Grillin & Chillin Blog Hop

If you are looking for the Memorial Day Blog Hop please go
HERE


Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion and BugBites first ever Bug Hop Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop!   I am thrilled to participate~Thank You Barb!
To celebrate the beginning of summer, Barb over at BugBites is hosting two consecutive weekends of Bug Hops.

This weekend it is all about the Grillin’, May 28-30.
If you've come from visiting PATS at http://www.patsscraps.blogspot.com/ then your in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop, click HERE to start from the beginning.
Each designer along the bug trail is featuring a project based on the Grillin’ & Chillin’ theme. What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at BugBites for a chance to win a Big Prize.

But, there’s a twist. Your project must included at least one Cricut cut and at least one of the critters that have been hidden within some of the bug stop blogs. Be sure to visit all the bug stops to find all your critter choices.

While you are looking for the critters, be sure to check out the blog candy that each designer has to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!

Here is my project for today: I made a Block Party invitation. It seems someone is always having a block party BBQ so I decided to host our very 1st Block Party on our street this summer. This is the invite that I will be mailing out. I also have a little treat for all the kids that come that day. I hope you get inspired by the idea, doesn't is sound like fun??


I used the Block Party Cricut Lite and the Create a Critter cartridges for this project. The card base is 5 1/2, base layer 5 3/8. I cut the chef at 4 1/2 plus layers, grill at 3 1/4 plus layers, Block Party at 2 1/4, BBQ at 3/4, and the drink at 3/4" plus layers. I cut the cute little worm at 1 x .84 using my gypsy to hide feature so I could use my PK stamp for the cute face.  I made the little pillow pouches from a SU die cut. I embossed it with the swiss dots folder and cut another little worm, this one at 1.67 x 1.40. The sentiment~Party Time is from My Scrappy Moms~The Charmed Life. I filled them with..kids all time favorite gummies.....gummi worms, yum!
I also have another critter on my project~which is the "hidden" critter for the challenge. Please look for it in my project as you may need it as one of your options for the challenge you play in. The bee was cut at 2" plus layers from Kate's ABC's cartridge using the baby bee only. Hint-Hint!

Now for some Blog Hop Candy:
1.) Must be a follower
2.) Please leave a comment on this post for a chance to win along with a way to reach  you.

I will pick a winner at random on May 31st.***please note, due to shipping I can only accept USA & Canada entries***


Next stop... is MELISSA over at http://melspurplegiraffe.blogspot.com/ See what she has in store for you today.
Remember, once you have hopped to all the bug stops, it's your turn to show us your Grillin’ & Chillin’ project.
Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project, include one of the hidden critters and link up your project over at BugBites by Midnight CST May 30 to be eligible for the big prize.
