Planes, Tranes, and Automobiles

This week's challenge at Exploring Cricut is to create a card, layout, or other paper craft that incorporates some form of transportation.
For my project I created a card for our preacher's wife and her baby which is scheduled to be delivered in a couple of days.

Congratulations Squared

Today I have the daily project for Exploring Cricut. Since this is the month for babies I decided to make a card for a couple from my church that just had twin boys.
I truly believe all babies are gifts from God, but these two sweet boys are true blessings. Both boys were healthy, but a month early. One of the twins was extremely small so he had to stay in the hospital a little longer. I can't imagine a mother having to leave one child behind while taking one child home.
Here's my project for today.

Person Challenge

The challenge over at Exploring Cricut for this week is to create a card, layout, or other paper craft and include a person somewhere on your design.

For my project I create a card for a baby shower for a co-worker who is due to have a baby girl next week. Although I don't have children of my own I love babies. This is a totally awesome month around here. At church we have one couple who just had twin boys, a co-worker who is having a baby girl, and toward the end of the month our preacher and his wife will be having a baby boy.

Here's my project for this week!

Daily Project September 6: Door Decoration

My project for today's daily project is a decoration for my classroom door. We recently had a visit from the Commissioner of Education for the state of Kentucky. All teachers were asked to decorate their door along the theme of "Spinning a Web of Success" or Spiderman. This is a schoolwide theme for the year. I'm not a big spiderman, or spiders for that matter, fan. Thankfully my Director of Special Education decided that we as a department would do the "same" door.

I used the cartridge Learning Curve for my title "Our Web of Services" and the letteres were welded together using the Gypsy.

I decided to weave my own web with an ecru yarn, for my spider to rest on. I then posted different services that the special education department offers for our students and their parents. I thought weaving the web would be a lot easier than it was. Like so many of my other projects the web looked much better in my head.

The spider came from Paper Doll Dress Up (Accessory 3 button).
