Surf's Up Meets Mojo Monday Challenge 308

I love sketches, and the Mojo Monday challenges are so much fun.  They provide a sketch or two each Monday, and you get to use your supplies using their sketch.  Since I already had out my Surf's Up paper, I decided to use up some extra pieces to create this happy little 4.25" x 4.25" card.  It literally came together in a matter of moments!

CTMH Surf's Up Layout - Custom Kit Available

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone.  How better than to end summer with yet another fun layout featuring CTMH Surf's Up?  Although Surf's Up paper is still currently available for purchase, this layout features three different retired stamp sets.  I love the way they all work in harmony to create this beautiful layout.  I can't wait to scrapbook photographs of our family time at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon on this layout.  (Yes, we are a family full of Disney fans here!)  I have added the close up photo so that you may see the detail including the bling.  Do you have summer photos yet to be scrapbooked?  I have a limited number of these layouts available for sale for purchase by US customers.  Virtually everything is prestamped and cut for your easy assembly. (Some slight "fussy" cutting of the waves and sun sign will be required for your creative pleasure!!!)  Bling is included, you will only need adhesive and pop dots if desired.  The kit can be yours for $11.95 by clicking the button below.

Tropical Artbooking

I would love to share my very first Artbooking adventure with you.  What is Artbooking you ask?  Well, as explained in a post a few below this one, it is a brand new cartridge available only from your Close To My Heart consultant - me!!! Beyond that, it is a tool that will turn your scrapbook layouts, cards and papercrafting into true works of ART.  You may purchase the Artbooking cartridge today by clicking HERE, and it will be mailed directly from Close To My Heart right to your home.  So as promised, here is my Tropical Artbooking project featuring the beautiful CTMH Surf's Up paper pack.

My inspiration for this project came from the very talented Miss Gingerdots herself, Tina Sutton.  I loved a layout that Tina had created, and I decided that I needed to copy her stamping around the background page, her choices of colors and CTMH paper.  What is not to love about those palm trees that she created?  I set out to create the left hand page on my own with her composition in mind. Here is the layout that I came up with.

And here is the right side layout that I created.

I love this layout!  Thank you, Tina, for the inspiration.
