HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  I am SO SO EXCITED to be a part of this fabulous Design Team of Erica's cricut Craft Room at   as this is my very first posting!

Every Monday I will be featuring a cartridge that starts with that letter.. so make sure to come back next Monday and see the cartridge starting with B!  As well as many other projects throughout the month...

Today, I am creating with the LETTER A..  I chose A Child's Year and Imagine Ancestry.

I chose the girl and man which here will be my granddaughter and her papa.   Cutting out at 5in this is such a cute silhouette.  The words Me & Papa is cut out 1.2in  and the background paper is created using the imagine Ancestry paper.  I love it!  it was cut out at 6.5inches to cover the base of the pre-made plain card.
I added a lil rhinestone butterfly as my granddaughter loves to wear things in her hair.

SORRY there are no other pics as I went along - I was so involved back and forth with so many things that I forgot to take pics.
The "&"is white chipboard from MM (I believe.  I inked it with black ink and then wiped a lot off of it..  Not the total look I was going for but it looks pretty cool.  (I hope)  Please click here to see more projects from my fellow Design Team Sisters!!  Please leave a comment .. they are surely appreciated :)  and If you would, please sign up for my e-mails and leave me your blog so I too can follow you.
