Crazy About Cricut Challenge

I'm pretty excited...I am entering my first blog CHALLENGE!

I have been really afraid to try a challenge, because I just don't have a lot of confidence in my crafting abilities yet, but I figured I should just "go for it"!

Crafting is art after all...and I should just be creative how ever it best suits me and not worry about my project being "perfect".
(This is something I am learning, slowly but surely!)

This challenge is hosted by none other than the very talented Jenny at Crazy About Cricut and is in honor of her  Birthday, which was April 4th!

She also celebrated her 2nd Blog-a-versary on April 16th!

So, if you get a chance go and check out her fab blog and wish her a belated happy b-day & happy blog-a-versary!

The challenge is to Create a project about something you love (It can be your love for crafting, for the outdoors, or for someone you love, anything), or a birthday themed project.

I chose to create a layout about something I love...VERY MUCH, and that is my precious new blessing from God, my Granddaughter C!

Sorry the pictures are not that great, It took me so long to finish this project that I had to hurry and get the photos taken so I could post this in time for the challenge deadline...(nothing like waiting until the last minute!) :)
