We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers...whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you would want to see. Thank on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle Stewart at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Famida Ahmad of Get Scrappin with Fami  then you are in the right place!

Here is a close up of different parts of the project
I was inspired by the wonderful projects our fellow CTMH Consultants made at the Album retreat, The memory showcase is usually kept on the table or used a book but I thought it would be fun to use as a hanging project. I kept everything in odd numbers and brought the colors from the top down to the bottom of the project to keep it natural looking. The washi tape, chevron and honeycomb are very popular right now and it seemed to match this very well. The brighter the colors are, the better right? If you see something you like and want to know how it was made...let me know :-) This was a lot of fun to make and i hope you will make one of your own. Let me show you how!

What a smart idea! I love the idea of a big wallhanging. It would make a GREAT Mother's Day gift! And your stamping and artwork is great, too. Love the tri-colour hexagon.

what a nice way to display your hard work! How did you attach each layout together?

Hi Clare,
I used the memory showcase, stretched it out, glued the ribbon on the top with liquid glass and each of the 4 bases I just glued cardstock on them and embellished it. Thank you all for the wonderful comments. I will be making more of them :-)
