BBTB2 Challenge; Music

It's time again for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. The current challenge is:

I'm knee deep in my son and DIL's wedding album and have plenty of photos of music and dancing at the reception.

I searched the internet for mariachi silhouette free clip art and made them into SVGs in Design Space. So fun and easy! If this is something you want to do, check out YouTube. There are plenty of channels that give step by step instructions.

The music notes and title came from the Create-A-Critter II cartridge and I cut them to accompany the mariachi images.

Here's my layout and some close ups:

Right Side

Left Side

Oh my goodness, I'm in love with this two page spread! I cut the hearts from Design Space as well by searching for hearts. I just realized that the "Mr. and Mrs." cut is also from the Cricut. I believe I got that from

Now it's your your project on the BBTB2 site. Be sure to read the rules if you have any questions, but basically you just need to use your cricut!

Additional Note:
So, I purchased these barcode thingies at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in March. If you haven't seen them, they are a GAME CHANGER. The company is called Penless and they have an app. Basically the sticker has a scan/code/mark (I don't know the real name), that you scan and then you upload a video to it. Later when someone goes through your scrapbook, they take their phone camera and it opens up that video. I'm sure I'm not explaining it correctly so if you get a chance, check out their website. It's pretty cool!

So, honestly I almost forgot that I took a video of this particular moment of the reception so I added the "video" to the page.

I know it's not the prettiest thing and if I remembered this before completing the layout, I would have arranged it differently, but it'll be awesome to see the video while going through the album.

  3. I had a friend who just showed me the barcode that has a link to a video. Pretty amazing. I love the mariachi band silhouettes and how you display them with the wedding pictures. Awesome
