Happy memorial day

Hello all my crafty friends
I am very excited today since this is my first post as a special guest designer over at Exploring Cricut . I had complete full range on what I wanted to do on this project which is awesome by the way, So I thought. I couldn't decide on what I wanted to. I kept thinking of projects and then saying,"no that's not what I want to do". Then it finally hit me, I thought well this post is going to go live on Memorial Day so lets do a memorial day themed project. And so I did exactly that. I hope you enjoy and I went a little photo crazy so bare with me.

First is the picture of my whole project. It is a little hard to see details because I had to back up some to get everything in the picture. Don't worry though I have plenty of close up pictures.

I will start with the easiest, the rosettes. The little ones you see hanging in the middle those were created using the ribbons and rosettes cricut cartridge. The big ones you see I created using an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Made in the USA.

Next we will talk about the cupcakes. For the pics I used plantin schoolbook cricut cartridge. I just used a circle and a star and cut them out. For the cupcake wrappers again I used the Made in the USA kit. Now for the cute little stand you see those cupcake on I used another SVG file from SVG Cuts called Popular Street Tulips. I love the files over at SVG Cuts they are super simple to put together and super cute.

Last but not least the Uncle Sam like hat. I used the Made in the USA file agin for this hat but I just made it bigger then it comes on the file. I wanted it to be more of a center piece. I cut it out with decorative paper and also I decorated each side with something memorial dayie.

The star is from Plantin Schoolbook and I just scored it so it would look 3D.

The cute little kid silhouette and that adorable flower you see both came from the Made in the USA kit.

The little rosette came from the ribbons and rosettes cartridge. I actually was going to hang it but I ran out of room to hang it so I decided to attach it to the hat instead.

The little menu and food name stands I found online on a website but I cannot remember where and I thought I saved the link but I guess I didn't I do apologize for that.
Well I hope you have enjoyed my memorial day mini party. Please Don't forget to comment I love to read your comments. If you are not a follower also please follow me I would love to have more followers.
