Fantabulous Cricut Lite Project

Monday, July 5, 2010

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a Blessed 4th of July holiday. It's time once again for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #17. This week's challenge is called Creepy Crawlers. Your are to create a card, layout, or altered item with your Cricut using any type of bug and include the color "orange" somewhere on your project.

For my take on the challenge I made a "Candy Centerpiece" using one of the new Cricut Lite cartridges called "Live Simply". 

I love the cute images on this one. I'll definitely be making more projects with this very soon. This cart also has the cutest images on it like my favorite....Create a Critter.

I added Stickles to bling it up a bit. I also used orange colored straws and pop dots to make the bees stand up in the glass jar.  The flowers are so thick and the dots keep falling off today so I ended up sewing the flowers together to make them sit straight and centered.

I'm going to sit this on my desk on the first day of school. My students love to snack on Skittles so this will be useful to me all year long.

I also wanted to enter this in the "Favorite Things" and "Sew and Sew" challenge. I love, love, love Skittles (especially the yellow ones). I also love to create with flowers and Stickles. Love that bling! (Smile)

If you don't see your comment here it's because. Blogger is having an issue with comments disappearing and I've already lost 2 of your wonderful comments. So sorry about this. Hopefully blogger will have this fixed today.
