Chillin' with Melon

Happy Monday everyone! Welcome new followers! Many thanks to you for your interest and choosing to follow my craft making!  I appreciate all the comments and visits to my blog! I have been having blogger problems. For several days, I have been unable to see my followers. I could see the number of followers on my dashboard, but no photos. Also, I have not been able to see followers on other blogs or able to be a follower. I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem. Hopefully this will soon fix itself because I certainly do not know what to do.

I wanted to play along with BugBites Grillin' and Chillin' Bug Hop Part 2. It was so exciting being a team member on the first week of the bug hop with the focus on Grillin'. This week it is all about the Chillin'! I enjoyed all the projects presented by the talented designers. The requirement is to make a project with the chillin' theme and it must include one of the hidden critters that we found during the hop.
One of my ideas for chillin' is a huge slice of ice cold, sweet watermelon.....gotta love it!
Card is 5 x 6/12.
Cricut cartridges:
Simply Charmed - Watermelon page 46 cut 1 1/2"
Lacy Labels - White and green mats. Oops, I did not record the size.
A Child's Year - Phrase "Sweet" page 72 font feature cut 1 1/4 "
Walk in my Garden- Ladybug page 119 cut 1/2". Do you see my tiny critter!!
Swiss dots folder- white mat.
Papers - Colorbok, Recollections
Lots of inking and the watermelon is pop-dotted on the mat.

Hope you enjoy! Try to think cool! We have been having 100 degree temperatures for several days and predicted 100 again today! I may have to buy a watermelon!

  3. That watermelon paper is cute. I love how you tore the edge to make it look like it was eaten too.
