Bitten By The Bug 2--Sunglasses

WOW! Bitten By The Bug 2 for two weeks in a row....maybe I'm getting back into the swing of things, LOL! This week our challenge was chosen by our fabulous leader Heather. I felt so guilty when Heather picked the challenge a few weeks ago and I didn't participate....hopefully this will redeem myself :) Anyway....Heather picked the sunglasses on the Forever Young cartridge. I am really hoping that I will need some sunglasses soon.....spring is having a little trouble here in the Chicagoland area. Please remember to go back to BBTB2 and check out all the other inspiring things my Design Team sisters did with this cut and then play along in the challenge with us :)
I was having so much fun with this one that I made 6 of them!! Love the way they turned out. Super Fast and Super Easy!!
