BBTB2 Weekly Challenge! X 2

Hello Everyone and today is the weekly Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge and today my wonderful Design Team Sister Jeri picked the Cartridge Winter Frolic and we were to use a Ornament and the Phrase "Deck the Halls". Well I don't have that cartridge, I've been wanting it but haven't got around to getting it yet, hopefully soon, before Christmas is over would be nice, lol! Well I did get to go to Black Friday, Ken took me, he had never been to a Black Friday sale before so he decided at the last minute to go. I got to get the Jolly Holidays, Twinkle Toes and Four Legged Friends carts and I even picked up a Green E, not sure if I'll keep it but I got caught up in the moment so it's here in the house, lol! Well I was really surprised that our Wal-Mart here got any Cricut stuff because we don't have hardly any craft stuff here. Well they had all the carts and a bunch of E's. (We went back Sat. and they still had a BUNCH left except the Jolly Holidays cart, it seems like that was the big seller this year.) So since I didn't have the Winter Frolic Cart I used my new Jolly Holiday cart and made a 1 page layout. And I realized something as I was making the layout that I never realized about myself before, or at least I never wanted to admit it anyway, lol! 

I don't like to do phrases or weld words together!!! LOL! 
I don't mind if they are already done but to make one I'm not real crazy about it! That's why I did the "Believe" from Gypsy Wanderings instead of making a phrase "Deck The Halls" AND I like to have a shadow on my phrases, lol!   
Well I liked all the ornaments on this cart and used quite a few. Used some stickles and added a bit of bling, Also a couple of the Martha Stewart punches for the stripe strip and added a velvet red ribbon also. And I added another hidden jornaling box with the little presents on the lower right side of the layout. Isn't it funny, I don't come up with a good phrase but I can always come up with a unique jornaling spot, lol! 
Well Another challenge to play along with US at BBTB2, hope you can make it and remember if you don't have the Winter Frolic cart use Any cart with Ornaments and a phrase. You have a shot at that adorable little Winner Blog Blinkie! I am also going to enter this in the weekly Frosted Design's sketch challenge. I love the challenges at Frosted Design's each week, please, go check them out they are a very inspiring blog and many talented gals over ther also, lots of extra fun! And I was just curious, is anyone doing any Cyber Monday shopping?

This LO is AWESOME! I wanted to go to that sale soooo badly to pick up more cartridges, but I was too scared of the crowds! EEKS! You lucky girl!

Jeri said...

Super LO, Theresa. I love the bling you added to your ornaments. Don't you just love Jolly Holidays? I think it's my favorite Christmas cartridge ever. I've hardly been able to put it down since it came home with me from Walmart. What did hubby think of Black Friday? My husband wouldn't be caught dead shopping on Black Friday. He will barely go in a store when it's a normal day. Except for our weekly excursion for groceries, he likes to eat. Lucky for me, my sister-in-law was visiting for the holidays and wanted to go.

This is really a great layout! Love how your ornaments are hanging from the branch.

Great layout!! Love all the bling!! This was my first year to do Black Friday. DD wanted to go so I went so she wouldn't go by herself. Ours only had 6 E's and 18 of the lites. I managed to get 3 of the 4 I wanted. Wasn't able to get Jolly Holidays. DD ordered it online for me!! WootWoot!! :)
