How I used to save me time

I have to share this story with you.  I think it is the perfect example of how can save you time.

My daughter was running for President of Student Counsel and she needed to create a poster.  She really wanted to include a logo that the school uses, but we wanted to create it from the Cricut.  We needed pine trees for the logo, and when we searched pine tree on not only was my daughter happy to see that Doodlecharms had the perfect pine trees for the project, she saw that she could cut four of them in a grouping, and she needed a group of four pine trees for each side . . . PERFECT!  Here is a picture of the trees next to the logo she wanted to imitate.

The center of the logo was easy . . . a circle with the Polar Bear from Animal Kingdom on it.  She trimmed the back end of the bear off, to make it look even more like the logo.  Here it is all put together.

What is really amazing about all of this is that my daughter usually takes a LONG time to pick images she wants to cut . . . in the past, projects with her have meant looking through the handbooks, and then checking again, and then comparing the favorite two images, and then looking just one more time to see if there is anything better . . . you get the idea. Now with's help, we had these images picked out and cut in no time!
