One of my memories from when I was a little girl is what sparked this creation today, so bear with me while I tell you the story. When my Mom and Dad stopped by K-Mart (that was the BIG store forty years ago), he would always come home with Whoppers. He brought home orange slices and circus peanuts, too, but I think he loved the Whoppers the most. Well, actually, he loved anything sweet. He would eat light at dinner because he always said he needed to "take a diet." But half an hour later, there he was having ice cream and graham crackers!
Well, let me bring you back to the present now. Last weekend, Jerry and I were at the Mall of America with Shane. (Sidenote: What a fun day!) We went into Caribou Coffee, and I saw this new ceramic mug they carry:
Adorable, right? I picked it up and was thinking about my Dad's Whoppers when Shane told me that I could make it with my Cricut. And he was right!
The milk carton and moustache are cuts on the Artiste cartridge. How fun is that? This is Later Sk8r paper, and I've simply rolled paper to make the straw. The sentiment and moustache stamps are from Perfect Fit-Dad, and the twine made a good finishing touch.
My dad passed away in 1993, but isn't it wonderful that the good memories can come to the surface just by walking into a coffee shop? On Father's Day weekend, you'll find this milk carton in our house filled with Whoppers!
