Cricut project-weekly challenge

I was looking around on the Cricut Circle blog and decided to do the weekly challenge. The weekly challenge was to create something with a word and replace a letter with a shape. I had an empty giant cheese ball container I saved to use as cat food storage. We have two cats and buy the really big bags of food but I hate trying to scoop cat food from the bag. So I always put it into ice-cream usually take 5 pails to store all the food. Well when my DS and I decided to have a junk food-movie night I saw the container and knew it had kitty food written all over it. (and eating the cheese balls wasn't too hard either!) And now it literally says Jack food and Willow food! Jack and Willow are the names of our 2 cats.
I replaced the 'a' in Jack with a cat from Meow cartridge and the 'oo' in food with fish from Paperdoll dress-up.
All the letters (both Jack's and Willow's) are from Mickey Font. To add color on the welded words (love my gypsy!) I first printed some rectangles of pattern - blue for Jack and pink for Willow on my imagine using the blossoms pattern cart, all on printable vinyl for easy adhesion to the plastic container.
For Willow's sign on the other side of the container, I used fish for the 'll' from Meow cartridge and in Food the 'oo' is a cut from Pumpkin Carvings.
I hope you feel moved to leave a comment and become a follower but neither is a requirement - I just like to hear from bloggy friends :) But I have to add that March is my birthday month and I kinda feel a give away coming, earlier this week I posted a give away - If you want a chance at winning your very own copy of My Memories Suite you need to leave a comment here.

Have a scrappy day!
