Scrappy Saturday with the Bug Challenge #1

Welcome all my scrapbooking friends, to the very first

So, let me tell you a little about how my bestie Melissa and I can up with this challenge.. We both love to scrapbook, use our Cricut, and participate in challenges.. Yet, as we venture out into the world of challenge blogs.. We noticed that most of the Cricut Challenges out there were more geared towards card making.. Although, we like card making we love scrapbooking more.. So, while we were attending a crop one evening we started discussing how we wished there were more Cricut Scrapbooking challenges out there.. During our conversation we began to think that we may not be the only ones that were looking for this kind of challenge.. Then, after working out some details we decided that we would just host our very own challenge instead of waiting for someone else to do it..

Okay enough chatting, lets get on to the fun scrapbooking challenge stuff.. So, this is how the challenge will work.. We will post a new challenge ever other Saturday (one on my blog and one on Melissa's Blog ) and at the end of the month we will choose one winner.. So, if you enter both challenges you double your chance to win..

What a great idea! I'm more of a scrapbooker than a card maker. I use Cricut on pretty much every layout. Thanks for the challenge!

This was a lot of fun. I am just the opposite. Card making and such is usually what I do so this stretches my creativity. I have linked my project. I am new to blogging and having a lot of fun.
Thanks
