New project attempt!

I hope you are having a great Saturday. Our weather here in Arizona is in the low 70's and sunny. Sorry, I don't mean to rub it in, but this kind of weather in January is why we live here! We all lived somewhere else and don't want to deal with the terrible winters anymore. I always say....."You don't have to shovel sunshine!"

Anyway, today I went to a Sewing, Quilt and Craft show with some good friends of mine (that I only see once a year for this show) and I stopped by a booth that was selling personalized photo mats. They were made of some type of lightweight wood, and were almost $18. I thought to myself, I can make that with my Cricut Expression and Gypsy! When I got home, I started trying to weld together a mat shape and then welded the letters to the bottom. I think it looks quite close to what the wood ones looked like.

Let me know what you think! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
