Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge- August 2011

This is my entry for the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge.  If you would like more information on the challenge please see the details at the bottom of this post. 

While I never win the challenges, I do enjoy the inspirations.  I have been in a bit of a crafting funk with the move and all.  It is a personal goal to do at least one crafty thing/ project per day for the next few weeks.  My fall semester begins on the 23rd and I want to get as much crafting in as possible before then.
