BBTB2: Cricut - Down By the Bay with Family

For Mother's Day I always want to do something outdoors - dining in a restaurant on this crazy day is just not for me.  The last few years we have gone on a hike.  There is an estuary by the San Mateo Bridge that has an interpretative center and several hiking/biking trails next to the bay.  We hiked and the kids rode bikes, while sighting birds, ladybugs, spiders, and wildflowers.  It was a nice morning stroll along a route that we have been by hundreds of times but haven't visited in years!

Our Bitten By the Bug2 challenge this week is "Water Fun".  If it involves water - the beach, the ocean, the pool, or fire hydrant, it's good.  Let's get wet and see your fun water related cards and projects - just link them up on the BBTB2 blog.  Laurie, from Crafty Sisters Creations is our hostess, her designs are awesome.

Lots of cartridges used for this layout - I think there were about 20 mats needed, yes it took awhile to cut out all those pieces and ink them.
