School is Going to Rock!
Hello Friends! It is Monday and that means it is time for the weekly Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. This week's challenge was selected by our sweet Jaren, who is a super-mom! Not only did Jaren just have a new baby (Congratulations Jaren!!), she also has other children she is getting ready for the new school year! With that in mind, Jaren chose the theme "Apple for the Teacher - Back to School" challenge. What a super-mom and super-crafter to have a new baby and have time to host a challenge!
I used two Cricut cartridges: Teddy Bear Parade and Autumn Celebrations, Cricut Design Space, and my Cricut Explore to create this card. However, this card could be created with any of the Cricut machines, as long as you own the cartridges. I used Bo Bunny Learning Cursive card stock, scraps from my card stock stash, and Close To My Heart washi tape. I also used a Stephanie Barnard Sizzix die for the card base.
I love this fun little girl bear with an apple for her teacher. Her name is Eve and she is off for her first day of school. She knows school is going to rock because just look at the fun uniform she is wearing. Any school with Polka dot pleated skirts has to be a fun time.
We are highly aware of back to school at my house. Teachers have to report for work tomorrow, Tuesday, and students return next week (I think). My daughter, son-in-law, son, and future daughter-in-law are all getting ready for Tuesday. I think the girls, my mom, my friend Beth, and I are all going for back to school pedicures today! Not that mom and I are going back to school, but we are always willing to go for a pedicure! My teacher children have all had adventures this summer so hopefully they are ready to settle in to a new school year.
I know I mentioned that I was going to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Charlotte, NC last weekend. I had a very nice time and saw a few of my blog readers - which is always fun for me. I will tell you about CKC later this week and I will share some photos.
I hope that you decide to join the Bitten By The Bug 2 Cricut Challenge this week. Create any type of project and use a Cricut cut apple on the project, then link up with us at the BBTB2 site. Be sure to tell us which cartridge(s) you used. The other challenge rules are on the sidebar at BBTB2.
Thank you for popping by today!!
