Strawberry Shortcake

Good evening everyone!  Well we escaped the snow last night.  Only ended up with 4 inches.  Now I am waiting for the big one which is to start Friday and go through Saturday.  Have heard that we could end with 20+ inches.
Here is a layout I just finished of my daughter 5 years ago eating her favorite, Strawberry Shortcake.  I used the current sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  I also am putting this layout in the current die cut challenge over at Practical Scrappers.  I used my Cricut Machine to cut out the large circle  using the George cartridge and also Street Sign  to cut out the title.

All of the paper on this layout is from Die Cuts With A View Farmers Market pack.    I got adventurous again and used my sewing machine on this layout.  I am beginning to feel more comfortable using it on paper.
I found the cute little signs on the internet.

Cute, cute layout, Debbie! I am always up for strawberry shortcake. Great job using the sketch. Great colors and I just love all your detail. As for the snow, it is so beautiful .. but I'm very glad I'm here in Texas! It has been plenty cold enough to suit me and I'm dreaming of sunshine and green leaves LOL

Wow, this is so amazing! The attention to detail is just spectacular! And I want to eat that shortcake - strawberries are my fav flowers (because they are part of the rose family;))
Thanks for playing with us over at Practical Scrappers!

This is fab! I love this page... that DCWV paper is sweet... I need to be on the look out for that. And the strawberries sign you printed off is just too cool!

I live here in PA and we have about 10" of the white stuff I'd say... it's enough, lol!
