So here is the Monogram post I mentioned on my last post about wood grain.  I am loving adding monograms to my projects lately.  I have another layout that I created that I will share soon. However, the first project I have to share with you today was created for the Cricut Blog back in January using the Cricut Letter Envy Cartridge.  We had just moved into our new home and I was inspired to create a home decor piece to add a personal touch!  I cut the images from various Lilly Bee patterned papers.  The black "M" & numbers were cut from a piece of velvet paper by Teresa Collins. I love the texture it adds!  I also cut the large shadow image from chipboard to give the entire letter more dimension.

Now I am going to test your observation skills.  Do you seen anything in this layout that looks familiar? Here is a hint...Look at the letter shape behind the photo.  Any guesses?

If you haven't guessed, I used the scrap paper from the home decor piece above to create the silhouette background for this layout! I love the save my scraps and I especially love when I find a good use for them!!!

I also played a bit with gesso on this Dusty Attic chipboard piece.  Nothing fancy, but I love the texture it added. 

Another thing I had fun doing was layering all the little banners stickers that are part of the Lilly Bee sticker sheets.  Overall, this has to be one of my favorite layouts of late.  But quite honestly that changes frequently! LOL!!!

Thanks again for your visit and kind words!!!
I hope you had a great weekend and that the upcoming week is wonderful!
