This was a super fun layout to make. I decided to go big and bold with my cartoonish representation of the photos. I mixed a bunch of patterns to create the grass and then cut a big cat to jump through it all. The grass is cut from two different shapes on the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I mirrored them and also cut them into pieces to make it feel thicker and random.
