What did I do? I took the leap and became a Close to My Heart Consultant! I am so excited to share this news. I will be easing my way into the business so that I can learn everything I can about stamping and using their products first. My welcome package came on Thursday, and by last night I had created my very first layout based on the one that graces the cover of our Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book. Here it is:

Seems I just don't get back here to post anything after I am finished anymore. I have a backlog of projects and cards to post, but no worries, I will get them here eventually. I have a double-entry project to share first. I made it for the new Circle Monthly challenge, and I used the supplies that came in my mystery box from Megan Elizabeth at Above Rubies Studio so I can enter it in her contest as well. Whew! I needed to use at least three colors to design some type of wall art and knew just what to do! I have had some old pictures of me my sisters and myself as kids that I wanted to display.
Here we go!
First off, this is a picture of all the great supplies from the mystery box that I had to work with. I already had an oval shadowbox frame to use as well.
Here is the finished product! I love the colors almost as much as the subjects of the photo! ;) Forgive my photo skills--the frame is black with a bronzed distress.
