Rooster Tray

Hope everyone had a good & safe New Year's.  My husband & I both caught colds, so we took it easy at home so we wouldn't get our friends sick.  In between taking cold medicine & naps, I sat down to work on a couple projects I have had on my scrapbooking/crafting 'To Do List'.  I am excited to say that I was able to mark off 2 projects & the year just started. :)

One of the projects that I completed and am sharing is a 7Gypsies Tray that I can display in my kitchen.  I have started collecting Roosters in my kitchen & during a visit to Arizona, my husband and I stopped in Sedona where we find a shop & took the picture of a rooster which I was able to use in the tray to display it in a different way other than just a frame.  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!

Recipe for this project:
- 7Gypsies Solo Shadowbox Tray, 6x6 in Black
- Rooster from From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge cut at 1.5
- Hen from Country Life Cricut Cartridge cut at 1.5

- Stickles in Xmas Red
- Pop Dots on Rooster
- Clear Crystal Stickers Elements, around the outside of th T
