Hello everyone today is Monday and that means BBTB2 weekly challenge. And this week it is to use the cute little owl from the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I haven't had any crafting mojo the last couple of weeks, lots of ideas but getting them down on paper has been pretty difficult for me, Don't have a clue why but...........
I think I've just got sooooo many things on my mind lately, and we've been trying to get the add on rooms finished! It sure has been taking FOREVER to get them done. Now I may have said this before but if anyone in your family (Hubs, kids, Dad, Uncles, Aunts, distant relatives, LOL, you get the point, anyone!) that does Drywall make sure you tell them Thank You from me (even tho I did it myself, and NEVER again!) It is the awfullest job in the world, and soooooooo messy! I don't think I will ever get all the drywall dust out of the house EVER! Anyway, it is almost done and I think that is why I haven't been able to concentrate on anything else. LOL
Well back to the BBTB2 challenge, We were to use the Owl and I did another layout, well actually two layouts. A Pink and Blue one (duh, like you can't see that, LOL). Basically both the same, just a few different papers. And yes I made all the flowers too. That's what took the most time.
Well I used the Storybook Cartridge, Straight from the Nest and George Carts. The Owl is from Storybook and cut at 5" with the shadow and did two different versions. The Whoo Loves You and the scroll are from Straight from the Nest and cut at 2". Now there isn't a shadow cut of the scroll with the border cut but I welded two together to get the shadow. You could use Design Studio or your Gypsy for that one. The flowers are from George cut at 1" and 2". The corner scrolls are from a Sizzlets die and the leaves and tiny flowers are a punch. I chalked everything again and of course added the bling. The paper is from some old DCWV stacks. I'm trying so hard to use some of the older things I've had for so long and put in boxes when we moved and haven't been able to get to and going thru the boxes now find things that I just had to have and never used. (Well I would have if I could have gotten to them, LOL) It's kinda like finding hidden treasure. LOL
Well that's it for the BBTB2 challenge for now. Hope you can play along and remember if you don't have the Storybook cartridge you can use ANY owl. There are ALOT of them on lots of the Cricut carts, there's even one of the new Lites that is ALL Owls. So have fun with it. Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave me a comment. I so appreciate all the wonderful comments you all leave me and taking time out of your busy days to drop me a line! Thanks Again and have a Wonderful Day!

My inspiration for the name of my blog, the love of Flowers and a "Blossoming" new way of life here in the country. I wanted to create this blog to share some of my pictures, card and scrapbook creations, and just about anything else I can think of. I was also tired of being computer illiterate and was bound and determined to learn how to use this. So it's still a work in progress but, aren't we all!
