Cooking with Cricut- Welcome Spring challenge

It's time for the Cooking with Cricut challenge and Design Team post.  This week the challenge is Welcome Spring and we were asked to use a song for our inspiration.  I thought of several ideas for songs using Sun etc.  and then I thought wait a minute what does Spring mean where I live- Strawberry Season.  The fields in our county are loaded with berries right now as we have had  unusually warm winter weather.  Also in May we have a Strawberry Festival for two days in the next city over.  
Here is my completed layout using The Beatles song " Strawberry Fields Forever."
The cute little Strawberry shortcake bears are from Paper Craftin World and designed by Melin. 
The strawberries are from the Cricut Cartridge Indie Art cut at 4.5 inches 
and the title "Strawberry Fields Forever" is cut from Printing Press at 2 inches. 
I used white gel pen for stitching, chalked the edges, used a white Pearl Pen on the whip cream and red Stickles on the top strawberry. I also used a Martha Stewart Punch.
Check out the amazing Digital Stamps and Cutting Files at 
Paper Crafting World. com. Melin has added some new files that are really cute.  
Pleas join us for the Cooking with Cricut challenge this week and help us "Welcome Spring" with a song as inspiration.  Then link it up to Cooking with Cricut so we can see what you create.  Happy Craftin!
