Another acrylic frame with the Chomas Creations engraving kit!

Being that I have 4 kids, that means 4 of everything hanging in my house!  Don't want any little people mad at me hehe!  Here is my oldest's acrylic frame I got done!
I used a Design Studio file with Graphically Speaking to make all of the circles with the Chomas Creations engraving kit and Graphix clear plastic 12x12 sheets.  You can see those here... clear plastic sheets  These are sturdy enought to stand up in a frame without bending, but thin enough to fit through the Cricut!  I kept the blue plastic cover on the bottom of the plastic sheet, then put that on my Cricut mat, that way no glue residue would show up on the mat.  I then ran that through the Cricut with my pressure on max.  It just takes one time through (no need for multi-cut) to get this look!  It etches nicely into the plastic sheet!
I used Paisley for the hearts and title, and one thing is for sure, my daughter is a realy sweetheart, so this title was fitting for her!

You can see the little circles nicely in this pic!  And they do show up nicely hanging on my wall, but I have a heck of a time getting a good pic to really show the details!  Here is the whole layout in the frame, as you can see I've used pop dots on some of the hearts!

And here is the layout outside of the frame!!!

Don't worry, 2 more of these coming your way hehe!  2 kids down, 2 to go!

Love this. Can't wait to see the rest. I hear ya on the 4 kids. My oldest is 13 and my youngest is 4. The older one gets upset that he doesn't have anything on the fridge but the little one does. I just tell him color me something and I will hang it. He won't, he thinks teenagers don't color anymore. LOL Thanks for sharing. I really do love all of your projects.
