BBTB2 Challenge - Bugs!

Hi all!

Anyone else dying of spring allergies?  OMGosh all 3 of us are officially miserable!  However, I am excited this morning because I also woke up to spring babies!  If you have read my blog for awhile you know we foster rescue cats - specializing in pregnant ones and sick kittens.  I got this momma 6 weeks ago and she has been getting huge so I knew it was going to be a big litter and this morning she came strolling up for her breakfast looking considerably trimmer.  It took a bit of searching but I discovered SIX new teeny babies!  SO HAPPY!

In honor of the arrival of spring the challenge on Bitten By the Bug 2 this week is bugs/insects of all kinds.  I found these cute pics of Pez making faces from about 3 1/2 years ago and thought they would be perfect for a cute as a bug layout.

I used a ton of cartridges on this one and had lots of fun designing each little component - Serenade, Sweet Treats, 3D Floral Home Decor, Garden Soup, Elegant Edges, Sentimentals, Just Because Cards, Paper Lace 2, Create A Critter, 

Here are a few up close shots.  Even been remembering to add some cuttlebug embossing!

Once I had all the pieces glued I sort of scattered a few pearls and rhinestones around a bit.  These flowers from Sweet Treats are my all time favorite - I just love them!

And now I am off to inspect each new little baby closely to make sure they are healthy!  I hope you join us at BBTB2 for our challenge this week!  We would love to see your projects!

I was inspired by the following challenges:


  1. This is amazing! AND she is adorable! Thanks for sharing it with us at Tuesday Throwdown!

  2. Absolutely an adorable Layout! The pictures of Pizza are so cute, too. I love the title and all the beautiful flowers. Congratulations on the new baby kitties!

    1. Autocorrect really messed up my post. So sorry, I know her name is Peza. Ugh!

  3. Congratulations on the new cats. Your layout is absolutely adorable. I love all the scalloped edges and the bright colors to show off that great big smile. You always have to laugh at a toothless grin

  4. She is as cute as a bug. You'll really cherish those shots of her little toothless grin. Really nice page!


  5. All the scallops and super cute images make for a fabulous layout! Your daughter is adorable and these photos ARE perfect for this page. Hope your allergies are lessening--I feel your pain!

  6. THIS, my friend, is simply OUTSTANDING!! I love this layout. Your cuts are fabulous. And of course Pezza continues to be just a doll! But seriously - this layout may be my favorite ever!!
