3 shades of green

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use 3 shades of green.  I happened to have this Doodlebug print paper with several shades of green in the stash, which got my layout started.  Son#2 will be performing with the marching band in the Snake Saturday St. Patrick's Day parade next month, so now I'm ready for the pictures!  I used the Flower Market cartridge for all the cuts-loving the wreaths on this cart!  Check out the BBTB2 designers projects and you can link one up as well.

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 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!
