Count Your Blessings!


Can I just say that I really love SCAL? And I really love being able to cut vinyl with my bug. This is my latest home decor project. I needed something tall to go on this shelf (but I think this plaque may be a little too tall, so I'm not sure if this will be its final home), and I thought this saying would be perfect to go by all our family pictures and just above where I keep all the scrapbooks. Because we are definitely blessed! I created this plaque using the Amazone ("count your") and Americana ("blessings") fonts, as well as a dingbat font called Beautiful Ornaments 3 for the flourishes. I left a space at the bottom because it was going behind other stuff, but if I hang it on a wall I'll put a current family photo in that space.

On the same note, here is my latest layout, created for Regina's Bitten By The Bug blog. This week's challenge was the "Lucky" shape from Alphalicious, I thought it would work perfectly with my pics from Mother's Day, because that's how my family makes me feel. :) I sized the cut and shadow in CDS. PP is from Cosmo Cricket, Dutch Girl line, and the little flower is a Martha Stewart punch. TFL!
