Good Morning!

Before I share my Cuttlebug Weekly Be Inspired Challenge, I wanted to share an AWESOME contest going on over at Core'dinations!!! Core has teamed up with the Caardvarks challenge blog for a chance to win a 3 month spot on the Core'dinations Design Team. How cool is that? Make sure you check out the Caardvarks Blog or the Core'dinations Blog for more details.

So Today is Wednesday and that means Cuttlebug Be Inspired # 80 at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! This week we were challenged to make a Shadow Box/Frame. And you know how I love love to alter...yippee!!! One of the things I love about my Cuttlebug is that you can take ordinary scrapbooking items and make them your own. For example, these October Afternoon die cuts....they were just plain ol' die cuts until I ran them through my Cuttlebug for a little extra pizazz. Then, I just layered them and added some other details to this frame for a fun piece. Also, you can easily rotate the photo, too.

Im pretty sure everything looks better embossed!!! Its a good thing only flat objects can roll on through the bug....because nothing in my house would be safe :)
