Bitten by the Bug Challenge!

This week's BBTB challenge was to use the cricket cut on the, Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I really struggled with this because I couldn't get the eyes right. I didn't like the 2 black holes that were supposed to be eyeballs. So I ended up punching a tiny white circle and an even smaller black circle. I tried adding a white highlight to the eyes. Still not sure I am crazy about the eyes, but after a couple hours of obsessing about it, I decided to throw in the towel! The paper is Basic Grey and Making Memories. The branch was hand cut and run through the Cuttlebug. I added Prima flowers and leaves. The sentiment was actually a sticker.

YEA! Today we finally got to go swimming in our pool! Summer has finally arrived in Chicago!!!
