While surfing the 'net, and looking for ideas, found the website Take Heart Inspirational Ideas and Challlenges. This web blog is right up my alley. They give you guidelines to use in creating something, using Close to My Heart. Since I am a consultant, and love the CTMH products, I had to play along.
I have pictures of Christina attempting to make cookies when we were visiting Grandmom. They are probably 5 or more years old. Here is the sketch that was posted for us to use. And were were to use Close To My Heart product.
This is what I came up with!
I used the new paper pack Wanderful. For the circle in the background, I cut the shape using Martha Stewart circle punch. This anchored my pictures. For the journaling, I used just the word Explore. This was a stamp that was included in the Workshop on The Go set for Wanderful paper. The banner I cut out using my Cricut, and I used a the set of alphabet stamps, called Atomic, to put under the banner. For the 3 circles on the sketch, I found a cricut cut out using flowers. I used the background cut out for this, but I cut the flowers from a discontinued paper pack. The title was also cut from Cricut. All that was left to do was to add my pictures! I like how this turned out!
