Cooking With Cricut- Ground Hog Day Salute

Welcome to Cooking With Cricut Challenge # 15
Ground Hog Day Salute

The challenge this week is to create a project using a shadow in honor of the ground hog:)  The shadow can be anywhere on your project.

My project this week is a wall hanging inspired by my brother, Dalton's, Navy graduation picture.  And as a show of support to our troops, I am entering this into the FCCB challenge this week for a cause that I support!  

The wall hanging includes a text box with his name, ship number, division number, and graduation date.

The text box started as white card stock. It was distressed with two different colors of ink and then torn to achieve this look.    

The shadow, and sailor hat were created from the Stand And Salute Cricut cartridge.

Here is a close up of the text box with the information added:)

The picture was shadowed with a rectangle.  The stars and the word "Honor" were also cut from the Stand And Salute Cricut cartridge.

As you can see, it is really easy to take a favorite or special picture and make it into a keepsake.  This is now hanging in the craft room, which was Dalton's bedroom!  My mom loves it:)  I hope I have inspired you to make something for yourself or for a friend.

There are many other projects to look at this week.  Please take a moment to check out the other Design Team members' blogs at Cooking With Cricut to see what they have cooked up for you!!  And remember, you have until next Tuesday to enter this week's challenge for a great prize!!

Thank you for stopping by!
