#162 Carousel - 60th Birthday Layout

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great weekend!

The challenge for the month of May on the Cricut Circle Blog was to create a layout about a milestone in somebody's life.  We needed to use 2 Cricut image cuts and 2 Cricut font cuts.

The cartridges / cuts I used are:
Carousel - "60" cut at 2"
Birthday Cakes - "Happy Birthday" phrase cut at 2.25", "DAD" cut at 1.15" and welded to the phrase.
Boys will be Boys - Tractor and layers cut at 2.5"
Scalloped border - Ribbons and Rosettes cut at 1"
Background shape (behind title) - Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cut at 3.5" and 3.75"

By the way, this layout is of my father's 60th birthday when I made him a birthday cake using my Cricut Cake machine - such a fun tool!  The cake had a barn and tractor on top and different animals around the edge.

The patterned paper I chose for this layout is from the Basic Grey Obscure collection - which I've had for a loooooong time!

Hope you like it!
