BBTB2 Blog Hop and Baby Carriage Challenge!

 Hi Everyone and Happy Monday! Well it's the end of the month and that always brings a Blog Hop over at Bitten By The Bug 2 and today is just that day! Now if you got here from the So Talented and Sweet Susan's blog your on the right track but you can always start at the BBTB2 Blog if you ever get lost.
Well today Carole picked our challenge for the Hop and she picked the Baby Carriage from New Arrival (and Oldie but a Goodie!) Well I don't have that cart (gasp!) so you know the rules, if you don't have that cart you can use any cart with a Baby Carriage on it and I used Kate's ABC's, and Nursery Rhymes for the saying. I just got the Kate's ABC's cart at Christmas time and all I can say is "Why did I wait so long to get this, lol!" (then of course I had to get Nate's ABC's too, lol!) It is such a Cute cartridge and you will be seeing more from me using it! Well I finally made me a Layout (yes, it's been awhile for that too, lol!) I had some fun with this and used some of the new papers and tools that I got for Christmas also. The border is punched with the Martha Stewart punch, the flowers are handmade with a couple of EK Success punches and the butterflies are another MS punch. And of Course the Star of the layout is my Darling Grand Daughter Molly the day she was born! Isn't she Gorgeous!!!! She's 8 years old now (and still Gorgeous!) So you can see I'm a bit behind on scrapping my pictures, lol! (Shame on Me!)    
 Here's a close up of my Cute Little Molly and the cutie with the Baby Carriage (it's kind of hard to see that cute little pom pom trim on the bottom of the little ones dress!). The image is cut @ 5" and you know me, it's got some layers and pop for some added dimension. 
 (Had to sneak in another close up of Molly, lol) and also the pretty flowers with some added bling (of course, you know me, lol!) 
 The saying is from the Nursery Rhymes cart cut @ 2 3/4". Did a bit of doodling and added another MS butterfly ready to drop off a cute little bundle!
And as I was creating I decided to make a card to have on hand because you can never have enough go to cards for those baby showers that seem to sneak up on you, so now I'm ahead of the game (for at least one card, lol!) This image is cut @ 4" and a few MS butterflies and another handmade flower added to my tag shaped pre-made card. 

Well I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and of course the Blog Hop! If you started here don't forget to hop over to the BBTB2 blog and start at the beginning but if you've already been hopping your next stop is going to be the Amazing Julie's blog. And don't forget to enter our challenge, just link up with the linky on the main blog, you have two weeks to enter and you can win our Cute POW (Pick of the Week) Blinkie to add to your blog, along with bragging rights, just remember it had to be a NEW project (no back linking) and we would love to have you add a link to the BBTB2 blog, (others may want to join in)! =]  
 Now I have some blog candy I'm giving away, (I probably throw some more goodies in there, I've been doing some cleaning, lol) all I ask is that you be a follower and please leave me a comment telling me what projects or things you would like to see me post! I kind of feel like I'm in a rut and maybe you all can spark my curiosity to new endeavors or give me some new ideas or trends that are out there that I'm not aware of. Thanks in advance and enjoy the hop!

((Hugs)) and Take Care!
Theresa

What a gorgeous layout! (the baby too!!) I love the pom pom trim on the little girl's dress!

I just got the Kate and Nate's ABC's for Christmas too and haven't done anything with them yet. I'd love to see projects with both carts for inspiration.

Theresa what a gorgeous layout! I love everything about it. Don't feel bad about being behind on your scrapping, I am the same way with my son. He'll be 11 soon and I only have him scrapped through age 3.
Thanks for the chance at winning some super sweet candy.
