Cricut Circle Road to Ohio Pennant Contest.

Hi everyone, long time no post.  Things have been super super crazy around here.  My Daughter is in Dog Club again this year for 4-H and every week from April 1 to July 22 we go once a week for training on her dog. From the middle of June until fair, it seems we have been going twice a week.  She does agility, obedience, showmanship, trick and costume with him.  He is a very smart pup, and has done quite well the last 2 years.  This year we are planning on going to State with him.  And then with work, gardens, horses, etc.  I have not had a chance to post anything.  I have been shopping though, love to shop for craft/paper crafting supplies.  I just bought 5 of the new carts from Hello Thursday and just had a second to play a little bit.  I am in love with Flower Shoppe.  Not very many cuts on the cart, but they are awesome.  The carts I bought have fewer images then the lite carts, but they have lots of potential.  Anyway, the Cricut Circle is having another contest and I decided at the last minute to enter.  The rules are as follows.

The pennant should be your representation of the state, providence or country of your choosing.
The pennant shape is from the BIRTHDAY BASH CARTRIDGE. The ‘pennants’ that can be used are in the section on pages 58-70. Please use a ‘fit to page’ for a 12×12 inch piece of paper. Pennants larger than 12×12 will be disqualified.
All pennants must be received at the Provo Craft Offices by end of day on Monday, July 18th.

Pennants will not be returned.

I started this last night, and here is what I came up with.  I live in rural Indiana and when I go down the road, look out my window, go shopping, here is what I see.  Lots of Barns and cornfields.  I am quite partial to this area really.  I love the rolling hills and the crops growing.  I love the barns, animals, all things rural.  I finished it this am and got it in the mail to ProvoCraft.  I sent it express, so supposedly they will get it by 3 pm on Monday.  I hope so.

You had to use one of the banners from Birthday Bash for the base, so that is where I started.  I used Country life for the barn, scarecrow, and corn, A Child's year for the girl with cat, and Flower shoppe for all the flowers.  I seriously can't remember what I used for the tree and I just did this last night.




Anyway, hope you like it.

Beth.
