6/23 CWC Blog Hop Alligator

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 Larelyn at Handmade from the Heart, 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!

So a big warm gator birthday wish Jen. Hope you have an awesome birthday
and thanks for all you do for Cooking with Cricut.
Gator (and people) hugs too.
I used this cute little alligator from Twinkle Toes cut at 5 inches and embossed.  
The banner was cut from Everyday Pop Up at 3 inches long.  
I added twine and used a tiny letter set I got at Michaels for $1 last year for the wish.
Used a MS punch and lace for the tutu.  A googly eye and gems on the bow.  
Ribbon from my stash.  
The inside was printed on the computer and I used the same MS punch.  





Be sure to head over to CWC and leave a comment for a chance to win some great blog candy! Now on to your next stop Jen at Java Jen Creations.

Also don't forget the CWC challenge this week First Day of Summer= create s project with a BBQ or Picnic theme.
