I wanted to create this project for the Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut this week and I knew who I was going to create this for - this is for our sweet music director at our church, which is why you will see all of the musical references in the project. Now - the challenge is to create something with at least one leaf and as always it must have a Cricut cut in it. Without further ado......
DISCLAIMER: I must say that I this is not my original idea. I learned about this project from my local Crafting Studio -The Little Blue House. This place is adorable and they have the most exciting projects and techniques to learn. One very creative, sweet gal named Lolly designed the tree cutout and made it in Sure-Cuts-Alot, then the owner, Miss Tracy - also so sweet and generous - taught us how to make the canvas. Now, my original canvas is all fall colors and has the words "Autumn Blessings" on it. I love it so much! I really wanted to make more for friends - so they were very happy to cut out a few more trees for me to purchase and take home to get creative! Guess what - you can purchase the trees also!!

The project you see is what I came up with on my own.
Thanks for stopping by! I am currently finishing up another canvas, so stop by in the next couple of days to see it too!!
