May Day Preparations (and a contest that ends TODAY)!

Hey there!

As you may know, I am a Cricut Circle Member (VIP Charter in fact)! With that comes the opportunity for different challenges. For the month of April the challenge is to: Create a project of your choice and reuse, recycle or repurpose 3 items on your creation. Project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts. Because I work FABULOUS under pressure-I usually enter things close to the deadline (which now happens to be in a few hours). It also may have a bit to do with the fact that I am impatient-and I don't want to wait a month to know if I win! LOL Now, these challenges are NOT judges (unfortunately). So, because it is random, I also let my sweet 7-year-old daughter help!

May day is tomorrow (And I'm preparing the EXCITING launch of the Quick Quotes Blog). I thought it might be fun to challenge you! Can you spot the REPURPOSED, REUSED and/or RECYCLED items here (contents excluded) (hint: 4)? And the Cricut cuts?! Leave your answer in my comments and I will randomly choose 1 person to win a QQ prize package! YAY! BONUS: Tell me the cartridges the cuts were made from and you automatically win a little something! AND-if you go share this post on YOUR blog and FB you'll be entered twice even if you're WRONG! How's that for FUN?! Fine Print: You must be a follower to be eligible for this contest!

Of course, I stocked our May Day Basket with what I would want on MY door! LOL

This is a close-up. Aubrey wrote the sentiment, as this is hers to give!

Hurry-contest ends at midnight Mountain Time!

See you tomorrow with a QQ sneak-peek! MWAH

P.S. Scroll down for Friday Frills!

  2. Ohhhhhh, Brynnnnnnnnnn.....

    Guess who Randy at Random.Org picked to win my blog candy from the Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop????? Hmmmm.... could it be someone who "REALLY wants" the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge???? Hmmmmmm...... YES, it's YOU!!!

    Please send me your addy by PM to my e-mail account (below) and I'll get it out to you tomorrow. Hurry, hurry ... I try to keep my trips to the P.O. few and far between.

    YAY, Brynn!! And p.s. -- I am clueless as to which cartridges you and your sweetie used to make the May basket. But it's delightful that you did. And OF COURSE I'm a follower!!!

  3. What an interesting and fun project! I can pick out the recycled items but not the cart! I see a bottle cap, maybe packing tape or plastic packaging, a party hat, and that messy easter grass (I keep finding it all over the house...why do I continue to use it each year!!) I really should use the edible grass because of the amount of it my kids (or cats) end up eating each year! I don't know why I torture myself each year! Anyway, I was checking out the new DT for Thankful Thurs and I was already following you but I thought I would see what you've been up too! I'm excited to be working with you!

  4. Well, I admit to cheating and looking through the comments above. What a great idea and how fun that you and your daughter worked on this together!

  5. WOW! such a fun project and clever to use the top of a plastic bottle as a flower center!! I love it:) Have a Happy Mother's Day!!!


I am honored to hear your words. Thank you friend!
