I promise I won't start whining (even though I WANT to) because you probably came over from Stephanie's Blog looking for something crafty, lol, NOT to join in on a pity party. Soooo, before my tantrum starts, here you go!
Last week was the start of another school year for me (so long, summer, sniff), and I saw a FANTASTIC piece of art shared on a friend's Facebook wall that featured a teacher's prayer that I had never heard. By the end of the looooong first week, I NEEDED to create it for daily inspiration. Here's my take on it and the link to the original piece of art.

Now, my original vision of this project involved me stamping most of the prayer, but I quickly came to my senses and designed the rest of the prayer on Design Space for the Cricut Explore. I used a few different cartridge fonts including Artistry, A Child's Year, and two Creative Memories fonts.
I changed all of the fonts to "write" and duplicated the words I wanted to cut so I could also cut them by setting them to cut lines again. I was quite ecstatic to find that the cricut pen was alright with me using my ShinHan markers to fill in some of the words--it didn't bleed at all.
The images and dies from the School Kids set were PERFECT for this project!
|Well, of COURSE I used some red glitter paper! ;)|
I hope you found some inspiration here, but for now you are off to Kelly's Blog to see what she's been up to this summer!
Here's the entire lineup for our little blog hop in case you get lost as you drown in your summer's end tears...
