Strawberries!  Yep, that's the challenge over at Cut It Up this time!  Use a die cut and a strawberry on your project!

Our challenge is sponsored by One Happy Cut;  you'll want to check out the great prize they are offering!

My inspiration of a strawberry came from the challenge as well as the strawberries all over this little sleeper Cass had on the other day!  I saw those berries and knew just what I wanted to do with this layout!

I had so much fun using new papers from CTMH for this LO.  I combined the new Florence with the May promotional paper Happy with papers from Charlotte, Penelope and Kaleidoscope.  This really fun background and header are from Happy.  I love this collection of papers; it is so cute!  (You can read more about it Here.)

My Cricut got a workout cutting all these flowers, berries, and the cupcake!  I also cut the frame and made some alterations on it.  I glued it down with dimension by pushing up parts of it.

Here is the die list:

Strawberries:  Preserves
Flowers:  CTMH Artiste
Cupcake:  CTMH Art Philosophy
Strawberry on cupcake:  Country Life
Frame:  CTMH Artbooking
Title:  CTMH Artbooking

Material List:

My little berry is off to:
