Guest Designer Tuesday!

Welcome to Guest Designer Tuesday
at Cooking With Cricut! 

Our special Guest Designer this week is none other than Rebecca -- a/k/a The Crafting Misfit.  Although, after you see these projects, I think you'll agree with me that she is no misfit!  Rebecca is showcasing the Cricut Celebrations cartridge today.  So take it away, Rebecca!!

I want to start my post by saying --  thank you so much to the team at Cooking With Cricut for asking me to do this. I was SO EXCITED when I was contacted by them! I have been watching the challenges on this blog for months and participate often because I love them! It is great to be a part of this and I feel very honored that I was asked to be a Guest Designer!  CWC's Design Team is incredible and I get so much inspiration from their work!

Celebrations was one of my first cartridges! My mother bought me my first Cricut for Christmas 2009 and gave me two cartridges -- Celebrations and Stretch Your Imagination.    My hubby bought me an Expression for Christmas 2010. I had wanted a Cricut for a couple of years before getting one so I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited! Then I couldn't live without having a Gypsy; so for Christmas 2010 mom got me that. (My mother is great at gift giving!)  My life hasn't been the same ;). Sometimes I get so bogged down in what is new that I forget my oldies but goodies. So when CWC contacted me about doing this I thought I would explore a forgotten cartridge on my Gypsy.

Crafting has quickly become my passion. I am a Kindergarten teacher and mother of two, so my machines get plenty of use! I joined the blogging world in January 2011 and have found that to be an addiction that I love to feed. I look forward to reading comments from my followers and find I need to check those as often as I check Facebook (which is A LOT). In the summer I spend most of my time enjoying my kids and husband. We try to go to the ocean at least once a week and we camp as often as we can. Camping is an acquired taste that I am still working on but this summer it is far better than last. As a kid I loved it, but now I love real beds and A/C. The only bad thing about camping is my Cricut doesn't come . . . yet.

For my project I created some gift bags with matching tags and a card.  If you like what you see I would love to have you visit my blog!

Thanks again, Rebecca,  for your continued support of Cooking With Cricut -- we love seeing what you cook up each week!

Please take the time to go over to Rebecca's blog and show her some crafting "love!" See you back here tomorrow for our weekly challenge.  You won't want to miss it!
