silhouette blog hop...

 Welcome Blog Hoppers! :o)

I am so excited to be participating as one of the stops on today's Silhouette blog hop!

I love using my Silhouette - it's so versatile and easy to use.  I can find almost any shape or image I could ever need in their store - and they are constantly adding more incredible pieces...at least once a week!  I also love that I can cut out any font or ding on such a variety of materials...and that's just the tip of the iceberg!

I fell in love with the "cute fruits" set as soon as I saw it listed in the "new designs" section last week.  It went straight into my cart and then I daydreamed for a few days about how to use it.  I have several ideas...but this is the one I was most excited about:

super cute fruits...right?!?

I used several different Cosmo Cricket papers for all of the piecing work (see my supply list below).  I love it - it's bright and fun and happy and it's going to look great above my kitchen cabinets.

I also fell in love with the dear lizzy bicycle and couldn't wait to cut it from vinyl and put it on my wall in my office - right above my magnet board:
