Challenge Me Monday #121

Hello Everyone,

Well it is Monday already and time for another Challenge Me Monday over at the FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE BLOG. Today we have a really fun challenge, Wedding Bliss. Make a project for a special couple (Wedding, Anniversary). I made a project for a shower. I took a paint can and decorated it. I made this for a friend that is giving the shower. She is going to fill it with a cute Newlywed poem that was found on the internet. Example ( A lollipop - to help you lick your problems no matter how many there may be. A rubber band - to help you remember to be "flexible" in all things.A lifesaver - to keep you from drowning in everyday problems and 17 more.) By the way thanks to Anita for working with me on this project.

Here is my project:

I covered the paint can in white cardstock. I cut the top circle with the George Cartridge at 5.35."  I used the Plantin Schoolbook for the font (Kristin and Matt) welded it together on a curve. Also the heart which was cut at 4". The bride and groom were cut from the Sweethearts Cartridge and cut at 3".  The leaves were cut from the Flower Shoppe at 1.25." I used MCT rolled flower dies to create the flowers. I used beads, tulle, black ribbon and lace purchased from Hobby Lobby. Now I am so excited to see what you can create for this challenge. Once you create a project link it up to so we can all be inspired. Don't forget to include at lease one cricut cut.

Happy Crafting,
