Cricut 360 Challenge #12

Welcome back! Today is Friday and I am so excited. I am in the middle of a 3 day crop called Scrapfest. Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 am til midnight of nothing but scrapping! Boy will I have a lot to show ya'll. I did 14 pages yesterday!

On to the challenge... September 19 is Native American Day, so make something Indiany. LOL

When my daughter was in preschool, she had a little stuffed monkey that she carried everywhere named whowhohaha. During Thanksgiving, they made cute Indian shirts and the teacher asked each child their Indian name. They all came up with names like Running Deer, Wise Owl, Leaping Fox, etc. Not my Bailey. She was going to be Whowhohaha. The teacher tried to talk her into something more Indian, but finally gave up and asked her how to spell it! So here is to Indian Whowhohaha!

Cricut 360 Challenge #11

It's Friday!! Whew! It has been a super busy couple of weeks. Preschool has started back for me. At our church preschool, we have 250 sweet little ones that attend. I work mostly in the office doing the computer work and tuition and stuff. But whenever I need a break, I sneak into the toddler room for a little fun. But since school just started, it has been a little loud in the toddler and two year old rooms. It is the first time some of these guys have been away from their momma's, so they are a little upset. But we hold em and rock em and play for a few hours.

Anyhoo... onto this week's challenge - Make something for a HERO. Easy peasy. I know we all have someone in our life that we look up to. I knew I had a black and white picture of my father from his military days that was begging to be scrapped. I used the Stand and Salute cartridge for all of my cuts. This is really a great cartridge to have, so many good patriotic cuts.

I loved the paper I used for American Pride - the way it faded from one color to the next. Not sure where it is from because I got it from a paper swap a while back. I thought it would be neat to use a few dog tags. I really wish I had some sort of thin metal to use for the chain, but grey baker's twine will have to do. The bottom corner needed a little something, so I added the metal star brads.

Hope you like it and that you play along with us at Cricut 360 this week and make something for a Hero in your life.
