Back to School

Hi everyone, it's Michelle here hosting this week.  In my neck of the woods, it is back to school this week so I selected "Back to School" as our challenge theme.  You can interpret that any way you want to, just include a Cricut cut on a new project and link it up below.  I always take pictures on the first day of school, so I made a layout, with the trusty locker and backpack!  The rest of the design team have some great projects and we hope you'll share yours too!

Gift Tags and/or Gift Bags

Hi followers, Maureen here, can you believe the year is half over?  Where has it gone?   One thing that has been nice about all the rain in Northern California this year is that my fruit trees blossomed with lots of fruit.  I have been making lots of apple butter and peach jam among trying new recipes, so I made gift tags to go with them.  Our challenge for you this week is "tags and/or bags".  Make a tag and accompanying bag or just one of the two.  We love to see what you create and share with all of us.  Please use a Cricut cut on your tag or bag and link it up using the Linky below.

Did you know you can Link up your project if you have uploaded onto Pinterest?  Just right-click on your picture in Pinterest, select 'copy link address', go to our BBTB2 Linky button at the bottom of this post, and paste in the URL from Pinterest and select the correct image.  It's simple, here's wishing you join us.

Water Fun

Hello, Crafty Friends!

This is Laurie from Crafty Sisters Creations and I'd like to welcome you to Bitten by the Bug 2 and our new weekly challenge!  I am excited to host the Summer Water Fun challenge for this week.  Of course, the first thing that probably comes to mind is swimming at the beach or pool, but it could also mean so much more!  How about sprinklers, water balloons, slip and slides, water parks, water skiing or surfing?  I bet you can think of lots more too!

We hope you join the fun this week by linking up your own Summer Water Fun projects below.  But first check out the amazing projects created by my sweet design team sisters!
