U R Unique

This is my first project as a Creative Twist DT member...It was lots of fun to create. The picture is of some co workers on Dr. Seuss's bday. I love the quote...it is so true. The challenge was to create something that was inspired by a book...so I chose The Cat In The Hat by Dr. Seuss. I used lots of cricut cuts, some buttons, twine, ribbon, pearl paint, a little bling and stickles.The quote is computer generated. The actual book images and the faces for Thing 1 and Thing 2 were downloaded and printed on card stock and then cut out. I used my center cut button on my cricut to cut the scallop circle around the pic and then cut additional circles in 1/4 inch increments for the mat. Lots of pop dots to add some dimension.
