Hello crafty friends!!

I am here today to share with you a really fun shot glass I decorated using my Cricut, a Miss Kate Cuttables SVG file, and some vinyl. This shot glass (or dessert glass)
matches the gorgeous candle I shared on Tuesday.

 


What College Grad wouldn't love this little gift? Fill it with some candy or add to a basket with a favorite adult beverage. Or just sit it on a shelf! I love it!

  I recently had the priveledge of visiting the beautiful country of Greece where my dad was born and my grandparents still live. 

I know that most of you would love to see photos of my amazing trip but I haven't developed the photos yet and am still looking for the perfect embellies. 

I did create the cover page for my album of my trip. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!
 



I used recollections paper, card stock, cricut carts: Picturesque, Destinations and a postage stamp mat. The gold square sequins were actually purchased in Greece. The photo is my dad and I at the bottom of the Parthenon. 

I also created some pretty sample bags of Greek mountain tea I brought back to share with some of my friends. This herbal tea is know for its many healing benefits. My family has used it for years and I was super excited to bring it home with me. 



 

The font I used is Dionysis and was cut with my explore. The border was cut welding together a design from the Picturesque cartridge. And the gold cord is from 3 Girl Jam. 



Up next is the talented and crafty (my friend)
