Sunday Project, Winners, and News!

Happy Sunday! I can't believe it is the end of August. Seems like this year has flown by.  Diane here sharing our last daily project for awhile.  After 4 years of providing daily inspiration, it is time for a break.  Now do not think this blog is finished, because I promise that it is not the case.  It will not be daily for a little while.  I have several post done ahead and will be sharing with you all.  Sometimes life needs to be jump started and so does the blog.  I want to personally thank you all for following and hope that you continue to do that.  Our Facebook and Pinterest pages will still be active as will this blog so you can always check out previous projects.  It has been my pleasure to work with very talented people on this DT and love having you join in our challenges.  I want to take a look at what I can do to make it even better .  Today I am going to share this calendar page I created using the Cricut Explore and svg files Treasurebox Designs.  This was a fun calendar page to create so check out all her fabulous designs.  Our winners of the challenge are posted below my picture and thanks to all that took the time to enter, we loved you sharing with us!!!  You are the reason we shared all the Cricut inspiration and will continue in the future.  Like I said, a break, but not gone.  You will probably see a couple things this week.  I have been working on some great items I want to share.  Thanks again for your support and hope you continue.
