Cricut Crop!

The Cricuts were chirping and Carol was awesome as she bounced around form table to table answering questions and inspiring all who attended. For our make-n-take Carol help everyone design an image to etch onto a glass plate. Here are a few. . .

This one was designed by Rachel Branch.

Pat Hines created this image for her plate. . .

Jayne Mc Laren became my personal favorite when Carol helped her add a title to her image. What great gifts these can be!
