Turtle layout

Another  that was used in a Baby girl book.  I just love this bright layout.  I have used 3 different turtles in this layout, 2 dies cuts and one stamped image. 
Paper on hand was used.  All photo mats are 5 1/4 x 4 inches and embossed with a plastic grid.  I just love how it gives it a quilted look.
The turtle die cuts are from Quickutz and Cuttle Kids. 
Lifestyle Crafts Oval Bliss was used for the journal spot and for the turtle stamp.
The Turtle stamp is from Whipper Snapper and both images were colored with Copics.
Copics used:

YR65, Y38, Y13, Y15
V12, V15

Simple Baby Layout

The Create a Critter Cartridge is a fun cartridge for putting together animals.  You layer the different animal, so for most part you do not have to work with really tiny pieces.  This also makes for a slightly thicker animal on your layout so it gives it some extra dimension. 
Cricut Create-a-Critter used to cut the animal embellishments.
Beaver cut at 3 inches
Turtle cut at 1 1/2 inches
Snail cut at 1 1/2 inches
Top borders 2 x 12 inches
Zig Zag accents cut with a Sizzix die.
Bottom borders cut at 3 x 12 inches.
I forgot to write down the photo mat sizes. They are all Colonail white and pink.
Journal spot from Spellbinders Back to basics tabs.
