Fantabulous Cricut Crawl!! (with some blog candy!)

Welcome to Paper Maine-iac!! and the fifth Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!

It's Spring Time, even though some places may not look like it :) and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to have a Spring Fling! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original Spring project that includes Pink, Green and Yellow on it along with at least one Cricut cut.

If you've come from visiting Lisa N. at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Spring Fling" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?

For my project...
I created a Spring purse from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge!



And look what's inside....adorable matching notecards!!!



Perfect for a quick gift, or make a few to sell at a craft fair or bazaar! Very simple to do....and you could use any colors/papers, and change them up for the seasons!

My Recipe:
Cricut Cartridge: Forever Young
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper: DCWV
Ribbon from my stash
Gold ribbon embellishment from my stash
VersaMagic Dew Drop Chalk Ink in Olive Green
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen

And now it's time for BLOG CANDY!!! I've put together a scrapping GRAB BAG! What will you win? Only the winner will know!! :) SNEAKY, SNEAKY!! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and make sure to leave a way to contact you. I don't require you to become a follower, but I always love gaining new friends...and I promise that you won't be sorry if you do decide to follow!! I will draw the winner next Monday, April 18th using random.org! (or at least I'll try....I've never used random.org!! I hope it's easy!! LOL!!)

Now it's your turn! Let's see your Spring Fling projects! Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project and Pink, Green and Yellow!

Next stop...Marlene's blog, Scrappin' Cookie. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Happy Crawling!
