Heart 2 Heart - How Cute!

Here's my project for the Heart 2 Heart challenge http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com this week. It's been a blast being on their team this month but I tell you I've had to scramble to get things posted.  In the past 32 days I.....
Closed on our home of 10 years
Moved everything out of state
Flew back to stay with friends and family for a month
Bought a car
Gave notice at my job that I've had over 27 years
Held a CTMH open house at my friend Betty's
Had a CTMH team meeting
2 CTMH workshops for my Hostess Clubs
Had get togethers with several friends and family
All while still working my busy full time job and trying to take care of life in general. 

Whew! Next Thursday is my last day at my AMAZING job (sniff) in my BEAUTIFUL little town of Prescott with friends that I've known my entire life (sniff, sniff) to head up to our new place in a Utah where my husband has already been for most of the past year. As much as I will miss my life here - boy am I ready to be living with that guy again!!!!

Thanks for "listening", now about my pics-

The first moment I laid eyes on the current CTMH Annual Inspirations I felt like CTMH had entered my dreams (and my photo stash) to come up with just the right papers for so many of my photos. I was saving this layout which is just the beautiful Brushed WOTG paired with my absolute favorite photos of my granddaughter.  The photos on the second page are just a collage that I had printed from Costco. 

My wedding anniversary is in March and the year I bought her this cute Easter outfit I told my husband that all I wanted was to go to Gymboree and buy the cutest outfit in there and not even consider the price. When I showed him the top, pants, shoes and socks he said "what no hat?" so needless to say I went back and got the hat!!

Fav CTMH Green Challenge @ Heart 2 Heart

Since this is the week for the "wearing of the green" the Heart 2 Heart challenge is to create something with your favorite CTMH green.  Pear and Sweet Leaf are tied as my favs. I used Pear because it's one of the colors in the new paper kit "Blossom".  Shhhhhhhh....I might have jumped the gun a little but I just couldn't wait to share this BEAUTIFUL new paper!!!

For some reason I'm having a hard time adding the link but you can check out Heart 2 Heart @ www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com

Heart 2 Heart Favorite CTMHSketch Challenge




Here are my projects for the Heart-2-Heart challenge (love that challenge - you will too) this week the challenge was CTMH sketches so I used the Make it From Your Heart volume one book.  Every volume is packed full of great sketches and you really get a lot of bang for the buck.

Most of my crafting goodies are packed away for a few weeks so I kept it really simple, only using the Confetti Wishes paper pack along with the coordinating Assortment and Compliments. I hope that making two projects kind of makes up for not stamping or getting very elaborate.

I'm honored to be Guest Designer over at Heart 2 Heart!!! I hope you check them out and play along. 

I chose opposites on the color wheel to go along with the theme. If you would like to know about anything I used please leave a comment and I'll respond as soon as I can.

Retro Sketches # 153

Still playing with the same stamp set - I'm in love with these little guys.  My next card will be the cute bunny.  I got the paper a little too wet using water color pencils but decided that this little pooch just has some terrier in him to account for the texture!  The CTMH stamp set is discontinued but the fabulous UV coated paper is the Close to My Heart Fundamentals and still available. 

I played along over at Retro Sketches #153

Friday Mashup - Tuesday Morning Sketches - Color Q

Goodness the combo of these three challenges was extra fun!  Everything I used I have had for quite some time.  The stamp set is an adorable discontinued set from Close to My Heart.  I have to laugh at the Friday Mashup, farm animals and bling? Who would have known that would actually work well and be so fun??  The DT and card entries are GREAT in all these challenges!!
