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!

But first, let me announce that the Friday Frills Design Team has expanded! Cheryl Caldwell-Nyboer will be joining us full time and these special ladies will join us as guests:
Cherie Goyer and last, but certainly NOT least:
Ladies, thank you for applying! I am honored to have you!
The first project you're viewing here is a 2 page 'Cherish' layout by Brynn. Created with a light color scheme of We R papers and embellishments, it is perfectly finished with cameos, lace and ink!
These tags were created by Amy. She began 1 and just couldn't stop-vintage is kinda her thing!
Ruffles and rolled rosettes really set this one as a favorite.
Gorgeous butterflies and french script.
Fancy cut beautiful vintage girl-with wings of course!
And Kris created the following vintage tag as well! (Ummm-they forgot to tell me it was tag themed. LOL)

All of the papers and embellishments are from Bazzill and I used the Mickey Font Cricut Cartridge.
Journaling with a black sharpie and white pen!
Smooch ink and flicked white paint!
With more blessing, I'll have to remove this layout to be published! :D MWAH

Since the Quick Quotes blog will be debuting in a week, I decided I would share 2 layouts I've recently created using a beautiful new line from Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company called 'Damsel in Distress.'
The die-cut chipboard, flowers, gems and clear embellishments are carried by them as well.
This one features my kiddos. I used more of the patterned paper die-cuts and clear butterflies. I love that this paper line is so versatile and free.
I will be back soon to post my project created for Crazy About Cricut AND I'll announce the new Quick Quotes Design Team members too (if you want a sneak peak, they are posted on FB)!

Thanks for joining me in the TOADALLY FROGS Blog Hop brought to you by Karel J! If you're not here from Monica at Scraps To Treasures, you can start at the beginning by clicking HERE.
This card was a lot of fun to make using the Bazzill 'Grandma's Feathr Bed' line and a few of their goodies. The hardest part was deciding which frog to cut! I chose this quirky one from the 'Sweethearts' cartridge. Pink By Design's 'Hippity, Hoppity, Happy' stamp was PERFECT for the sentiment! I used the seam of a yellow shirt for the middle and finished with a bit of home-made shimmer spray!
For my BLOG CANDY today, I am offering a prize package from the uber awesome Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company. They have some great new lines and embellishments out and I'll get ya some goodies if you follow me and leave a comment here (as always, you receive double the chance if you also have my blinky), telling me your funny frog story (we've all got one)! (I often forget to photo my candy, but rest assured, IT IS GOOD)! I'll choose a winner and announce it here on Monday morning.
Now it's time for you to CROAK along to Kristel's (but come back by anytime)!
Enjoy-and have a HIPPITY, HOPPITY, HAPPY DAY!

I used a silver metallic in the background and to accent. Pink satin is ruffled across and black sparkly tulle with white lace appears here and there too! :D
Tuesday, May 17th. I LOVE this layout! As I type this, Amy and I (pictured here with me) are struggling in our friendship :( This paper was pretty much made for me by TC whom I ADORE and it turned out, well-GORGEOUS! Link-up friends, please also go to the 'home' tab and look around while you're here. Consider following me too! It's so nice to hear from you and discover new blogs! Thanks Kristal! I LOVE your link-up parties, and your sweet soul!MWAH!
