fairy tale card

Happy Monday! The challenge at BBTB2 for the next two weeks is a fairy tale theme.  My 25th wedding anniversary is next week and this challenge gave me the perfect idea for a card for my amazing hubby.  We are still very much in love and have three great kids and the years have flown it's truly my fairy tale happily ever after with everything I ever wanted!  While the pandemic has precluded doing anything big to celebrate, we are spending the day together and going hiking and getting our favorite takeout.  

For my card, I used a romantic flower frame from the Happily Ever After collection (the inside sentiment is from that collection also).  The front sentiment is from a collection called B is for Books, which I found after a search on cricut access and sized to fit inside the frame.  I think he will like it!  You can check out the design team's projects over at the BBTB2 site and link up a cricut project there.

Bunny layout

Happy Monday!  I hope you are all having a good week and enjoying some spring!  The challenge at BBTB2 for the the next two weeks is to make something celebrating Easter or including bunnies.  My family actually has a very beloved pet bunny named Bo, who belongs to Son#2.  Bo the bunny is very photogenic and likes to hang out with the fam, so I took this opportunity to do a scrapbook page of pics of Bo.  I found some cute bunny designs on cricut access for the bunnies in the corners.  You can see the rest of the design team projects and link your own project up over at the BBTB2 site.

Marching Band layout

Happy Monday!  I hope many of you are getting to enjoy some spring temperatures right now.  While it is raining today, there have been some warm sunny days recently and my daffodils are blooming!  It has upped my happiness quotient considerable!  

The challenge for the next two weeks at the BBTB2 blog is a music theme.  While I haven't gotten to attend any music events during the pandemic, I have pictures from Son#2's college marching band from 2019 that I decided to use for my project.  This layout used some big overlay cuts from the CTMH Artbooking.  The band helmet and trumpet are from Quarter Note and the Game Day title from the CTMH You Are Here collection.  I was so happy with how it turned out!  You can see the rest of the design team projects over at BBTB2 and link up a project of your own for the next two weeks.

anything goes

 Happy Monday!  During these quieter winter days, I've been enjoying some time in my craft room, catching up on some older photos.  The challenge theme at BBTB2 for the next two weeks is an anything goes theme, so I pulled some older photos from a day at Epcot touring the World Showcase out of the pile for my project.  It is modeled off of a layout I saw on Pinterest recently, although I can't find the exact pin to link.  The globe reminded me of Spaceship Earth, and the other items represent some of the countries in the World Showcase area.  I have such happy memories of visiting Epcot and I look forward to when I feel we can safely travel to Disney again.  You can see all the design team projects over at the BBTB2 site and can share a project there too.

Bon Appetit! Baking Cookies Layout

Happy Monday!  I hope you're staying warm where ever you are-this cold from the polar vortex is getting old!  I've spent a lot of time in my craft room  because it's literally too cold to do anything.  (And I have a space heater in there, lol!)  I'm enjoying the crafting time with no distractions, so I guess that's the silver lining.  

I'm hosting the BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks and selected the challenge theme Bon Appetit!  I wanted to scrap some pictures of our Christmas cookie baking and made the layout below.  I love how it turned out!  I especially love that kitchen mixer cut from Nifty Fifties for some reason!  I hope you will "whisk" up some food themed creations and share them over at the BBTB2 blog.

Valentine wall decor

 Happy Monday!  The BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a Valentine theme.  I have wanted a fresh Valentine themed decor piece for my entryway, so I made a cute wall hanging.  I found the saying on the Miss Kate Cuttables Holiday Phrases collection on cricut Access and sized it to fill a 12 x 12 frame.  You can see all the rest of the design team projects over at BBTB2 and link up a new project for the next two weeks!

Up to Snow Good layout

 Happy Monday!  The BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a snowflake theme.  We got a big snow while my kids were home on winter break and of course I took a few pics as snow forts were constructed!  For my layout, I used an older cricut image collection from Creative Memories that I bought years ago called Tis the Season for my snowflakes and snowman and a font called Just Marsha that I downloaded from da fonts.  Am I the only one who loses track of time browsing fonts?  LOL!!!!  Head over to the BBTB2 site where you can link up a snow themed project for the next two weeks and see the design team projects for inspiration.
