No Internet last Week Bummer!

I am sorry if you came here last week to check out my challenge for Paper Cutz Challenge and did not find it but I was having technical difficulties with my Internet connection.  But my great and wonderfullly talented hubby got it going for me.   I wanted to share my Layout with you even though it was to be posted last week.
The challenge was to use ladybugs, bees or butterflies.
The ladybug was made on my gypsy and with my cricut.  My two favorite craft ideas. 
I cut it from Doodlecharms at 3 inches.  Love bug is from the creative critter and cut at 1 1/2 inches.
I added the frame and the ribbon and used ladybug and heart stickers on it
The heart paper I got at Joanne's along time ago.  The background sheet is from DCWV Shimmer stack.

So glad my internet is back and I can share with my crafty buddies once again.

Lots of Love Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,

Welcome to the Lots of Love Blog Hop!
This hop will be showcasing 14 different designers and their "love" inspired projects.
If you are coming from The Crafty Scrapper  you are on the right track.  If you are just visiting and would like to join the fun hop on over to Courtney's Blog;  Krafty Keezerz .  We hope you sit back relax and have a great time hopping along with us.  We also hope that you feel some love inspiration this Valentine's weekend!

For the hop I decided to get busy and start on the scrapbook for our wedding.  It has be 3 years on the 14th of this month..
We were married in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.  We had the preacher come to the cabin that we rented for the week.
This is a page of us saying our vows.
It is an 8 x 8 scrapbook page.  I used paper from DWVC, I just love their paper. 
I cut the heart from the Cricut cartridge Twinkle Toes at 4 1/2 inches. And added the sticker over our picture.
The Our Wedding banner was cut also from Twinkle Toes at 1 3/4 inches and then I put the sticker on it.
The 14 Feb. is a Rub on from Reminisce. Which is rubbed on a circle I cut from the Sugar and Spice Cartridge at 2 inches. 
The Our vows is a sticker that I put on a scallop circle that I cut from the Sugar and Spice cartridge at 2.34 inches using my gypsy.
I used pop dots to layer all the items on the page. I also added a ribbon under the heart and the circle.

I hope that you are enjoy the love in the Lots of Love Blog Hop.  Your next designer is Amy of Amy Designs.  So hop on over and see her talented work.

Paper Cutz Challenge # 77

Let's keep ours hearts away this week.

The challenge this week over at PCC is to make a card, LO or craft project for Valentine's Day, but
WITHOUT using any hearts. Use any color you would like.

This week I choose to use a stamp on my card.  A few weeks back I joined a swap to where you swapped stamped images.  I got some really cute images which I plan to share in the coming months.  This Stamp was from The Greeting Farm stamp /CTMH.  My swap friend Janell sent it to me.
I colored my boy with gel pens.  I love to use them.  I'm not good with markers.  I have tried but my projects never turn out.
I but on a ribbon that says Be Mine/ I got it at the Dollar Store
Then I made a whirly from some two sided paper, added some stickles and a brad.(that I won from a blog hop)
Then I added a blue sticker with a gem.  (which I got in a bottle swap)
The card is a shiny copper card stock that I got at Walmart
The pattern paper is from the Be Mine stack by DCWV
I love to do blog hops and swaps.  You get so much super cool and different things when you do these.

I hope that you all come on over to Paper Cutz Challenge and show us your talent and great project.
