Cooking with Cricut Challenge # 63: Sounds of the Season

Hello and welcome to another challenge week over at Cooking with Cricut! Our theme this week is to incorporate music into our project- showcase your favorite Christmas carol, or music somehow into your project.  My project is titled- We Wish you a Merry Christmas- I used one of our Christmas Card photos from last year. Here is my project:
All of the paper/stickers/borders are from KaiserCraft- I actually won this line and have been so excited to finally have a chance to use it.  The paper has a beautiful vintage quality- and I love anything vintage. Speaking of vintage, have you been checking out the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun? Everyday Melin has some BEAUTIFUL vintage clip art that she is giving away for FREE! You must check it out! Anyway, back to my project, lol. I used Christmas Cheer and cut some images with the shadow feature at 1 1/4" from different patterned papers to create the border. Here is a close up of some of those images:

(You can also see most of my boxer, Cash, lol. We have since added another, June, to our family as seen in previous posts). The Merry Christmas portion of the title was cut from Joys of the Season.  I hope you enjoyed my project today. I wish I was able to do more right now, but this broken leg has really put a damper on that. I am crossing my fingers for two long more weeks when I will (hopefully) be told I can finally walk again. Cross your fingers for me too!! Can't wait to see what beautiful music-inspired projects you all cook up, and thanks for stopping by!!

I am also entering this project in the following challenges:
