My Altered Cd!!

Well I have finally been able to post about the cd's that I have been altering for the live laugh love banner that we are making as a swap on  We had to make 3 of the same cd's with the same word, we will keep one of those and mail the other two off and get back the other two words you didnt use (I hope that made sense lol!!)  I had to use the word laugh which proved to be slightly challenging!! Laugh was hard to fit across that tiny cd!! Especially when I couldnt find a font that I liked.  Well I finally got them finished after staring at emplty cd's for quite some time! Creating new designs can be difficult, but if you have a passion for design like I do, you may want to look into the information on classes at:

I used my cricut to cut the black scallops out in the background.  Once I attached those then I cut a circle out of cream and black paper that was from DCWV's Bella Armoire stack.  I cut a strip from the same paper pack (different print) for the srtipe down the left side.  I then added a black cardstock strip across the front.  I anchored that iwth the red ribbon and three rhinestones under that.  I edged it with some IAMROSES flowers and tipped those with stickles.  The letters were cut from red cardstock with my cricut and run through my xyron.  I think I am pretty happy with it. For now at least lol!!
One project down ........can't even count how many to go!  thanks for visiting !!
