So excited to be selected for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Design Team

If you missed my post yesterday I made a brief announcement that I have been selected to be a design team member for BBTB2.  I am really excited and honored as this is one of the first blog challenges I ever entered.  I love the challenges each Monday and have entered many of them.  So now to be on the Design Team and work with these amazingly talented ladies is a  big thrill. I would like to congrat all the other new Design team members as well including my friend Brenda.  
So I thought you might like to see my Design Team Entry.  
We were asked to make a Mother's Day Project and I chose to make an explosion box.

Recipe of Cricut Cuts:
The teacup was cut at 9 inches from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2.
The flower cuts are from Flower Shoppe pages 14, 18, 20 and 21.  
The Happy Mother's Day was cut from Holiday Cakes.  
The teacup tag is also fom TBBM2.  
All chalk inks are from Quick Quotes and I added doilies and pearls.  

I hope you enjoyed my project and will join the BBTB2 challenge this week which is an Ice Cream Cone Challenge.  So check it out and join the challenge.  
I am also entering this in the My Craft Spot- Mother's Day Challenge
