Happy Wednesday!

Hello Crafty Friends!
Today is my day to post as a Design Team member for My Cricut Craftroom and our
assignment for this Would You Ever Guess Wednesday was to use the Create A Critter or
Create A Critter Two and use a key OTHER than the animal key.
I had just had the pleasure of helping a bride do some projects for her wedding which will be held this Saturday!  It is a church wedding with the reception at her parent's barn!  She has adorable mason jar
candles for the tables, we decorated bubbles and drink cuzies too! 
She had two large pails that she wanted to use for something and asked what I could come up with for decorating.  Her theme is "Lucky In Love" and she is using horseshoes as part of the decorating scheme.
So with Cricut and Ribbon in hand....here is what I did!
These were very difficult to get to photograph very well!

For the first container, I put their names on the front of the container along with the saying
"Lucky In Love".   I used blue stickles to give it a little glam and to help the words stand out a bit.

I added a heart and a horseshoe to the front of the bucket as well.

 For the second container, I added their names along with their wedding date and a horseshoe once again:

Then the part of the decorating that I found the most fun was the handles!
It's obvious I must have liked one design better than the other, because I took quite a few photos of one and hardly any of the other!  Whoops!
Here is my favorite!
I used the Create A Critter Cartridge to cut the horseshoe from page 59 
(this is the same horseshoe I used throughout the project).
I cut the word art Mr. and Mrs. from the Tie The Knot cartridge on page 62. I used the tag feature key for that.
I punched tiny holes and used wire to attach the horseshoe and the "Love"
word art from page 54 of the Tie the Knot Cartridge.  That way they dangled down from the
Mr. and Mrs. sign.  I cut and tied a bunch of ribbon around the handles.
(I did the same on the opposite handle as well).

For the other container, I tied a large bow from the blue sheer ribbon and attached
a horseshoe and some hearts to that to have them dangle down as well!

Sorry I don't have good shots of the handles on this one!
Here they are together and I am so eager to see exactly how the bride uses them for the wedding and 
reception. I believe she planned to put her wedding programs in the one that said "Mr. and Mrs." and then use the other either for silverware or for Chex Mix that they are having at the wedding.
I wish them a beautiful day!
Thank you for visiting and I hope you will head over to My Cricut Craftroom and see the other 
projects my fellow design team sisters created for today!
