First Day of Kindergarten Layout

Hey everyone!  I wanted to share my latest layout and video I finished.  I've been working on some "Back to School" theme layouts for my kids.  I've seen so many great ideas on Pinterest!  I'm going to enter this one in the Back to School challenge going on over at Exploring Cricut.
I tried to do something a little different from what I normally do on titles by making a banner and mixing the fonts.  I think it came out cute.
 The banner is from Birthday Bash.  Isn't it cute?
Check out my video:

Now I know in the video, I said I wouldn't cut the pattern paper on my cricut, but I gave it a try on another layout afterwards, and it cut great with blade at 3 and pressure at medium.
Banner-Birthday Bash
"Day"-Gypsy Font
"of"-Lyrical Letters
"Kindergarten"-Cuttin up
Pencil-Simply Charmed
Elegant Edges for green mat
Recollections Paper
