There is one cut on the George Cartride that I think most of us hardly ever use and that is the BLURB1 & BLURB2 on page 118 of the manual.....So this weeks challenge for the designers was to use this cut. The ladies could use this cut on any type of project they wanted. They all did an awesome job.....We would all love to see your take on this challenge.....remember to link to this thread with your project....
Also remember BITTEN by the BUGS first contest is still going lucky winner will win a free cartridge of their choice..........visit this link for more information.....CONTEST.

The background paper is Black CTMH. The pictures cutted at 3-3/4 and the quotes cut at 0.5", 1" and 2" regular mode for the white paper and Silhouette for the border.
The bubble gum splash is traced by me and cutted with scissors, and the tittle is George at 0.5" cutted with the Expression. All the quotes are hand written by me, and read as follows.
Mami! ~ guess what! ~ I have Bubble Gum ~ I am making a bubble ~ Roll it ~ Flatten it ~ Wrap around tongue ~ BLOW! ~ ARGGG! ~ one more try ~ try... ~ blow! ~ I can't do it! ~ Practice ~ makes ~ perfect ~ YES,YES ~ YES! Woo-hoo! I did it!.
