Some exciting news!

Some exciting news!  

I am so excited to announce that I am a new member of the  Cooking With Cricut Design Team!  I am honored to join these lovely creative ladies!

Our first project was to help celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday......Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!  Read Across America:  Share a project featuring your favorite Dr. Seuss book or a project that encourages reading.  

As soon as I read the challenge, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to use.  I absolutely LOVE this picture of my god-son "reading" to my son.  The picture was taken in 1997.

The stars were cut at various sizes using George & Basic Shapes.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 are digital files from Paper Crafting World.

 The journaling is hidden behind the photo.

The stars were cut out using George & Basic Shapes,
embossed with various Cuttlebug folders and embellished 
a little with Stickles.  Foam tape was used to add dimension
to a few of the stars.

 A close up of Trevor showing Daulton 
the pictures as he is "reading" it to him.

 Please be sure to check out the Cooking with Cricut site as well as all of 
the other creative design team members.  I'm sure you will be inspired.

Join in on the fun and link up your favorite Dr. Seuss inspired or reading themed project.  You could be CWC's next Top Chef!  Check out Cooking with Cricut for the guidelines and link location.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time....Hattie
