Welcome to Erica's "100+ Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop" over at My Cricut Carft Room Blogspot. This month there are over 100 cartridges being used, WAY TO GO LADIES!! I can't wait to see all the creations everyone has made this month. I love the face that Erica challenges us to use the Cricut Cartridges that we have, plus I have seen some that I want! You should have come from Bee Scrappy over at if not then please start over at Erica's

Now onto my projects for this month's Blog Hop:
This month I chose to use 7 Cricut Cartridges and I made 8 projects to share with you all. So without further ado here they are:
