With the Jerk of a String~

She had them all.

Oh yeah! I went there. The new Cricut Circle cartridge is out, and there appears to be a lot of hub bub about the word Jerk being on it.

So, I decided to use it on a project. And I think it’s cute!

One of Hartly’s favorite birthday gifts was her bouquet of balloons. She ran and ran around the house with them tightly gripped in her hand trailing behind her.

But the best part was her jerking the string holding them together and watching her squeal with delight as they floated up to the ceiling.

It’s a good thing her Daddy is so tall, because I think he spent an afternoon pulling them off the ceiling.

My layout~

I used the Studio Calico Story Hour kit as the colors played off the colors of the birthday balloons.

My title~

My cuts are from Out of Character for the word jerk cut at 2.5″, Birtday Bash for the pennant layer and Opposites Attract for the word string.

My last two cuts were cut to the size of my scrap paper. I’m still Stretching my Kit and using even the tinest of my scraps. Yippee!

I plan to use this layout for the Circle Weekly Challenge: Birthday Challenge in which you needed to use string on your layout.

And really how can you have a layout about string without string?

I used~
Story Hour kit contents: Echo Park Happy Days Diamonds paper, Style Essentials Yellow Damask, Crate Paper Story Teller Docutment paper and Border Stickers
Making Memories Tiny Alpha Stickers, twine, EP This & That Decorative Brads
