A Dream Pop Luau Layout

 A few weeks ago, my youngest daughter was invited to her friend's luau themed birthday party.  The party was a little girl's dream.  The pictures that I was able to take with my silly little iphone were so vibrant!  I am planning on adding another layer of my favorite photos with Flip Flaps shortly.  Anyway, I finally broke down and opened up that gorgeous Dream Pop paper pack by CTMH that I have been have been hoarding for over a year!  The bright pink shiny embossed paper might be something that you will be seeing shortly in the new CTMH Idea Book (hint, hint!).  All of the flowers were made using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  So easy, with just the right amount of drama, wouldn't you agree?  Here is a close up.  
PS - The gems and sayings came from my stash!

Kaboom CTMH June Stamp of the Month

Welcome to my entry for the June Joyful Stars Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Nickie's blog, you are on the right track.  I literally threw this card together just in time for tonight's hop...nothing like the last minute!  I wanted to feature this month's CTMH Stamp of the Month, Kaboom.  It has a great summertime, July 4th kind of vibe to it, but I wanted to use it to make a birthday card for my nephew, Ryan.  I used just some scraps from last month's Free To Be Me paper packet.  (Hope you were lucky enough to get one!)  If not, you could easily substitute the CTMH Jubilee paper pack.  The card is based upon the Mojo Monday Sketch 349, a great place for cardmaking inspiration.  I hope you enjoyed this simple card!  Now hop along to see what the talented Janice (The Craftin' Geek) has in store for you!
