A new Challenge and a Super Duper Blog Hop at Bugaboo.

Today is Challenge Day at Bugaboo Challenge Blog and we are having a Hop to celebrate our New Design Team Members. If you have come here from Tanya's Blog then you are in the right place.

The Challenge today is to use a Bug in your project. It could be an image of a bug, paper with bugs on it, Bug Buttons, stickers, or charms. Just make it a Bug of some kind. Then head on over to the Challenge Blog and link up your entry so we can enjoy it and you might win a prize. You can find all the details there for the Blog Hop too, and don't forget to collect your letters for a chance to win a prize too. There are some of the Design Team Members that have a letter (not so hidden) in their Blog. Also don't forget to leave comments on our blogs please (we all love that) and each of us will be picking a random coment-er to win a Bug image of your choice. Woo Hoo. So many chances to win today.

I made this first card using the Turtle/Ladybug image that you can find here. I also used the Ladybug Vase that you can find here. I colored the images with Copics and used Flower Soft on the centers of the flowers. MS ladybug punch. How cute are these little little bugs? These are new and you can find them here along with some other little cuties.

I picked up this paper today while I was out. It is by the Paper Company.
I use some more Paper Company for this and some embelishments that I picked up at the Dollar Store. This image is one of the new Bug Jars. I love all of them.
Here is another of the cutie pie Brat Bugs and I use some new Cosmo Cricket paper that I bought today. There are photos below.



I hope you have enjoyed the cards I made to share with you today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop. Now you are off to SANDYE's Blog.

I took a little trip to Tuesday Morning this morning and I was amazed at all the Scrapbooking supplies they had. I got these two sets, three Martha Stewart punches, 2 small TimHoltz alterable boxes and a Distress powder case and Grungeboard Numbers set and elements set for like 50 bucks. WOW how fun is this? This set has a 12" x 12" scrapbook papers, stickers, alaphabets, chipboard and vellum words.


This is a 3000 piece Scrapbook set by Cosmo Cricket. It has 2 8" X 8" scrapbooks and a ton of paper and chipboard, embelishments and alphabets. I love the colors.





I can't wait to get started on some layouts. I haven't done 8"X8" in a long time. I am just so excited.





Have a Wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see all the Challenge entries.
