CW Bubbilicious Buttons and Brads

Hope you are having a fun and sunny Summer.  This week at Cooking with Cricut the challenge is to use Buttons or Brads on your layout.  I decided to use this adorable bear blowing bubbles from Melin at Paper Crafting World.  Isn't this little bear just the cutest?  You can also find a cute little boy bear at PCW.  
  Well let me just say this layout actually wasn't at all what I planned, but I am happy with the way it came out.  I wasn't paying attention to the size I was cutting my bear pieces so they barely fit on the 12 x 12 page.  I put them together and then came up with the idea of adding the picture of my granddaughter Katie blowing bubbles in the little bears lap.  I used the bubbles from the file as well as large blue buttons.  The title was cut from Plantin Schoolbook Roly Poly font at 2.35 inches.  
For the bubbles I also added some Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents to give them sheen.  there is also white gel pen on the letters.  I also added Googly eyes to the bear.  
Here are more pics of Katie blowing bubbles and playing in her water bucket.  
One big cute teddy bear and one little happy girl
I hope you loved my layout.  I would love for you to leave a comment.  
Remember you have until next Tuesday to enter the Buttons and Brads challenge at Cooking with Cricut.  I can't wait to see your amazing projects.  Happy Craftin!
