BBTB2: Cricut It's a Zoo in Here

This week at Bitten by the Bug2 we are challenging our followers to us a Cricut penguin on their card or project.  It may have started out as a winter themed challenge, but for me, I had to make mine part of a zoo layout.  We have season passes to the Oakland Zoo and there are just too many photos to scrapbook.  These particular ones are of my granddaughter and my sister from several years ago.  I re-arranged this layout so many times, and I am still not really happy with it, but it's done.  It looked better on Design Space.

Join in our challenge this week and link up to the Bitten By the Bug2 blog.

Cartridges Used:
Zoo Title:  Life's a Party
Turtle and Frames:  Everyday Pop Up
Lion:  Artbooking
Penguin and Giraffe:  Noah's ABC Animals

Quilting: First quilt of 2018 - It's a Girl

I made a simple fleece quilt for a baby girl this past week.  My gifts were the only handmade items given at the shower, people just don't have the time or want to learn the skills to make things.  It really was an easy quilt.  Double layers, as a single layer is just too thin.  Her colors of the baby's room are pink and grey.  The theme is Bohemian, - dream catchers, arrows, nature, etc.  I'll post the album I made later this week.   Enjoy!

BBTB2: Cricut Mickey Celebrates with a 1 year old

Happy New Year Everyone!  I was sick, like the rest of the world, most of December and first week of January.  Last week I finally got back out my crafting and created 6 scrapbook pages and this birthday card for our Bitten By the Bug2 challenge.  My 3rd grandson will be turning one in a few weeks and we are also planning a trip to Disneyland!  Thus, my Mickey themed card.

Our challenge theme this week at Bitten by the Bug2 is "Birthday Cards".  I hope you will join in and link up your birthday cards that include a Cricut cut to the blog.  Here are the cartridges that I used:

1 in a circle:  Days and Dates
Mickey:  Mickey and Friends
Writing:  Disney Mickey (on top of a rectangle then contour)
Pop Dotted the Mickey
