For my project I used the

I created this:

Page 2

Using 2 images from the stamp Set "Beary Special" I created a 2 page layout for my great grandson, Barry Matthew  who will be arriving May 14, 2016.  The title Beary Cute is appropriate as his nickname, throughout this pregnancy, has been Bear!

The frame file is from another cut file by Creative Kuts along with hearts.  I colored the Bears with my new Prisma Color pencils - I like the way the bear on page 2 came out, but page 1's Bear - not too happy with the results.

On the first page I sponged the design onto the 12x12 cardstock, and than on page 2 I sprayed it using Distressed Ink Stain.  I used my Fiskar paper punch to create the edge on the border; and I am trying to use up my Washi tape (don't like the tape - does not adhere like I expect it to...I end up using scor-tape under the Washi tape.)

I printed and cut the Bears with my Explore and Cricut Design Space along with the hearts, and shadows.
