Fantabulous Cricut Favorite Character Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Fantabulous Cricut Favorite Character Blog Hop" and the introduction of our new Design team members.

You should have arrived here from Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog

We will have prizes (blog candy) on some of the blogs along the way.  You will have until June 2nd to leave a comment 12 midnight EST. We will announce the winners on each of our blogs on June 7. You will need to check back to see if you have won.

A little about me:

I'm Sara Pyper, of Pyper Creations. I am a mother of 2 beautiful little girls, 4 and 2. My wonderful husband works long hours away from home giving me lots of time to create whatever my little heart desires in my craftroom after the babes go to bed. We live on an acreage about 1/2hr from town so that also gives me lots of time in here... no running out for this or for that! LOL It also means from time to time when you pop by you will see "homesteading" posts around here! I love to create anything and everything... You never know what you'll find when you stop by but I'm hoping you find lots you love!!

Now on to our Character Creations!

A character can be -- a number, a letter, a persons personality, etc., so I am showcasing my interpretation of a what a character is...

Winnie the Pooh and Friends... they are quite the characters aren't they?

This is a Winne the Pooh layout I made to celebrate the birth of my newest nephew! You'll forgive the lack of pictures... did I mention we live 1/2hr from town? And they're awaiting pick up in town.. LOL If you take a peek back through my posts in April and maybe early May you will see all the fun things I created for this little man!

To create this project I used the Winnie the Pooh, CTMH Artbooking and Artiste cricut cartridges.
The papers are mostly scrap I pulled out of the bin but I can tell you it is almost all CTMH (barn red, goldrush, creme brulee, lagoon, flaxen, and ruby are the ones I'm sure of)
I also used some CTMH Washi tape and sequins.

These are pocket scrapbook cards I made for a mini page to go with... too many picures of adorable babies to only have 2!

It wouldn't be right to start the blog hop off without alittle blog candy would it? Here's what I have for 1 lucky winner!

This is all the peices you need to duplicate this layout... short of the 12x12 background pages (Can you even buy 12x12 envelopes?) and your own journaling card. It also does not include the pocket cards but if you want 'em I'm sure I can whip em up and toss 'em in too!

Now that you have seen my character go to Christina at to check out her amazing creativity. There is a  list of all the designers on the blog hop below

Happy Hopping and thanks for popping in!!
