BBTB Thankful Contest - Home Decor Vinyl Project

Hi Everyone!
Over at Bitten By The Bug they are having another cool contest. It's any kind of project based on Thanksgiving, gratitude, blessings, turkey stuff, being thankful/grateful, etc. I really like how they pointed out that most people can tend to skip from Halloween to Christmas, so I thought this was a great contest. So here's what I came up with, and the details:

Give Thanks: Storybook-with shorty/holes feature cut @ 2"

Live,Laugh,Love: Home Accents cut @ 6"

leaves: Doodlecharms (p. 115 in handbook) -border feature cut @ 2",
single leaves cut @ 1 3/4"
names: Storybook-shadow feature used cut @ 3" and 2 1/2"

In the rest of the empty squares, I am going to put the rest of my kids names. This project was not as time consuming as I thought it would be. Cutting the letters took no time at all, and putting them up, I decided to cut each letter out all the way (not just a kiss cut-which is when you cut through only the vinyl and not the backing), so I could peel and stick them individually. This worked out for me this time, but using the transfer tape is also another option when working with vinyl. Hope everyone likes it, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today!
