Thankful Thursday Design Team Post


Good Morning Everyone!!! Hope you're all having a good Thursday!  I so look forward to these times.  I love the challenges that we have before us.  Our challenge this week was to make something that "Falls" ...hehe can you see where our theme is coming from?  Tis the season of Fall so we wanted something that fell open.  We were challenged with the Jacob's Ladder or something like it.  You'll have to check out all our design team projects at Crazy About Cricut with Jenny.  

Here is my project.  I made a Jacob's Ladder.  I had fun with this.  I cut my papers then placed my ribbon between and kept it going throughout the project.  The fun came with the testing.  I found that if you put anything on your ribbon going through it will not flip like it is supposed to.  Once I made sure that was all clear ~ test, test and it was off and flipping.  I love the way it came out.  I have added a few other embellishments on here since these photos, but wanted to share this with you.

So do check the ones our wonderful Design Team has created on Crazy About Cricut.  Do please join us for our challenge at Thankful Thursday Challenge on Facebook. There is so much fun to be had!!! 

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you all have a wonderful day.  Today is a difficult day for me as it was a year ago today I learned of my Aunt Lynn's death.  I had been searching for something on the internet to see the headlines "Chittenango Woman Killed By Car"....I thought oh no!! I immediately felt bad for that family ~ mind you I hadn't read the article yet.  I pulled up the article to see the name of my now Step Father and my Aunt Lynn.  I thought when I read it that they had seen something there at the scene, but then when I read to the end it said that my Aunt Lynn was struck by the car!  I was thrown, upset, I cried so hard.  I called my Mother and told her.  There another family member said no it can't be ... they don't have a dog.  I said but it's on the internet and it's our local news channel that reported it ~ then it was on the news.  Telephone calls were made ~ it was verified.  That is a day I'll never forget.  I'll never forget Aunt Lynn.  I pray for her daughter, Stephanie daily ~ I know this is not something easy to live with.  Losing a parent is very difficult.  I lost my Father two years ago now and it still feels like yesterday to me.  Having him buried out here near the house in the cemetery ~ some days it's a comfort having him close ~ other days it is just overwhelmingly difficult to deal with.

Aunt Lynn .... Remembering you and Missing you..



















Have a Blessed Day,

    I love your Jacob's ladder project. My dt post was very picture heavy too, but it's so worth it.
