Good Morning, and Happy Monday, which means it's Challenge Me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut. This week's challenge it to create a project using an umbrella or hat. I have used the umbrella from Create a Critter. I wanted to make a wall hanging using these pictures of my son playing in the rain a couple of years ago. I used a quote by Joseph B Wirthlin which I find really uplifting, 'Come what may, and Love it'. I think these pictures of my boy playing in the rain are a great example of finding the best in something.
I took an A4 piece of chipboard and covered it with We R Memory Keepers paper. I took 3 photos of different sizes and matted them on green paper. I cut out the umbrellas in 3 sizes and flipped the 2 smaller ones. I took a length of wire and wrapped it around an embossing tool, then punched 2 holes in the top, put eyelets in and put the wire through them, then tied some ribbon on it. I decorated it with some bits and stamped 'fun' from a MPS set. I printed the quote and matted that also.
