Well, guess I missed linking up to the Fantabulous Cricut challenge...

Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Tag It

                              This week our challenge is to create a tag and include
                        some type of bling on it. I consider bling anything that is shiny,
                                          but you interpret it as you see fit.

Sorry Pic is a little blurry.
I have made a tag with my daughter's initial on it to add to a scrap page.

Cricut E2: Storybook 
 The B was cut from The Glitter Stack at  2.5 in
The bottom layer was from pg 72 cut at 4 in.
Middle layer Pg 73 cut at 3.5 in
Top layer pg 72 cut at 3 in.
I loved the detail in both Tags, so decided to use them together in a layer.
I then glued the BLING on as I do not have a jewel setter using Glossy Accents clear deminsional embellishment glue.

Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #7: Back to Basics

                                                 Whimsical Wednesday Challenge (#7).
This week the challenge is to create a card/project that is cricutless. In addition to not using the cricut, we had to use some type of "old school" embellishment (sticker, rub-ons, chipboard, glitter...)

So I pulled out some Sesame Street Stickers that I have had bought on Ebay about a year ago.
I have some perfect pictures of my son as a toddler eating some oreo cookies...chocolate all over his face!!
YUM YUM!!!!!!  Can't wiat to add them to this page.

I also already had several pieces of cardstock cut into different size squares that I threw on this page.
It turned out better than expected.  Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Throw Back Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time

Here are the details for this challenge:
***Use "DOODLECHARMS"cartridge OR if you don't own this cart, feel free to use any other Older cartridge & PLEASE incorporate the color BLUE somewhere on any project of your choice!

OOPS!!  I was trying to scrap and watch my 18 month old niece at the same time and forgot to incorporate blue :(  I do not have time to make another card. My thoughts were to make this card for a friend's wedding for this summer. I wanted to cutlebug the hearts, but did not get the chance to complete that either.
