CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – Relay Race

This month we are doing something a little different for our hop.  We are doing a relay race.  For this one you will need to go to Nikka’s Blog to start.  There will be an explanation there of how it works.

Here is Vicki’s beautiful card that I worked from:

I chose to take the colors from her card along with the butterflies and incorporate those into my layout:

Supplies used: Close to My Heart (CTMH) Miracle Paper Pack,  CTMH Color-Ready Kraft Borders, Making Memories Photo Decor chipboard, CTMH Colonial White Cardstock, Cricut Cherry Limeade cartridge, CTMH Opaque Pearl Adhesive Gems, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH Beautiful Butterflies stamp set, and Fiskars border punch.

Now move on to Kristie’s Blog!

Sophia Workshop Cards

These were a bit time consuming but gorgeous!  The cards are part of the Sophia Workshop Kit (available through July 31, 2011).

SOS June Challenge

Supplies used: Magnolia papers & overlays by My Mind’s Eye, Close to My Heart flowers, Making Memories Shimmer Alpha stickers, American Crafts Glitter Brads, and unknown journaling paper.  Sketch from My Sketch World.

The June Challenge over at Scrap Our Stash is “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”.  You can interpret this however you want, in part or full.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this challenge, or at least the pictures I planned to use.  The BLUE dress is OLD and BORROWED for my beautiful NEW baby.  Let me tell you, I just love it when things work out like I envision them!  I wanted a soft, elegant feel to my layout with these photos.  I found the perfect paper to match her dress and everything else just fell into place after that.  I used some NEW paper (an unopened pack anyway!) and combined that with some OLD embellishments in my stash.

Miracle Workshop Cards

Here are the cards I made using the Miracle Workshop Kit (available until July 31st, 2011):
