PHi there ladies - Heather reminded me that I need to select a WINNER who gets the darling BBTB2 POW blinkie to put on her Blog ! The challenge was to use the Lizard from Life's a Beach ! There were so many cute entries it was really hard to pick just ONE project ..... SOOOOO ........... Scrapping Seahorse is the winner, for her darling 'Surfs Up' lizard creation !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE the texture she used and all the bright eye-popping colors are perfect. The pop-dots were great too as it allowed the lizard to be front and center !!!

POW - Dinosaur Challenge

I need new system. Obviously, this isn't working well to remind me of my responsibilities. I'm so sorry that I'm late picking the Project of the Week.

This system is worthless. There's not even a date on it. Duh! From now on, I'll be writing the due date on my planner. We'll never have this problem again, I swear.

So, without further adieu, here is the Project of the Week from the Dinosaur challenge.

I love how soft and cute this is!! Jean did a great job!
Congratulations, Jean!! I know you don't have a blog (but you should because your work is so cute) so maybe you can put your POW blinkie in your signature at the Cricut Message board.

Thanks again everyone for participating. We love seeing your projects!!

Life is a Beach...Flamingo challenge

Hello and welcome back to Bitten by the Bug2! Melissa here, and I am hosting the Challenge this week. I chose the flamingo cut from Life’s a Beach, but a flamingo from any cartridge will do. Now that I live in Florida, flamingos and all things “beachy” appeal to me. I thought it would be fun to use this cut as the summer draws to an end for many of you. There’s a catch though…I asked the designers to cut the flamingo in anything but pink! Any other color or pattern besides pink to really make it a challenge! I am really looking forward to seeing their designs, as I’m sure you are too, because these girls just ROCK with their clever, fun and funky creations.

Show us your creations by using McLinky below. And don’t forget to have a fabYOUlous week!
