 If you get lost on the way here is the order of the blog hop:
Words of Whatever Facebook Page(please like) are more pictures of the layout designed for this hop...warning....I love lots of pictures and there are a bunch here for you to look at!
I just love this Buzz & Bumble paper line from CTMH!  This is the first project I have made with it and it's now favorite ever. I put part of the phrase on my layout "It is the sweet simple things in life" true!
Notice the honeycomb overlay?  That's a new feature from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge from CTMH.
The banner and title are also cuts from the new cartridge :)
Part of the title that is stamped is from a retired stamp set.  I cut the stamp to get the word "in" from things for the title.
Life is chipboard pieces from CTMH, inked with cocoa pigment ink.
The flowers are from the WOTG Buzz & Bumble stamp set...stamped, water colored with creme brulee and sunset ink.  
Don't forget to add some bling!
Here is page 2.  The flourish is another fantastic cut from the Artbooking cartridge.
I love these flowers...they are so fun to pop up here and there.
It's kinda of hard see here...the bee was stamped and colored with a creme brulee marker, then I added liquid glass to the wings for a clear look.
I know I've said this before but I think Abby is the best subject to work with.  She's just so adorable :)
The WOTG Buzz & Bumble stamp set has the cutest old fashion seed pack image.  I stamped it on colonial white cardstock, tore the edges, inked them in cocoa lightly, then adhered it to an pocket from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment, hop through the blog, and enter to win.  Stay inky my hop on over to Lydia's Blog and see what amazing project she has created.
