Cheerleading Bucket

Part of reason that I haven't been posting lately is that my daughter started cheerleading this month. She cheers for the Yucaipa Junior All American Football. We have practice three times a month and starting next month, a game every Saturday. The girls bring a bucket (originally a paint bucket) with them to games to keep their stuff in and sit on when they are not cheering. I wanted to share some pictures of the vinyl that I used to decorate her bucket. Everything was cut with my Cricut using a variety of cartridges, including Hello Kitty Greetings, Opposites Attract, George, Paper Doll Dress Up, Everyday Paper Dolls, and Plantin' Schoolbook. The only exception is the megaphones. The ones on this picture were a rub-on that didn't stay on. I cut new megaphones using the Everyday Paper Doll Cartridge. I used vinyl made by Cricut and also bought vinyl on e-bay because it came in the additional colors that I needed, blue and gold. I think the vinyl has stood up well, especially since it's being dragged around by a 5-year old in dirty fields.
