Bobbing for Apples

Hello friends! Welcome to this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. My dear Design Team sister, Emily, is hosting this week's challenge. In a seasonally appropriate challenge, Emily has asked us to use APPLES in this our projects this week.  

I loved going to the apple orchards as a child, eating fresh picked apples and drinking fresh cider with donuts!  Michigan's orchards were a star on the list of must do fall activities when I was growing up.  And every fall festival had a bobbing for apples station!  

My layout for this week, Bobbing For Apples, is all about those fun apple picking and fall festival photos.  I only used two Cricut cartridges on this layout, Art Philosophy for the the scalloped border, and basic shapes for the designer paper cuts and the photo mat layers.  I used an SVG file for the tile, apples, and apple bobbing mice.  I must say that the little mouse on the lower right corner looks like he may have eaten too many apples.  His expression tells me he may have a tummy ache!

My Design Team sisters have created some fabulous Apple projects to inspire your fall crafting.  We would really like for you to join in our challenges at Bitten By the Bug 2.  Just click on Bitten By the Bug 2 and you can see all of the team projects, as well as follow the link and add your own new apple project!

  1. Thes mice are just adorable. Every bit of the layout is just adorable! My friend and I went to the apple orchard just a couple days ago. The apples were so good and so were the cider donuts!

  2. Those layered mice with the beautiful eyes always make me say 'ahhhhh'. Great choices, especially the little rear end view! Your layout makes me want to go to Apple Hill here in northern CA. apple picking, crafts, wine, music, etc. Love this time of year.
