I am very happy that I am ahead of the game. I have a whole 9 days to get this in the mail to them
My second project is a picture frame that was given to me for my son Mason's class. Mason is 21 months old and his teacher sent home the frame to be decorated for a family picture and then brought back to school. This is so the kids can see their family through out the day. Mason loves Thomas and trains. Really it just amazes me how much. My husband drew Thomas the Tank Engine on Mason lunch bag and he goes crazy, yelling "train" every time he sees it.
It was only fitting that I would decorate the frame with Thomas in mind. I found a piece of Thomas the Tank Engine cardstock at Michael's which worked out perfect. I traced the frame onto the back of the cardstock and then glued the paper on to the frame. I used the "Everyday Paper Dolls" cartridge to make a train Engineer (Mason). I was so exited to see it had a curly hair feature, since my son has curly hair.. see here, I go on and on about his beautiful curls.
I then used the "A Child's Year" font to spell out Mason's Family. I used Mod Podge over the paper for added protection, then I put glue dots on the back of the train engineer for added depth. All in all I am please with my first two projects using my Cricut. Have I mentioned that I just adore my pink Cricut Expression..
