Exploring Cricut ~ Back to School Challenge ~

Welcome to the bi-weekly challenge at Exploring Cricut
 
This week our theme...
 
Back to School
using the colors red, green, white,
black, orange, yellow AND include one ribbon
 
Here's my project featuring the old standby cartridge George and the Cricut Craft Room...


I cut multiple rectangles skewing them to create a partial chevron pattern.  2 inch hearts from the same cart make up my blossom.  A bit of left over green ribbon becomes useful when used as faux leaves.  I used the Craft Room to create my title, welding the letters and numbers together.  This layout was designed for a 5 x 7 photo.  I can't wait to put my grandson's photo on here!
 
  Thanks for visiting!
