Congratulations to Dr. Rachel Ray!

Rachel and my daughter were roommates in college ... Rachel went on to Vet School and she received her degree last Friday. Very exciting! My daughter asked me to make this for her. All the animals were cut at 1.5" using 'Create a Critter'. I was a little worried about cutting them that small, but it all worked out ... I wouldn't, however, go much smaller. I used my Gypsy to lay this all out and was able to get everything except the sentiment on one mat so, once I got all the paper in place, the cutting was a breeze.

Here are the details:
Size - 5.25" x 5.25"
Papers - Martha Stewart 'Playful Blue' stack for the mats, the animals were all cut using scraps (yeah!)
Cricut - Create a Critter, Storybook (mats) and Plantin Schoolbook (font)
Extras - Stickles, a little ribbon and lots of pop dots

This just the cutest thing I have ever seen! I have a square scalloped punch about that size maybe I could do something like that for a baby card. Just darling Jo and congrats to your daughter's friend. My little girl wants to be a vet.

That is so cool. I will definitely have to use the layout design and make something of my own. My Mother-in-law loves her garden so I think I will use the preserves Cricut® cartridge to make something similar. Thank you so much for sharing!
