Heritage-Sewing Machine

Good Morning everyone! I hope you enjoy what the designers have done this week. I challenged them to use the sewing machine from the Heritage cart.

I really like the Heritage cart. I love the trees and the vintage vehicles. If you don't have it already, you should check it out.

Please don't forget to join us in the challenge. If you don't have the Heritage cart, you can use a sewing machine or sewing themed cut from any other cart. Link us up to your project so we can view and leave you a comment. We love looking at your work! In 2-3 weeks, we'll pick a project and hand out a very cool "Project of the Week" BBTB2 blinkie.

It's also Blog Hop time!! YAY! Be sure to visit all the participating designers (listed below after the projects) for your chance to win some blog candy.

Thanks for visiting us each week!

October 31st Candle

Happy Monday, welcome to BBTB2, as we stand poised to greet Fall - it officially arrives tomorrow, I thought it fitting to request we all use a candle. For those that had the "October 31st" cartridge I asked that we use that one but any candle will do. Candles play such an important part in our days through the beginning of this season and into Christmas, adding light, warmth and atmosphere to our gatherings or just our solitary musings. So light a candle, grab a mug of coffee, hot chocolate or tea and scroll through our creations. Please join us this week with your own candle creations, we so love you playing along. Be Happy, Hugs

POW for Flamingo/Life is a Beach cut

The winner has been chosen for the Project of the Week featuring the Flamingo cut! First I must say, it really took me a while to make a decision because all of the projects were so great! I am so glad you all had so much fun playing along with our challenge! And now.....Drum roll please..........a great big CONGRATULATIONS to daveshunny, aka Sandi at Sandi's Creative Touch! I just loved everything about this creation! The flamingos are super cute with their non-pink patterned paper and those feathers! Oh those feathers! The Happy Birthday Cha Cha Cha made me laugh and imagine those darn flamingos doing the Cha Cha! The colors are just so fun, and I like the layered border punches.

So great job Sandi and Congratulations again. You are now the proud owner of a Bitten By The Bug2 blinkie! Can you send us your email (I didn't see it on your blog) and we will send you the blinkie.

Thanks to all for participating! --Melissa

Reader's Choice-Mini Monograms

Good morning everyone! Happy Labor Day!! This morning we bring you projects made from Mini Monograms. One of our readers asked us to use something from this cart and we were happy to oblige! I asked the team to use any of the numbers with any creative function for the projects.

I just LOVE what they came up with! I hope you do, too.

Let us know what you'd like to see us work with. The first of the month is always Reader's Choice.

Please join us in the challenge by linking up your project using Linky below. We love to see your work. At the end of two weeks, we'll pick one project as "Project of the Week" and send you a special blinkie to put on your blog and/or signature line.

Enjoy!! Heather
