You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Exploring Cricut Challenge

Welcome to another challenge.  This time, create a card, layout, or project that shows something you are looking forward to this summer.  I love going to a pool, relaxing, refreshment nearby, so ...
I made the lounge chair, table, glass and pitcher from the Block Party cartridge.  The bathing beauty is from Suburbia.  I did some strips of grass for a little variety using Everyday Paper Dolls.  The rest I just played around with to appoximate the look of a pool and patio.

What do you look forward to this summer?  Check out other inspiring projects at Exploring Cricut and enter your project to join in the fun.

Happy creating.
Rae Ann
