Birds of a Feather - And a Blog Hop!

Carole chose the bird cage from "Straight from the Nest" for the challenge at BBTB2 this week. I just love this cut and the design for this page just fell into place with it. The picture is me and my neice. She reminds me so much of myself when I was her age.
Come join us for the challenge this week and you could win the blinkie for your blog.

What a Catch

Shelly chose the fishing boy from the "A Child's Year" cartridge as the challenge at BBTB2 this week. This cartridge is filled with tons of great silhouettes, which seem to be the "thing" right now. This cut went perfectly with this picture of the catch of the day. Poor little fish couldn't even fit the entire cricket in his mouth.

PP - BG Lime Rickey, and BG Origins
Title - Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge

Come join us this week for the challenge. If you don't have this cartridge, you can use any fish from any cartridge.

A "Lovely" challenge

Susan chose the challenge at BBTB2 this week, and she chose to use a lacy heart and a heart border. I cut my lacy heart and used it as a mask with my glimmer mist. I have several bottles of the stuff and almost never use it, so I decided to give it another try. I've found the more I use it, the better I like it.
I dug deep into my stash to create this page. The number tiles, playing cards, brads, butterfly, and love letters are at least 9 years old. And lookie there, that is mulberry paper! I need to stop being such a scrapbooking hoarder and actually use up my huge stash of goodies. I challenge you to do the same!
