Oh, but here's the super exciting part (YES...I said super exciting again...it's a problem, like me and exclamation points!!!!...I'll work on it)...I got to use my new Cricut!!! In case you didn't read my story last weekend, go here to read how I got my Cricut.
I just took this picture and frame that normally hang in my living room (which is a water color I purchased on the Island of Capri when I was stationed in Italy - sorry for the bad photo and washed out colors):
And I just took this picture out for the time being (it will go back in there after Halloween) and replaced it with the new one I made using scrapbook paper I had (which I had actually purchased because I liked the reverse side, I didn't pay attention to this woodgrain side when I bought it). I cut the letters with my Cricut using the George and Basic Cartridge that came with it, and another, larger, candy corn that I made when I made the ones for my candy corn tree.
I was playing with how I wanted the layout when it occured to me they shared the "n"...and that's how I came up with this layout!
I'm also in love with this project!! And like yesterday's Candy Corn Tree...it was also FREE!! I mean, yes, the Cricut cost me alot of money, but I don't think I have to add the cost of that into my project do I? If so, I SOOO overpaid for this candy corn picture! LOL
But I mostly love it because this was made with all things I already had on hand AND it was an original idea!! I don't get those very often...I'm usually just a good copier. So, original ideas that actually turn out cute get me all kinds of jazzed up! :)
I hope you liked today's project!! Don't forget this is a full 7 days series...so come back tomorrow for another project...that was not free or easy and frustrated me to pieces...but turned out too cute for words. ;)
