Round and Round and Round it goes...

So, Patty stopped by today to get some input on cutting her daughter's wedding pic into a circle for the paper she had chosen. My Cricut was ready and up for the task! We placed the picture on the mat, using a piece of card stock to brayer it down so it wouldn't slide. We moved the blade housing to the upper center of the 8.5x11 print and cut the portrait in a 7.5" circle, to accommodate the heads of the tall Groom and his not so tall Bride. Then, we cut an 8" circle from black textured Bazzill for the mat.
et voila!!!...
