Bitten by the Bug2 Challenge

This week's cut for the BBTB2 challenge is from Disney's Hannah Montana cartridge. Using the Rock Star feature it is the 4th row, 9th button from the left, "Ready to Rock".

When I first learned about this challenge I did not own this cartridge, but ... I do now!  This gig at BBTB2 is costing some bucks ... on the other hand, I'm also growing my Cricut library by leaps and bounds and ya know.. you never can own too many Cricut cartridges... right? (Now I just need to buy more shelves to store all the new carts!).

Anyhow.. enough yapping.  On to the inspiration piece...


Okay, so here's the deets:  Just about everything you see is Dear Lizzy and American Crafts with the exception of the thread and the white ribbon that I found in my stash.  I pulled out a Martha Stewart border punch to add some interest to the blue paper I used as a mat.  My Gypsy got a work out as I welded a tag from Sweet Treats (my go-to cartridge for tags!) to the Ready 2 Rock graphic's shadow.  I also cut the "2" out a second time to add to the bottom of the layout.  The photograph is from 1984! (I told you I was way behind in my scrapbooking!! LOL)... Actually this is a picture of my oldest daughter when she was two, rocking in the maple rocking chair my father bought for me when I was pregnant for her!  Thus, I found it quite appropriate to use this photo with the graphic Ready 2 Rock (get it, 2 years old... in a rocking chair)... bahahaha.

Now don't waste any more time reading this silliness and get on over to the BBTB2 blog to join in the challenge, will ya?

How cute this is, Beth! I think that photo is perfect with your title. ;)
And how awesome is that big title! Love that, and love all the Dear Lizzy. The hanging clothes and the flower are fabulous. Great job.
Think I'm probably one of the rare few that doesn't own any kind of die cut system.:)
