I am a Guest designer on Love to Crop!! so EXCITED..

HI.  My name is Doris.  I am a cricut-holic - paper-holic- etc.. I love my acrylic & rubber stamps, paper, ink, fiber, bling, stickles, and so on... and everything else that happens to come into my stash to help me create.  I am a stay at home mom / grandma. with a hubby, 3 grown kids & 1- 7yr old son. Jayden said he really loooved my project and to show everyone so here it is... and 4 other awesome Grandkids.. We keep busy! I babysit my 2 yr old granddaughter and just lately she's been wanting to play with my crafts..  ALRIGHT!!!  that makes all my grandkids crafty kids :)

I love to be inspired by so many blogs and always looking for that new blog.. Would love to have you follow me if my creativity inspires you.. So please leave your blog address so that I may come on over and leave you some love too. go ahead and be honest.. just don't make me cry..  Ever see a menopausal women cry??   if not - it's not pretty :0

SO... For the next 2 weeks I will be a GUEST DESIGNER on Amy's Blog - Love to Crop and am so excited.  My very first as a GUEST DESIGNER and can't be any more excited than to have it on Amy's blog!!  Thank you Amy for having me.

OUR project is FALL COLORS.. reds, yellows, greens, oranges, browns. MAKE ANY PROJECT using these FALL COLORS.   I LOVE this time of year and these colors.  So without waiting any further... here is my project.    This simple aluminum frame was bought from Hobby Lobby.   created on my Gypsy and cut-out on my Expression using green vinyl from Cricut.com,  It will happily hang on my porch!
I filled it up with Vinyl words , Apple and a few leaves  -
CRICUT CARTRIDGES USED WERE:
A Child's Year -  Car Decals - Give A Hoot - Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art- Printing 101- Pumpkins Carvings - Straight From The Nest - Thanksgiving
There are also epoxy stickers  (unknown source; had them a while out of the package, BUT I did purchase them from Micheal's last year.)  leaves are stickers from Micheal's.





This is the back of the frame.  I put on a vinyl pumpkin.  Will eventually make another set of words BUT will add the family name to this side.
 Please head on back to http://www.lovetocrop.com and check out the rest of the awesome projects from more fabulous Guest Designers  - created in the Awesome FALL COLORS. Leave them some love too..   I encourage YOU to make ANY project & using FALL COLORS and link it up in the link just above! Amy at Love to crop will have a giveaway for those linking up.  Can't WAIT to see what you have created....
Until then....  have a blessed day!
Doris
