Pre-School - I want to be a Rock Star when I grow up

My grand-daughter started her 2nd year of pre-school this week.  Mommy asked her a few questions to describe herself and she stated she wants to be a rock star when she grows up.  Not quite 4 years old and she wants to be able to sing "Shake It Off" like a rock star.  

Emily from Mollie's Motifis hosting our Bitten By the Bug2 challenge this week.  Come take a look at the Cricut cuts featuring school supplies and icons.   Join the challenge at BBTB2.

-Sunburst background - from Artbooking
-School House - from 1st Few Years
-Crayons - from Recess
-Apple - from From My Kitchen, added 2015

BBTB2 - The Hula Dancers are Here

My granddaughter attended her cousin's 1st birthday party, complete with a luau theme.  The highlight of the evening was a hula dancer and her bongo playing companion.   As the picture shows, she was mesmerized by the dancing and costumes.   The girls as well as the guys each got lessons and showed off their dancing skills.

Our theme this week at BBTB2 is "Fruits of Summer" and Brenda is our hostess.  Won't you join in the fun and create a project with your Cricut and link it up to our BBTB2 blog?  Love to have you.  Aloha! from Bitten by the Bug 2.

Cartridges used:  Luau for Pineapple and 2 tiki men, Life's a Beach for words, center tiki man, and hula girl.  I used my Stampin' Up Blendabilities instead of inking.  I like how I could use several colors for the grass skirt and pineapple top as well as highlighting the flowers in the hula girl.

BBTB2 - Cricut Birthday Cake Card

Hello Friends.  Today I am sharing a birthday cake card with you.   Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use a birthday cake Cricut cut on a card or project. Our hostess, Melanie, would love if you join our challenge.   I used cuts from Pretty Pennants, Classroom December and Paper Lace.   I took the 'Happy Birthday' icon and put it inside a blank pennant.  Not quite sure about my color choices, but I had something in mind and just went with it.   The background is brown but I think it looks black in the picture.

I would love for you to link up your 'birthday cake' card to our Bitten By the Bug Challenge this week.  Follow the link and enjoy our designer's projects.

BBTB2 - High Chair 1st Birthday Deco

I have a one of a kind high chair decoration to share today.  I was asked to create a 1st Birthday decoration for the little one's high chair.    It was a great time.  I went bold and I love how it turned out.  It really only took about a hour to design and cut out, and another hour to ink and glue together.  It is held on with sticky tape.  As you can tell, the theme of the party was Hawaiian.  There were hula dancers, a BBQ, tiki bar, and we all dressed in the theme. The name Kaia means 'By the Sea' and she was so named after her parents love of Hawaii.   There are pictures of a few other items I created for the birthday girl.  I used "Life's a Beach" cartridge for most everything you see here.

Our hostess this week at Bitten by the Bug2 is the very talented Valentyna, and she has a challenge to create anything with a sea theme - sand,  beach, tropical.  How fun --- I knew I would like this one.  Join us by linking up your tropical project made with Cricut cuts at BBTB2.  With the summer vacations in full swing, why not create something that will make you think of paradise.
