My 2nd giveaway is a set of Cuttlebug embossing folders.
It is the Companion Folders for Preserves.
This set coordinates beautifully with the
Preserves Cricut Cartridge
or any fruit cut!!

As promised yesterday, today I am going to share
a picture of my two adorable grandsons!

These two little cuties are my little princes:

Aren't those little faces just precious!!
This picture was taken last year.
Tristan on the left is now 8
and Vincent on the right is 7.

Now, on to my project for today.

I have to admit, this project was a total scraplift!!
I lifted this idea straight from page 22 & 23
of the Cricut Quick and Easy Idea book!!
had the most adorable gift bag with overalls for a little girl.
When I saw the bag I knew I could make the perfect
pair of boy overalls to match the theme of this hop!!

I used a small kraft gift bag, it is only about 8.5" high.
I inked it up with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.
I cut the overalls from the Country Life Cartridge.
using Coordinations cardstock,
I stretched them with my gypsy so that they
are 4.6" wide x 11" high.
I ran them through the cuttlebug using this cute
checkered folder.  Then I sanding them a bit.
The red plaid paper is from DCWV
Dots and Stripes paper pack.
I adde some brads for buttons.
The fish and fishing pole were cut
from Just Because Cards at 8.6" high.
The grass was cut from
Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake Art.
This is my favorite grass to use!!

The Gone Fishin sentiment is from Life is a Beach.
I cut it at 3.10" h.  I cut the fish off that was part of the cut.

I hope you enjoyed my projects!!
