CTMH-Scrapbook Challenge #3

Well, I'll bet you've all been wondering where I've been for the past week! I was visiting with family in my hometown up in NY state. My niece also had a Close To My Heart home gathering while I was there and it was quite successful, I might add. She is so excited to be receiving $40 worth of FREE CTMH products. It was great to spend time with the family! The time with them always seems to go too fast. But as the saying goes, there's no place like home! And I am happy to be back home.

Here's my newest layout from the latest scrapbook challenge for this week. This was created using the Then & Now design from Close To My Heart's Cherish design book. I am so NOT happy with this layout but I'm not going to re-do it. I am pleased with how the left page turned out but NOT happy with the right. It seems to be too busy but yet lacks something as well. Does that make sense? The photos, which were taken recently on my past 2 trips to my hometown to celebrate my mom and dad's birthdays, do go well with the colors of the papers. So I am pleased with that aspect of the layouts. I've been trying to use up some older papers and decided to use the Floral Tapestry papers from CTMH and the stickers to match along with a lot of chipboard, which I don't usually use very often.

If you're wondering which one of the 3 sisters I am, I'm the goofy one in the middle!

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!
