New puppy

Welcome to another daily project for Exploring Cricut.  As my loyal readers know I lost my Ella this February, and the only thing keeping me going for the last couple months has been knowing I could get another puppy once I got out of school for the summer.  Graduation was May 17 and I traveled to Western Kentucky with a friend on May 18.  I figured I'd held up to my end of the deal.  Granted as a teacher I still had one day of Professional Development that I needed to do, so she went with me.  You can tell by the picture she loved school as much as the students.

 For my project today I decided to make a shadow box.  I used the 5x7 hinged shadowbox from Close to My Heart as different patterns from the Dotty for You paper.

I used the following cartridges and cuts
Gypsy Wandering:"Girl" at 1.47"
Home Decor: flower at 1.59"
Paisley: Paisley at 3.47" (I used all the different layers for this design)
Lyrical Letters (Loop Dee Loo) at 1.67" and welded together using the Gypsy.
On the flower I used a lavender "stickles" from Studio G and I used a small cream pearl (CTMH) on the flower of "Girl" and to dot the "i" of Allie.
I used the same "stickles" on the heart of the paisley and an orange flower from Michaels.
Allie and I thank you for visiting our blog today and don't forget the new challenge that starts on Monday!
