Grillin' & Chillin' Bug Hop - It's Chillin time

Hi Everyone and welcome to My Paper Love and BugBites first ever Bug Hop, Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop! To celebrate the beginning of summer, Barb over at BugBites is hosting two consecutive weekends of Bug Hops. This weekend it is all about the Chillin’, June 4-6.
If you've come from visiting Kim’s at, you're in the right place! If you just stumbled across my blog and would like to play along with our Grillin’ & Chillin’ Bug Hop, click HERE to start from the beginning. Each designer along the bug trail is featuring a project based on the Grillin’ & Chillin’ theme. What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at BugBites for a chance to win a Big Prize.
But, there’s a twist. Your project must include at least one Cricut cut and at least one of the critters that have been hidden within some of the bug stop blogs. Be sure to visit all the bug stops to find all your critter choices.
While you are looking for the critters, be sure to check out the blog candy that each designer has to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
I am so excited and honored to be part of this HOP. Here is what I came up with. When I think of chillin the first thing that comes to mind is something cool to drink. So here’s a tall glass of lemonade!
5.5" x 5.5" Card
Cartridges - Simply Charmed & Walk in my garden
Paper - Recollections & Bazzill
Paper Edger - Martha Stewart
Ribbon threads from my collections
Sentiment - Printed on my computer

Oh and you can’t go before you see my Blog candy:

2 Making Memories 8x8 paper packs (Just Chillin Boy and Girl) How perfect for the hop right??? 46 stickers and 111 chipboard alpha stickers.

Please become a follower and leave a comment letting me know if you are a “New” or “Already” a follower. Please don't forget to include your e-mail address.
 That's all you have to do for a chance to win the candy! Please, U.S. mailing addresses only. I'll randomly choose a winner on June 7th. Good Luck to everyone!
Now it's time to HOP
Your next stop is ...Amy’s blog, . Hop over and see what she has in store for you today.
Remember, once you have hopped to all the bug stops, it's your turn to show us your Grillin’ & Chillin’ project.
Just in case, here is the list for our buggy hop!
Shelly ***THAT’S ME***
Amy ***NEXT STOP***

Hope you have a GREAT time!
Don't forget to link up your project at the first stop!
