cute critters Here Kitty layout

Happy Monday!  I managed to get poison ivy (even around my eye!!!) while working in my yard last week....the steroids to treat it have left me unable to sleep.  But the silver lining is that I have been sorting and rearranging my craft area, which has needed to be done for a long time!  It's just so much more fun to craft than clean that I don't get around to it often enough!  I've realized I really have a lot of paper I'd forgotten about and am excited to be crafting in a more organized and tidy space.

Our BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a cute critters theme.  We have taken a ridiculous amount of iPhone pictures of our crazy cat, so I knew my project would involve making a cat themed layout!  I used the Meow image collection for all the fun cat images and phrases.  Fortunately I had some cat themed background paper in the stash that I found during the cleaning process!!!   The rest of the design team has some very cute projects over at BBTB2 and you can link yours up as well.

July layout for stars challenge

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good 4th of July!  My family celebrated at home, smoking some ribs and watching Hamilton.  I highly recommend Hamilton- it lived up to everything I had heard about it!  We've decided watching it as a family will be a new July 4 tradition!

Our BBTB2 challenge for the the next two weeks is to use 3 different sizes of stars on a cricut project.  My scrapbook layout below is for photos I took at home on the 4th.  We grilled, swam, played with sparklers, and watched Hamilton (which Disney released on the 4th).  I used two Miss Kate Cuttables collections, Summer Memories and Chill Out, for all the cricut cuts.  I fell in love with the July title with all the stars!  The designers at BBTB2 have some great star projects to dazzle your eyes and you can link one up too.  I hope you all have a good week and stay well!
