Welcome to BugBites first ever Bug Hop, Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop!
To celebrate the beginning of summer, Barb over at BugBites is hosting two consecutive weekends of Bug Hops.
This weekend it is all about the Chillin’, June 4-6.
If you've come from visiting Maureen at Mo’s Addiction, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop, click HERE to start from the beginning.
Each designer along the bug trail is featuring a project based on the Grillin’ & Chillin’ theme. What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at BugBites for a chance to win a Big Prize.
But, there’s a twist. Your project must included at least one Cricut cut and at least one of the critters that have been hidden within some of the bug stop blogs. Be sure to visit all the bug stops to find all your critter choices.
While you are looking for the critters, be sure to check out the blog candy that each designer has to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
For this hop, I decided to post my favorite chillin’ drink in a scrapbook layout! My friend Emily and I created this while relaxing beach side at my parent’s cabin in Northern Minnesota. We did take a trip to the store to pick out our goodies, so we knew it was going to be pretty delicious. After some careful considerations we named it “Beach Bum.” I have made it for several friends, and they love it! (It you do not like alcohol, you can eliminate the alcoholic beverages, and mix Mt. Dew with Blue Raspberry Mixer (and if you add a little Sprite, I bet it would be delicious too!) The best part is that it turns a beautiful turquoise color!
And a close up of the recipe
I used Echo Park’s Summer Days collection for this layout. My cricut cuts were “BEACH BUM” from the Making the Grade Font, and Designers Calendar (Martini glass). I used stickles for the glitter, and my i-rock for the jewels! I love my i-rock so much, that I thought, why not give one away! So if you would like to win and i-rock with some jewels, please leave me a comment. I will announce a winner on June 7th! If you would like to follow me, that would be so nice, but I will not require you to do so. So make sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win! Here is a picture of my giveaway! (if there is space in the box I might throw in a few little extras too!)
Next stop...Jen H’s blog, Krafting & Kreating with Jen. See what she has in store for you today.
Remember, once you have hopped to all the bug stops, it's your turn to show us your Grillin’ & Chillin’ project.
Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project, include one of the hidden critters and link up your project over at BugBites by Midnight CST June 6 to be eligible for the big prize.
