Somebunny loves you layout

Happy Monday!  It's feeling like spring, finally!  The first daffodils have opened up their blooms in my flowerbeds and my boys were home on spring break last week, making my heart happy!  It's been warm enough to be outside and my husband and I went hiking in one of the state parks and soaked up the sunshine.  I even got to have a craft day with my mom and friends!  I think this week will be slightly less awesome....but you never know, right?  It may surprise me!  So on to crafty things....

Easter is coming up soon and our challenge over at the BBTB2 blog this week is an Easter theme.  All the images on my layout below are from the Cricut Artistry cartridge, including the adorable bunny.  I copied the general placement of the pictures on this layout from a design I saw somewhere, maybe in a CTMH catalog?  I've used this before on a layout several years ago, and now I can't remember where I saw it originally.  That's the beauty of a good sketch-you can adapt it to multiple projects with different themes easily.  The design team has projects shared over at the BBTB2 and you can link up a new Cricut Easter themed project there over the next two weeks.

Just a little bonus pic:
I had a craft day with my mom and several friends this week and we had a blast.  Mom and I were making thank you cards for my niece's wedding shower.  While we didn't use my cricut for these particular cards, I thought I'd post a pic anyway.  We cribbed all these ideas from Pinterest (gotta love Pinterest), so they are not original designs.  We made a total of 30 thank you cards using some of my Stampin Up goodies and had so much fun!  It's good to laugh with friends :)

happy to be hiking out in the sunshine in t-shirts!

St Pats Lucky Charmed layout

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is a St. Patrick's Day theme and you can also meet challenge requirements by just using the color green on a project.  I've made a St. Pats layout for the pics I'll be taking of Son#2, who will be conducting his high school marching band in a St. Patrick's Day parade, so he will be front and center in the pictures!  I used the Family Album cartridge for the clovers and downloaded a font from da fonts for the title.  Being able to use any font downloaded to my computer is another feature of my Explore Air 2 that I'm loving!  I'm telling you, I went crazy downloading fonts to my computer!!! I hope you will link up a project over the next two weeks and the design team has some charming projects full of the green for you to see over at BBTB2 for inspiration.
