I need your help! I made this adorable ladybug for this week's Cooking With Cricut challenge. But I'm not sure what to do with her!

The challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut is "Glittermania"! So I took the Ladybug from the Cold Hands Warm Hearts page kit from and glittered her out. Everything except her hands are glitter...those are flocked because I thought she deserved some warm mittens. :)

The body and the face of this cute little ladybug is spritzed with Stampin' Ups glitter spray. I put her wings through the Xyron and applied red glitter. (I love the Xyron for glitter and flocking! It is so much easier than using glue!) The black spots are a glitter glue similar to Stickles, but the glue is black instead of clear. I also used that for the face and pink Stickles for the nose.

Now onto my dilemma. I don't know what to do with her. Should I put her on a card or a scrapbook page? And what should my "theme" be? Leave a comment on this post by Midnight on Friday January 14th with your idea and a way for me to contact you. If I choose your suggestion I will have a prize!

AND...while you are in the creative mood....head over to the Cooking With Cricut blog to see what the other Design Team members have come up with and submit your own Glittermania project!

I would make a fancy box or bag, fill with V-day goodies of some kind and place her on the front with little flowers and leaves with a cute saying of some sort and tuck into desk or briefcase or into one of the kids lunch sacks.. I use to do these things for my family all the time, they loved it, and it made me happy, I have no one to do that for anymore. Your family will love you even more for that. I think I may take my own advice, who says just cause there grown and gone I cant mail these sort of things, thank you for the inspiration!!! Ronnie

She is so cute. I would put her on a scrapbook page for a little girl that is "cute as a bug". Hope that helps.
