So sorry....

Wow, I knew I had not posted for a long time, but was kind of surprised to see that Feb 27 was the last time I shared with you.  I have been spending a lot of time locating and scanning old pictures of our children.  My goal in the next few months is to complete scrapbooks of the highlights of their childhoods.  Many of my upcoming posts will be throwback layouts, but I will be using many of the new papers from Close to My Heart.  So, I am sorry for my absence and hope you will check in the future weeks to see what I am creating.

The layout for today uses the Lollydoodle paper packet, a group of fun designs that highlight the colors of Cotton Candy, Juniper, Pear, Sorbet and Slate.  It is shown with stamp sets that feature owls, feathers and good friends.  Here I have designed a layout using Pattern 11 in Make it From Your Heart, Volume 2.  The Strawberry Shortcake was downloaded from the internet and I used the KG Strawberry Limeade font, free from the net, to cut my letters on my Gazelle.

I also used a scrap from Lollydoodle along with scraps from paper sets that I don't even remember the name of to created this second layout.  This is one of the beauties of CTMH.  With the Exclusive Palette, it is easy to coordinate papers to create a pleasing layout.

Last, but not least, is a card that also uses Lollydoodle.  The scalloped square was cut with the Art Phiosophy Cricut Cartridge and the Happy Birthday was stamped with Joyful Birthday Occasions B1419.

I hope you have found some inspiration here today.  Please check back soon!
