The campus center I work at has Coffee House on select Mondays.  I made this sign for our sign post in the front of the building.

On the 24th we will have a Student Art Show and Coffee House.  To promote it, several of us had to do art pieces that we could use in promotional advertising (not to be judged).  This is my Cricut Picasso.  I don't care for his cubism work, but let me tell ya folks - it's HARDER than it looks.

This is my face, fragmented with personality.  You can't see but I used the cuttlebug folder with writing on it. Because my face is older with lines in it.  I always wear my hair behind one ear, so only one ear is showing.  My  name is penny, so I used the cent sign for my ear.  I chose the shapes I wanted to use and put them all over the mat then cut the mat several times with different colors of papers on them. I used foam tape and zots to give it some depth and pop which can't be seen on this picture.   I'm glad this project is done! 

Okay, yeah, it's been awhile, but I have been CRICUTing, just not posting.  I have a new job and the learning curve has been steep.

Here we go. First, Ellis, turned 2 and had a cookie monster birthday.  The best part of this is that my husband, dressed up like the cookie monster.  My husband has dressed up for halloween about twice in our 30 years of marriage.  He just doesn't do stuff like that, but for Ellis.... anything.

The little cookie monster head on a tongue depressor is a bookmark and I stamped
"E is for Ellis" on it.

I did a HUGE cookie monster on a Pizza Pan that I made little cookies for.  The cookies had magnets on the back so you could throw the cookies at the cookie monster and try to get them in his mouth.  I forgot to get a picture of it and it was the best thing I did for that day.

I made the banner and the hat.  Beth made the food along with some of her friends.  The table was spectacularly filled with wonderful colors and good things to eat besides cookies. 

Happy 2nd Birthday Ellis
