The YouTube Scrapbook Layout Video Hop (from last week-oops)

I forgot to post this YT video last week.  I participated in a YouTube scrapbook layout hop last Monday and Tuesday.  There were 12 participants in the hop.  The Hop started at Limor's YT channel.  http://www.youtube.com/user/Limor1278?blend=7&ob=5#p/u/5/D4g1rAhcdLs.  It is sad to say that I haven't had time to check out all the videos yet of those who participated, but I will this week.  Enjoy the videos.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!!! :)

CTMH You & Me Layout

Here is a two page layout I made using the Exclusive You & Me Kit from Close To My Heart.  I had lots of fun with the kit and I still have plenty of products left for another two page layout. 
Here's each page separately:

And a couple close-ups of the Irresistibles.  The first one I inked and stamped with one of the ticket stamps and the second close-up is of the banner.  I used the stitch stamp as the string for the banner and the opaques in-between the banner pieces that I also inked. 

Did I mention how much fun I had doing this?  lol  Thanks for stopping by my blog! 
Tomorrow I'm participating in a YouTube Hop so....I'll have a new post tomorrow!!!!

Jack...Bleeding Hearts...and Close To My Heart...

Each spring the bleeding hearts bloom and I think of my Grandpa.  I took this cute picture today of my favorite boy in the whole world next to my favorite spring perennial.  It was a beautiful day.  :)
And speaking of hearts...I am now an Independent Consultant for Close To My Heart.  Close To My Heart is a scrapbooking and stamping company.  I have purchased and crafted with many of their awesome products and now I want to teach others about their products and how to use them in scrapping, stamping or art projects.  I will definitely be posting some Close To My Heart projects here on this blog, on Ustream and YouTube.  If you want to see what Close To My Heart is all about please check out the blog badge to the top right.  :)

Family Fishing Vacation Layout

I am so happy to be sharing another two page layout!  This one was easy because the paper is awesome-AdornIt.  Instead of listing everything I used I piled it in front of the layout.  If you click on the picture and click again...you will be able to open it larger so you can see more detail...if you like!  Thank you for visiting my blog-I love it that you do.  :)

Completed Art Tiles for Marion's Orphan Charity Drive!!!

I finally finished the 4 tiles I wanted to make for Marion's Charity Drive.  :)
I will send them off tomorrow!  I enjoyed doing these tiles because I was doing something to help someone else and I got to do some crafty stuff I normally don't do.  I have more info about this charity drive in a previous post on March 30th.  Thanks for checking out my blog.  I noticed that the last time I posted a scrapbook layout was in March....so that will be my next post.  ;)
