Cricut Craftin' Friends Blog Hop Day 2!

Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop  Celebrating Cricut Craftin Grammys 1 year Blogaversary
DAY 2!!

Hello and welcome back!! So glad to see you back for Day 2 of our 2 day hop! I am amazed at all the talent out there, so you will be too!! I've included the blog hop list, in order, at the bottom of the post. If you're just joining us, click HERE for all the details and start hopping!! Just remember, since this is a TWO-DAY hop,  you have until January 30th to post your comments on both days of the blog hop to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE...  Thanks for joining us! For the hop today, I've created a Memory Box using CTMH "Memory Keeper" which is 9.5x10 and the front is magnetic. Love this!! I use my "Cindy Lou" cartridge and cut out "Doily3" at 7.5" and then I cut the "Flower5" at 6.5". I did it in shadow first then layered it up. I used my EK border punch and added some bling!! I've also made a matching card!! Hope you like it!

For my co-ordinating card, I used the same cart and cut the flower at 4"! I love how it all flows together!!

Thank you again for checking out my project... Now hop to the next stop: Denise!
Remember to visit all the stops for MAXIMUM ideas and LOTS OF FUN!!

Here's the list, in order, of all the participants!!
