The first one is a challenge I did for the Circle MB. The challenge was to use a second 'machine' in addition to the Cricut. I LOVE my Xyron thanks to Allison and Caroline on the board. The Xyron makes glittering a snap-- the glitter is adhered permanently and smoothly every time.
For fun, these are each of the dancers:
My next project was the Weekly Blog Challenge #12: Nine Ladies Dancing.
For this project, I used one of the dancers from Shall We Dance. I discovered an omission on the layers for this figure-- the hair is missing at her shoulder on the right. I hand-cut that to look more like the cart. I cut the character at 8-1/4" and then just chopped off her bottom half. I cut a second figure, cutting off her head and hands in order to create a pattern for her new shirt.
I love doing challenge projects and really had so much fun completing these! I am loving these new dance cartridges, dancing or not!
It is the weekend before Christmas and I still haven't put up the tree but mass tonight was beautiful in the Cathedral of the Assumption and I was reminded of the hope and anticipation that comes during advent. Hug your family and say a prayer for peace this year.
