Support your cause @ Fantabulous Cricut!

This week's challenge @ Fantabulous Cricut is to make a project that reflects a cause that's near & dear to your heart. I'll admit that I struggled with this one. There are several causes/charities that I support but I couldn't figure out how to work them into a project. I finally decided to go with a couple of bookmarks, to show my support for the "Reading is Fundamental" children's literacy program.


I was inspired by the images on their website: http://www.rif.org/. The blue and white book is part of the RIF logo, and the "Leading to Reading" is part of their toddler/preschool program. If you have little ones, check out the RIF website - they have some great stories, games, fingerplays and songs - fun stuff!

The book on the first bookmark is from "My Community", cut at 2.5". I cut one blue and one white book, then cut them in half and reassembled them. The turtle on the second bookmark is from "Walk in my Garden", and the other animals are from "Zooballoo". The giraffe was cut at 2.75" and the other animals cut at 2" to 2.5". The font on this bookmark is "CK Tomfoolery", and then I colored in the font with markers.

We'd love to see what causes you support - please link your project up to the Fantabulous Cricut blog. You might win this week's sponsor prize!
