Remembrance Day - Exploring Cricut

Happy Monday everyone!  It is a busy day here on my blog.  I have 3 posts going live today, so be sure to check them all out!  It is challenge day over at Exploring Cricut.  Today's challenge is to create a Veteran's Day project.  Now, in Canada, we don't have Veteran's Day, but we do have Remembrance Day, so I made a Remembrance Day project.  Here is what I came up with:


I found this project to be a bit of a challenge, I wan't sure which direction to go in, I decided simple was best.  "Lest we Forget" is from Gypsy Font - I did a bit of welding.  The poppy - which is a but lopsided, is 4 hearts from Cricut Craft Room basics welded together on my Gypsy.  The black centre is also from Craft Room Basics.  The paper and ribbons are from Michael's.

I hope you hop over to Exploring Cricut, see what the DT came up with and join us in our challenge this week!
