"Our Harvest" for Exploring Cricut and More!

Good Morning My Fellow Crafters!
I am so happy to be posting today for Exploring Cricut and More!

Today's project reflects the wonderful bounty of our California garden.
Zucchini, Summer Squash and Cucumbers oh my!!
The tomatoes and corn are just about ready. The Swiss Chard and Beets are doing wonderfully too.

I have been sending the abundant extras with hubby to work and decided it was time for me to take some as well. Now, hubby is fine with a bag...however, I thought it would be fun to dress up a basket a bit. I work in a small educational bookstore and there are not very many of us, but most of us have big families and  appreciate home grown produce.

So, after looking thru some of my "summer" cartridges, I decided on the Garden Soup Cartridge. I loved the "Our Harvest" word art and the basket of veggies.

Images found on page 60 including the layer and phrase feature and cut at 5.0" I did some embossing, added some gems and twine.

Thank you for stopping by, please share with me your garden goodies, I would love to hear about what you grow and even a recipe or two. (I have eaten zucchini just about everyday for weeks)

Also, Monday is the start of a new challenge at Exploring Cricut and More! So please stop by and take a look.

Great way to display your harvest Donna!!
Our garden is just about gone here in Alabama. We have had an over abundance of okra. But we always do. Hubby is still picking cucumbers, peppers and green beans. The tomatoes, corn, squash and cantaloupes are gone. :)
