Thank you… now 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 follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle mycreationswithmichelle.blogspot.ca If you came from Nicki of timelesscottage then you are in the right place! 

For Mother's Day this year I contacted all my family to get photos of themselves. Once gathered after a few reminders I printed them off and made a album to help our Mom remember who she is to us and who we are to her. I labelled each photo with the relationship to her and names, I hope this helps her in the coming months and years. I will share only a few of the pages as there are many, we counted and there are 35 of us as children, spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren.


I forgot to add daughter to this page...
 

These are just a few of the pages, I used all Close to my heart papers for  the backgrounds of these pages.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Donna of  datsmystyledj.

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 our theme is Summer Vacation.  So mark June 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

New home needs a new card!

Back again with a new card for some of my favourite card challenges. At the atlantic hearts challenge we are challenged to use this sketch:
to create something, now I also love to combine this with a colour challenge so ....
color my heart color dare this weeks challenge is to use the colours from the CTMH Georgie paper pack which uses these colours.           This paper pack and colour combo is this years idea book baby pallet, now I am not currently in need of any baby items so I created something else using these colours. A good friend of mine moved to a new to her home and today is her open house/house warming, so I needed a card.
I enjoyed the challenge of finding the shapes from our Cricut cartridges to use and it was fun to put together. There is still time for you to join in the challenges, the Atlantic Hearts goes from Monday to Monday with a new sketch each week and the Color my heart color dare is from Friday to Friday. Have fun playing.
