Tray Redo

Happy Saturday!

Well I was able to finish my tray from yesterday and it was a bit more of a challenge than I had originally thought due to the finish that was already on it.  So what I did was sand it down some, put some paint and then took a dry brush to pull some of the darker color back out and distressed the edges.  Then my trusty and wonderful vinyl machine went to work :)  I finished it off by putting on these adoreable flowers that have the cutest gingham circles on it, added a few cute bumble bees and now it is a finished product on the family room wall :)  I can't wait to continue to brainstorm for more ideas in that room.  It isn't looking as bare now.

So that's it for now.  Busy weekend ahead so hopefully I'll have more soon.  Make it a great day!

Oh Laura, that is beautiful. I need to know more about that machine you cut vinyl with. You create some really nice things using the letters. Have a great weekend.

Very nice ;) I just ordered several Cricut cartridges from They are having $5.00 shipping which I think is great :) Most cartridges are $29.95. I can't wait to get them so I can start creating.

Granny ~ I thought you'd like it :) The vinyl machine I have is the Cricut Expression. They have a smaller one of it also. It is fabulous. You can do vinyl, material cutouts, cardstock and many different things with it. Love it!

Kim ~ Oh how exciting! You are going to love it! Great deal on the shipping girl!! Can't wait to see what all you do with yours :)
