Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop
You should have started at if not please start at the beginning

If you came here from
Janet then you are on the right track

The first project I decided to make is
a dishwasher magnet. I decided my guys needed a little hint for when they should put dishes IN the dishwasher and not in the sink. Knowing the dishes in the dishwasher are dirty should prompt them to do that right?

Recipe: Love You A Latte
Shape - 3.50"

Cup - 2.50"

Storybook - Font .50"

Next, I used my grandkids' Halloween photo from 2010 to create this layout.

Recipe: Autumn Celebrations
Ship - 4.50"

Letter Envy
K & T cut at 1.50"

Threading Water punch for the border layers
Core'dinations Chocolate paper for the ship. I loved this paper. Brown on one side and red on the other and I sanded it.

love the layout, the kids' photo is so cute and it perfect with that LO I wanted to do a dishwaher magnet too but my husband said, why bother, I won't look at it LOL

Homespun Elegance said...

I've thought about doing a magnet for the Dishwasher too!! A reversible one Clean on one side/dirty on the other so he knows when he needs to put them away!! Tooooo many times he's put away the dirty dishes!! (But at least he's trying right!) But I think it's one of those men things - screw it up and she will never ask you to again!! LIKE LAUNDRY - Because I didn't know what was mixed in I had to rewash everything!! :) It's a man conspiracy from birth!
