Snow Much Fun

Hi everyone, it's Michelle here.  Is it cold and snowy (or icy) where you live like it is here in Kansas City?  I am hosting the BBTB2 challenge this week and I selected Snow Much Fun as the theme for the week.  Projects celebrating any kind of snowy fun fit the bill for our challenge.  The design team has some cold frosty fun for you to see below and you can link up a new cricut project.  

*Don't forget about our giveaway drawing at the end of month - each project linked to a challenge this month enters your name into a drawing for a prize box donated by Cricut!*

Winner - Project of the Week - Anything New for 2017

We have a winner for our first Cricut challenge of 2017!!  Our challenge was pretty wide open - with the theme of anything NEW - a craft related item, the word New, or a new Cricut cartridge.   I really liked one in particular out of all the great submissions this past week.   Cheryl, from Even More Scrapping, submitted a layout of the New Year's Day Rose Parade, adorning her layout with Cricut flowers.   I love her ability to show off her skills as well as pretty pictures.  Congratulations Cheryl.  Happy New Year Everyone!

Don't forget that the Cricut folks have donated a great prize package for Bitten By the Bug2's challenges.  All you need to do to be in the running is submit a project/card/layout to our Link-up during our January challenges.  See Monday's post for the details!      ----Maureen

Happy New Year 2017 everyone!   Are you off to a good start?   I've already been cleaning out a few closets to make room for all the new stuff I can't live without.  Some of the things in my spare room closet haven't been touched for many years - so it's out with the old and in with the new - don't you agree?   That leads us to our first challenge of the year - We want to see anything that symbolizes the New Year or something New to you.  It can be anything NEW - a NEW Cricut Explore, a NEW project or technique, a Cricut cut with the word NEW in it, etc.  Link up your picture below, we love to share our craftiness with you as well as see what you can create.   Enjoy --- Maureen
