You also must leave me and the other wonderful ladies a comment in order to qualify for the prize. The grand prize will be awarded at the end of this month. You get one entry for each of the 4 blog hops during the series of Walt Disney Animated Movies Blog Hops during each of the Friday's in the month of March. So if you just choose one of the Fridays to attend, you would only get one entry but if you choose to attend all four hops during the month of March, you get a bonus entry since you came to all four hops, then you will receive 4 + 1 entries, which makes your chance of winning the movie go up with each entry.

just the blocks cut from a 2 x 2 board
assorted paper scraps
other supplies
the blocks painted 3 different colors
adding the mod podge 
adding the paper for each block
its all you choice which paper to use
i tried to use a darker paper with the lighter paints
(i also didn't paint the backs or bottoms)
I was to lazy...lol
all papers on and 2 layers of mod podge later
 cute the letter on my Cricut Expression 2 at 2.25 inched
used the font already on the machine
mod podged the letters on
2 layers of mod podge later and drying
