If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is The Wanderful paper pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

Wanderful is a fantastic paper pack to scrapbook any travel photos you have!

I have been trying to use Close to my Heart's "Picture my Life" cards to scrapbook more photos. I have used other PML kits and scrapbooked a lot of photos in a short amount of time. So I thought "Hey why not try it here!" I used the Wanderful PML cards with the paper pack, here is what I created for this month:

Of course I am continuing to work on our Disney Album, I used some of the photos that didn't really work on other pages I have scrapped.

Here are some close ups of some of the different things I did with this great kit and PML cards.

Hi Everyone! I had fun creating 4 simple cards this month and am excited to share them with you.

Here is my "April Showers" Card. This is a very simple card only using cardstock and stamps.I used the - D1634 - It's a Shower stamp set

This next one was fun here is a "May Flower".  I used one of the Hostess Rewards stamp sets - C1613 - Paper Birds. The flower is made with 6 stamped Hearts.The accessories I used are: a pink button and adhesive backed pearls (both are old CTMH products) I also used 3D foam tape to give the flower some dimension. 

I recently took a couple marker colouring classes and have rediscovered my love of colouring. Here is another May flowers card.
I used - A1171 - A Little Note and my Shin Han Markers

This last card isn't really Flowers but I was on a roll and having fun and I love this Stamp set!! C1610 - Dizzy Circles. I also used Sparkles -Z1104 but I coloured them with my shin han markers to give them some colour.
