The quote reads: For all those times you were right, and all those sleepless nights. For all the words of wisdom, and all the times I didn't listen. For all those moments of anger and all those reminders of danger. For all the love you have shared, and all my life you have cared. For the Mom you have always been, and my dearest friend.

The first BBTB #1 (bitten by the bug) project is to use the shape (word) CELEBRATE from the CELEBRATION Cartridge. I chose this to be the first project because of the 4Th of July holiday coming up real soon. You can use this shape (word) any way you like and for any event; card, tag, layout, altered project. Please link in this thread your design so that we will all be able to see your take on this challenge.

Hello all,
I am looking for a few people who love to use their BUGS to design a project..(cards, tags etc.) each week. The plan is each week I will be featuring a different shape or font made from a cartridge each week. For instance, this week the featured shape is the word CELEBRATE on the CELEBRATIONS cart. I would have an example using the word on a project and would like other BUG lovers to create something using the same shape.....No need to worry if you don't have a certain cartridge; if I can get enough people who want to play each week, you could just rotate out on the weeks you don't have the cartridge. So what do you get for being on the BUG lover team.......well just a whole lot of FUN and hopefully to receive more inspiration from others on creating some awesome projects with your BUG........No pressure at all, just plain O FUN. So if you think you would be interested in being a BUG DESIGNER, please email me at
