Nana's Creative Corner

My cricut needed a face lift so I decided to do some decorating with vinyl. Vinyl is one of my favorites to use. I love the variety of colors. Just use your imagination, I'm sure I will change mine on a regular basis. I was even thinking of the different holiday, to give it a different look! Nanascreativecorner is my blog name!
The cricut head and swirls are just what came to mind for my first face lift.

Hope you enjoyed... If you decide to decorate your bug let me know so I can stop by and check it out too. Have a great day!
