CWC and PCW Home Decor Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Funky Cards
Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut’s Home Décor Blog Hop!

Our Design Teams have been designing and creating home decor projects.  You won't find any cards here, just wonderful ways to decorate your home:)  If you arrived from Sharon's blog, you are in the right place. If you’ve joined us in mid-Hop and would like to check out all the other fantastic projects head on over Melinda’s Paper Crafting World and start at the beginning. 

Those of you who have been following me for awhile know that my oldest brother, Dalton, is proudly serving in the US Navy. He is currently on his first deployment, which takes him half way around the world.  This is extremely hard for all of us, including his girlfriend, Sami. I wanted to make something for Sami to keep in her room that would make her smile while Dalton is away.

Here are a few of the supplies I started with. I found this cool picture frame at Michael's in the wood section. I also picked up the letter "S" for Sami, an anchor to represent the Navy and a package of nurse stickers. Sami would like to be a nurse when she finishes school.

This is the finished project. The perfect combination of Dalton and Sami. The stars for the flag were cut from the Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge. The face for the nurse was cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge.

Here is a close up of the letter "S."  

I hope you like your picture frame Sami:)
