the last 2 bitten by the bug challenges

i thought i added these to my blog already..was having some problemswith blogger it may have been that.. but more than likely it was just my forgetfullness:)
ok so the first challenge was use our cricut of course, and laugh often from beyond birthdays cartridge. i made a little 12 page 4X4 coaster calendar book for my dear daughter. eachpage has a calender month and then a funny saying or word to bring a smile to her face. i also used paper dolls cartridge for the clown and martha stewart butterfly punch.

the next one was to use the highway sign from our going places cartridge. at first i was at such a loss as what to do.. a fellow cricut mb friend and i decided to get together an she sent me an email stating i was too far off the 99 ( the highway it takes to travel to my place) which is an inside joke between us :).. hence the sentiment on the tag for this. i found the directions for this on splitcoaststampers called a box in a bag very easy to make! i added a couple embellies to give rose...couldnt give her an empty bag..well i could have but then shed have had a place to stash my MS butterfly punches in! ;)
dont forget to head on over to BBTB and check out the masterpieces by the other oh so uber talented design team! have a fun day hugs shelly

Now why didn't I think of that?!
Your darn tooten I could have hid them and taken them home with me instead of sitting there punching out 100 or so butterflys!!!
Thanks again for the wonderful gift and the bling inside. Youre getting a non-blinger to become a blinger LOL
PS Clowns YUK!!!! but yours is cute :-)
