Cute animal

Happy President's Day Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge theme this week is cute animals, which inevitably leads me to create with two of my all-time favorite cricut cartridges- Create A Critter and Create A Critter 2.  I have several pieces of Create A Critter goodness to share!  As always, the designers over at BBTB2 have some wonderful projects to see and you can link up a project as well.

Sweet layout (red and white project)

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is a red and white project, which made me feel the Valentine sweetness....so you have my SWEET layout below.  It's all from the Artbooking cartridge (cut on the real dial size, since that cartridge has crazy weird sizing).  I added some touches of black for contrast.  For the challenge, the projects just have to include red and white and don't have to be Valentine.  You can link up a project over at BBTB2 and see all the designer's projects.

Love U valentine

Happy Monday!  I'm glad it's a new week, as we've been passing around the germs and I've been under the weather.  Hoping my immune system recognizes that we are starting fresh this week, lol! Today I'm sharing one of the Valentines I made for this year, since that is our BBTB2 theme this week.  I've been waiting for the right project to use the typewriter on the Flower Market cartridge and a sweet Valentine love note seemed just the thing!  There are some adorable Valentines to see over at BBTB2, so go take a look!

Love and Laughter valentine layout

Happy Monday!  It's a Valentine theme going at BBTB2 this week, since the big day is only a few weeks away.  I've got some Valentines to share over the next few weeks but today is for a layout since I know there will be some funny iPhone pictures by the kids on Valentine's day!  I used Create A Critter 2 because who could resist that Valentine owl charm?  Not me!  See more Valentine inspiration over at BBTB2 from the rest of the design team.

Ice Skate thank you card

Happy Monday!  It's been a busy weekend of work and I am so ready to have today off.   Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use ice skates on a project.  It so happens that the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships were in Kansas City last week and I have watched quite a bit of skating on TV.   Makes me wish I knew how to ice skate!  For my project, I made a thank you card, using the skates from the Family Album cartridge.  You can see the other skating projects over at BBTB2 and enter the drawing at the end of the month for some cricut supplies.

Snow Much Fun

Happy MLK Monday!  Is it cold and possibly snowy where you live (or recovering from an ice storm like KC)?  I am hosting the BBTB2 challenge this week and I selected snow fun as the theme for the week.  Projects celebrating any kind of snowy fun fit the bill for our challenge.  My teens still like to sled and build a snowman when we get a big snow and I used the Winter Frolic cartridge for my Frosty layout.  The design team has some super snowy projects over at BBTB2 and you can link up a new snowy cricut project there.  Don't forget, every project entry is entered at BBTB2 into a drawing for a pack of prizes donated by Cricut at the end of January!

Blue Hawaii layout

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is in honor of Elvis' birthday-make a project that references an Elvis song.  My layout is reflecting the Blue Hawaii album.  I used the Life is A Beach and Doodlecharms cartridges for most of this beach layout.  Since I'm not going to get to go anywhere tropical this winter and it's been super cold and wintery here in KC, this will have to give me that tropical vibe I am wishing for.  There are some fun Elvis projects up over at BBTB2 for you to take a look and enter the challenge for a chance at a prize!!!!


Cricut:
Life is a Beach-palm trees, leaves, flowers, sand pail/shovel, right side sand castle title, lifeguard stand, hula girl
