Happy Monday! It's so nice to have my computer repaired so I can create with my cricut again! The challenge at BBTB2 for the next two weeks is to have your project incorporate something recycled or up-cycled in some way. My project scraps some road trip photos from a recent trip to visit extended family. I used an old map that I found under one of the car seats as part of some of my cricut cuts. While you can't really see it here, the part of the map under the road trip sign actually includes our destination! Check out the design team projects and share your project over at the BBTB2 site!

Happy Monday! The cricut challenge theme over at BBTB2 for the next two weeks is For the Guys. I made a Father's Day card for my Dad, using one of the the cards in the Happy Father's Day card image collection. I was planning to also make him a birthday card too for this challenge (his birthday is next week), but my computer died and is in the shop getting repaired....so sadly I can't use my cricut until I get it back! This card was quick and simple to assemble and I thought would remind him of our family trip to Yellowstone recently with the mountain/tree imagery on the card. You can see all the design team projects over at BBTB2 and link up a masculine themed project there as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Happy Monday! It's been a whirlwind last few weeks! We got to see Son#3 graduate from high school and we also celebrated the five graduations in the extended family, which was so fun! Then it was vacation time....I returned yesterday from a multi-generational family road trip to Yellowstone, the Badlands, Custer State Park, and Mount Rushmore. We had lots of adventures, saw a lot of truly amazing sights, and enjoyed getting to hang out together. Now it's back to everyday real life :)
The BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a county fair theme. I scrapbooked some old pictures from a day at our local fair. I used the Ferris wheel and font from the You Are Here image collection to make my pages. The design team has some great projects you can see over at the BBTB2 site, where you can link your project up as well.

Happy Monday! One graduation down, one to go! It's been an emotional rollercoaster for sure. My college senior graduated summa cum laude from my alma mater and I had tears of pride and joy watching him walk across the stage to get his diploma last weekend. Our whole family, his fiancee, and grandparents were able to be there on his special day, thanks to the reductions in covid cases with vaccinations and capacity restrictions removed. It was an amazingly wonderful surprise! We have one graduation to go, with my youngest graduating from high school this week.
It's a flower challenge over at BBTB2. Everything is in bloom outside and I am loving it! Creating with flowers always makes me happy! I used these lovely blooms from the Artistry collection for the card I made for Mother's Day. I got my mom some real flowers too, but moms can never have enough flowers, right? I had to play with the layers a bit to get two shades of pink plus my green leaves showing, but love how it turned out!

Happy Monday! I'm hosting our BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks and selected a graduation theme. It's very personal, as I have two kids graduating in the next few weeks... Son#1 graduates from college with degrees in Economics and Political Science and is going to work for the Federal Reserve Bank. Son#3 graduates from his high school's International Baccalaureate program and is headed to college in the fall to study computer science and cybersecurity. I'm so proud of them both! So needless to say, lots of photos will be taken and I need some scrapbook layouts!

Happy Monday! The BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks involves stars: either a Star Wars May the Fourth Be With You themed project or you can go with just stars. I chose to go with the basic stars, as I'm making some scrapbook pages for an upcoming family trip to Yellowstone this June. The left side page is inspired from a layout made by Jennifer Smith that I saw on Pinterest and I added a second page. I used several different collections from CTMH for the layout, including stars from the Aurora collection. You can check out the design team's projects over at the BBTB2 site and link up your cricut projects there too.
