Hoot! Hoot! Owl Challenge Winner

Maureen here to post the winner of last week's OWL CHALLENGE.  The winner is Linda, from Crafty Sisters Creations.   I just loved it the moment I saw it.  Something about the patterned colors and embossed background that she used for her wise ol' owl just caught my eye.   Great job Linda, thanks for playing along with our challenge.  Contact me at for your blinkie.

BEE-utiful Summer Challenge

Hello everyone, Susan here to introduce this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut challenge.  This week I asked the design team to use Cricut cut Bees on their projects, and they certainly rose to the challenge!!  Their projects are Bee-utiful!!!

You may notice that my project is missing.  I am following my own rules for the Design Team.  We have a Sunday evening cut off for submitting our weekly project and I did not meet the deadline.  I was not, however, just goofing off.  I had a BEEutiful layout planned but I just did not get it finished in time.  My hubby, my mom, and I made a 14.5 hour trip on Saturday to pick up my mom's furniture so that she could finish moving in with us.  Settling her this weekend has taken far more time than we imagined.

I hope you love the projects the Design Team created and that you tell them all what HONEYs they are by leaving a bit of love at their personal blogs!  

We would love to have you join the Buzz this week and join us with your own Bee project!  Just check out the rules on the sidebar and link your Cricut made project in below this post!

Hoot-Hoot It's an Owl Challenge!

Hi All - Maureen here to host this week's challenge at BBTB2.  I have been seeing owls everywhere - they are so popular this year.  My friend even decorated her daughter's room in owls.   I found 45 Cricut cartridges with an owl on them, some are fun and some realistic.   Who remembers the owl saying "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?"   My project uses almost a whole Costco bag of Tootsie Rolls.  Let's see what owl you choose for your submission to our challenge this week.  Remember to check the challenge rules on our sidebar.  Happy Crafting!
