Clowning Around for April Fool's Day

Hello everyone, Happy April Fool's day from the Bitten by the Bug 2 Design Team! 
I am Susan from Busy with the Cricky and BBTB2 here to introduce our first Guest Designer and our
April Fool's Cricut Challenge. 

We are starting a new feature here at BBTB2 where each month we will present the work of a fabulous Guest Designer.  Our first GD is Nadia Herbst-McConnell, from With Glittering Eyes.  Nadia is an amazing designer who creates the most intricate paper scenes.  Nadia also has a wonderful sense of humor as reflected in her April Fool's project here today.  Nadia fooled her daughter by giving her a "drink" complete with a straw that was actually a glass of jell-o!!  And of course she also gave her an adorable card featuring a clown bear from Teddy Bear Parade!

Because today is April Fool's day I challenged the Design Team to create a project using the Clown Bear from Teddy Bear Parade - or any Cricut clown if they do not have the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  I am sure that the Clown Bear is doing some serious clowning around today and would love for you to join us in this week's challenge. Create your own new Clown Teddy Bear project and link in below this post.  Be sure to check our challenge rules in our sidebar before you post!!! 

Are you ready for some April Fool's clowning around inspiration?  I hope you enjoy the projects created by our outstanding design team and Guest Designer, Nadia!
