Zions - NO Arches National Park

I scraplifted this layout from the Close to My Heart CEO, Jeanette Lynton.

I titled it Zions by mistake. The title should have read Arches. I used liquid glass on the letters, so I was unable to remove them. I could have used more paper and redid that part of the layout, but I decided against it. I am an airhead, so leaving the layout with the incorrect title is so ME!

This layout was scraplifted from the Close To My Heart, Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book. I love, love, love the new Twitterpated paper pack.

Lets Have A Party!

These cards are for a CTMH party at Melissa's house tomorrow. They are 5 cards for $5 or FREE with a $30 purchase. To qualify for the FREE cards your $30 purchase must be ordered and paid on the day of the party. And everyone who attends will get a FREE gift!

This 3" x 3" card is scrap lifted from the CTMH Wishes Card Confidence Program (page 19).

This card is 4" x 4". I used color pencil to color the little princess. I need to work on my coloring techniques that's for sure!

The idea for this 4" x 4" card came from CTMH Spring 2009 Idea Book (page 55). I kept the card simple. I love that cute bird!

This is a 3" x 3" card. It uses older paper (Let's Get Together). I love how it turned out.

This 4.25" x 5.5" card was scrap lifted from Jena. I always can find great ideas from her.

Happy Father's Day!

My father celebrated his 69th birthday on Father's Day! Therefore, he got two cards.

The birthday card was scrap lifted from Jennie Hilligus. I fell in love with that card the first time I seen it and knew I had to make one!

Beach Fun

I had so much fun making this layout. I can't wait to put pictures of the Oregon Beach on it! I got the idea from the OAHU layout found in the Summer 2009 CTMH Idea Book (page 23). I love the Moon Doggie Paper Packet and plan on making more fun layouts with it.
