Connie Can Crop is the first stop on this Festive Blog Hop.
This is a one day blog hop and we appreciate your leaving a comment for all of my fabulous crafty friends who are here sharing their ideas and creations.  


We have an awesome sponsor and giveaway for this hop!

  So what do you need to do to win? Easy... become  a follower of each of the fabulous blogs in this hop and leave each of them a  comment letting them know what you like best about their projects. 


Then come back to Connie Can Crop and post that you followed the rules.


 You will have until 12:00 am Sunday to finish the  hop and leave your comments. Winner will be announced on Wednesday Winners at Connie Can Crop.


Be sure to follow everyone and leave a comment  along the way!

I love sugar skulls and was looking for a reason to create one with the Ole cartridge from Cricut. They only have the one skull on the cartridge but with tons of papers and embellishments on the market you can create a different sugar skull every time.
I decided to create a wall hanging in the color scheme red and black.

 
I used some rubons for the flowers inside the eyes, lots of bling, patterned paper, cardstock, and for some added texture simply white Mama's Mesh by Lovebug Creations.
 
 
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!
Come back Monday November 4th for the new Monthly Challenge
and
Wednesday for the announcement of the blog hop winner!
Happy Crafting and Scrappy Hugs,

  Mama's Mesh Monday

Hello My Fellow LoveBugs!!


It's my day to shine here at LoveBug Creations and I had so much fun
experimenting with my I-top Brad Maker and  Autumn Spice Mama's Mesh.

I "whipped" up this cute little card.
 
 
And yes that is also LBC Fun Footz you see! Love me some Dino Dots!! So cute!!
 

 The texture the mesh brought to this brad is super cool!!
 
 
Of course I felt the inside of the card needed some love too.
 

 
 I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!

Sometimes...
Life just takes over!
You know?
And no matter how bad you want to craft
or how bad you want to blog
you just can't seem to fit it in.
Well that seems to be me lately!
And for that I apologize.
This semester of school has really sucked the life out of me.
Biology and Chemistry together makes for some very long nights,
little sleep, and intense stress.
I just want you all to know that although my postings here
may be a little scares, I am still here
I am still planning on crafting when I can
I am still on 2 amazing design teams
and I appreciate you all!
So thank you for bearing with me through
my moments of turmoil! LOL!
Sending you all nothing but

 Here we go down the rabbit hole!!

I used one of our sponsor's really cute svg file's for a fun Wonderland themed layout. I think a few pics of the kids with Alice and the Mad Hatter at Disneyland and riding the teacups will be perfect on these pages!
 
 
The signs going every which way are so much fun. I stamped them instead of using the svg cut out words. My Cricut did not like cutting them out that small. Guess that is why I need a Cameo.
 
 
Love the whimsical paper I chose. It worked out perfectly. And the Bright Green Mama's Mesh from LoveBug Creations is super fun too!
 
 
Love the adorable Mad Hatter's hat!!
 
 
Couldn't leave out the Cheshire Cat!! One of my fav characters!
 
 
I hope you enjoyed my layout! I certainly enjoyed creating it!!
