Ok, I am seriously trying to love my Cricut. I get frustrated sometimes with adjusting the speed, pressure and blade settings. But for this layout, I got it right - finally! I still need to add journal strips below the large photo but wanted to post this since I was so relieved to finally get a clean cut (spoiled by my Silhouette that cuts like buttah I guess). The cut is from the Sports Mania Cartridge.
Here is a closeup of the Swoosh element:
Thanks for looking!!
