Welcome to the Crazy About Cricut Thankful Thursday challenge!! The challenge this week was to honor someone special with a display, like a banner, wall hanging, home decor, or album. Seeing how Memorial Day is just around the corner, I wanted to honor all the wonderful & dedicated servicemen and women we have in our country. They sacrifice so much for our safety and freedom, I just felt that I needed to do something to recognize that. My brother in law is one of the men in Baghdad helping with their rebuilding efforts, so I hope this honors him in some small way.
I liked the idea of subway art home decor for Memorial Day/4th of July, so I decided to make my own! I just used some different fonts in Publisher and arranged them as well as I could. I printed it out on vellum and then used patterned paper with flags on it for my background. My kiddos even learned to crackle with this project! We took a $3 Walmart frame and it turned out pretty well for their first attempt :)
We had to add some stickers to make the frame a little more colorful, of course! My son helped me pick these K & Company Americana collection 3D stickers and we arranged them on the corners.
