The Letter "M"

My Imagination Monday & The Letter of The Day - M

September 24, 2012 

Hello Crafty Blends.
I am exited to share another
altered journal with you today.
For our DT projects today at
 My Cricut Craft Room,
 we were to create
a project
using The Letter M.

I instanly thought of McKenzie, my oldest daughter.
I had her help pick out the fun cuts that I would
use for the altered composition book.
She closed her eyes and spun her finger around
in circles around the images on the back 
of the Cricut Slumber Party cartridge.
How funny is it, that the images she landed her finger on were
a Microphone and a Moon!
You can't get much more PERFECT than that!

She also asked me to use 
the Cricut Jasmine cartridge for the font (her name).

Here is the finished altered notebook:

She really isn't all into the color Pink, but
accepted the fact that all of the Design Team projects at
My Cricut Craft Room through October  15th
will be 

I tried to use a minimal amount of pink, which was difficult for me,
but I toned it down with the Teal Paper by K&Company-Embossed Winter.
I used it to cover the front and back covers of the book.
Teal is her Favorite Color!!!

The Microphone and Moon
were both cut at 4" each using
various colors of cardstock.

McKenzie was cut at 2" for each letter, with the letter M
being the only letter I cut from the Charm Feature
on the cartridge.

I used Versa Mark inks in Black and Champagne Dazzle
then heat embossed the Sheet Music stamped background (by Unity)
with a black glittery powder
and heat embossed the stamped foliage (also by Unity)
 in the lower right corner using
a clear glitter powder from Ranger.

Please head back to My Cricut Craft Room,
to view all of the wonderful projects that the Design Team is
sharing today!

Keep Crafting
