Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop DAY 2!!!!

Celebrating Cricut Craftin Grammys 1 year 


We're so happy you could join us for the 2nd day of the hop celebrating the one year blogaversary of Cricut Craftin Grammy. We have asked a few of the Cricut Messageboard friends as well as the Design Team friends (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, Lasting Memories and Sweet Sassy Diva ) to join her in this two day Blog Hop. The participants are allowed to share anything creative they wish to share using a Cricut (or other die cut machine if they do not have a Cricut.)

Overall Blog Candy
I hope you will hop along with us and leave comments along the way. For the overall blog candy you need to leave a comment on each blog each day.

If you leave a comment on all the blogs both days your name will be entered into the Random drawing twice. The random winner will receive a $25 gift card from their choice of Michaels or Joanns.

This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to check out both days so you don't miss any creativeness. Because there is a large number of participants I will give you until January 30th to post your comments for the two days of the blog hop.  Thanks for joining us!

Let's get hopping!! If you've hopped over from STACIA, then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Suzanne's Blog

For the hop today, I've created a single page layout of some older photos of my son at 2 years old.  I am working on my kiddos scrapbooks as a goal for 2012.  Before I know it, they will be graduating from High school and doing domestic things.  Scary!!  At the age of 2, this is my son mastering the mini jump shot.  He is now 5 and we are signing him up for basketball next year.  Can't wait to see what he can do.

I just have 2 cuts using the Cricut.  Both are from "Sports Mania."  I was having trouble with my blade, so kept it to the basketball hoop and ball.  Bad timing for the darn blade.

Supplies Used for my layout:
Stampin' Up - Hoppy Memories Simply Scrappin' Kit
Doodle Bug - alpha stickers
Cricut - Sports Mania cartridge
Stampin' Up - Star Punch
Provocraft - Bradlets
Random, old small star punch

And don't forget... I have some blog candy too!  I love that you all are stopping by!  Thank you so much!  A HUGE Welcome to all of my new followers!

Just leave a comment on today's post or yesterday's post for 1 entry to win.

Simple as pie!! I will draw the winner on Monday, January 30th.
