Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge "Elephants"

Hello crafty friends,


It's time for another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge. Last weeks projects were amazing!! I hope you will come and join our FUN challenge this week.


Theme: Elephant
( create a project using an elephant )
 
Elephant Appreciation Day was declared  beginning of 1996 by WillHeart Productions to celebrate the elephant
 
When: September 22
 
Origin of Elephant Appreciation Day
 
Mission Media Inc. created in 1996, largely because elephants are.....large. ( and a whole lot of other great things) The founder Wayne Hepburn, received a paperweight of elephants on parade from his daughter as a gift. he became fascinated by them. He amassed a huge collection of elephant books and paraphernalia. His fascination and love of elephants, led to creation of this day so you and I can stop and enjoy this huge, and lumbering beast.
 
 
Sponsor
( Will provide a choice of  Cricut or Card Magazine, September 2012 issue, and a Megan Elizabeth Sparkle light set. )
