Mixin' with my brand!

Ok so, uh um, you see I was in Colorado Springs where there's an Archivers and it was my first time and just kind of happened :) 

Ya, ya, ya I deviated again and brought home a few alien products but they all go so well with my CTMH stuff though, don't you think?  

Here's what I used:

October Afternoon Sidewalks Tin Pins & Wagon Train; the blue paper...don't ask me how they came up with that name for this paper :o/

Close to My Heart:
Honey Card Stock and Ink
White Daisy Card Stock
Olive Ink
Twilight Ink
Stamp Sets:  
     Art Philosophy (Happy Birthday!)
     Flirty Workshop on the Go Set (Leaves & Flower)
     Hooray Bouquet (May this be your grandest year yet) Spring/Summer 2012 Catalog, still available

Pears & Partridge Workshop on the Go

SURPRISE!  I said I would show you something every other day but I just couldn't wait to show you this layout.  I used the Close to My Heart Pear & Partridge Workshop on the Go.  It includes the ever so lovely Pear & Partridge Glittery Rub-Ons.  This is made following the included instructions verbatim.  I think (?) my favorite part is the way they show using the snowflake and border stamps (included also) to make a two color stamped border that's quite classy.

Flirty Paper and Autumn Lane Assortment

Well it HAS been a WHILE, a LONG while!!  I had planned on posting during my 2 week visit to see my daughter and her little fam in Co. Springs, but totally forgot that I had already uploaded pics to do it.  So....I think I'll just treat you to every-other-day posts for a week or so - sound good?  

Here's the layout that my clubs are doing in October for their November pics.  I actually ended up making the New England Ivy focal photo mat 5.5 x 7.5 instead so it would be perfect for a 5 x 7 photo, I think it turned out really well, I'll show you one with pics real soon.  

For this I used the following CTMH products:

Flirty Paper Pack
Autumn Lane Assortment
Harvest Baker's Twine
Family Tree Stamp Set 
Flirty Workshop on the Go Stamp Set ( I LOVE the saying)
Make It From Your Heart Volume I
