Special Guest Crafter Today

Today I am welcoming a very special little guest crafter and it is my 4 year old granddaughter Peyton. She loves to craft with Nana and today is sharing some butterflies she created using the Hannah Montana cartridge. We cut the butterfly in shadow from the Daddys girl button at 5 inches. She decorated them with jewels, foam pieces, and markers. I know we had a great time today and she was giving them to her mom and dad.

It's a Christmas in July Blog Hop at Exploring Cricut

Welcome to our Christmas in July Blog Hop at Exploring Cricut. If you came from Liz's blog, then you are right on track! Hope you have enjoyed all the great projects our team has put together for you. We can't wait to see what great creations you have for this challenge. I have created a two page layout and normally Christmas is easy for me, but I struggled this time because it is so darn hot and I could not get myself in the Christmas mood yet. My little granddaughter Peyton loves Christmas and always wants to watch Christmas movies and that did not help. I used the cartridges  Artiste, Art Philosophy, Teresa Collins digitals Christmas Holly and Dec. 25. Below the picture are my cuts and details. I will also be giving this blog candy package so please leave me a comment. You can now return to Exploring Cricut and post your challenge entry.
