BBTB2: Cricut - Cool Swimmers

We take the grandkids swimming a lot during the summer, they are getting really good for not having lessons.  The little guy just likes to play in the water and look cute, but the older ones are jumping off the diving board and doing tricks.  All that fun sure wears them out and there is usually a nap following the swim.  

The saying "Cool Dude" is from Boys Will Be Boys, I added an S from the same cartridge to make it "boys".  The sun, ball, and pail are from Simply Charmed, and the squirt gun is from Family Album.  My background of diamonds was the free shape, and I just inked the edges dark blue.  Here is the file:

Our challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug2 is hosted by Michelle, and the challenge is "Summer Swim".  We haven't done this challenge before, and since summer is in full swing, I am hoping you will have a layout or card to share on the blog.  Link up your entry HERE.

BBTB2: Cricut - Tropical Paradise Found

This week it's my turn to host the challenge at Bitten by the Bug2.  Since it's summer and I've been dreaming of my adventure earlier this year to Ecuador, I thought I could incorporate my pictures into a theme.   Our theme is Tropical and/or Tropical Vacation.  Let's see those beautiful tropical palms, flowers, and Polynesian type of cuts on your cards or projects.  Link up your projects HERE. Maybe you may even get out the lawn chair and have a great tropical dream!  

Cuts used on this layout:
Sun: Luau
Palm Tree: Summer Love
Leaves: Dinosaur Tracks
Flowers: Pack Your Bags
Banner:1st Few Years
Words:  Life's A Beach
Sequins from Queen and Co.  Inking on all pieces.  Can you see the paper is a bamboo print?  Oh, how I wish I could spend a few days there again, just floating down the Amazon..........yes, paradise found.............

BBTB2: - Cricut - Happy Father's Day Harley Davidson Style

With Father's Day around the corner, our Bitten by the Bug2 challenge blog usually has a related challenge around this time of year.  This week you can post your Father's Day cards and projects on the BBTB2 blog HERE.

My son in law is a great daddy of 3 kids.  I usually make him a Father's Day card and buy him some select beers.  He is a Harley Davidson owner and loves to ride whenever he gets a chance.  I uploaded a shield representing Harley Davidson off the internet for this card.  The grandkids will write and color on the inside.  The motorcycle is from the Father's Day cartridge and the DAD is Cake Basics.  I popped up the motorcycle for some interest on the card.   Really easy in that it only took about 1/2 hour start to finish.
