Cookie Sheet message board

I found this in a messageboard or a blog I read, sorry but I don't remember where. I thought this was such a great idea, I of course had to try it. I made this one for my sister who loves Sleeping Beauty, her wedding was in a Renaissance theme and they danced to the Sleeping Beauty song for their first dance.

First attempt at Mod Podge

You know, I had been looking over some crafts on the Cricut Message board and noticed a lot of fellow crafters were using Mod Podge, so I decided to give it a try. I made this for a friend of mine's little boy who just turned 1 in December. I cut the animal pictures out of a cardstock sheet with a crafting knife, very tedious, nonetheless I like how it came out. Let me know what you think.

My first attempt

I decided to finally conquer my fear of the Cricut cartridge Happily Ever After. I didn't have big enough cardstock so I made it 4 3/4 high. That was very hard. All the little details didn't come out how I had wanted them. I have now bought good size paper and have made a Cinderella 11 1/4 high. Much better...this size I can deal with. Attached is the pic of the smaller one.
