Man Up! Bag, Box, or Container for a Man

Hello Everyone, Jayne here and it's my turn to host this week's challenge at BBTB2. I live in a predominantly male household and so I have to come up with a lot of male themed projects. With this in mind I came up with ManUp! To make it even more of a challenge no cards or layouts but a bag,
box or a container instead and it must be made with your Cricut!

The Design Team rose magnificently to the challenge and have lots of inspiration for you.
It's only a few weeks to Father's Day so fire up your Cricuts and come and join in the fun.

Welcome Baby Challenge

Hello, my name is Caroline and I am very honored to host this weeks challenge.  Since I am going to be a grandma again very soon, I thought it would be great fun to make a Welcome Baby card, layout,  or other project.  I think baby cards or projects are so much fun to make and what could be cuter? 

This week I asked the design team to use any baby cut from the Cricut library to make a NEW baby project.  Please take a look at my design team sisters' projects, they are amazing, and then join us in this challenge by creating your own Welcome Baby project!  Please read the challenge rules in the sidebar before linking your NEW baby project to the link area below.   Again thanks for visiting the BBTB2 blog.
