Moxie Fab World - The Appearance of Cameos - Challenge

I knew I'd be up for this one since I adore silhouettes and cameos. The fascination started when I moved into my first place and my mom game me a vintage silhouette of hers that I had always admired.
I've been getting ot know my Cricut Create a little better over the past couple weeks and my favorite cartridge is A Child's Story. It's full of cameos and silhouette images.
The apple and girl's head are 2 separate cuts so you can mix and match your papers. Here's a trick for adhering the 2 images together. Cut a 1 3/4" circle of CS and adhere the head to that. Then add thin scor tape onto the CS surrounding the head and adhere that to the backside of the cut out apple.
All the patterned paper is October Afternoon, sentiment and text impression plate are Papertrey Ink.

                                      Here are sillhouettes we had cut at Disneyland in 2005.

And here is one of Peyton cut this past December.
                                           Here is part of my silhouette collection:

So cute and how perfect for a teacher. Reminds me of many years ago having our silhouettes traced in school.
