Close To My Heart~Scrapbook Challenge #86~Beautiful Mums

Here is my layout for the latest weekly scrapbook challenge. I actually should have posted this a few days ago since it has been done for a couple weeks. I'd already created this layout by using the Studio J online scrapbooking program from Close To My Heart before this challenge was even posted. If you haven't played with Studio J yet, you really need to try it! It is so much fun and so easy to use plus it's FREE to play with. How cool is that? The only thing you pay for is to have the layout printed and sent to your door. You can even get FREE page protectors and/or FREE shipping which makes it even better! Ask me for more details or go to my website and play to your heart's content then let me know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a good one!

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #85~Meet Myrtle

Wow! It's been awhile since I've posted here on my blog. I apologize for being so stinkin' busy lately that I've neglected to post anything new. Time just seems to get away from me and most times I really don't feel that I've even accomplished anything. Do you ever feel that way? Or is it just me?

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my latest layout for the Weekly Scrapbook Challenge. It features photos of our little Crape Myrtle bush we bought a couple years ago. We really were surprised that for being such a small bush, the blossoms on it were so huge and vibrant! Keeping our fingers crossed that it continues to bloom for years to come! (That's pretty much what the journaling will say when I get that done.)

Supplies used:
  • 9034 Magic design book~Final Act
  • X7123B~Cherry-O Level 2 paper pack
  • E1002~Rustic Alphabet
  • C1234~Simple Stitches
  • C1304~Sans Alphabet
  • Z2111~Chocolate ink
  • Z1218~Basic brads
Thanks for stopping in today! Have a good day and a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #83~November

As I was walking up and down my driveway the other day-I do that for exercise as it's on an incline and it's a very good workout-every time I passed the leaves lying on the ground under the maple tree, I kept remembering all the fun my kids used to have playing in the leaves back at our old house many years ago. What wonderful memories they were! I was missing that very much and wanted to re-experience that feeling again so I asked my hubby to take some photos of me acting silly while playing in the leaves. Well, it wasn't totally the same since the kids weren't here but for a brief moment, I felt like a kid again. That's pretty much what I wrote on the journaling tag after I took the photo of the layout.

Supplies used are all Close To My Heart:
  • 9031~Reflections-Quartet-Border Cut Out & Bottom Border-Overlap designs
  • X7110B~Back Country paper pack
  • C1372~Grateful Hearts stamp set
  • C1269~Fabric Finishes stamp set
  • C1432~In the Month of November stamp set
