Cricut Weekly Challenge #28: Creepy Crawlies Challenge

This week's Cricut Circle challenge asked us to create a scrapbook page about the things that bug us..and we had to use a bug somewhere on the layout.

I also used this challenge to try out one of the Jana Eubanks sketches -- loved that she shared these on her site.  I love her layering and I feel like her sketches really do mirror the types of things I like to do.  So it's super great to have printed out the 7 pages of sketches for inspiration!

I chose a sketch from the first page, and I decided to do a layout about WHY I do silly things with my friends and then have PROOF (as in a picture).  The picture below is from a fun-filled bachelorette weekend in Sedona/Las Vegas.  I think this church was in Sedona, and we weren't able to go visit it because it was closed, so I decided to search for God in the mailbox.  WHY?  Oh my....the things I do.  However, I gotta admit, this picture always make me break into a huge smile - guess the embarrassment of the proof was well worth the memory.
