome!
