CTMH Weekly Challenge.

Howdy Folks!!
Did you know that CTMH is having a new challenge every week? I love a new challenge and they have been a lot of fun!

The first challenge was a giveaway challenge and the hashtag for that is #jrlcreativechallenge. The challenge was to make a layout representing your new years resolutions. This is mine!

Be Healthy! Means to me, exercising and eating healthy - and it is working!! 
Be Simple! Means to me, not to buy things i don't need, remove all negativity from my life and love my family.  I am sure grateful for my life!! 

The second challenge was a fun Bingo game! Here is the link to read how to play. Click here CTMH Blog


I picked emboss (with my eyes closed) and went with the "B" column, monochromatic, emboss, washi tape, arrows, and cricut shape included. Since i did not have 1 coordinating picture, i took a few cute ones of my son and i printed them in monotones. I love how it turned out.  


If you would like to join my scrapbook club in #YYC please contact me asap. We are meeting once a month! This monochromatic page will be Feb's project. 

Thanks for reading and please leave your comments and i love to read them.

I love Valentines Day. With all the snow and wind chill we have in February. Valentines Day give me perfect reason for a break of winter with roses and every excuse to be super girly.
There is nothing like a big bouquet of flowers in the middle of winter, for me anyways. :-) Is that weird?

SO this month i signed up to join the Cross Canada blog hop, it has been quite some time since my last hop with this group. I am so very happy to have joined again.
This is my project i came up with.

Enjoy!!

This super fun pennant frame with Heartstrings paper pack and complements. I used an older retired stamp set since i completely forgot to get a new one for this year..opps! I also stuck a cute apple from the cricut cartridge called create a critter. I finished it off with clear sparkles. 

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nancy Klien's Blog
 If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, My Creations with Michelle as she has the complete blog list. 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Card Creations using our How To Books.  So mark February 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
