BBTB Challenge and get you some blog Candy!

This week over at BBTB we were challenged by Regina to use the boarder feature on the Doodle Charms Cartridge. We were able to pick any of the cuts from this cartridge as long as we used the boarder feature. Sounds easy right?

Well, if it's been a while since you looked through your Doodlecharms cartridge booklet...let me tell you...there are some awesome cuts! So picking just 1 can be hard!

When I saw how cute the little apple cut was I fell in love and knew I had to make something with it! Since teacher appreciation week is coming up next week, and my last card was picked up by trends magazine...leaving me in need of another card ... I decided that I would make little card for our wonderful teachers.

Scrappin' Sports and More has some of the BEST papers and embellishments for school projects. Therefore I decided to use all SS&M papers on this little card. If you haven't checked out all of the awesome papers and embellishments that SS&M offers make sure to stop by the company website to check it out.

So here's my little project:




Also, this week there is a lot of blog candy up for GRABS! Here is what I am offering this week.



1. Basic Grey mini album: This is a 6x6 album that is bound by 3 rings and has 6 inner pages and a cover and back.
2. A "Tag" stack "Alpine Forest" by SEI: This little book is full of little tags and little papers that have glitter on them. This is BEAUTIFUL! and would be super to use on cards or small projects.
3. Buttons: What would a giveaway be without some buttons...so there are some buttons thrown in for good measure.

If you would like to enter...simply leave me a comment here on my blog (Under this blog entry) make sure to include your email address so I can get in touch with you if you are the winner.

The winner will be chosen by random using Random.org and will be announced on my blog this coming Saturday (May 2nd)

The fun doesn't stop here...there are several BBTB design team members that are giving away goodies this week...so from here you will want to "Hop" over to Sharon's Blog (click here)to check out her giveaway and enter for your chance to win!

Good luck to all that enter! have a super week and remember to check back on my blog on Wednesday for my Wednesday "freebie".
