Floral Happiness Blog Hop

Welcome to our March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  
This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "Floral Happiness" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from March 1 - 31, 2013.  You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying purchase.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create. If you came from Amber of Scrapper's Therapy then you are in the right place!

I am so very excited to share with you my project for this hop! When I make art to show here on my blog, my FaceBook page or at a home party... I always try to make something I can give away or use in my own home. 

This project was made for a friend that is moving in just a few weeks... I will miss her greatly! 

I love that you can make something from your heart with almost anything from Close to my Heart!! I used For Always paper pack, paired with Sweet Leaf and Juniper cardstock. Embellished with Black & Gray Glitter paper, Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Shimmer Trim Black and Silver, Black Tulle Ribbon, and White Rosette Ribbon. New Black Buttons and Sparkles were also used to embellish this wonderful memory book. 

Using both CTMH Cricut Cartridges to make the inside pages was a fun way to make the book one of a kind!

This book was inspired by Close to my Heart them self's:

Your next stop on our "Floral Happiness" hop is Priscilla of Priscilla's Paperie.
