Happy Nat'l Hobby Month-BBTB2 Challenge

Hi my crafty friends, did you know that January was National Hobby Month? Yep, it is! So it is my turn to host over at BBTB2 and I chose for my DT sisters to make anything to do with their hobby. That can be anything, kinda' a free for all, the sky's the limit. They just had to use their Cricut on their project. I love to do all kinds of hobbies, but I guess that scrap booking is my favorite hobby besides reading and spending time with my family.  So I did a simple scrap layout of our grand-daughters.  Our youngest grand-daughter (until March, then we get a new grand-daughter) share's a birthday with her Papaw, so we braved the low temps and went over for her birthday. She got a cute little dolly that sings "ring around the rosie" from her daddy and mommy.  Well this is one of Leah's favorite little songs and of course she loved the dolly. Well trouble with this cute little dolly was that Leah's older sister loved the dolly too! So Leah kinda' lost her dolly for a while. I'm anxious to see who gets to play with the dolly the most, Leah or Claire?! lol I suspect they both will play with it, but that Claire will be the "boss" of this dolly. lol

My title is "Round & Round" and even though it doesn't show up well in the photo, it does in real life. My poor picture taking skills are showing well here. lol. My title came from Nursery Rhymes as well as the silhouette of the kids playing ring around the rosie. I used My Creative Time 4x4 Journal Die + More for my journaling box as well as the Get Schooled Stamp set for the lines on my journaling card, and the We Are Family stamp set.  I also used the date stamp from SU for the date at the top of my journaling card. The papers are from my stash and I only know that the flowered paper is from a DCWV stack, The Sweet Stack I think it is called. I hope you come over to BBTB2 to check out the awesome things my design team sister's have for you, they are all so awesome!! Then I hope you will decide to join us in this challenge. Just please remember that you need to use your Cricut on your project as BBTB2 is a Cricut based challenge, but do whatever your hobby is-could be altering items, scrap booking, cards, maybe home decor-what ever is!. Now while you are viewing this, hubby is getting back on track with chemo after his nice break over the holidays. I want to wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year! Thanks for taking the time to stop by for a spell and visiting me, I love when you do! Crafty hugs, Brenda

I am late with comments, but I made it this week. Adorable layout and great colors, I have this cart and have used it for baby albums several times. The NR cart makes it so easy to put a layout together.
