Stamp of the Month Blog hop - Pinwheel

If you are coming from Nikka's blog, you are on the right track, or keep hopping and you will do a complete circle.

This month's stamp set is Pinwheel:

Love this set but didn't want to just do the pinwheel.  So I created a random stamped background using the star.  I then added the words, but stamped them twice, in two colors.  I cut or the tulip and popped it with some foam tape.  Same goes with the lagoon star!  This set looks awesome with the Dream Pop Paper - go to my website to see that!

Now hop over to Jen's blog to see what great things she made this month!

Something about Mary

While in Chicago at the Regionals, they took our photo and then we did a layout. Here is mine.

Of course, it's not done, but now that I'm home I can add more to it, like a title and finish journaling. 
 We were asked several questions for journaling - Like:
 Why did you join Close To My Heart?
What makes you stay?
What have you learned about yourself?
Nice reflection

More art from Chicago

The photo above is a picture of Monica's family on the beach with a rug under the chairs - how cool is that!?

Some of these items won awards - like the picture frame below and others were auctioned off to raise money for Operation Smile

Above is a chalk board with our new fabrics. I think the canvas 6x6 are the bases!

Love the balloon PARTY banner on the left! 
Cupcake cards that the wrapper opens - all on our Cricut Cartridges!

See the pie boxes above too?!

Paper Doll house!

Learned some great techniques with our markers and stamps!  I'll have to do a class!

The cat has sparkles on the pillow, don't know if you click on the photo if they will show!

Artwork from Chicago

 I can't give the right person credit for these items, but they created baskets from out fabric!
 A great way to use the cubbys
A frame with our paper on it! Love the flowers!

More to come!

Flower Box - Regionals Project

It was fun today in classes. They had the spotlight on the Cricut Machine today! {Go Figure, it's right up my alley!} I DID learn a few things that I'll be able to add to my classes. I enjoyed watching a Newbie teach "the class" and then we made this cute Flower box! We did it with 3 flowers on top! The book just shows one, but the colors with 3 are way better! Enjoy, and I'll write more soon!
