FCCB "Save the Earth" Cricut Crawl and Surprise Baby Shower for Shawnee

Today I have both the FCCB Save the Earth Cricut Crawl and the Felicity Makes 10 Surprise Shower.  
Also I can now announce my exciting news.  I have been selected to be a member of the Bitten by the Bug 2 Design team.  I am so excited and honored to be selected for another great design team.  More tomorrow on my blog.  
So if you are here for either one of these posts you will find my project and all the information here in this one post.  Of course I would love for you to follow along with both the crawl and the hop.  :)

So first:
Welcome to  and the SEVENTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!

In honor of our Home Planet, Mother Earth, we're having a"Save the Earth" Crawl...each Design Team member will be featuring an original Upcycled-Themed Project that includes at least one Reuseable/Recycled Item along with at least ONE Cricut Cut.

If you've come from visiting Sonya at you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Save the Earth" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?
So here is a picture of my project:

I went rummaging through my junk drawers to find something I could use to recycle and decided to use some magnets I found in the drawer.
I used the Cricut Everyday Cart to make the cuts  at 3. 50
I then glued them to the magnet pieces and added twine, Glossy accents for the Gypsy screen
and black beads for eyes on the Cricut head.  

Here are the magnets I got at a collectible show almost 10 years ago.  

Next stop.... Go see what Tammy has in store for you today... And when you're done with the Cricut crawl
 make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!
Now it's your turn! Let's see your Upcycled-Themed projects! Make sure to include a Cricut Cut somewhere on your project!
Happy Crawling!
