Challenge #51: Heritage/Grandparents

Happy Wednesday and welcome to Cooking With Cricut's weekly challenge!  In honor of Grandparent's Day (September 11), the Design Team was challenged to create a project about or for their grandparents or a heritage project.  Almost everyone has a fond memory of a grandparent or older adult who played that role in their lives.  Some are even lucky enough to have memories of or still have their great-grandparents in their lives.  They are our connection to our roots.  And if we ask the right questions, they will provide us with immeasurable wealth -- stories of their past -- of our past!

Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. ~Alex Haley

Stacey created a beautiful Grandparent's Day card using Plantin SchoolBook
and Lovely Floral cartridges.  Make sure you check out her blog for the details.

Jenny used the George & Basic Shapes cartridge for this super cute card.
Stop by her blog for the recipe!

Madison made these cute photo frames of her older brothers using
the Create-A-Critter cartridge.  Hop on over to her blog for the details!

Jen created a heritage layout of her great-grandparents using the Accent Essentials
and Plantin SchoolBook cartridges.  Check out all the details at her blog.

Melin used the Heritage Cartridge to create this layout.

Melin used her Cricut and the Vintage Bear cutting file from PCW to create this layout.
This file includes a PDF printable pattern for those who need to hand cut the pattern.
There is also a Vintage Bear Digital Stamp version for those who can not use the cutting file.
