A CRICUT CRAFTING POST! Octonauts Birthday Banner!!!

I know some of you only followed my blog because I used to actually create stuff... well..  I've done some crafting!  My youngest son is obsessed with Octonauts and guess what you can't get birthday supplies here in the US!  (You can only get some of the toys too but that is another post!!!)   So I made a banner:

I used Mini Monograms for all the circles and Cuttin' Up for the font.  I tied the circles together with ribbon to allow for movement.  For the octonauts I just printed and cut them out.  It is really hard to see but I used dimensionals on all the white scallops to add some depth.

And just because here is the cake:

I am no cake artist at all!  I ordered the middle design from ebay - and it is printed on edible icing paper with edible inks.  Then I made a 2 layer half sheet cake.  Homemade icing (maybe I'll share my recipe someday...)  and I just added the blue around for something extra.
