BBTB2: Cricut - Home is where you are

By now my followers know we have an RV and take it out every so often for a long weekend and at least one long trip a year.  I don't have that many pictures of us and the RV, so I made a layout with a trailer so I'll be sure to get some photos to match the scrapbook pages!

I have to credit this layout to Pat Johnson, who shares many designs of hers on the Facebook Group "Cricut Design Space" (just search for her name in the files section). The file is HERE. It was an easy layout when you don't have to think up a design, choose colors, and then cut and assemble, some of those steps were done for me.   It is a perfect layout for our Bitten by the Bug2 challenge this week, which is to "use a WORD from a Cricut cartridge".   Michelle from Crazy Cricut Scrapper is our hostess this week.  She is the queen of layouts.  Join the fun and link up your Cricut inspired project.

I sent off this card to a long time friend that loves Halloween.  She decorates her whole house and front yard with hundreds of new and vintage Halloween decor.  Along with the card I sent 3 fabric pumpkins.  The same fabric was used to cover her vintage table and chairs (I helped with that project).  The pumpkin in the picture was grown by my son - 121 lbs, his biggest ever!  And the flowers are a gift from my sister.

Stems are from old pumpkins found at the pumpkin patch.  I added ribbon, moss, and $1 Store flower stems taken apart.

BBTB2: Cricut - Pizza Chef and Italian Grandma Layout

These were one of the best set of costumes that my husband and I came up with in a long time.  Thanks to my Cricut Explore, I easily made embellishments for the "Pizza Man" costume.  I made 2 slices of pizza, (the ones on this layout) that I put on a string and he wore around his neck, and a black paper mustache.  We went to a really fun party and had a great time acting the part to match the costumes.  I've held on to the pizza slices for 2 years but never made a layout until now.

Our Bitten by the Bug2 challenge this week is "Pizza and Beer" themed.  I knew right away that I had to make this Halloween layout.  Laurie, from Crafty Sisters Creations blog is our hostess and she must love her pizza and beer, I sure do,   Join our Pizza and Beer challenge and link up your project to the blog this week.  It's sure a fattening challenge - Cheers!!

BBTB2: Cricut - Fun at the Pumpkin Patch

Well - I forgot until now to post my project for Bitten by the Bug2, so here it is, better a little late than never.   Our challenge theme this week is "Pumpkin Patch, or The Great Pumpkin".  So get out the orange paper and get Cricuting.  I love making fall projects and cards.  Laura, from "Handmade Paper Crafts by Laura" is our hostess this week.  Come join the challenge and see the designers handiwork.

There were 20 mats of colors to cut with this seemingly simple layout, so it took some time.  I should have done a few print and cuts to save time.   I have some great pictures of the grandkids at the Pumpkin Patch from 2 years ago, but dang if I can't find them.  The ink on the mouth of the little boy bled, so I'm just going to say he was eating chocolate!
