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.

Back to School Challenge at Exploring Cricut and More

Welcome to this week's challenge--Make a card, layout, or paper project using any cutting machine, and use  a 'back-to-school' theme.

I used the Cricut Create-a-Friend cartridge for my card.

I've fallen in love with this cartridge.  All of the figures come out so cute and they are easy to assemble.  I think I cut most at 2 1/2 inches, the boy at 2 inches.
The paper, which looks like the kind that was used to practice cursive, was in a pack of cardstock I have called Celebrations.

Let us see your version of a back to school project at Exploring Cricut and More and please continue to visit each day to see what our design team has to offer.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Creating.
Rae Ann
