Baby Boy frames (by request)

Nellie from the Cricut message board contacted me because she was having difficulties adapting one of my baby bug frames to use for her great-grandsons (one already here and one due very soon - Congratulations, Nellie!). She told me she wanted the word "sweet" at the bottom, stars and moon in the corners, the New Arrival train at the top and a monkey and a giraffe on the sides.

I tried one and sent her the file - I had just used Animal Kingdom for something else so that cartridge was the one that came to mind for the giraffe and monkey. I sent it to her and she mentioned she had been trying to use the ones on ZooBalloo - I looked and they were much "cuter" so I did another version that way.

I really like the tail on the ZooBalloo monkey!

The "smoke" from the train looks cute going up through the top border of the frame but if you use a background filler (from my post a few days ago) you will need to cut an extra bit from the waste and place behind the hole as pictured below.

Here is a photo of these frames without the background filler.

Nellie was happy with the result and I am sharing it in case any of you need some baby frames.

Have fun with these!
