It's All About the Bears Blog Hop - Day 3

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to our 3-day hop showcasing, you guessed it, bears!  Well, Teddy Bears to be precise.  Teddy Bears from Cricut's Teddy Bear Parade!

"A Teddy bear is a faithful friend
You can pick him up at either end.
His fur is the colour of breakfast toast,
And he's always there when you need him most." 

We hope you will be inspired by our teddy bear creations.  As you hop along from blog to blog, you may see some blog candy being offered.  Please follow the blogger's instructions to enter and be eligible to win.

Please note: Some of those in our hop this weekend may have been affected by the hurricane and therefore without power. If you go to a link and it does not work or you do not see their Teddy Bear Project, please move on to the next link on the list.  The entire lineup is at the end of my post.  Thank you for your patience, and thank you for hopping along in our Teddy Bear Parade!

I am your first stop on Day 3 of the amazing TEDDY BEAR PARADE HOP!!

Today I decided to make some cute little gift bags:


I have to tell you, I just LOVE these bears!  They are just so stinkin' cute!  I have yet to see one on this cartridge that I don't like.

Today's creation used the Schoolgirl and Teacher Teddy Bears.  I cut them at 6".  The word bubble at the top of each bag was cut using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  The image is on page 65, Shift, Accent 2, < b > cut at 2" on Black cardstock.  I used a Chalk Marker to write the sentiment on the word bubbles.
