CONTEST TIME..........................

Okay I mentioned a few weeks ago that our next contest would have something to do with jewelry....HUM jewelry and the BUG.....they don't really go together, do they? Our course they do.............All of us love our bug machines and what women doesn't like some type of jewelry......So we have a fantastic sponsor this week:
Theresa had contacted me some time ago about having a contest offering one of her fabulous jewelry pieces and I thought it was a good ideal...her stuff is awesome...Here is a little bit about Theresa Rose Designs:

Theresa Rose Designs is owned by Theresa Martin, a San Diego-based jewelry designer who creates unique handcrafted silver, brass, and gemstone jewelry designs. I especially enjoy creating one-of-a kind pieces with sterling silver and a colorful mix of gemstones and beads.

I enjoy designing pieces that I can wear day or evening, at the office, out on 'date night', or hanging out with friends. I love variety and am always experimenting with new looks and designs. For me jewelry has so many meanings and expressing them is what motivates my creativity. I love classic styles with a twist, something that never goes out of style. While I've been making my own jewelry for over 5 years, I just recently started selling in the last year. I grew up in a family that highly valued creativity and DIY. My mom taught me how to sew when I was 8 years old and I learned how to knit in high school.. So, jewelry was just a natural progression for me. My second passion is scrapbooking and card-making, which is how I found 'Bitten By The Bug', the first site I visit when I need inspiration using my Cricut.

Thanks

Theresa
Here is the fabulous piece of jewelry that one lucky person will win.
It is a sterling silver pendant with two sides - one with a butterfly and the other with the word 'believe'. The pendant is wire wrapped to a pink peruvian opal gemstone and hangs from an 18" sterling silver chain.




Okay so here are the details of the contest:
You will need to create a project: card, layout or alter project based upon the jewelry piece.
You need to use at least one cut from any of the cricut cartridges.
Contest is open to all U.S. and International people.
All previous bbtb winners are welcome to enter.
Only 2 entries per person.
Please link your project in the comment section of THIS THREAD....make sure your link goes DIRECTLY to your project........PLEASE DON'T PUT MY PROJECT IS ON MY BLOG....
Contest will run through the end of March (3/31/09) midnight...Pacific Standard time.
HAVE FUN
