Theme Thursday

Welcome to Theme Day Thursday with My Cricut Craft Room..
Todays Theme is Patriotic..

What I chose to do was create a table top piece for my dessert table for the 4th of july..

It is really simple, sparkly and just a little bit of a nice touch..

This is SUPER Glittery!
On the words Pursuit of Happiness 
there are 3 Layers
Base - Blue
Shadow - White
Top - Red

The Blue & Red layers have been run through my xyron and given a good heaping
of glitter to them.. I had to use Diamond Glass and a weight to make sure
the layers glued together ..

The anchor represents my husband and his naval career
Shadow is Blue top layer is glittered red

The flowers were not the blue I wanted so I added some spray adhesive to the blue flowers then sprinkled the blue glitter on them

After our 4th of July Party I can add a small photo to this or remove the flowers and add a little bit of a larger photo and then place it in a frame..

The piece measures 5x7
I used Chipboard and adhered some White CS to the top
I then cut a piece of chipboard and scored it to make the stand for the
piece and glued it to the back

Be sure you check out the My Cricut Craft Room blog today to see what 
the other DT Members have created today. 


After a year (almost to the day) of being on the My Cricut Craft Room Design Team I have stepped down as a Design Team Member. I thank Erica for the opportunity of working with her on her Design Team for the length that I did and I enjoyed being a part of the Design Team.

Thank you for giving me a reason to use my Cricut more often.
I hope all of you will continue to check in once in a while as I will check out your creations on your blogs.  I will have one more Design Team post on the 25th of June.

Have a FABULOUS Thursday!!
