"DAY 2" Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the "Flowers, Flowers Everywhere" blog hop day 2. This hop has a great line-up with some very crafty and creative ladies. This is a 2 day hop with a slightly different line-up for more projects to see from yesterday. You are currently at the beginning of this hop, so you are in the right spot to begin your creative journey.

I will be offering a brand new in package Cricut Sentimentals Cartridge as blog candy. To be in the drawing you will need to:

1) leave me a comment.
2) Be a follower.

To get an extra chance to win, leave me a comment on Saturdays and Sundays post. This way your name will go in twice for the drawing. The winner will be announced Monday by 9pm PST. That person will have until Thursday night to reply to the post. If no reply by that time, the runner up will be the new winner.

Well enough of all the hum drum and down to my project:


Not to happy with the blue flowers around the girl, but it was the color my little one is planting.

Loved these heart flowers from WIMG.

The Arch and the Girl are both pop doted up so the picture can go under them

Loved these lady bugs as there are tons around our Roses in our yard.


Cartridges Used:

Country Life
Walk in my Garden

Papers Used:

CTMH - Robin Egg Blue
Misc. Scraps for everything else

Supplies Used:

ATG & Tape
Versa Magic Chalk Ink - Sahara Sand

Cricut Cuts:


Title - "Pretty Pedals" - 2 1/2 inches
Potted Flower Bush - 5 inches
Flower Arch - 6 1/4 inches

Country Life:

Girl - 5 inches

No really special directions on this project. I did ink most of the cuts and used a couple of markers for the eyes and mouth on the Girl. Really an easy layout to make except for the time inking and glueing the pieces down.
Hope you liked my project and I do love to hear all of your feed back. So continue on your journey to One by One the Flamingo's are Stealing my Sanity. If you get lost along the way, please come back here and the full list is below.

  2. LOL would you believe I'm still up? So I figured I see whose posts were up and hit them before bed.... I think this layout is super cute too... I like the colors that you used they are very bright and sunny, happy colors.
    I was going to ask you which cartridge the girl was on cause I thought she looked cute then I read your directions and I realized.... duhn my husband just got me that cartridge like a week ago so I have it and I can make her..... don't know what I'll use her for but she's cute.

    More hopping to do. Thanks for hosting this hop.
