Cooking With Cricut June Bog Hop

Welcome to the CookingWithCricut.com and PaperCraftingWorld.com Designers June Blog Hop. Get ready for two days of great projects with each day showcasing different designers and projects. If you have come from Marji’s Blog then you are moving along. If you would like to start from the beginning, please head over to CookingWithCricut.com.

This month our hop theme is all about Birthdays and one special one in mind. Our wonderful DT Coordinator Jen Hudson’s birthday just happened to fall on Saturday so we decided to make birthday inspired projects with a “Jen” theme in mind. Our go to gal is a die-hard Florida Gator Fan. So we decided to use elements on our projects that reflected Our GATOR FOR LIFE Gal’s FANCY;  Florida, The Florida Gators and anything that would make you think of the Sunshine State. Jen is the last on our blog line up so be sure to hop through and leave her some extra special love at the end!

Her is my contribution to the blog hop.  I used the cricut lite cartridge Crocs Rule.

I used this cute little alligator juggling.  I thought he was pretty festive looking.   I used bright patterns to give it a cheery feel.  After the card was complete, I went a little crazy with crystal laquer.  I used it on the patterns in the juggling balls, the polka dots on the alligator, and on the flowers to give them all a wet look. 

I hope you have enjoyed my contribution to the hop and that Jen has a great birthday!!

 Now on to your next stop Jen.
