Grandparent's Day Cricut Blog hop w/ Erica's Craft Room

Hi everyone!  I hope you are enjoying hopping along and checking out all the awesome Grandparent's Day projects that were created using the Cricut.



My project is a layout showcasing 4 generations.  This picture was taken earlier this week during a fun visit.  I titled it "It's all because 2 people fell in love."


I used 4 different cartridges on this layout.  That wasn't planned, but it's fun since the picture has 4 generations of people.  'Stone Script' for the word LOVE, 'Cake Seasonal Sampler' for the double hearts, 'Jubilee' for the words fell in, and 'Plantin Schoolbook' for the 2 and heart strip at the top.

The word LOVE is raised with EK Success 3D dots.  The large double heart is hooked onto the E.  The small set of double hearts is also raised above the O.  I really like all the dimension that creates and it emphasizes what is the most important, love.



This layout also has DCWV papers, alphas from Thickers and Lily Bee Design, brads and Prisma color pencil and marker.

The Grand Prize for this hop is sponsored by Erica at Erica's Craft RoomOne person will win
