April Showers

I'll take April showers over March snowstorms! BBTB2 is challenging us to use an umbrella -- for anything from baby showers to rain showers. I used a simple cut, an umbrella, found on Designer's Calendar. And a fun opportunity to use my new Stamping Up See You Later Alligator stamp set.

Spring Flowers

Is it safe to say "Spring has Sprung?" When I made this Pop-Up Card, we still had snow everywhere! We still have patches left, but pretty soon, we will be planting some real flowers. In the meantime, I had fun making some Flower Shoppe flowers using my cricut. Head over to BBTB2 for the Flower challenge to see what the Design Team has come up with and show us what you can create!

Music Speaks Challenge

This week BBTB2 challenges us to a "Music Speaks" project, and I have lots of school concert pics that need to scrapped! The problem is, they are not zoomed in and close up. What's more, you can hardly see my boys as they sing with their classmates...So I used my small circle punch to make them centered in the pics...and needed more pics that I did not I filled up the space with some coordinating patterned paper as filler. I have thought of getting the Quarter Note cartridge, but until one of my boys picks up an instrument, I will settle for Calendar's "concert" and note.

Head over to BBTB2 to what the talented Design Team members did for this challenge!

St. Patrick's Day Challenge

On the 17th, everyone is Irish, even this Polish and German American girl...BBTB2 is challenging us to go green and create something in honor St. Patrick's Day. I used my DCVW glitter stack and love how these bright colors pop on the white background. Now all that I need are pics of the boys!

I love this little guy too:

What's Your Favorite Cricut Cartridge?

So, Mayra from BBTB2 wants to know what's your favorite cartridge...and challenge you to use it in a project this week! Mine is one of the limited edition, seasonal cartridges...Indie Art... I love it even though I can't use it often. How often can you use "heartbreaker," "hard core," or skulls? I love these pictures of my sons -- on the beach, waiting for 4th of July fireworks to begin. With those eyes and the other one's smile, "heartbreaker" is perfect.

You can see by the glare on the LO that this paper was hard to photograph. Super glossy and reflective, I love it!

Luck of the Irish

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #45

St. Patricks Day is one of my most favorite holidays. I have very fond memories from childhood having a big corned beef and cabbage traditional dinner with my family.
Hope you have the luck of the Irish with you on this St. Patricks Day :)
