BBTB - Flourishes!

Hi all!

A super quick drive by posting as I am knee deep in finishing making Pezza's Halloween costume AND in charge of her school's Original Works artwork ordering program (which means sorting through, preparing and organizing several hundred orders ACK!)

I am the host this week over on the Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge and I chose flourishes.  I never get tired of them and there are oodles to choose from in the Cricut Library.  I made a sympathy card for my aunt:

BBTB Challenge - Football

Hi all!

I am feeling the whirlwind of the holiday season - anyone else?  Seems once school starts I don't find time to breath until sometime in January!

This week's challenge on Bitten By the Bug is football.  I figured this was the perfect opportunity to scrap some cheerleading pics of Pezza:

I chose to concentrate on page 1 - I had a lot of pictures and it can often be tough to fit them all in a layout and still have room for the fun part of designing elements to go with them.  I picked her best pics and focused on some fun die cuts for page 1 and then put the rest in a grid on page 2.

The adorable little cheer leader and the matching title piece came from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

The cool football themed tiles came from the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge.

I hope you can join in our challenge.  Jump over to the main BBTB Blog and see the other neat things done by the design team!

BBTB Challenge - Frames

Hi all!

This week's Bitten By the Bug Challenge is to use a frame on your project.  Since we are officially in October I thought I better get started on some Halloween cards!

There are TONS of frames in the Cricut library and ALOT of options for Halloween ones.

This Spiderweb frame came from Photo Fun - Holiday Memories.  You could put ANY of the Halloween images in it - I have two more already cut and ready for me to finish.  The Boo is from Phrases.

This framed ghosty came from Happy Hauntings and there is a whole bunch of different ones to pick from.

With all the frame options Cricut has this is an easy challenge!  I hope you can join in.  Be sure to head over to the BBTB Blog and check out the other great projects by the Design Team!
