Cooking with Cricut- Taste of Summer Blog Hop

Today is the first day of a two day Taste of summer Blog Hop at Cooking with Cricut.  
I can't tell you how blessed I feel to work with all the lovely ladies on the CWC/PCW team.  Besides being very talented and creative all these ladies are so caring and positive.  We are so lucky to create for the wonderfully talented Melin.  Also I want to say that we will really miss our DT member Jen this weekend 
who keeps us so organized.  
Jen we are praying for you, your dad and your entire family.  
God bless and big hugs.  
So on with the hop

This hop is all about our favorite "flavors" of summer. Project should include any type of food or drink that is a summer time favorite for you, your family or the recipient of your project.  
Our hostess with the mostest is the lovely and talented
Melin http://www.cookingwithcricut.com/ our fearless leader. Melin will start us off and if you get lost go back to Melin and you can get back on track again.
If you came from Olivia to my blog http://www.ormcraftynights.blogspot.com/ you are in the right place. So let's move on to my project for today.

This is my double page layout
The lemonade is pop dotted and the hate is cut with a craft knife so the little journal piece fits in it like a card holder.  
Ribbon from a bag of tiny ribbon I got at Joann's. 
The pinwheel, the popsicle and the little pinwheels
 are pop dotted do add dimension

Recipe for my layout
Best Creations Summer Days paper 
Lemonade is from Just Because Cricut cart page 69 cut at 4 inches 
Popscicle page 61 cut at 4 inches
Pin Wheel Something to Celebrate cut at 4.5 inches 
Brads and EK Success Corner Adorner punch for corners of mats

Blog Candy

Starting today August 18th through August 30th I am going to draw one lucky winner by Random.org who leaves a comment and is a follower of my blog for a $10  Gift Card to Michaels.  
I will also draw one lucky new follower for a goody bag.  I just realized I am only 7 followers from reaching 600 followers.

Please check out Melin's Paper Crafting World.  She has so many wonderful cut files, kits, and digital files and she is having a great sale through this month.  So check it out.  I promise there is something for everyone.
