I was given the super fun "Pinwheel Passion " background cutfile to work with for my layout!
I loved this fun cutfile, it is just so whimsical and playful. When waiting for the file to complete, my sweet little eyed 3 year old got happy "pressing buttons" stopping the cut before completion. I let out an exasperated sigh, gently removed the paper, only to decide, that I liked the mistake in front of me, and I would make it work!!

I like how fun the edge cut looked, and knew right away that I wanted to back it with the Studio Calico Brighton Pier star paper.  I wanted to give the cutfile a fun look, and chose to use the Pebbles From me to You paper to cut the pinwheel shapes and place them with pop dots for added dimension.

I chose to add a crate paper photo overlay frames to my photo and embellish it up with all my sequins , floating dots , and wood veneer pop dots from MME. I finished off my title with these super fun glittery Jillibean Soup letters!

I hope you like how I used this fun cutfile and it inspires you to work more with your cameo and check out the rest of the awesome cutfiles in store!
