FANTABULOUS CRICUT CRAWL: Button Up For School!

Welcome to Organized Chaos and the second "Fantabulous Cricut Crawl": Button Up For School!  It's Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!

If you've come from visiting Melin at Cooking With Cricut, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

In honor of Back To School time, we're calling our second Fantabulous Cricut Crawl "Button Up For School"...each design team member will be featuing a button somewhere on their project!  Here's a sneak peek of mine...scroll down to see my project!
Each Design Team member will be featuing an original project featuring a button AND a Cricut cut somewhere on the project. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a grand prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a project meeting the the "Button Up For School" challenge criteria!

How fun is that?

Here's my project for the Crawl:
I made a card for my daughter's pre-k teacher using the Cricut "Just Because Cards" cartridge for the apple and layers, and the Storybook cartridge for the marquee-shaped frame.  All pieces were inked and the frame was popped off the page with foam adhesive.  The "bite" mark was made by punching a small scallop on the edge of the apple.

Where are the buttons???  Look closely...they make up the little worm peeking out of the apple!  I used four mini green buttons.  For the face, I used a white ink pen to outline the holes to make the eyes.  On the other three, I punched a small green circle and adhered the circles on top.  I also added little antenna!
You might be wondering what the rest of the sentiment says...well, here ya go:
Hee hee!  :)

Okay, time for prizes!!!  I am giving away a super-fun prize for the Crawl...a brand NEW full-size Close To My Heart clear stamp set!!!  The set is called "Piece of Cake" (retired!) and features different cakes and sentiments, perfect for using on those handmade birthday cards:
Here's how you can win this fabulous stamp set:
1.  Leave a comment on this post...let me know what your favorite subject was in school!
2.  Become a follower of my blog.
Now it's your turn! See if you can incorporate a button on your own "Button Up For School" project. Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project, too!

Next stop...Leigh's blog, My Scrappy Journey.  Go see what she has in store for you today!  And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest for the GRAND PRIZE!!!!

Happy Crawling!

My favorite subject in school was always math, I think that the correlation between lining up the numbers and thinking it through has translated into my love for scrapbooking. I love all you wonderful projects but this card is especially cute,
