My Imagine-nation Monday at My Cricut Craftroom

Well this has been a busy weekend huh?  Blog hopping all weekend and now a Monday post!  What was I thinking??  But I did manage to get it all in.  I hope you enjoyed the 100 Cricut Cartridge blog hop and commented on every blog because Erica was giving away some awesome blog candy.  Even if you didn't have a chance to hop with us, you still should take a few minutes during your lunch today and check out the amazing projects all the DT members had going on!

Now for my Imagine-nation post.  This project is something you've probably seen not to long ago.  Here's my story though.  Two weekend's ago I was at a craft show (we were camping and our resort had the beginning of the season festivities.)  As I passed one of the booths something caught my eye.  A gumball machine candy dish.  Oh my it was darling.  As I walked up closer I saw how it was made.  Now, if you are like me, when you go to craft shows and see something you like you think to yourself, "oh I could do that", well this time I was determined to MAKE my dish and not buy it!  So that week I ran all over town looking for the things I would need, and I found them ALL!!

 Can you tell what this is made from?  Simple is not even simple enough to believe!  A flower pot, saucer, clear "fish" bowl and a wooden ball.  That's it!  I then used Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge and cut out the mushroom flower vine image.  I used mod podge to adhere it to the front and there you go!  can you tell by all the !!! in this post that I love, love this project?!?
Here's a close-up of the die cut from the Imagine cartridge.

So, to finish the story, I was so excited I couldn't wait to tell one of my crafty friends who said, "oh yeah I saw that on Pinterest, in fact Heather (my OWN daughter) pinned it to her board"  Well, even though I wasn't quite so excited anymore I am still proud that I actually made a project I saw at a craft show LOL and the best part?  Heather doesn't know I made this because she's been off on her honeymoon ;-)

Well that's enough from me today.  Make sure you visit My Cricut Craft Room to see more projects like mine!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy scrappin!
