Prom 201

This year was my first year as a class sponsor and they put me with the junior class.  Talk about jumping in feet first, no going slow for me!  Our biggest event is of course prom, and this year the juniors decided on Red Carpet Romance for their theme with a heavy emphasis on Hollywood and the movies.

To enter the gym we wanted to create a ticket booth complete with marquee.  This was one of the items we were most proud of creating cause it turned out even better than we had envisioned.  For my part I used Plantin Schoolbook, Graphically Speaking, Winter Woodland, and Forever Young.

 Now Showing:  6.0" from Plantin Schoolbook
Red Carpet Romance: 6.0" from Winter Woodland
Prom 2014 and Ticket Booth: 4.0" from Plantin Schoolbook

Star:  9.0" from Graphically Speaking
Silhouette: 12.88" from Forever Young.

We also have to create something with each seniors' name on it as a take away.  This was a little harder since we had two projects that we thought would be cute.  Our original idea was to create a director's clapboard.  I cut these out using Locker Talk at 11.0"

The words were cut using Plantin Schoolbook at .75"
We then lined the gym enterance with these!
My final crafty contribution to the prom was a "walk of fame" using the seniors' names.  This was a super easy part, but it was a huge hit with the kids!
I cut the stars out using Graphically Speaking at 9.0"
We then lined the hallway with these stars, taping them down so they wouldn't be destroyed.
Prom was a huge success, but I'm glad I don't have to do it again for a long time.

Summer Challenge

Welcome to another challenge for Exploring Cricut and More.  My project for the challenge isn't one that screams summer, but more Memorial Day.  I chose to do a double page layout in rememberance of my dad.  It's been almost 2 years since my dad passed away from cancer and the patriotic holidays were always his favorite.

My dad served in the army during peace time, but because of his service he felt a strong dedication to this country and the men and women that served it.  

For this project I used the following cuts
Stone Script for the font
Stand and Salute for the flag
From my kitchen for the grill
The flowers are from my stash

Happy Birthday Averi!

For my project today I'm sharing a project that I created for my Assistant Principal's daughter.  It was her 1st birthday recently and her mom asked me to create a banner for her birthday party.  This was a cool project to work on since it's something I normally wouldn't do for myself.

I began with the scallop circle then added the purple and teal circles.

Then this cute little owl.  Brandi picked this one out of all the choices because it was the closest to the owls that she used to decorate the nursery.
The finished project:

Cricut Cuts:
Mini Monogram:  scallop circle @ 6.53"
George and Basic Shapes:  circles @ 6.76" and 5.94"
3 Birds Straight From the Nest:  Owl and all parts @2.29"
New Arrival:  bow@2.29"
Alphalicious:  name@ 2.77" and welded words @2.06"

Cardstock:  Colorboc
Ribbon from stash

April is Autism Awareness month and this was my year to be in charge of it at school.  One of my responsibilities was to help create a bulletin board.  This is what we came up with.
Of course we used puzzle pieces which is the symbol used for Autim and we found an acronym that we liked for Autism which is

Cartridges used:
