Just the paper please!

Hard to believe that this card is only the beautiful Skylark BT paper?!! Yes, a few of the sheets come in a "use as is" print. Or of course you may chose to cut them down to a smaller size. Here I was able to use a scrap that had the bird printed on it.

Best time Ever!

Another fun week end run. This time we went to Palm Springs for the second year. This time I had my best time EVER! I ran the 5K in 41:41, a pace of 13:26!! Love to run (and walk a little).  :o)

Graffiti Canvas

I had some fun with the CTMH 6 x 6 canvas, CTMH paint brush & fan brush, letters from the CTMH AP Cricut cartridge, CTMH Create a Shade paint and lots of paint. I will post the directions as soon as I complete my other canvas using BT paper. Keep watching!  :o)

Today is the day!!!

Today the new Close To My Heart Spring/Summer Idea book goes live! I think this is one of the best books I have seen in  along time, maybe in my whole 17 years as a (DOTS) CTMH consultant. I am so excited to get working with the new fun color combos and stamps! I have already gotten 5 new MY Reflection paper packets and 10 new stamps sets!!  This spring/summer will be a season  of  many  different style classes being offered using fun new ideas and techniques.
