2.  The project that inspired me was the New Year's Party hat and favors

3.  The products that I used from two of the Sponsors was:
                        American Craft Specialty Paper Foil - Used for hat and dinosaurs  
                        Bazzill Basics Paper - Dotted Swiss - Used for party gift boxes and dinosaurs

I knit small headbands and stapled to the back of the party hats.  After the party is over, all of the girls will be able to use the headband.  One of the items in the gifts boxes will be clip on flowers to dress up the headbands.
I had so much fun making these for my granddaughter's birthday.

Babies are so precious

The Cricut Circle Weekly challenge #16 is called "Cute as a Button."  The requirements are to use the sketch provided by Jana Eubank, 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge , and  incorporate STAMPING and BUTTONS.

Recipe for my project:
Baby Girl - All Mixed Up
Baby Carriage - Designer's Calendar
Baby Bottle - Wrap it Up
I used generic stamps using "Marvy Uchida" brush markers for rubber stamping.
I used four heart buttons on each corner of layout and two flower buttons on the wheels of the baby carriage.
The "Title" I used is from James 1:17 - "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above . . ."
I layered the baby picture and bottle using pop-ups to give a dimension to the page.

Winter House with Granddaughters

Here is my entry for Week 15 for the Cricut Circle challenge.  The criteria for the project had to use metal, white paint and a snowflake.   Also, needed to include 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge.
The house is from Christmas Village, and the snowflakes are from Winter Lace. 

I used my two granddaughters photos for looking out of the windows in the house.  It is so wonderful to have two precious granddaughters
